The view; sunset across the shimmering waters, gentle buzz of other diners, water lapping, no nasty Muzak.. What could be better? Perhaps the food. Our starter, a sharing platter of lake fish for two, consisted of smoked salmon or trout - excellent, a couple of sardines with onion, and some white fish with caper sauce, not a vast amount but...

I had a dinner in this restaurant some days ago: superlative romantic atmosphere, gentle and polite staff, traditional italian cuisine, well-sized portions with very high quality products, medium price target. Try it!

Food was excellent and a perfect view of the lake. Service was good and the price reasonable. Unfortunately as we were there during low season it was not open in the evenings, but would definitely recommend.

The fish is excellent, especially the Sea Bream. Lots of choice and good friendly staff. Location next to the Lake is also a plus, but would recommend the seating just outside the entrance as opposed to the jetty seating which can become a little crowded.

We had good service and lovely food at this lake side restaurant. Worth a vist, we got there just before sunset to get the most amazing views and pictures while we were eating. The pasta dishes were lovely and fresh as were the salads.

All in all there is nothing much special to tell. The location directly at the lake is great, althoug the food is pretty much standard italian, not espacially brilliant but no real downsides either. For that pricing seems a bit too high, but not too high to give it a try. I had a nice evening without any remarkable ups... More

location great - lakeside food very tasty (one of the best lasagna I ever ate) staff above average I cannot say anything bad, but did not impress me to be excited about this restaurant.

I wrote about this restaurant last year but it was so good that we went back again this year - we were not disappointed. Their fish meals are splendid.

This is one of a few restaurants serving more than just pasta or pizza. It is run by a mother and her two daughters and the standard of service and food is high while the prices are similar to other restaurants. It has a beautiful terrace over Lake Garda where you can have a relaxed dinner and watch the sun... More
