A review in English for the tourists from all over the World. The place is beautiful and cozy: a renovated historical butcher shop. The owners are kind and professional.

We (my wife, brother and myself) came upon this restaurant by chance when looking for a place to eat and invited to eat by the very persuasive gentleman who saw us viewing the menu. We sat outside on the street which had a bit of an incline. The food was very good, our waiter very helpful and friendly especially regarding... More

This restaurant is hidden away but it is a gem of a place!! The food is beautiful and the service is first class! I would recommend the tira misu, best dessert I ever had. We went there twice on our stay.

We came across this delightful small restaurant quite by accident as it is away from the more touristy areas of the town. Great food, good range of drinks, reasonable prices and good service. Really what more could you want. Seek it out when you are in Desenzano. You won't be disappointed.

Wine list is good, I have tried local beer, which was very good. My girlfriend liked a strong Wine from Verona (don't remember the name). According to her it's a must try.

We came across this restaurant by chance and enjoyed an excellent meal in a very relaxed atmosphere where the ingredients are the king. Everything every element of the meal was exceptional and the service was friendly, embracing and informative. When I return to the are, I will most definitely return to this restaurant.

Seeking a traditional and unique restaurant experience we stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant hidden down a side street. The welcome was extremely friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. There was an element of humour in the presentation of the menu (bound in old cardboard box ends) .The cold meat and cheeses platter was a delicious... More
