This is a good restaurant with a nice view. Food is ok, service very nice. Food is somewhere between fine dining and local trattorias, which may be great for some people looking for a nice slightly more formal dinner, but might also be a problem if you want either more rustic or more fine dinish meals.

Anyway, great place for a white table cloth slightly formal romantic dinner if that's what you want.

If you looking for a restaraunt with a good view this would be it, but if you looking for a restaraunt with great view and delicious food? This restaraunt definitely NOT. This is our 4th trip to Italy, we didn't not have a bad meal, this was the most tasteless food we had in Italy and maybe in Europe. I had beef carpaccio, it was just dried meat with blueberries, my wife had shrimp carpaccio and it was tasteless. For main course I had file mignon with goose leaving liver, it had no taste and so chewing it took me few minutes to swallow, I didn't want to spit it out. My wife had bass and shrimp dish, left more then half of it, tasteless.

We had a wonderful dinner. Unfortunately it was pouring rain and forced us inside. We would have had a perfect sunset view if it was clear. A bit more elegant than other restaurants we dined in while in Varenna, but still reasonably priced. The food & wine were excellent!

If not staying at the Albergo Milano Hotel it can be tricky to find as it is up on the hillside so leave a little extra time if you are not familiar with the area.

This is the restaurant of the hotel Albergo Milano where we stayed. Breakfast was included B & B style very good. Had dinner two nights both excellent food and service. Not to be missed pasta with mushrooms and beef medallions. Soup, salads and grilled vegetables all great. Dining on terrace provides superb view of Lake Como.
