Alle Darsene is a charming, mostly outdoor restaurant in Bellagio. It is about a 15-20 minute walk, or a 10 minute taxi ride from the city center. It is a welcome escape from the tight streets and crowds of people. We were greeted with a beautiful outdoor table and a glass of the Alle Darsene prosecco. There are options for both a tasting menu and an a la carte option. The beef tartare was absolutely delicious, as was the ravioli first course. We were very pleased with the service and the food. The comfortable atmosphere and delicious food makes this restaurant a must!

I saw a picture of George and Amal Clooney going to dinner at this restaurant just before we were leaving on our trip to Lake Como. I honestly thought if they are going there than it has to be good ha ha! And (of course)I also checked the Trip Advisor reviews and Darsene is rated very highly!

We are staying down the lake at the Villa d'Este in Cernobbio and we had a boat and driver hired for the day. He took us right to dockside at the restaurant for lunch.

Our lunch was wonderful! I really wanted to start with a salad although there was not one on the menu. The waiter said of course they would be happy to make a mixed salad for us. It was absolutely delicious. We followed with tagliatelle with black truffles (as it is black truffle season right now), and also the portobello ravioli. For dessert we had the tiramisu ..but the big winner was the panne cotta with orange and zabione! Also service here is excellent.

It was a full house at lunch mid week so make sure to make a reservation.

I am smiling writing this review remembering the time spent at Alle Darsene di Loppia.

We visited this restaurant twice during our 8 night stay in Bellagio and to be honest we would have dined here every day if we could. We had lunch on the first visit and dinner on our last night.

We have dined in a number of 1 to 3 star Michelin restaurants across the globe and and this is one of my favourites. The staff make for a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience and are a big attribute to this restaurant. The sommelier made some wonderful choices when matching with each of our courses and over the 2 visits I don't think we had 2 glasses the same.

The food was fantastic and extremely good value compared to a number of the restaurants in central Bellagio.

If you are visiting for lunch I would recommend walking through the gardens overlooking the lake, it makes for a beautiful start/end to the meal.

Thank you to the Alle Darsene di Loppia team, you really made for a wonderful dining experience in Bellagio. See you next time :)

While I would not call the service "flawless" I would say they do try to provide excellent food with excellent service. Food was presented in quick and professional attitude. The food was very good. Veal was maybe a touch underdone in the midfield of a spiral. The after dinner coffee took too long to get but other than that, excellent. The great attitude of the servers and hostess made up for anything off. Highly recommend.

Impeccable service and delicious food. Unpretentious but knowledgeable front of house, wait staff and sommelier. Food was amazing - beautifully presented local produce with great flavour - spaghetti with parmegianno and white truffle was to die for! Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
