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... read 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. Go in the light of the evening. The food is delicious as well as the wine! Most of the people were residents in the dinning room. Being middle aged my only gripe... More

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

My husband and I, like others on here, have been staying at Lefay nearby to this little gem whilst on our honeymoon.

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.

Great food and good service although waiters don't speak the best English. The lady on front desk was very helpful and and spoke great English. If you are staying at Lefay and walked over. Allow 25 mins for the walk, we took it rather casually and it is mainly down hill. The owner will drive you back after dinner, just... More

The Sostaga serves exelent food in very nice surrendings, spectaculare view of Lake Garda. A nice winelist as well. The service could have been more attentiv; The owner (?) had a round asking if everything was fine, for the rest not much attention. All in all a place that I would recommend.
