Located on the main square, across from the church, this cafe, as the name suggests, in tiny. A small counter, a table with three chairs, and standing room for maybe a half dozen. In fair weather, there is a large covered patio out front, but for most of the time I was in Varenna, it was raining cats and dogs,... More

It's a bar where you can take a drink and a break outside while marching through Varenna. And with the drink you can help yourself to a finger-food buffet in the bar.

Great little coffee bar with a few outside tables overlooking the piazza. Owner serves up excellent espressos and cappucinos in record time.....great people watching as all the locals go here as well. Also a bar in the afternoon/evenings which was recommended by a few.

This was the only bar in Varenna that we could find that was showing the Rugby World Cup final on TV - we had checked in the morning with them that it would be on and was assured it would be on at 5pm. The bar is very small inside and not ideal for TV viewing so it was quite... More

Be sure to stop and visit this VERY local bar just under Casa Stacy! From morning coffee to afternoon prosecco & evening cocktails ... This place offers a local buzz with prime view of the piazza!

Few indie, relaxed waiter (and that's not the norm in Lake Como) took our order for coffees and soft drinks and then left us to our game of cards. Worth getting back off the main lake shore and exploring the little street and shove above.

Spent the evening with my family ( 6 of us ) watching the Champions League final. The Bar Staff were outstanding and help create a brilliant evening and although very busy were really under control and friendly. Also had a quick lunch there one day - super panini's. They will also do pizza/Panini to take away too. Nice view across... More
