The dinner for 2 that we were able to select and share different things was great. It was so good we could not finish it and the staff saved it for us for breakfast- chocolate in the morning is sooo good

Well worth seeking out, and braving the long, narrow drive. Engaging proprietor takes obvious delight in pleasing his guests. Lovely food, friendly service, tremendous views, superb old building.

We went to Sostaga for our last dinner from the nearby Lefay resort. Such a great experience it was. The waiters were very pleasant and the food was extraordinary. I would like to especially praise the wine recommendation we got with our red meat - local merlot. The top dish was however mine starter - beef tartar with strawberry flavour.... More

I am a restaurant owner, and consider myself fair when critiquing restaurants. However this establishment went well beyond my expectations. Everything that needed to its box ticked done so with 5 stars.

Had a fantastic evening here. Food was excellent, upon informing the wait staff on arrival I was gluten free they quickly helped me decide what to have, and how they could change the way they prepared the food to ensure it was gluten free. This was outstanding.. and to top it off they gave me my own basket of gfree... More

We were staying at the nearby Lefay Resort and decided to walk the half hour or so to try this restaurant. The food was very good, the service leisurely (some would call it slow) and the setting and views superb. There is a very extensive wine list and our English speaking waiter was helpful and informative enabling us to select... More

Just returned from a one week stay at Lefay Spa Hotel (very near Sostaga Restaurant). We ate here (Sostaga) twice during the week and both my wife and I were impressed on every level. Setting amazing (try to get table on terrace) atop a mountain 600m above Lake Garda, food excellent - fresh, seasonal and authentic, service very good and... More

Well if your looking for a restaurant with a view look no further. The problem i had with this restaurant is 2 fold. Firstly the cab ride there was 50 euro and 60 back so you have to factor that in as well. Next both there and back the ride is totally nauseating and i mean really. This had never... More

Dear Guest I cannot understand your disappointment about the cost of the taxi ride that you paid to come to dine to Villa Sostaga as the normal cost for a taxi ride from Gargnano to Villa Sostaga and back is € 50. So if you are angry about paying the taxi too much you will better complain to whom has... More

Great local food and wines, but the views are simply stunning. No food can compete with that. It's located high above Lake Garda, so it's marginally cooler and away from the maddening crowds at the lake's shore. We've eaten inside in the stunning villa as well as outside in the garden. Both to be recommended. The only downside is the... More
