Tucked away in the narrow back streets of Limone, this restaurant was a highlight of our holiday. Dishes were explained with enthusiasm...we all changed our minds from our original choices & were delighted with our food. My husband had an unusual starter- the cheese board with a selection of marmalades (absolutely delicious) & the rest of us had a mountain... More

Had a lovely starter (that I would not normally have picked) based on a recommendation of cheese in filo pastry... More

Tucked away in a cobblestone back street of the beachfront is this fantastic place that probably can seat no more than 30 at a time. We were served by the owner and enjoyed the simple an d most complex of all our plates. Best place for lunch in this nice town sul Garda.

We went for my boyfriends birthday for a special treat and it did not disappoint! An absolute must if you are in this part of the... More

The menu had its own take on itailian not what you would get from one of the tourist trap restaurants on the waterside. The manageress front of house and her husband the chef make a great team the knowledge of the food and... More
