Staff were warm and attentive. If we had discovered this restaurant earlier, we would have returned for another meal. Would recommend this restaurant for a special dinner and an opportunity to enjoy an evening lake view.

Our four-course dinner at Ristorante La Vista was the best meal of our recent five week European holiday, and the highlight of our three nights in Lake Como (we stayed in Bellagio). We made a booking four weeks in advance, after reading great reviews on TripAdvisor, at which time we requested a table closest to the lake. Upon arrival, we... More

Freindly an personal service. Exelent and high quality meal based on local products. The front terrasse offers a spectacular view of lake Como. Don't go to Varenna without trying the La Vista!

We had the tasting menu and it was exquisite. The best meal we had on our trip to Italy. We had a table at the edge of the terrace which enhanced our overall impression. Really romantic atmosphere, extremely pleasant staff offering great service and the food was great.

The view is amazing but so necessary in October. It was quite chilly and windy perched on their balcony with a rain shower brewing. Inside tables were not made available until the rain began. The food was only fair. Lamb shank was dry and cold but we were outside. Service was excellent. Pricey for what we had

A restaurant that trades on its views. Sitting on a beautiful but too crowded terrace, I found the food average. At the end of the meal we requested cheese and were brought an average selection. Inside the restaurant I later saw ( by the toilets) a trolley with the most delicious looking cheeses that we had not been offered. Staff... More

My wife and I had a wonderful evening at La Vista during our recent stay in Varenna. We dined on the terrace and it is a spectacular setting. The food and service were terrific. We would recommend dining at La Vista if you travel to Varenna.

We made a reservation a week in advance, and were lucky to get the best table on the patio, front and center. Amazing view across the lake and boat activity to view at the dock under the patio. We were both happy with our meals, and the service was attentive and friendly. My tip is to try the gorgonzola ice... More

I would not like to be a restauranteur in Varenna. Even for a tourist it can be a challenge! So many excellent places to choose from, so few mealtimes! We were walking through the top streets of Varenna in quest of another place we had heard about, when we the view ( La Vista) lured us in to Ristorante La... More
