The main restaurant of the Hotel, located at the Cardinal Building, where buffet breakfast is served.

It's refined, elegant and offers a magnificent view of the gardens; the lake and the large windows accentuate the impression of being immersed in the park.

It is open every day during the season. Breakfast is served from 7.00 am to 10.30 am while lunch is scheduled from 12.15 pm to 2.15 pm, dinner starts at 7.30 pm until 9.45 pm.

The splendid location of the private park and Lake Como would be enough to make the Veranda restaurant a unique place to taste the flavours of the Italian tradition.

If then these flavours are prepared with refinement and sophistication, and are based on the best raw materials from the sea, the lake and the land, then the experience at the Veranda truly becomes indispensable.

We remind you that it is possible to book at the Veranda even without being guests of the Hotel Villa d’Este.


After many experiences in Italy and abroad, in 2012 Michele Zambanini becomes executive chef of Villa d’Este. Here he coordinates a team of 40 chefs in the preparation of dishes that represent the best of Italian tradition. The remarkable wine list contains more than 500 selected labels.
