We had just came down from the Funicular and wanted lunch. We passed a few restaurants whose servers were over the top with trying to entice us in.

After extraordinary dining experiences at La Buchetta in Florence, The Imbarcadero in Como, and Cavallino Valde in Varenna, our luck ran out at La Darsena. We were filled with anticipation as we put on our best clothes for a good-bye dinner. The three families were seperating after 10 days of traveling through beautiful Italy. La Darsena overlooks Lake Como and... More

Before leaving for our holiday at Lake Como, we tried to book a balcony table for a saturday night @ 19:30 and were politely informed by email that a table inside or on the terrace were available at this time but might need to wait until 21:30 for the balcony. We visited the restaurant the day before just to confirm... More

Having asked at the local tourist office in Menaggio as a well a number of local people where we should dine, we came to the conclusion that we (four friends) should go to La Darsena. And we were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is quietly elegant and the tables placed sufficiently apart to afford everyone enough privacy. The menu gives... More

We went here on our last night on Lake Como and it was a lovely ending to our stay. The food is excellent and reasonably priced for the standard of restaurant. It has a great view over the lake. Definitely one of the best meals we've had in Italy!

We were in Tremezzo for a week but only discovered La darsena half way through. We ate there twice. They have a fantastic menu but we stuck to their tasting menu which is great value at about €40. The staff are very professional and they were very helpful recommending excellent wine to go with the meal. The setting is beautiful,... More
