We visited Osteria Gatto d'Ora twice on our recent holiday to Lake Garda, and both times were fantastic. The restaurant is very romantic and the food is excellent. It isn't cheap but you certainly get what you pay for...There was practically a whole truffle on the pasta dish I ordered! Sabina the owner/chef makes you feel so welcome...it really is... More

We ordered stuffed Wild Boar and stuffed Deer. Both were more like salty beef stew with one having cherry tomatoes in, and very expensive.

The place is extremly dog-friendly which is really nice. Unfortunately the food was only of ok quality. The dishes sound nice but the realisation is too boring, so in my opinion the prices are way to high for what you get. It's was an ok experience, we will not come again.

We've been here with our dog and the owner has just Bernd amazingly welcome and friendly. All pasta was homemade, the meat delicious! If you are looking for a restaurant with great food, some local stories (in German, Italian or English) this is it! Also you can bring your dog and he or she will be as welcome as you... More

Food is good, and the owner introduces dishes with sweet little stories about them. Unfortunately service was slow, our evening's dinner took four hours, most of the time spent waiting. (And only three tables were taken)

We had great Sunday dinner at Sabina's osteria. At our arrival we were warmly welcomed by Sabina. We were impressed by warm atmosphere which was created by candles and Sabina's hospitality - we felt like being guest of her home. Food was great and traditional Italian cuisine.

Saw the reviews and thought, well we should give it a try, so glad we did! Food was good, not exceptional and a little salty for our tastes, but definately enjoyable. The atmosphere is enchanting, if a little questionable. Worth a visit, but wouldn't return.

All other reviews do not lie. Do you want to experience amazing food from friendly owner in a very special atmosphere? This is the place for you! If you do not enjoy character and personality, look elsewhere :-). And the food really is amazing, even for Italian measures. The owner is the cook at the same time and you can... More

Make sure you allow all evening for your meal!! The very nice lady Sabrina who cooks, waitresses and welcomes makes the evening a pleasant but slow experience. The food was quite good (no fish/seafood on menu) highlights were the homemade cakes for dessert! Picking your own wine from the shelf was a nice touch.
