Description: For more than 100 years Restaurant Risorgimento has been a famous resort in old town Sirmione: at Risorgimento's you'll find an excellent traditional cuisine served in a warm ambience, a wide range of wines with more than 1100 labels from all over the world and an exclusive 'Cigar-Room'. It really is hard to find words to describe just how good the food is at Risorgimento's. The seasons play a huge part in the menu here to ensure the highest quality at all times: combining classic Italian ingredients with European flavours, each dish is a plate of absolute perfection in both presentation and flavours.

“Disappointing, had expected something better.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

We had booked in advance for a party of five but were only offered a table for four with an additional chair placed on the end. We pointed to an adjacent table set for six and asked for this but they declined. Only when we said we would leave did they eventually agree to seat us! There were mixed reviews from our party on the food; four of us had the flambé fillet of beef which had to be cooked inside due to the breeze. We asked for medium but it was actually very rare. Tip for others - ask for it to be medium to well done if you don't like it raw and bloody. Crepes for pudding were cooked outside and were excellent. When the bill arrived we queried two items that we had not received and they were subsequently removed although we were charged €25 as a cover charge!!! All in all, this was not a great experience and we won't be going back.

“good experience in a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

we stayed in Sirmione on lake Garda and next to our hotel was the restaurant Rrisorgimento in a piazza full of other restaurants. this one is very elegant and nice and the food and service were excellent. we returned again on another evening and ordered a fish for 2 persons. it is covered with a heap of salt and they clean the fish for you and divide it to two portions with all kind of vegetables. wonderful! with a bottle of good wine - can you ask for more?

“Good Food with Good View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

This restaurant was nestled in the main piazza. The outside seating was a little cramped, but the food and waiting staff were excellent. We finished our meal with crepe suzette with ixed berries and ice cream, cooked at the table. This made a wonderful finish to the evening meal/

“A gem of a restuarant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

Went here at the recommendation of the conciege. It is located right on one of the main squares and I got a table at the edge of the walkway (it was fine). I ordered a soup (very nice and tasty) and a steak.

The steak was cooked at the table and it was very interesting to watch it being done. It was perfect. Only slight let down was the vegatable side dish arrived as the chef started cooking the steak so they were cold by the time the steak was ready. Still I enjoyed the meal and it was reasonably priced given the quality and the location.
