Charming little restaurant

This restaurant was very close to our hotel and we had walked past it a few times and it appeared very popular so we booked a table. It was a very hot night but a large fan was provided for our comfort. We both had fillet steak with salad and a variety of vegetables washed down with a good... read more

After trying to get into a different restaurant, we were worried about eating here and falling victim to the usual "tourist trap" treatment as well as having concerns over service after reading the reviews. However, the service was actually pretty good. The waiters were friendly and helpful and the food itself was also very good. We had seabass tartar, followed... More

Cosy little Osteria apart from the crowds. But. .. Staff was very arrogant and unfriendly. Sorry, we didn't stay long enough to taste the food.

The old town of Sirmione has plenty of bars and restaurants most looking to grab the tourists who flock here. Al Torcol presents itself as a cut above but we found the food to be no better (perhaps not as good) as you can get down the road in Colombare and the wine waiter certainly did not appreciate selection of...

The food is simply not tasty. In addition, they charge you for "coperto" which means "pay extra 3€ per person....." I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

We ate here tonight with our three children 15,13 and 12 so not little but as previous people have said children are clearly not welcome. We were first told they were full with reservations but then the owner overruled and let us in, though I wish we hadn't bothered as the waiting lady that served us was so snooty it... More

Dinner with friends al Torcol was truly memorable. Great service, exquisite seafood and a great wine selection. Not to be missed.

Went for dinner based on TA reviews. It was really nice, very typical to what we have seen on our Garda tour. Quite typical italian food with good and friendly service in a garden setting.

The perfect way to spend an evening. We did not have a reservation, but we were welcomed and a space was found for us. We don't know a lot about wine but the waiter gave us some interesting information about the wine we had ordered without being prompted. The food came in good time and was very high quality. The...

This restaurant was recommended by friends who had been here last year and it was – at the time – the #1 restaurant in Sirmione. It definitely required a reservation. It was a little over one mile from the Hotel Belvedere and although it was rainy we decided to bike there. We had our bikes on the trip. This restaurant... More
