Been here 3 times and the food has been excellent each time. It has magnificent views, you have to book in advance to get an outside table on the terrace.

Wonderful food (both main and dessert), great wine, friendly and helpful service and great position. We couldn't fault this restaurant. Highly recommend this restaurant. Surprised it doesn't have a higher ranking on TripAdvisor.

A great restaurant to watch the sun go down with an apertivo, tasty food and reasonably priced food. Take your sunglasses and try to eat towards dusk as it cools down.

The view is incredible, the best in Varenna. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We made a reservation in advance and requested the outdoor seating. We had the best table in the front corner.

Yes, La Vista is about 10 minutes walk from the ferry. You will walk on the trail alongside the beach, and then up some stone stairs.

The Ferry dock is about half way between Villa Varenna and La Vista. We walked from Albergo Milano and La Vista to the Ferry Dock along the water comfortably in 10-15 minutes. So I'd guess about a 20 minute walk from Villa... More
