Could not wait to go back

We ate here several times during our week stay as the menu choice, food and service were excellent. We booked a table as it did get busy. The smoked cheese ravioli with pistachio was wonderful.

After a week in Malcesine where pizzerias rule, my wife and I were close to being turned away for not having a reservation. However, the manager went the extra mile and squeezed us in. On the last night of our holiday we nearly missed this gem of a restaurant! The food was excellent and to a certain extent beat some... More

This family-run restaurant is in a good setting above a busy square in the town. The service is very good and the food is excellent. I had the seafood salad which was delicious and the homemade pasta was also very good. We did not book but were able to get a table, it is popular.

Nice atmosphere, central location and good service. Good choice on the menu and some unusual dishes (the polenta and gorgonzola starter was excellent!). Very popular so booking might be a good idea.

We visited this restaurant three times during our recent stay in the town and thoroughly enjoyed each occasion. We booked and were able to sit on the balcony overlooking the square below- a great setting. Really loved the salmon trout and entrecôte steaks. Mint mousse melted in the mouth. Service was sufficiently attentive, upbeat and efficient- even when the place... More

Excellent food in a family run restaurant. You will meet the owner, his wife and daughter(s), perhaps in the same evening. The Pulpo (Octopus) carpacio was a large serving. The salads were fresh and large as well. The pasta with mushrooms was excellent. Wine list was extensive. I would call ahead for reservations.

We had one of our best nights here. Everything tasted really good and still it wasn't too expensive. We will come back if we come to Lake Garda again!
