The restaurant was very nice, but maybe a little pricey for the service and food. The service was a little slow, but I admit I can be an impatient American at times. The view was spectacular.

I would return to Como to eat at La Darsena. Absolutely beautiful views and dining experience. The family that owns this hotel/restaurant is charming, hard-working and wants its diners to be happy. The food is creative and delicious. Ate here two nights in a row and would eat here every night if I lived in the neighborhood!

We had a very enjoyable meal here. There is an extensive menu both for food and wine. Our table was on the outside terrace with fantastic views across the lake towards Bellagio.

Heading says it all! The staff was friendly and most helpful. Italian/oriental kebabs to start followed by delicious pasta. Would definitely recommend and we will return!

The four of us were seated on the terrace with a nice view of the lake. The restaurant itself is very nice indoor also with excellent views, however, the outside facilities so, so. The food was overall very good but service very slow, even when you are prepared to relax and enjoy.

The concierge at the Grand Hotel recommended La Darsena. Wow, the food was amazing! We enjoyed it so much, we went again the next night. The risotto with ribiola cheese was outstanding! I had it both nights. Service is excellent. The owner and his son were very nice. We stayed for two hours but it felt like 30 minutes. Very... More

Ideal atmosphere to spend pleasant moments, tasting the true local kitchen rivisited with a little bit of fantasy and with dishes carachterized by local and season products.
The pleasant restaurant's room, fully air-conditioned, offers immense windows with a unique view on the colorful cape of Bellagio and on the Grigne.
The romantic terrace creates the perfect atmosphere for one unforgetteble evening.
