Food was good but service was very so so. Italians received much better and more prompt service. Had to ask for bread dipping plate. Italians received complimentary aperitif while tourists got none. Not worth the time or money even though it is rated very highly

On our first night in Sermione we walked from our hotel to Osteria al Torcoi and had a fantastic dinner served by friendly and helpful staff. All the food was tasty and freshly prepared. My husband ordered the mixed fish dish consisting of 4 different fish served with 5 different seasonings all described perfectly by the waiter. He said it... More

The smells from the kitchen were great and every time a dish past our table our tastebuds gor excited. Friendy staff, they peak good English, good wine knowledge. Just a great... More

Something has fundamentally changed with the attitude of the staff since we last visited this restaurant last year. We booked a table outside (not in the garden) the previous day in order to guarantee the ambience that we experienced on the previous visit last year. When booking we asked for a table at 7pm but we were told that even... More

The perfect dinner on our first night in Sirmione. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and though we did not have a reservation (Tuesday night), we were able to get a table for two on the picturesque and relaxed patio. The waiters were all attentive and helpful, recommending glasses of wine to pair with our meal, each glass better... More

After reading some of the negative comments about this restaurant, I admit to a certain amount of trepidation in going to al Torcol, but after a recommendation from some friends who'd been there the previous night, we decided to give it a go. And we're so glad that we did. We made a reservation for the evening and were given... More

A went to this cosy place in February this year, where the medieval town of Sirmione is much quiter and genuine than during the peak season. With very attentive staff serving great food in a lovely atmosphere, I may wholeheartedly recommend this hidden Champion!

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

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 bottle... More
