My party and I were recommended to eat at this place not only for the food but for the incredible sunset views... both were spot on. First the view, it was incredible. The sun hits the mountains perfectly causing a clash of color that spans across the beautiful Lake Como. There is nothing better than enjoying a delectable meal with... More

Beautiful location with a fantastic view over the lake. Very good service. Well presented and tasty food. Quality food but not generous quantity. Most expensive meal we have ever had.

We booked three months in advance requesting a railing side table on the terrace and got it. It was absolutely spectacular. The service was outstanding food was very good to excellent. We each had four courses for 48 euro. They were all good. The highlights were the shrimp carpaccio with orange and fennel and the suckling pig ribs with apple... More

...worth the price of admission! We were staying the night at the associated hotel and had booked a reservation at the same time (advisable since it fills fast). You have a choice of either a la carte or doing a 3 or 4 item prix fixe tasting choosing from the full menu which varies nightly. Fresh local dishes centering around... More

We had a lovely dinner at Ristorante La Vista. It was touch and go for awhile, as our 15 year old was moody and is on a mission for vegetarian food at the moment. So we booked and then cancelled, but then could go, and were lucky enough to get in. The staff were so helpful and obliging, the food... More

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
