I've eaten in this restaurant over three years and have always come away satisfied. The room is simple, the food is not. A true Italian passion for food preparation is evident in every mouthful. I wouldn't sit outside as it's a very narrow street.

Our innkeeper was able to get us a reservation at this popular spot. The restaurant is quite small and we saw people without reservations being turned away. What a pretty setting. Exposed stone walls on one side of the restaurant, and a pretty, almost church-like vaulted ceiling. The tables are set with pretty linens and nice stemware. The atmosphere feels... More

We went on a date to this restaurant while staying in Varenna. It has such a charming atmosphere and the service was superb! We shared a four different courses and each of the four courses were high quality and tasted amazing! Not to mention that they were kind enough to separate each course on two different plates! We look forward... More

The service was prompt and very friendly. Our drinks arrived in a timely fashion and... More

This tiny restaurant offers well prepared fish from Lake Como. If you order the lake fish entree, be prepared for a feast of tasty fish.

We had read about the vista del Lagos but it was booked so we asked for a recommendation from the people at hotel Royal Victoria and they made a reservation here. It was awesome. The food was great, the ambience was rustic and just perfect. Very good choice I highly recommend.

This is a lovely little space, tucked away in one of Varenna's narrow alleys. Service was efficient and the food was delicious. My lake fish main was particularly wonderful - one of my stand out meals in Lake Como.

We received a recommendation to this restaurant by our hotel, Albergo Milano, and we agreed, it was superb. Quatro Pass, and the restaurant at the hotel, made for two of the best meals we had in Italy.

After several weeks of restaurant meals, I think this tops the list. Recommended by our hotel and we are sooooo glad we went. Pricey but worth it. Great classics and lots of seafood. Everything we had was excellent and the service was top notch. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
