Perfect

Intimate osteria with great atmosphere. Attentive waiter, good English and small, but diverse menu of local specialities.Quality ingredients cooked to perfection without too much fuss, so that the flavours were fantastic.The beef carpaccio was a knock out and the zabaglione was to die for.

The far best of all restaurants in Sirmione. We found this restaurant by a "mistake". Supposed to go to another one but we found this and fell in love with it and the owner and all here. If we are coming back to Sirmione, we will definitely come back. We had tempura things for a starter with a white wine... More

After a failed attempt at ordering and eating food at another establishment in Sirmione (not to say anything bad about Bar Moderno) we paid our full tab for an uneaten meal at that other place and found Osteria al Torcol. Thank you to a chef who cares about what comes out of the kitchen and a server who cares about... More

Four of us enjoyed our best meal in Sirmione at this restaurant. Very knowledgable and friendly service from our young waiter, excellent wine information, and every dish a surprise and delight. As a result we relaxed and loved every moment. I've eaten a lot of restaurant meals in my life, and when I find a place that produces such good... More

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and our hotel's recommendation, and we were so glad we did. During our week in Sirminione, we visited Osteria al Torcol twice and were delighted both times. The service is impeccable -- the staff is very friendly but also professional and extremely knowledgable about wine. And the food is simply amazing!... More

Staff were welcoming and hospitable, nothing was too much trouble and the service was prompt and attentive. We loved the personal recommendations from the waiter for both the food and wine, which were both excellent, and the time taken by staff to ensure our dining experience was not a disappointment. We particularly enjoyed the ambience. In addition, the restaurant appeared... More

07 APR 15. This "Osteria" was recommended from our hotel, when we asked for a good Italian restaurant. The start was awful - after the waiter took the order and served us a glass wine and beer he left us about 15 minutes without drinks. After a strong notice from our side everything went swimmingly. The dishes were very tasty... More

If you are not an Italian a avoid this place. You'll be disrespected and provided with a rude service just because of it. Even if you are able to speak italian as we were. They just don't want foreigners. ...

We had the pleasure of eating a very well executed lunch during easter 2015. SSitting in the small garden and getting away from all the buzz was fantastic. The food was great and the knowlegde and service of the waiters really good. For sure the best meal I have had in Sirmione.. Buona Pasqua
