Greeted by the maitre d' at the door and shown to our table with a perfect view of the sun setting over Lake Como. The service was excellent attentive but unobtrusive; the food, perfect too. A must visit when in Como.

The restaurant is beautiful, with a wonderful view of the lake. We opted for the set menu, and the staff accommodated my pescatarian diet by switching the meat dish for a fish main. The food was delicious, rich, beautiful. This was the best meal I had in italy, or anywhere, in a long time!

Gorgeous setting, the food is good, and the service was good too. Real tablecloths on tables, nice atmosphere. It's very easy to get to if you arrive by boat - just a short walk down the street.

One of the main strenghts of this place is surely the lovely view on the lake; if you're lucky enough to reserve a table on the balcony you might enjoy a finest and romantic dinner straight upon the water. :)

Just ask anybody in town where they love to eat, and without a doubt, "Darsena" will be at the top of their list. The restaurant sits right on Lake Como and the views are magnificent. But the food is even more magnificent, especially the buckwheat pasta. Homemade and to die for! Food is not expensive and quality is superb. The... More

With a large dinning room and a balcony over the lake, this is the best located restaurant in Tremezzina. The place looks a bit posh but not to formal. Comfortable a with fantastic views this is the place to eat. The menu has plenty of good choices and everything we tried over two nights was very well made and presented.... More

The restaurant is blessed with uninterrupted tranquil view of Lake Como and the seating capitalises on this, where diners can blissfully gaze out and enjoy the divine food! The food was magnificent, with an excellent attention to detail. Having eaten many aubergine stacks, this was the first with beautifully crispy skin. The risotto was cooked perfectly and I just wish... More

We visited here for lunch after reading the stellar reviews. The food we sampled was excellent but the service left much to be desired. We were given a table inside despite our reservation for an outdoor table on the terrace. We were ultimately given a table inside but the staff seemed annoyed despite the fact that the place was not... More

Dear Madame, we thank you for your visit and we are sorry to read that the service was terrible and you did not had a table on the terrace but let me explain better: i don't know how you can define terrible service when you just eat a simple and quick pasta dishes in 40min, i think you were just...

The romantic terrace creates the perfect atmosphere for one unforgetteble evening.
