Booked a table for our friends birthday. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside as it's next to the main lake side road and the exterior looks a bit run down but don't be put off as you don't hear any road noise from either inside or the veranda (there is another balcony area next to the small car park but that's mainly for casual drinks). The veranda overlooking the lake is a really nice setting and staff are helpful, attentive but slightly chaotic which was probably due to our poor command of Italian! When we arrived most of the tables outside were taken but customers started moving inside as a storm appeared over the Campo dei Fiori mountain - we stayed out until almost the last moment as there was a nice cooling breeze and it's such a great vista. This is mainly a fish restaurant and so between us we had a selection from the menu - my sea bass was cooked to perfection although there were bones so you need to be careful - it came with fried potatoes and also ordered a nicely prepared side salad which was more than ample for two. Our friends were disappointed with their choice of Chianti Classico but happy with the house red! - so guess it's down to personal taste.

We are staying in Nebbiuno and wanted somewhere special to go out for a meal. This restaurant came up on trip advisor with great reviews. We were not disappointed! We received a warm welcome and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had octopus gallega to share and then I had black tagliatelle with sea food and he had sea bass. Both were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The chocolate cake with gelato and pistachio moose were also scrumptious and the meal was nicely accompanied by a bottle of prosecco. Unfortunately it was raining so we ate inside but it was a lovely space and we were still able to enjoy views of the lake from the window. Highly recommended, thank you to all at Ristorante Bella Vista for a special evening!

Our host at the b&b recommended this place as non touristy, and we weren't disappointed. Fabulous seafood and lake fish, expertly cooked. Extensive wine list which was really good value, and a wonderful staff.

This restaurant is just on the side of the road but its terrace over the lake is really relaxing and romantic. You can't hear the cars. In addition the food is very good.

Everything is based with fish, either from the lake or the sea. The prices are medium and acceptable for the view you have over the lake maggiorie. I will come back here next time in the region!

Loved the view, seated directly above Lago Maggiore. Went to the restaurant 4 days in a row. Food and wines were delicious and very affordable. Especially loved the homemade black fish ravioli
