Had dinner here last night. The food and service was great. The starter Cheese and Meat Plate could be an entire meal. Wonderful selection. A great way to celebrate our last night in Varenna.

Borgovino is in a pedestrian street running along the top of the town from the square. Service was friendly and professional and the chef discussed the food and wine selections with us. We enjoyed watching the passers-by in this quaint street. Well worth a visit....More

This is a nice cosy restaurant with about 6 tables inside and a couple outside. Not super high end or overly cheffy but nice flavours. On a rainy day this was a great spot. I can recommend the secret house pasta with pancetta and radicchio...More
