Our experience was that the food was quite good, the ambiance cozy and charming, and the service very good. Considering the quality of the food and the location, the prices are reasonable. We were there about 6 months ago, and every table in the small room was taken, so it is important to book ahead of time.
The gentleman who acted as waiter/bartender/maitre 'd had his hands full, but he moved like lightning, all the while maintaining grace and good humor. He attracted admiration from the patrons when he leapt up onto the top of the bar in order to reach a particular bottle of wine stored on one of the very highest shelves.
As we left, we compared notes with another couple who told us they were also quite happy with their dinner. If we had been staying longer in Varenna, I'm sure we would have been back.
