The wow effect on arrival quickly dissipated when a wine glass was knocked over by the waiter with barely an apology and the need to request a refill ( for which we were charged). The building and garden were stylish and create a nice ambiance. The wine was very good, but the food with little exception left a lot to be desired. The rabbit was tough and undercooked, and a struggle to get off the bone. The salmon was extremely salty, and believe it or not, also tough. The white asparagus salad as starter was dull. Only the excellent cheese board rescued an unpleasant evening. Most galling of all was the lack of attention or interest of the staff when we complained.

Gentilissimi clienti,
con estremo disappunto apprendo che la nostra spiegazione riguardo la lamentela sul piatto, venga interpretata come una mancanza di cura del cliente. Il personale, infatti, per ben due volte si è preoccupato di scusarsi, fornivi una spiegazione e al termine della cena omaggiarVi della portata da voi non gradita, ma comunque, interamente consumata.
Ovviamente fosse stato fatto presente che anche altre portate non sono state apprezzate, vi sarebbe stato riservato il medesimo trattamento.
Mi scuso con voi per l'errore del cameriere, ma tengo a precisare che sul conto il calice non è stato addebitato.
Sperando in una vostra successiva visita presso il ristorante Annetta vi porgo i mie cordiali saluti.

We had a really bad trip to Varese, the thing that made it worth it was the dinner at Da Annetta. The portions were small but it was like art and music made in food. Just a wounderful experience! Dont miss out on this place!

We had a quiet weekday night dinner here and were very impressed by the food. All around a great meal, though the wine was a bit more expensive than we'd gotten used to by this point in the trip. A pretty restaurant.

We have been to this restaurant a few times hence choosing it for a special occasion. Well the service was slow, the food is nice but there could be more on the plate.

But the worst thing was that the waiter we had took our coffee order and then his shift ended and he went home. We were left sitting there like a bunch of idiots.

For this reason, I'd say we won't be visiting again. It took nearly 3 hours for three small courses.

If you're charging high.end prices and a €4 cover charge for your guests, I expect my €60 bottle of wine to be poured by a waiter and not by me. I can get more satisfaction for less money and will not be returning.
