How 2 – spend a weekend around Varese, Italy

On a recent weekend excursion to Gavirate. I had some very good food. 
Simple local and comforting – Here follows some impressions from 2 days in Northern Italy


The Princess, was flying to Greece via Milano and I joined on the first leg to meet our good friends and see how life is lived in this industrial region of Italy.

Here are some impressions from 3 different good meals:

1.st stop Pizzeria Daniele: Fried Pizza bread with Balsamico

Day 2: Having a beer watching local Glider club being active
The beer – Angelo Poretti – 3 Wolves?

Ristorante Vecchio Ottocento: My Friend having Burrata

Ristorante Vecchio Ottocento:And I the special Pizza Leo

It is felt in the region that we are close to the mountains, a good joy of food – generous portions, Meat and cheeses. The food is affordable, unfuzzy but made with lots of love.

Pizzeria Daniele and Pizze of Veccio Ottocento are strong recommendations.

Lessons Learned
  • Pizza’s atVecchio Ottocento is by the 2013 competion winner of Parma World Pizza Championship
  • Dinner for 4 @ Pizzeria Daniele including 2 bottles of wine, coffee and more 113€ – that’s value.
  • Bresaola can be magnificent, and I will stop buying it pre-packaged
  • Life is good…
