Should start by saying that it was a very busy Saturday night and we walked in to ask for a table. We were told to come back in 20 minutes which we did. After 1 hour of standing waiting in the doorway (helped by a complimentary glass of prosecco) we were seated. In that time many other groups arrived and... More

We were on a limited lunch time as we were on a coach trip. We had a short stay at Varese to get lunch and seeing as we'd run out of euros and the banks were closed for lunch break, we had to find somewhere that accepted credit cards. We stumbled on this great little placeand had a brilliant lunch.... More

Try the chateaubriand! Meat was perfectly cooked and the seasoning was delicious. Friendly staff. Would highly recommend for high quality authentic Italian dining in Varese.

Dined here with my sister & daughter 2 nights ago. All 3 meals were beautiful especially my beef fillet alvicolino which had, what I would say was, a light lemon & herb butter sauce on the beef, which was cooked beautifully rare (as requested) with a light charring on the outside. The side vegetables we ordered were also wonderful. The... More

Visited whilst visiting family. The food is of excellent quality and very reasonably priced. A prix fixe menu (rather unusual in Italy) is offered which made the meal very good value. The service was good and fairly quick with water and a glass of wine included in the menu (again, unusual). Throughly enjoyable! Will be returning next time we're passing... More

We loved this place and the charming people working in this restaurant. The service is fast, nice food, good formula with very sharp prices. The location is excellent in city center but on a nice and quiet square. Great terrace. My favourite place!

I decided to go there after having read the reviews on TA, and I got quite disappointed. The restaurant is quite nice and clean, the girls/waitress/owners were really kind, but I had my dinner on placemats and the glasses were put on the table by holding them from the goblet, so that I could see the fingerprints clearly on them....
