With all the choices in Varenna, I'm sure you can't go wrong. However, the food was delicious, but the tiramisu is a MUST! Don't miss out! I love the ambiance of the restaurant. Very cozy and charming. The only reason I gave it 4-stars is because they don't have a lot of options with the meat. Almost everything includes fish.

The service at this establishment is the main issue our group of 5 agreed on, as we had different views on the food. One thought his baked lamb ribs was the best he had ever tasted; my beef fillet was pretty good; another liked his grilled white fish. However, another beef fillet was way undercooked, sent back to the kitchen... More

I arrived without a reservation, yet I was made welcome and offered a good table. I would recommend reserving your table though, as the place filled up completely shortly after I entered. The menu focus is on local cuisine, with the usual salad, antipasto, first plate, second plate, dessert etc, including locally caught perch and herring, complemented by a comprehensive... More

It took us two evenings to find the restaurant nestled in a small cobbled street but it worth the wait. The food is really good, fresh and local. The way the dishes are prepared is quite creative. The service is adorable. Good wine. Worth the visit

You can often tell a good restaurant by how many locals dine there. Osteria Quatro Pass is a hit for locals and tourists. It's not a large place, and it fills up during peak time. They had a good wine list and delicious food. The service was pleasant and efficient. It's not too loud, but there is the energy of... More

This is a small, warm, cozy, fragrant and friendly restaurant. Our food was absolutely delicious, and the service was both friendly and professional. A lovely evening. We wanted to return another night, but it was full. The best places in Varenna require reservations, at least on the weekend.

Quatro Pass osteria is a busy place. I had dinner there on the recommendation of the Albergo Milano front desk. The place was filled with visitors mostly from the near by hotels & albergos, the attention was prompt and efficient, following italian habits, dinner is ussually served, or should I say service starts around after 20:00. Varena is an small... More

We saw that this place had very high marks on review, and we decided to try it out. The praise is well-earned. The food is great, and the staff are open and welcoming. We liked it so much we went back for dinner a second time.

We stopped in to Quatro Pass and got a table on a Friday night in October without needing a reservation. We ordered some house rosso, which was more than fine as most Italian house wines are. The service and the atmosphere were efficient and pleasant. I ordered a lake fish marinated with vegetables. I think it was good, though a... More
