È il secondo anno che veniamo in questo ristorante per festeggiare l’anniversario di matrimonio dei genitori del mio fidanzato. Come la volta scorsa, confermo di essermi trovata benissimo. La qualità del cibo è eccezionale e tutti i camerieri sono veramente squisiti. Menú studiato alla perfezione e mai banale. Non vedo l’ora di prenotare di nuovo!!! Grazie

On our honeymoon in Varenna we wanted a special night out and believed we could maybe find a restaurant on the hoof without booking! Wrong! Feeling a little disillusioned we happened upon La Vista and they kindly found us table just on the flanks of the patio but still with a lake view and plenty of ambience. THE BEST meal I have eaten in a long time. My main was steak and it was truly outstanding (and I eat a lot of steak) and yes another Tiramisu which was magical. A bottle of red shared with the perfect lady made it a truly special evening! The service was superb, the waiter was friendly and engaging. Will definitely return here when next in Varenna! I noticed a single poor review on here which seems to be completely at variance with all of the outstanding ones. I'm happy to add to the outstanding! Buon Apetito. G&V

Amazing dinner! We are major foodies so that means a lot. We chose two starters and two main dishes. Tartare, ravioli, filet, and duck. Eating with the stunning views of Lake Como was divine!

Location bellissima e staff professionale, oltre che estremamente cortese. Sia durante la fase di prenotazione, sia in quella di ristorazione. I piatti erano erano presentati in maniera ecccellente, e anche la qualità non era da meno. Veramente superlativo, così come lo era l'ambiente. Cenare su una terrazza con vista lago e luci soffuse, è a dir poco magico. Consiglio questo ristorante a chiunque visiti Varenna.
