“If you really want to eat something typical of the Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

I grew up on Lake Garda and return on a regular basis for family visits and can say that Al Combattente is one of the best restaurants in the lower lake.
It is an unassuming venue that serves day in and day out traditional local recipes, service is cordial and the food... The food is just great.

I strongly recommend you get mixed starters to share (2 orders are enough for 4!) followed by the tagliolini with tench (tagliolini alla tinca). If you are still hungry get fried perch or sarde in saor if they have any although portions are generous and we hardly ever make it past the tagliolini.

Buon appetito!

“Quite simply the best.........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

On our last two visits to Italy, this is simply the best restaurant (of many) we have eaten in. The food is not complicated but is so, so good. As non-meat eaters, we were in culinary heaven - the fish dishes were quite superb - so much so that we ate there on three consecutive nights! The pasta dishes were outstanding and the la signora's lemon sorbet was 'out of this world'!
The restaurant was extremely well run by Luca - he was so welcoming and helpful - and the guys, and his mom's cooking.......I'm lost for words! Great atmosphere, excellent service, good local wines and great value for money. We just wanted to wrap the whole place up and bring it back to Cardiff! Thank you all for a wonderful experience.

If you can locate this restaurant, you should visit it. The food is very good and the service is keen and friendly. Mouth-watering steak and excellent trout. Best meal of the holiday!

“Superb - a real treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Make sure you reserve a table. We didn't the first time we tried to go there and were turned away. But when we did eat there, we were not disappointed. The maitre 'D was very attentive, & charming with our 7 & 8 year old daughters. The food was delicious. The beef was some of the best I have ever tasted. We also took their recommendation to try a local red wine & were far from disappointed.
We didn't have desserts as the 1st two courses were so plentiful, but even so we were brought a complimentary liquour. Quite the loveliest restaurant.
