“Perfection”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

We stayed in Varenna for 3 nights at this wonderful hotel, and after dining the second evening at La Vista, we looked no further! Our next evening's dinner was as delicious, and as graciously served, as the prior evening's. The restauranteurs/innkeepers are pros and it shows in every detail.
Do not miss dining here.

“Sensational.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is without doubt the best restaurant on Lake Como.

Have visited three times in ten months. Every time it serves up wonderful food and an equally high level of service.

We always go for the four course menu which is the best 45euros that you will spend.

The staff are extremely attentive and provide a homely yet high calibre level of service. Beef fillet, caprese salad, chocolate fountain, all stand outs.

Won't find a better non Michelin restaurant in Europe.

“Best place to eat in Varenna!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had a week in Varenna and ate out every night. However, we encountered a lot of restaurants that were stocking frozen produce which was disappointing! La Vista on the other hand was outstanding! It's worth spending a little more to indulge is some excellent food! The rooftop dining experience is also magical with special views of Lake Como!

You won't be disappointed!

“Amazing views and food!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

After four days in Lake Como we finished with dinner at La Vista. It was everything we expected! I made a reservation well in advance and we had an amazing corner table on the view terrace. All the food was delicious - first time I actually ate some bread (still warm), amazing salad of shrimp and citrus, and my beef and potato gratin were scrumptious. I was also pleased to find a good selection of wines by the glass as it gave me the opportunity to pair with my dishes (prosecco, Orvieto white, Nebbiolo). Dessert capped things off nicely. Service was attentive and efficient. Pricey (about 130 euros), but worth it!

“Great food, even better atmosphere on Lake Como”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

We had three course meal on outside terrace. The view overlooking Lake Como was outstanding. The food was very good. Had Caprese Salad, cold tomato soup, scallops and lake perch followed by dessert and cheese. Nothing could have made evening more enjoyable. A bit pricey, but worth the cost,
