Very good experience in this small restaurant in Sirmione: excellent food, nice wine, very good service with perfect suggestions about food and wines and good talks with the owner. Better to book cause they have just 10 tables inside and few others outside. Cost was more than reasonable for the quality of what we had

Delicious seafood and meat dishes combined with an extensive wine list with reasonable prices. Great service in the cute garden.

We are not as entusiastic about this restaurant, as it was more expensive than Maria Calis next door, but not really better. It was very good, but not excellent as we expected. We sat in the large garden accross the street from the main building and terrace, and it is was quite nice and quiet. It is just that we... More

Our favourite in Sirmione. It is refreshing to find a waiter in a holiday destination like this to be passionate about the food and the wine that the restaurant is serving. The waiter appeared to be attentive to every table and suggested the better wine or olive oil to accompany the food. He had an understanding of the ingredients and... More

The restaurant is excellent. They explain you exactly where the food come from- from which city / farm. The wine was very good. The dishes were excellent: We had plate of cheese and ham for a starter with great bread selection and olive oil and three types of salt! For main dish we had two pasta types, pork and beef... More

My first and last in this restaurant. We ordered one pasta dish and one stake. The stake was red although we asked for medium cook. The pasta was almost exactly as it was taken from the box, uncooked at all. When we asked the waiter to handle it, he was rude and very unpleased. We paid and left the place.

Usually, wherever we stay we try out several restaurants and go back to the one we liked best on our last night. However this routine nearly backfired this year when we returned to the Osteria to find it fully booked (it was Frid. night). But when our host/waiter from our first night sensed our disappointment he somehow managed to find... More

The pasta dishes at Osteria al Torcol are fantastic quality. Having visited there twice before we were pleased to see that the menu choices were changed this year and that the quality levels were as good as ever. My pasta with Italian sausage was superb and their version of tiramisu, made with strawberries, was a great way to finish a... More

A fabulous restaurant that makes everything from scratch and have staff that are knowledgable about their menu and wine list. Expect to pay around €30 per head excluding wine for 3 courses but it's worth it in my opinion. I wish every restaurant in Sirmonie adhered to this philosophy on Italian cuisine.

Lunched here on the outside terrace on a day trip to Sirmione. The home made pasta was truly exceptional - I chose "con sarde" and my wife chose the scallops option. Both were memorable. The recommended Lugana wine was delicious also. This place deserves its high rating
