A modern interpretation to traditional food. Absolutely perfect!

Sweet restaurant, and regardless its beautiful view, it's worth a visit! We ate there twice (lunch and dinner), and each course was delicious, the family who runs it is very kind and welcoming, and we really recommend this restaurant. Remember to make a reservation in advanced..

As I always do, I checked the most negative feedback before deciding to visit this restaurant (to be prepared to be disappointed!), but this place is great. The service was excellent (full bottle of chosen wine offered for same price as half, as half-bottle requested out of stock) and very friendly but unobtrusive and the food was just excellent. Beautifully... More

From you enter the restaurant until you leave you feel very well taken care of. Truly professional service! The menu is italian, some local items, enjoyable. We choose the darsena menu, great value for money and very tasty. The view is great, just by the seaside. The decor is somewhat seveties, but nevermind, the lakeview is more important, as is...

Friendly restaurant serving quite decent food with a view of Lake Como. They did a nice veal and tagatelli with lobster. Not too pricey considering the location. Worth a try.

Booked at last minute off at the start of the season, La Darsena was a lovely surprise. This family owned and staffed restaurant offer exceptional, friendly, and knowledgeable service. The kitchen is provides tasty Italian food, occasionally with a twist, from beautifully fresh ingredients. 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!
