My wife and I ate at Osteria Quatro Pass not once, but twice during our honeymoon in Varenna. It is a beautiful restaurant with vaulted, stone ceilings. The food is phenomenal (we loved the lasagne bolognese and the cuttlefish linguini).

The food here was average. The octopus starter was very good but the pastas were just ok. We had much better food in Varenna for more reasonable prices. We had a reservation for dinner and they sat us inside. The setting was nice but it...More

My husband and I decided on Quattro Pass after both our Rick Steves book and our AirBnB host recommended it. First, it is on a romantic little back street in a quiet part of Varenna. The ambience was perfect and the service made it even...More
