Beautiful atmosphere outside and a quaint place with only several tables. It appears to be family-owned and the sweet, older woman who took our order and served some of the food felt like a long-lost Italian grandmother. Service was excellent though quite slow. The tartare appetizers are delicious (the yellowtail one is better than the other). I have eaten several... More

We have visited this restaurant by accident on Valentine’s Day, looking for a place not very far from the Malpensa airport with good Italian food. Quite elegant (as we were traveling and wearing casual cloths, we felt a bit under-dressed), very good service. The food was excellent, however a bit expensive (EUR15-EUR18 for a pasta). If you want to experience... More

Very stylish and sophisticated venue, set in lovely surroundings Food and wine was superb and the service was attentive without being over bearing. An extensive menu but the owner was quite happy to provide a mixture of items for us to share while talking business. One of the most convivial (and delicious) meals I have ever eaten

A working dinner, on a hot summer day. The aperitif served outside, in the private garden is something not to be missed. Spaghetti all'astice (lobster) were good, but not outstanding. The dessert is proposed out of a chariot full of everything you can dream of.

I first went to this restaurant for my 18th birthday for a family dinner, and I have to say that in the area of Varese this is my favorite restaurant in the Varese area. The food that you will eat here is sophisticated and you will not easily find it anywhere else. You are always welcomed with a glass of... More

A sophisticated restaurant, very enjoyable, intimate rooms, and a lovely reception area, and a nice touch to be welcomed with some nibbles and a glass of prosecco. When I think of a quintessential "nice" place to dine, to go for a romantic meal, to take someone you wish to impress, this has it all in spades. The menu is sophisticated,... More

Enjoyed a lovely business lunch with fresh truffles on a lovely steak tartare starter and just perfect risotto. Beware the dessert trolley - you will find it very hard to resist. Very good wine list. Would love to visit in Spring/summer as the garden looked amazing.

The restaurant can boast of the ideal setting, the perfect atmosphere and the fabulous service. The owner gives a warm and homely welcome, which is absolutely unique. However, the food was slightly disappointing. Some of the dishes appeared to be experimental, like shrimps in tempura, and the result was not exactly brilliant. I am sure the chef would have had...

Lovely setting in an old Villa. Love the glass of prosecco and appetisers offered as you arrive. Beautiful pastas and the pheasant game pie was delicious. Main courses were then too heavy for us. They looked after our 5 yo daughter beautifully as well and she also had a lovely experience. I love the fact the female owner and her... More

Lovely setting and very nice decor sets you up for a very nice meal. The customer service was very good and very attentive. The only downside was that the food was nice, but not exceptional! And if you then talk about value, I felt that it wasn't really value for money! It's a pity as many of the other reviews... More
