Refreshingly different menu for Italy. Quiet location, exceptional service. 'Risolio' was an interesting alternative to traditional risotto, 'raw fish' was very good - the chef's skills shine in his sauces.

I went there for my birthday with great expectations but I left very disappointed. The food was good, nothing special, but the service was very very poor for a restaurant with a Michelin Star. Considering what I paid for our dinner I don't think I am going back!!!!!!

As this was my first time here my review of the food is OK and not super. I need more for that but to start with the scenery; it's a nice place with a lot of separate rooms. Because the weather was nice we sat outside for lunch. Strange enough we were the only persons in the place. We were... More

Very few restaurants manage to get it all right, but Ilario Vinciguerra shows that it can be done. From the moment you walk in the door, it is obvious you are in capable hands and will have an amazing evening. The decor is starkly modern, yet not uncomfortable, somewhat at odds with what you'd expect in this beautiful old villa.... More

My wife and I made a detour from a long weekend in Varese to try out this restaurant, rated the best in the area by the Gambero Rosso guide. It is certainly fancy, evidently striving to become an industry à la Paul Bocuse. The decor is opulent, teetering on the edge of being over-the-top. The food, while good, is not... More

Set in a villa in Gallarate ( not a very nice suburb of Varese), we had an excellent meal. Few clients that day, the hostess and wife of Ilario Vinciguerra was charming doing her best to make our lunch a pleasant experience.

New challenge for the young Neapolitan chef who moves from Galliate Lombardo Gallarate, cultural capital of the province of Varese.Gallarate, March 15, 2011 - Ilario Vinciguerra, opened his new restaurant in the heart of Gallarate, built in a charming Art Nouveau villa from the 900 surrounded by a beautiful park.Once through the gate, you leave the city behind and immerse yourself in an atmosphere of chic decor. At the entrance, the wonderful collection of brandies Romano Levi, "the grappa angelicofa proudly displayed and leads to the cellar in sight.On the ground floor seats 35 arranged in several rooms create the ideal environment to relax and enjoy the rich cuisine of chef patron suggestions, enhanced by the impeccable hospitality in the hall of his wife Marika. Upstairs large spaces reserved for events, with a capacity of 80 seats. The challenge of Ilario is to combine research and development with tradition, in the garden, next to the beautiful gazebo, an outdoor laboratory where they will be built rediscovered some old techniques (bread baked in a wood and coal firing) Hilary has a multifaceted personality, he was trained in Italy at the school of Don Alfonso Iaccarino, then in France and abroad in prestigious restaurants. Ten years ago has finally landed in the local Galliate, laboratory of ideas and culinary creations, where, between research and innovation, creativity and rigor Mediterranean, has come up with a kitchen that has brought into habits of tasty gourmet Lombard.<< For us it is an important moment - says Hilary - a step-awaited time, the possibility of a large space in which my wife Marika, my staff and I can speak the best and to continue our challenge: the dialogue between the Mediterranean cuisine and eating habits Lombard rigorous and well-established.
