lasagna was good, but pasta was not exciting. It was a convenient place to grab a meal with a good view. Nice to stroll the surrounding areas in this beautiful town.

This establishment was warm, friendly and frequented by locals. Service was smooth, welcoming and unobtrusive. Had excellent dish of mussels for appetizer and the main plates were equally impressive. Reasonable prices, family friendly and highly recommended. Would go back if we're ever back in Varenna.

We visited here on a Saturday evening and were terribly disappointed. The fact that we were the only people there should have alarmed us. One of us had tortellini with some sort of alfredo sauce and cubed ham on top. The sauce was straight from...More

After traveling from the US to Varenna, a full day trip, we settled into the Hotel du Lac and found this restaurant right on the square. Very convenient. We ate outside in September, but tourists were walking by. Many locals went inside. Very good pasta...More
