Just returning from a trip to Paris, Lake Como and Venice. Our dinner at Hosteria del Platano was our favorite. Not only was our meal delicious but the service was friendly and gracious. The local feel and the gorgeous view of the lake was perfect.

having eaten at some of the world's best, this is high on my list. The owner, Norma, is as good as it comes. Her food is terrific! Her Italian lessons as well. do not miss this wonderful experience near Varrena.

The restaurant is small and quaint on the main road in Fiumelatte. We were the only diners that evening and three of our party had the same pasta, with lake trout. The servings were far too small although the food was good. My meal was average at best. Very friendly owner and good service.

The owner was very attentive and helpful. We dined late one night and were the lasts ones in the restaurant. We had four different entries and everyone enjoyed them as we did with the main courses. The pasta was amazing, fresh, hot and mouth watering. Two of us had deserts that were creative and good. Good value for good home cooked food.

We felt so in-the-know going here! We wouldn't have found this place if we hadn't been staying just up the hill. Very nontouristy. Norma is great. Cocoa ravioli is the meal we keep talking about as one of our favorites in Italy. Worth the walk. A mile south of varenna!
