We ate dinner at la Darsena out first night in Tremezzo. The restaurant was conveniently located to our hotel. We started out on the small terrace, but had to move inside due to a storm. The restaurant seemed to be understaffed. The food was just above average and they have a mediocre wine list. I would not go back because... More

La Darsena is ideally located on the shore of Lake Como. It offers tables (max. 4 pax) on the balcony and inside. Be aware that when sitting outside, not only other patrons may (will) smoke during your dinner, but also smokers from inside with use the outside area to have a fag. The food was good, but not anywhere close... More

We had dinner at La Darsena on Lake Como, Italy - a family run enterprise on the shores of Lake Como, in Tremezzo. The food was very good and the view of the lake was beautiful; there were tables outside on the balcony and the tables inside each had views of the lake. Most of the tables were booked in... More

Every dish at this restaurant was amazing. If I had to highlight one dish, though, it would be the beef carpaccio with truffles, which seemed to just melt on your tongue. The dish balanced the flavors of the beef, arugola, parmesan, olive oil and truffles perfectly. What seemed like a large portion in the beginning left you wanting more at... More

Although the service was perhaps too leisurely, our family enjoyed a 90th birthday dinner for our mother on the lake. The food was prepared and presented beautifully, with many tasty items. A special favorite was the deconstructed tiramisu dessert that was unique and delicious. Our table outside on the terrace was the perfect location to view the after-dinner fireworks, away... More

We have spent a lot of time on Lake Como and in Tremezzo but had not tried La Darsena until this week. We tried the 4 course dinner which is a tremendous amount of food but allowed us to taste their finest selections. Each course was exquisitely prepared and delicious. The presentation was excellent. Since the meal was a bit... More

Brilliant! Table on the balcony overlooking the lake! An onslaught of excellent food, from trout caught in lake como to homemade spaghetti for my vegetarian wife. The desserts were to die for. We still remark how we will never have a tiramisu as good anywhere else. Quality of food was superb with subtle flavours. Add to all this a bootle... More

Had a lovely meal here. Dinner was very busy so you need to book in advance. Staff were great with our kids (aged 12, 10 and 4). There was no kids menu but they were offered pasta or fish etc any way they wanted. Their meals came in a reasonable portion size and we were charged accordingly. The waiting staff... More

It's a short stroll through lovely Tremezzo and then one can relax at the outside tables overlooking the lake. The management and staff are very friendly and helpful. The menu is good and the wine list sufficient. Recommended.
