Small and intimate, there is an atmosphere of family run locanda. Staff is friendly and the food is great. Slightly more expensive than tourist restaurants on the lake but you won't regret anything. Pasta is great, but they are most famous for their T-bone.

This restaurant is conveniently located just off the main road to the Garda Lake. The location is lovely and peaceful and the service is above the average. They really make you feel comfortable with the menu and the wine list as well. Appetizesers and T-Bone steak are my favourite but believe that also pasta may easily be above the average

This is a well known restaurant locally and mainly where they make their income. In the good weather, the meals are served on a lovely big Terrace. The food is very good, however, I felt overpriced and we ate there 3 times and each time received a very substantial bill!

This family-owned restaurant offers high-quality food and service: great value for your money. Freshly-made appetizers are mounth-watering and prepare your palate for the main-course. Their specialty is the T-bons steak, here commonly called Fiorentina. Have it rare, please!!! If you are a meat lover this is a must-try dish. Also their rib-eye is excellent, juicy and flavourful. If you are... More
