We decided to make a quick day trip over to the pretty town of Varrenna-just a quick 15 min ferry ride from Bellagio. It was a hot day so we were looking for a place with a bit of air circulation and this spot fit...More

The view on the lake from the terrace of this bar is stunning. The food is quite okay, nothing too special. The prices are very reasonable though.
