This place has fantastic wood fired pizzas! They also serve local dishes and are very reasonably priced. Highly recommend dining here if you’re staying in varallo.

I was introduced to this pizzeria by Italian local friends and ate here twice in the recent month. The place is cozy and is family run by the brother and sister. The first time we went was in the evening and we ordered pizzas - absolutely perfect! Today I got there alone for late lunch (14:20) and only the cold buffet table was available. Nice selection of different dishes - all was delicious. The sister chose me a glass of lovely red wine. The apple cake in sauce was divine. All for 11.50 including cappuccino.

We ate here on two evenings. Attentive service, sensible prices, nice food, attractive terrace. Probably the most popular place in town so, if you want to eat on the terrace, especially at weekends, then advance booking would be sensible. Balsamic vinegar alert! If you don't like it then say so as some dishes come pre-blathered.

Authentic home-made Pizza, friendly service, vegan chef, desserts prepared by the mother of the owner, balcony high over the gorge. Great location, extremely popular.

This place is always pretty busy, and they have a wide range of food to cover most tastes. Lots of pizza combinations, some pasta, local specialities.
I stayed in Varallo for about 3 weeks, and came here at least twice a week because it had a wide menu and was well priced. While I never had anything bad, there was never anything I ordered more than once.

Good location, especcially in the warmer months when you can sit on the balcony over the river.
