This restaurant is among the more expensive that I tried in Italy in general but its also one of the best. The staff was friendly and knew much about the food they were serving. Much was also for the Garda area. Antipasti and a pasta for 2 for approximately 60 euro including 2 glas of wine. Not among the cheapest... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in. The staff were very friendly and obviously very passionate about food and wine. They seemed to have wine specialists, champagne specialists and food specialists who could advise us on any of their areas. The wine list was mostly local and the one we were recommended (one of the... More

Great dinner with friends. What else! The menu card is small but in return it covers a wide variety of dishes from, pasta, fish, meat and more. Service and location were great as well as the staff. They had great attitude 'despite the fact that we where tourists'. This restaurant deserves to be tried.

After an excellent meal this time last year, returned to Sirmione specifically to eat here again... only to be reminded that Trip Advisor is definitely NOT the place to get expert advice. Astonishing number of positive reviews simply proves that giving people the opportunity to express their views just lowers everything to the lowest common denominator. Apparently the chef hasn't...

Top quality food, highly knowledge staff - ask for their drink recommendations and current specials. Nice atmosphere with some pretty good music. Finish up with their homemade tangerine liquor. Roughly €50 per head for two courses with wine.

Our waiter was passionately interested in their food & wine, and all the staff were very friendly & helpful. Excellent food (great pastas & loved the John Dory special) &... More

Sirmione is a resort and it's many restaurants are inevitably filled with tourists. In contrast, Torcol is full of locals. On the night we went, their charming terrace was full and we were he only foreigners on it - it isn't hard to understand why. The dishes all had a twist (prawn tagliolini with pistachios) but were cooked carefully (prawns... More

We ate dinner here twice during 5 day stay in Sirmione. Food The menu is very interesting and the chef uses the very best and freshest produce including the fresh herbs growing in tubs by the terrace. Be adventurous and try something you've not had before. When I asked the waiter about a dish of local lake fish he replied... More
