Had a nice dinner at La Vista. While it wasn't our favorite meal on Lake Como, the view is the real show. Perfectly perched above the lake in Varenna. Book a later table in the front row for the killer sunset.

Family of 3 had dinner at Ristorante La Vista on 9th July 2018. The location is stunning, possibly the best anywhere in Varenna. The food however is simply not very good. Ham and melon: Low quality ham while the melon was far from ripe. Local...More

Located in the Albergo Milano hotel in Varenna. Fortunately, you do not have to be at the hotel in order to enjoy this restaurant. After doing much research, almost everyone has this restaurant # 1 and deservedly so. Unfortunately, we had thunderstorms right before dinner...More
