“Ristorante IL PORTICHETTo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

I come to Bardolino for 4 years now and very often I try to eat in this restaurant. The food is great but I do not like the anonymity of the service. I come here very often however always have problems with booking or service. I think in a place like this, especially in Italy this should not happen. I eat well but anyway I'm disappointed.

“Recommended by locals....here's why”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Having visited Bardolino several times we know some of the local people. One lady recommended this restaurant and made a booking for us as she thought that it was more 'real' than most of the others. She was correct - the food was really incredible, about 10 - 20% more than the others but really worth it. The house special spaghetti with seafood quite special, the fresh 'lavarello', white fish from the lake absolutely fresh. We went again the next night and the food was just as good. Expect to pay between €55 - €65 for one course each including wine, water, and coffee. Be assured that you only need one course each! It's located just behind the town hall (Municipio). Leo, one of the waiters has excellent english. Highly recommend.

“A lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Having been tipped off about this restaurant by a friendly local we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. The quality of the food both times was top class and the staff were very friendly. It is a family run restaurant and it is clear that everyone tries hard to keep the standards high. It has a very nice inside dining room and an outside dining area just off the lake front promenade.

“Nice setting and good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

This restaurant is located in the corner of a pretty square just off the esplanade in Bardolino. We arrived late towards the end of lunch and were pleasantly received and quickly served with delicious mixed seafood for two. Menu was otherwise quite varied and we would have liked to stay in the town for longer and try again.
