Extraordinary Pasta, Great Service

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.

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...

what a super evening. Busy, atmospheric and what a choice of excellent dishes. Wonderful home made pasta, smoked veal and filet steak with rich wine sauce. Desserts to die for! Wide range of wines from reasonable price to VERY expensive. Do book in advance and be sure to go!

We had dinner with friends at this beautiful place (make sure to reserve garden seating). Food is of high quality, specials of the house are superb! Not cheap (for Italian standards) but surely worth the visit! You will not be disappointed!

We ate here on our last night in Bardolino per the tripadvisor reviews and we were so glad we did! Nice atmosphere, beautiful garden and play area for the children, and seriously great food. Our waiter, Marco, was very attentive and gracious. Best meal in Bardolino to date!
