We both had the tagliatelle and loved it. Service was efficient and although on the pricier side, it was worth it.

For outstanding food, an exquisite view and fantastic service, we highly recommend this restaurant. We enjoyed dinner for six sitting outside on the water as the sun was setting behind the mountains. The menu is small, so we literally ordered EVERYTHING on it and shared it among the six of us. Our favorite items were the fish mousse, cocoa pasta with Gorgonzola cheese sauce and the rabbit. And the icing on the cake was, our server Julia, who was absolutely precious and highly knowledgeable about the food, the wine and the region. She has a bubbly, warm personality and spent a lot of time with us. When we walked by the restaurant the next night, she ran up to my husband and hugged him, hugged me and chatted with us for a while as it was out last night in Varenna. Our entire family loved her and had an overall fabulous experience at Vecchia Varenna!

We have eaten quite good. Fantastic view but hot.
Walters very kind and smiley.
Owner histeric and unkind; take care.

After heavily harassed with his stupid requests throughout lunch, having bothered my innocent and polite waitress with vulgar proposals in a shameless way despite the age difference, and finally concluding the dinner with nasty words I liked rather forget...the only thing that was missing is write a review truly worthy of an "ignorant"!!!

Best Regards

Highly recommend this restaurant for a beautiful view, relaxing atmosphere and good food. I had lunch on a sunny, hot day and I was seated on the terrace. I would recommend to order the fish, which was excellent.
