Away fro the beaten path this small gem of the lake gave us the best meal experience so far. The risotto with tartufo and speck was absolutely amazing, the best ever without any doubt. The hosts Rossella and Moreno are awesome and we even enrolled...More

The evening started with one of the owners picking us up in a van from our hotel for a long evening enjoying course after course of delicious food. Definitely go fo the fixed price option. Plan for a meal that takes a few hours.

Wonderful meal. Everything Rick Steves raves about is true. Rosella (wife of chef) picked us up at ferry in Varenna. Good thing because the drive is treacherous. Even if you have a car, we recommend taking the ride as there are numerous hairpin curves and...More

Nice meal! We had skewers and entrecôte. Good service and nice to be picked up from Perledo. Side orders too expensive and not worth the 6 euros.

This restaurant was recommended to us from out hotel in Varenna. It is so good. The menu is a bit limited but that was not a problem. We each got a fixed price meal..3 courses of amazing food for €30 each...a steal in our mind....More

On our return to Varenna we made sure to visit Chef Moreno again for his classic Italian cooking lesson. Everyone in our Go Bucket List Travel Private Tour group had a fantastic time. Don’t miss it!
