Passerini in the town of Chiavenna has several entries in the Michelin guides, so many travellers wiill feel that's enough of a recommendation. But our party of four turned up without a reservation on an unusually rainy summer night in this alpine region of Italy, and tables were at a premium. Room was unhesitatingly found for us next to the bar, a fresh cloth laid and a feast duly delivered. All very simple: the best ingredients woven into magic with a deft hand. Service lovely, the owner proud but delighted by our enthusaistic response to the specials (mushroom dishes) and the astonishing tagliata di manzo. Best for last: a passionfruit semi-freddo that defies description. Wonderful !

Passerini stands for constant quality. No surprise but fair dishes, especially fish and seafood. Never miss the sfogliatina at the end.

Nice location in the cellar of an ancient palazzo. Ideal for rainy weather.

Not cheap
