The evening started with one of the owners picking us up in a van from our hotel for a long evening enjoying course after course of delicious food. Definitely go fo the fixed price option. Plan for a meal that takes a few hours.

On our return to Varenna we made sure to visit Chef Moreno again for his classic Italian cooking lesson. Everyone in our Go Bucket List Travel Private Tour group had a fantastic time. Don’t miss it!

This is the best restaurant in Verenna and Perledo for quality, authenticity, value, service, and atmosphere. The food was exceptional in both flavour and execution. Chef Moreno and his wife Rosa are both perfect hosts. We also ok a cooking class here which was both...More
