We went this summer to this restaurant during our holidays in Bardolino. There was a wine sommelier who knew a lot from it and helped us to make the right choice.

Even if you go as a couple, 6 friends or are invited to a120 person wedding, you can be sure you will find courtesy and excellent food. Always. The restaurant in it self is very nice, and the outer garden is so lovely. Every things is home made..the pasta, the cakes, the jams and some liquors.. You will never be... More

The restaurant is immediately giving you a warm and comfortable feeling. The interior design is made with a lot of love for detail and transporting a little bit over the top Italian flair. The outside seating area feels enchanting with all the lights and the placing of the tables gives everyone enough privacy to have a romantic dinner without overhearing... More

We visited on a Saturday night which was busy and the service was a little slow to start with, but the staff were very pleasant. The garden is nice but there was music and something going on either next door or at the far end of the garden. Add to that kids are welcome to run around to the play... More

Love the olive leaves in farmers fashion( a pasta!) and the peanut icecream. The food they serve is of great quality and served with passion. The staff is friendly and the wine is good!

This is easily my favorite restaurant at Lake Garda so far, and I have been to Garda many years. It is a little pricier compared to restaurants in the surrounding area, but not bad compared to DC prices and you get what you pay for. The restaurant has an amazing atmosphere. The garden is very well kept and is filled... More

What a wonderful evening we had at the restaurant on the final night of our holiday. The food was excellent, one of the best. The service was charming. You get what you pay for - it is not cheap but we did not grudge a penny. Thank you and we hope to be back one day.

This restaurant is one of the best restaurant I ever has visit. We dined here twice during our vacation - both time situated outside in the garden. The waiters are very friendly and polite and the food splendid and there's a lot of it.

Treated ourselves to a meal here on our last night in Bardolino, expecting great things from other reviews. Got off to a good start with some very good pasta after an awkwardly long sales pitch/ menu explanation from the waiter. Main course was a big disappointment though- at 40 Euros for two, the Beef in red wine failed to deliver.... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant for the third time and everything was great again. I funghi porcini, il prosciutto, le cotolette d'agnello, la tagliata, il vino, le milefoglie, il limoncello... Don't change anything! See you again...
