A saffran risotto with a game ragout was perfectly seasoned; equally delicious a warm winter salad... More

We had dinner here for the two evenings we stayed at the hotel. IT was excellent from beginning to end. If we go back to Lake Como, we are definitely reserving a table at LA Darsena for dinner! Highly recommended.

I really like La Darsena, the place is very charming, in summer you can eat on the terrace right by the Lake and it is super romantic. Italian cuisine a bit creative, fish is usually very fresh. Their menu changes every few months depending on the products of the season. The staff is very friendly. TOP!

Decor straight out of the 80s but the food is good, and the staff and owners are fantastic! The beef carpaccio was a stand out for me. Enjoy!

went there for my cousins birthday meal it was so good there are no words that can describe it. It's not a cheap place but you have to pay for quality and that's what it was. The taster dessert is a must. Nothing was a problem to any of the staff .

The horrible florescent lights and cheesy painted vines on the walls are hard to overlook when you are expecting a nice dining experience. There's out dated and there's just bad. Other reviewers seemed excited about the lakefront view, but after dark it really doesn't matter if you are outside since you can't see the view, other than the big advantage... More

Wide choice, attentive and knowledgeable but relaxed staff, and the best sirloin steak I have ever had the pleasure of. Fellow diners seemed suitably impressed too.
