Just Had to write a review after visiting La Tortuga. The food was wonderful, the service attentive but unobtrusive, the atmosphere calm and gentle. The price was really fair for a restaurant of this standard. Definitely woth a return visit

the atmosphere, the constant rithm of the coming of food, the quality of it, the special wines, the kindness of the service: an ideal evening for a romantic dinner...

Had a very nice meal here. The menu is small and many fish dishes which you would expect given the proximity to the lake. Dishes are very rich! The foie gras was excellent and beautifully presented. The pasta was good but not so special. Service was warm and inviting but very professional. Overall very enjoyable but a little over priced... More

As good food as I’ve eaten anywhere. Pricey but sophisticated, high-end cooking of the highest standard. The tasting menu was a lovely experience.

This is a small cosy traditional restaurant. Mama in the kitchen, daughter and father taking well care of the guests. The food specially the pasta was really superb! The best I have had in a long time. The prices are not cheap but worth it.

Excellent restaurant, with food, wine and service unexpected in a little lakeside town. It is not cheap, but well worth every euro. The degustation of lake specialties is fabulous. You do need to book ahead as it is very popular.

Quite old fashioned and indoors. Lovely food. It livened up as the evening went on as more glamorous diners arrived!

This is a great little place in the charming town of Gargnano, and a nice spot to have dinner at least one night if you stay at the Villa Feltrinelli and want one more casual dinner. The local fish, persico, is the thing to have, but everything else is good, as well. Very nice people run the place. Good wine... More
