We ate here after just missing a ferry. The menu isn’t as extensive as you might find elsewhere, but we ordered a range of dishes from across the menu and all were superb, especially the sciatt (local speciality) and the tagliata (very tender!).

I don’t have a sweet tooth, but I’m a sucker for homemade desserts. We tried the cake, strudel and semifreddo, all of which were faultless.

Our plates were scraped clean after every course!

My husband and I had high hopes for this resturant based on the reviews but were pretty dissapointed. Both of us ordered fish dishes which were very small for second courses and lacked flavour. Everyone seems to rave about the pasta so perhaps we just ordered badly. The service was very friendly.

The Ristorante La Darsena impressed us so much with the friendly service and the very fine food that we ate there twice during our short stay in Bellano. We liked the modern furnishings and we also found the prices surprisingly reasonable for such good food. Compliment!

We had dinner here on our penultimate night in Bellano. It’s a popular restaurant with an open kitchen, friendly multilingual staff and they delivered some of the best food of our time in Italy. A must if in Bellano.

We ate here on our first full day in Italy. It was 6 pm, we were tired and hungry and beginning to realize that most restaurants in Italy don't open for dinner until 7 or 7:30.

We had given up trying to find an open restaurant and were walking back to our hotel when we saw this rather unassuming (at least from the outside) restaurant with a sign that said open at 6:30. We waited outside for about 10 minutes, when exactly at 6:30, the chef arrives on his motorcycle, walks into the restaurant, and we're let in.
Great, we thought, we'll have to wait while he preps all his foods for the dinner service.

Not so, he was very quick and the food was fantastic. Lots of dishes typical of the region, including the very strange-looking but quite tasty Sciatt Valtellinesi (cheese-filled buckwheat fritters) and various dishes using the local fish.

And his desserts! Absolutely delicious and artistically presented. The waitress/manager was extremely friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this restaurant when you're in Bellano.
