Ate at Ristorate Il Sole in Varenna with my husband and two children, and it's the worst meal we've had so far this trip to Italy. We ordered spaghetti bolognese (pretty good), pizzoccherri (pasta with cheese & potatoes, which was good), insalata caprese (terrible, pale salmon-colored, mealy tomatoes), vegetable soup (looked, smelled & tasted like canned veggies tossed into hot water), and grilled chicken breast (underdone to the point that it was crunchy in the middle). We were disappointed, as this restaurant was recommended by our Rick Steves guidebook. Nilus Bar, on the water, was much better, and we returned there for our final dinner.
