We had booked a garden table but because of thunderstorms we ended up sitting indoors. We loved the cosy interior and the food was definitely a notch above average. There is obviously some skill and invention in the kitchen. Even the bread with local olive oil an 3 different types of salt was great. The waiters were willing and knowledgeable.... More

Saw the recommendations, arrived as they were opening so booked a table for lunch. They asked if I had a table preference and I had. When we came back 2 hours later it was reserved, ready and waiting. Just off the tourist streets you do have to walk up a short hill with about 7 long steps. But it was... More

We were recommended to dine at this place by a German lady who runs a fashion shop in the town and seemed to know her cod from her codswallop. But alas, it was not to be. Everything about the place was average. Of the three of us who dined there, I was the luckiest, with an overpriced and strangely forgettable... More

We went to this place twice, the waiter made the night perfect! The aubergine paysenne was delicious and the spaghetti with scallops and lime was superb! Let the waiters recommend the wine, you won't be disappointed! Book ahead!

We spent four nights in Sirmione and started our first night at this restaurant which in a way was a pity, as it put the rest of them in the shadow of this experience. Worth mentioning as well is that we spent alot more on our meals in other places. Great authentic food, very personal, warm and humble service with... More

We ate here 2 times during a 7 night stay in Sirmione. The food was excellent but what impressed us most was the knowledge and passion of the staff in helping us choose, not just the food and wine but also the oil. Would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.

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
