A place for a memorable meal. The food was excellent, the setting with a view of the lake spectacular, and the service first class. Expect to pay around €130 - 150 for dinner for two, with a bottle of wine.

Best food and most spectacular view. Pasta and beef fillet incredible and the wine was wonderful. If you get chance do make sure you try all four courses for a true Italian experience!

You won't be disappointed if you climb the mountain to this restaurant. The views over Lake Garda are quite something. We visited in a heatwave and the breeze was very welcome. Service is friendly and professional and English is spoken. We had fish soup, bruschetta, pasta with scallops, tiramisu and fruit stuffed with gelato. We couldn't fault it. The desserts... More

Whilst the kitchen staff are clearly very good, excellent fish soup, for example, nice fresh local fish, but very average duck pasta, the service is tired and lacking enthusiasm, and the ambience is dreadful. Over loud outdated 1930s jazz music giving an old fashioned atmosphere and creating a dreary environment. Three different areas to sit, inside main room, inside in... More

I usually wait to get home before posting reviews, but my dinner here last night warrants an exception. So I am writing while I am still in Gargnano to say the seafood soup at Ristorante Sostago is worth the trip across the Atlantic. Seriously, it is that good!!

Dear Guest Among our 212 reviews only very few times I have received a review which questions the validity of the reviews that have been made by our other guests. It does not seem fair to me to question reviews of other guests as since 2011 only 6 guests have given us a poor review. Furthermore I remember very well... More

Went vegan here and really enjoyed it. Desserts are to die for. Fellow fish eaters were not do impressed but I really liked my food. Wine was not to my taste though, too oaky.
