We came here on a Rick Steve's recommendation and with three couples we loved this place. Food was very good, service was outstanding and nice quaint little atmosphere right in the heart of this gem of a city on Lake Como. Probably one of the best restaurants on our trip and prices were quite reasonable as well. I have heard... More

Went here without a reservation. The restaurant is very nice, the food was very good as was the wine. The service was very welcoming. The only thing I didn't like was the tv (music channel) being streamed into the restaurant - my advice would be to turn off the screens and just play music.

We had a wonderful dinner in this little place on one of Varenna's tiny alleys. I loved the eggplant parmigiana antipasto and pistachio crusted salmon. Dominic was wonderful in making suggestions and helping us with our Italian. This was a favorite meal in an extended trip to Italy.

The place does not look like much from the outside, located on a steep alleyway between the lakeshore and the main Piazza. However, the interior has been tastefully remodelled, and has plenty of tables in three seating areas. The menu, while small, offers a good variety of the Italian food groups, and there is an extensive wine list. I wasn't... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant. The food was incredible. The pistachio salmon and ravioli were two of our favorite dishes we had in Italy. While the servers didn't speak much English, they were so friendly and seemed to fit the friendliness of the Italian restaurant owner stereotype. This restaurant had a great view when sitting outside. Also, try their Caprese... More

My friend and I happened upon the restaurant as we were walking down the main walk from the ferry to the town center. Just about 10 steps up from the main drag, it's almost a "hidden" gem. As you can tell from the photos, it's beautiful. Our lunch was excellent and the service exceptionally helpful. Our server's English was not... More

We went to mon amour after we couldn't get a table in another restaurant, but we didn't get disappointed. The prices are good, specially considered how portion usually are tiny in the area. We ate a pasta dish and a meat with Parmesan and we were both fully satisfied with the meals.

In our three days stay in Varenna this restaurant was our highlight. It is a bit hidden and does not offer a view at the lake - but the delicious food compensates this more than enough. It's one of the rare places where you get seafood. The portions will satisfy you. And the Tiramisu is just awesome. By the way:... More
