The food is great but the Mascot is even more worth a visit!!!

This is the second year we have had dinner here. We were a big group but still they made me a special vegetarian gourmet dinner. The best I ever had. You gotta meet their Mascot, he is to die for.

At the restaurant you'll find great fish and meat dishes but you'll also find a vegan menu. The chef changed some of the ingredients for me since I've had dinner there 5 days in a row. He offered me dishes that weren't on the menu and they were still vegan. Great job!

We visited one evening mid week in february - so about as dead/quiet a time as you can get for the Lake Garda area - on my wife's birthday. We found a warm and friendly welcoming, in a charming, beautiful and almost perfectly appointed property. We were the only guests for a short time, and then only 2 other tables... More

My husband had booked this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. Hidden in the hills above Gargnano this boutique hotel is in a lovely position, the view is unforgettable.

We had a nice visit to this restaurant. The macaroni with the truffle and ham was delicious although one other pasta was slightly over-cooked, as were some vegetables. It is unusual not to have any side orders to select from and despite having a long wine list there were no wines by the glass on the menu but when we... More

We were staying at LeFay nearby and decided to try this due to its Trip Advisor rating. We were not dissappointed. The macaroni with truffle was absolutely outstanding and my wife's pasta with lobster was delicious but beware the portion is huge!!!! Service really nice and friendly and in my opinion it's not expensive. Well worth a visit.
