The interior decor is nothing special or inviting. Greeting was sincere and friendly. Had to wait 10 mins for our table but that was no problem. We had a table in front of bar and main door which was a bit chilly on a cold rainy nite. Bread was ordinary. A nice chef's taster was given in advance of a bresaola roll filled with a soft fresh cheese and delicious pesto. The food was good but not amazing. My pasta was very bland but my aubergine starter was delightful. We chose two red Wine by the glass both excellent and wine waiter was super helpful. Overall a fun adventure in an amazing town.

Really enjoyed our meal at Al Prato. Delicious pasta and accommodating staff. You need to book, but definitely worth a visit.

This is perhaps one of the best restaurants in Varenna. Al Prato is located away from the busy waterfront on a quiet small tree lined square. Of course they have attentive and excellent service.The food is a modern and light. A welcome break from tradition. We would definitely go back again, with friends or for a more intimate dinner. We rarely award 5 stars, but It's well-deserved.

Children are not welcome. Restaurant was barely half full, with no reserved signs on the tables, inside or out.

Yet, on arrival they were 'fully booked'. Two minutes after being denied a table a group of five arrived and after the waiter consulted with them, he pulled two tables together for them. Fortunately, there is a wonderful hotel and restaurant with a spectacular view just 20 steps away.
