This place was selected by me for birthday dinner based on Tripadvisor rating and fully met our expectations.

The meal is dainty, wine list is complete and versatile, staff is excellent. Unfortunately we had no chance to have a table on balcony due to bad weather, but the view from there together with meal and service definitely worth the price for your dinner.

We had reservations here for our last night in Italy, and it was not a disappointment. The service is excellent. They give you a small taste of what the restaurant is about in the beginning. The food was very, very good. But it's high end, so the portions are small and it is expensive. But the view is pretty stunning. If you are in search of a classy or romantic meal in Varenna, this is the place.

In our brief 4 day stay in Bellagio and visits to the nearby towns, La Vista was by far the best restaurant. The location in Verenna, the wonderful view from its perch makes the eclectic and well prepared items on its menu even more sumptuous.

The meal there was great. The shrimp dish was unique and tasty. My wife loved the carpaccio and I literally had the best scallops of my life there. Also, the view was something I'll never forget. This was the perfect way to celebrate our honeymoon.

The terrace is very lovely and the view is definitely the best in Varenna. But don't go here for the food. I agree with the other commenter that said it was pretentious and overcomplicated. Even worse, the execution was just poor. We had an amuse bouche that was ice cold, congealed cheese fondue over lentils. An amuse is complementary, but they should have kept this one to themselves! Starters were ok (the beef carpaccio was good actually), but the pasta, while well cooked, was one dimensional. One of us ordered the seafood ravioli, which came out looking beautiful, but the prawn on top was unforgivably overcooked-- worse than a pencil eraser. And while the prawn had been slit down the back, it had not been deveined. At these prices, you shouldn't have errors like these. If you want to enjoy the view, it's still worth a visit, but if you're main priority is good food, I would definitely go elsewhere.
