We have stayed in Sirmione several times in the last few years and on every visit we look forward to relaxing over a slow lunch at this restaurant, usually we just choose simple salad and pizza but the quality, service and value are superb.

Recommended to eat here by some other Aussies and we loved it. Craving some hand made pasta and this restaurant did not disappoint in the food or wine department. The guys clearly live their food and wine explaining each course and recommending a wine that did not break the bank. The atmosphere was perfect, lighting, music, nothing to fault.

My husband (who has already written a review on 27 October) and I went to this restaurant a second time during a brief visit to Sirmione - something we almost never do. Richard has already written about our first meal. The second time was if anything even better, and we were greeted like old friends, treated to a free cheese... More

Thanks to TA we picked this place. Further back from the castle, so I asked 3 different shopkeepers for directions as I got closer. All said it was a good restaurant. They were right. For a busy touristy town, it is on a quiet side street. Enjoyed all of our food. Helpful staff with local beers, wines. Definitely would go.... More

We have just had dinner at al Torcol. Slightly uncertain because of recent negative reviews, but attracted by the menu. This is clearly a very popular little restaurant with a regular clientele. We were lucky to get the last unreserved table. The staff were all very friendly -- maybe some of your writers do not realise that in much of... More

Off the beaten path but worth the extra steps. Beautiful restaurant set into a hillside. Small with wine bottles surrounding the walls, exposed beams and stone walls. Live the atmosphere and ambience with blues playing thru dinner. The food was equal. Weren't that hungry so only managed one course each. I had duck with pancetta on a bed of spinach... More

We had a reservation, it's better to have one since is a small resto, it's really cute with wine bottle every where. the server was so good he recommended us the whole dinner and it was perfect. I really enjoy the cheese soufflé with porcini mushrooms. Dessert was great as well. We bought olive oil after trying them with dinner.

It's not typical for the restaurants in Sirmione and Italian touristic places in general, but it's a high cuisine restaurant. What I mean by high cuisine is the general approach to the cooking and quality of the food. Both are on the highest level. They offer very special meals and serve it with perfect local wines. The place is a... More
