“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

While we stayed at this hotel we ate breakfast and dinner here. It was delicious. Would thoroughly recommend it, especially if you are fortunate enough to get a table out on the balcony.

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Lovely views from the terrace over the lake. Exceptional food and wine with very good service. The décor was a little odd for my taste, but only added to the charm of being somewhere different on holiday.

“Very Good Food - Worth a Splurge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The restaurant offers a seasonal menu overlooking beautful Lago di Como. Service was swift and efficientt - but still afforded time to linger between courses.

We ordered from the Menu A La Carte - and again, since the menu changes seasonally, I won't go into details (but if you happen to be travelling while their Autumn 2012 menu is in play, I can safely say the Veal Cheek (w-Braised Vegetables, Polenta and Roasted Potatoes Pie) and as a dfessert, the Apple Sorbet w-Calvados are both delicious!

My only complaints: The lighting is horrible and there is no background music (at least not when we were there in October); A setting this romantic calls for dim lighting to complement the candles on the table and soft music playing in the background. Instead, the lights were kept on at full-power and every conversation could be heard - making the dinner about as romantic as dining in a cafeteria. This is a shame because La Darsena is lovely, and the food is wonderful.

“Lovely view of the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The restaurant is in a lovely setting directly overlooking the lake. The staff were very professionally and helpful and the food was wonderful. The service was good giving us plenty of time between courses which was very relaxing. The restaurant is decorated very nicely and not too cramped. I recommend this to everybody.
