Restaurant about 1 km from the centre of Varese in the hills full of similar villas, all with ornamental period gardens. The villa has maintained its ‘800 charm inside and the all the furniture, plates and approach alludes to this period. Classical Italian food but...More

Beautiful atmosphere outside and a quaint place with only several tables. It appears to be family-owned and the sweet, older woman who took our order and served some of the food felt like a long-lost Italian grandmother. Service was excellent though quite slow. The tartare...More

We have visited this restaurant by accident on Valentine’s Day, looking for a place not very far from the Malpensa airport with good Italian food. Quite elegant (as we were traveling and wearing casual cloths, we felt a bit under-dressed), very good service. The food...More

A working dinner, on a hot summer day. The aperitif served outside, in the private garden is something not to be missed. Spaghetti all'astice (lobster) were good, but not outstanding. The dessert is proposed out of a chariot full of everything you can dream of.

A sophisticated restaurant, very enjoyable, intimate rooms, and a lovely reception area, and a nice touch to be welcomed with some nibbles and a glass of prosecco. When I think of a quintessential "nice" place to dine, to go for a romantic meal, to take...More

Enjoyed a lovely business lunch with fresh truffles on a lovely steak tartare starter and just perfect risotto. Beware the dessert trolley - you will find it very hard to resist. Very good wine list. Would love to visit in Spring/summer as the garden looked...More

The restaurant can boast of the ideal setting, the perfect atmosphere and the fabulous service. The owner gives a warm and homely welcome, which is absolutely unique. However, the food was slightly disappointing. Some of the dishes appeared to be experimental, like shrimps in tempura,...More

Lovely setting in an old Villa. Love the glass of prosecco and appetisers offered as you arrive. Beautiful pastas and the pheasant game pie was delicious. Main courses were then too heavy for us. They looked after our 5 yo daughter beautifully as well and...More
