We came here to celebrate New Year's Eve. The atmosphere was very nice, elegant. Service impeccable, the staff is very kind and friendly. The food was good. A bit too expensive, but we would recommend it for a nice treat!!!

The restaurant is situated on the lake providing lovely views across... More

If you're looking for one of the best meals you'll ever have, eat here. Everything is homemade and perfectly cooked. I ate the best pasta that I've ever had in my life at La Darsena. If you are not staying in the area, this restaurant is worth a trip. Don't miss it.

What great find for lunch! This restaurant is on the lake foreshore with breath taking views. That would have been good enough but the food was spectacular! Sea bass and citrus sauce, perfectly cooked whilst my wife's risotto was delicious. Then the piece de resistance, the reconstructed tiramisu. No sure I will eat traditional tiramisu again. Soaking up the fantastic... More

A beautiful dinner - we opted for the set menu, every course and the wine was delightful. The waiting staff were very attentive as per the expectation for a restaurant of this type.

We stayed in the hotel, and once we tasted the food at their restaurant, we didn't want to eat anywhere else. The duck was particularly good, as was the porcini mushroom appetizer. Save some room for the desserts ! Especially Chestnut, chestnut, chestnut, which is heavenly, and the one with a marinated pear.

We came here and stayed during a visit to Lago di Como. I can't add more than the other reviews to this place but the rooms are spacious, well appointed and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. For a small hotel this is a true gem. You're only a few feet from the ferry... More
