A wonderful restaurant - food was all beautifully presented and the service was excellent.
The steak and fish dishes were fantastic.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

“excellent, should be in top 5!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Just enjoyed a wonderful meal at Maria Callas, service unobtrusive and very efficient and friendly. Food excellent and large portions, share starters is my advice! Bottle of good Bardolino 16E and lovely situation just off the main shopping street in Sirmione. Highly recommended.

“Degraded”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

This was the third year we visited Sirmione and had lunch at Maria Callas. The service is still good, well above italian standard, but the food was far from what it used to be. We tried a home made para with smoked cheese and mushrooms and it was just terrible and a home made Gnocchi with tomato sauce which had no texture at all. Fair enough the service might deserve better then one star but as we couldn't finish any of the courses one star it is. There are many restaurant options in Sirmione and I suggest you try one of them.

“Quality food and good service for reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

The menu had several enticing dishes, but as always I could just order one. Both the main course and desert were delicious. The waiter and waitress were very polite and genuine - unlike most other experiences in Italy this holiday. The house wine was very tasteful and poured in at the table. This and other small touches gave a quality experience. The restaurant is nicely situated just outside the crowded streets of tourist hotspot Sirmione. I would recommend to anyone.

“Avoid, nicer places in Sirmione”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Simply.... Limited menu, but we seen items that sounded delicious so decided to eat here. What happened was bland, unexciting food, ok service. Won't be going back.
