Our hotel recommended this restaurant. It is in the centre of the old city. We had fish cooked in salt, one of the best dishes we ever had. The dessert was home made ice cream with fruit. The wine they recomended was also perfect. We liked it so much we asked to have the same meal at the same table... More

Liked everything from the food the ambience and the service not to mention the location. Not located in the heart of Sirmione but make the effort to find this place .

This was our last night in sirmione we booked the restaurant as not to be disappointed and we weren't. We arrived at 19:30 and Simon and his team couldn't have been nicer. I must say trust the staff on their recommendations on what's good as we did and it was amazing. Simon suggested what wines as well. My 4 year... More

This is a little gem in Sirmione's old city. Food is of very high quality, and they know their wines! We let the waiter choose the wines and, apart from him getting really enthusiastic, that was the best decision of the day! Pasta's were great, as was the meat. With the starters they served us 4 different kinds of flavored... More

This restaurant is located very nicely away from the main tourist path, and has cute, romantic terrace uphill. Menu is not huge and it is a bit pricy, but I believe these guys care and know what they are doing. Many interesting items on the menu, not the most common ones. My scallop&sage pasta was so good I wanted to... More

Apart from a downpour this was a beautiful place to eat. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection and our waiter was attentive and suggested an excellent wine. One man, I think might have been the owner, was quite agitated and abrupt and made us feel that it was inconvenient to serve us when it was raining on the terrace... More

This restaurant is among the more expensive that I tried in Italy in general but its also one of the best. The staff was friendly and knew much about the food they were serving. Much was also for the Garda area. Antipasti and a pasta for 2 for approximately 60 euro including 2 glas of wine. Not among the cheapest... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in. The staff were very friendly and obviously very passionate about food and wine. They seemed to have wine specialists, champagne specialists and food specialists who could advise us on any of their areas. The wine list was mostly local and the one we were recommended (one of the... More

Great dinner with friends. What else! The menu card is small but in return it covers a wide variety of dishes from, pasta, fish, meat and more. Service and location were great as well as the staff. They had great attitude 'despite the fact that we where tourists'. This restaurant deserves to be tried.

After an excellent meal this time last year, returned to Sirmione specifically to eat here again... only to be reminded that Trip Advisor is definitely NOT the place to get expert advice. Astonishing number of positive reviews simply proves that giving people the opportunity to express their views just lowers everything to the lowest common denominator. Apparently the chef hasn't...
