Terrible service, waitress (or whatever she was) very rude to do the service, did not give us time enough to choose and lied saying that the kitchen would close in five minutes while many other customers came long after us for dinner. I do not recommend. If you want pictures of the view from there, just enter the parking lot... More

Food is very particular, a good mix of traditional local food and modern ideas. The location is great, right in the center of Brunate. The environment is nice, fine, and with an amazing view. Prices are fair. The personnel was very kind, especially a young girl which was super lovely with us. They even have a small parking. What else... More

Actually, we came upstairs by funicular in hope to see the panorama of the town and lake, but there is no view platform on top. Attracted by the sign "Bella Vista" we dropped in to have prosecco at sunset. The waiter was rather uncivil. He ignored the request to find a table on the terrace and it took him about... More

I'm sorry if the waiter was uncivil, but it seems very strange. Also because seems strange everything you wrote. You don't write the truth: - Our pictures of inside or outside can prove that you are not honest about the panorama. - Our Prosecco of Valdobbiadene Andreola dirupo it cost by the glass 4.50€. So 2 glasses is 9€ not... More

At first when we arrived we didn't expect that it would be so good but the food was amazing and I had 2 portions there was so much flavor. I totally recommend it and I recommend the tagliatelle.

We took the funicular up to Brunate and chose here to sit outside and enjoy the views with a cappuccino each. The views really were very good but there wasn't a lot of atmosphere here and the staff were a little nonchalant. Umbrellas available on some tables. They have some indoor seating too and I can imagine it might be... More

I'm sorry if you don't find atmosphere in the Bellavista Boutique Hotel and Restaurant. We think that the Liberty style of 1890 with all the original furniture, silverware, flowers, plants, panorama etc could have it.... About waiter thanks for your indication, i will try to understand what happened. Thanks Renato More

Biggest plus is the nicely decorated restaurant with the beautiful views outside. Food was good enough but portions small. Service attentive and friendly. Quite a lot of wines available by the glass at affordable prices. All in all it was a good experience, largely supported by the beautiful scenery though.

fortunately I trust in us more than you trust in us, and there are a lot of faithful Guests that trust in us more than you do.. so we will surely improve day after day and year after year because we put some trust in all we do, and we accept all the review, good and bad, so thank you... More

Oké, great view over the lake, but nothing more!!! Even a child with the age of five can make their dishes! Prices are ridiculously high, not even worth the price of a menu at mc donalds!!! If you want to eat in Brunate, you better look somewhere else!!!
