We had a pleasant stay during all dinner. All dishes are really well cooked and well presented. The only improvement point is the menu a bit too poor. Wine list is quite rich and service is quite efficient and friendly.

Vecchia trattoria della Pesa was recommended to us by the wonderful receptionists at the lovely Hotel di Varese. The restaurant, located at the vibrant old center of Varese, was full when we arrived and only one skillful young waiter served all the guests as his...More
