Service is wonderful-the owners are friendly, speak English, you can sit outside or in, fun place to eat. Butter sage ravioli is amazing.

Restaurant is in a small courtyard just off the main square in Varenna, but without a view of the lake. Nonetheless, it was very pleasant sitting in the outdoor area - quiet, with the occasional passing pedestrians.
The menu was not large but had a good range of dishes. After an entree of beautiful tempura vegetables, we selected the filet of beef and the local fish for mains. The fish was excellent, but the beef was a little too rare for my wife's taste, and accompanied by few vegetables and spartan pepper sauce. Tasty, but could have been better.
For desert we shared an absolutely delicious fruit crepe.
Waitresses were charming and friendly..
Price was very reasonable for the area. Mains in the $14 to 25 range.

Happy to recommend to other visitors.

One of the many excellent restaurants in Varenna. We went on a weeknight, when it was not busy. One could sit inside or outside. We sat outside, and while it has no particular view it was extremely pleasant.

All the food was very, very good, with a seafood with spaghetti that was to us an incredible dish.
Excellent service. I would love to go back.

This restaurant gave us excellens service and a very well tasting and nice presented dinner. The restaurant is a pearl in Varenna. It is located close to the the seaside but in a more calm and nice environment than the more crowded area.

Rule #1: Don't give up trying to find this place. Once you get here, you will enjoy the family-type atmosphere. The fish risotto for two was very enjoyable and fresh. The combination of apple and prosciutto was truly splendid. The wine list is short, but acceptable. We shared 2 half bottles, an Arneis and Greco, which paired nicely with our meals. This place is not spectacular, but solid.
