Hidden behind a large hedge (the route to the ferry - but very quiet) - this bar is a great place for a drink and a snack. The location is superb, and the service friendly and efficient.

We had a lunch here after walking the sentiero del viandante from bellano. Not so many places in town to go to ... we ended up here. The panini and flatbread were realy nice, they cut the meat ( prociuto) fresh. Indeed there are microwaved pasta's ! But it is clearly written in the menu, that the pasta comes prepacked and is being heated by microwave. We didn't go for the pasta . But stuck with the fresh panini. They were cheap and realy tasty ! It is also a nice place to sit, with lakeview ! We couldn't have wished more !

Beautiful location (you pass through the terrace dining area to board the ferry). The staff was incredibly friendly. The panini and bruschetta were wonderful, and the prices were very reasonable. Avoid the hot dishes, as they are microwaved prepared food...as the menu cautions in both Italian and English.
Watching the 'wind sports' from the weather protected terrace is great fun. Drinks are served with wonderful snacks.
We live just 1.7 miles away, but it's across the lake, so the drive is a little over an hour, but we'll be back. Hopefully many times.
Check the ferry schedule. It would be fun to arrive by ferry around 1020, explore Dervio on foot, and take the 1320 ferry away.

We had walked to Dervio and struggled to find anywhere to eat - this bar was next to the ferry stop so we decided on a late lunch. The pasta with a tomato sauce was poor - it had clearly been microwaved so the pasta itself was overcooked and the sauce tasted a bit strange. Service was efficient but unfriendly - like the staff wished they were anywhere else but at work. The panini looked good, as did the icecream desserts, so perhaps this bar is better for snacks. However, in a town with such limited choice they could really clean up if they improved standards a tad, especially with such a convenient location.
