“Lake front views. Terrible service..........”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Spent the day exploring along the west side of Lake Garda and stopped in Salo for a walk and lunch. Found TipTap alongside the waterfront. Seemed very busy so thought it should be good. So wrong. Unfriendly staff, waited and waited for a table. Rude guests were allowed to push ahead of us to get a table!!!!! Would not recommend to try. Better looking for a better place.... Sorry!!!!!!

“Great location, mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Such a shame that this place is not what it could be. We both had a very simple salad so weren't expecting a gourmet meal. We went there because of the view of the lake and the location can hardly be bettered. Other reviews say it all really.

“A lovely meal, plenty of food and friendly waiters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

I was surprised to read some of the comments relating to this restaurant after we visited it for dinner. I have to say that the waiters were friendly and attentive throughout and when the food arrived it was more than enough and very tasty. Yes, perhaps the lady accepting the payment could have been a little more friendly, however this did not detract too much from the overall experience. Also worth mentioning that the view is gorgeous as the restaurant looks right up the length of the Lake whether you are inside or outside. The inside is completely surrounded by glass and affords you a panoramic view...

“One waiter was friendly.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

The "Lady" at the door was unfriendly. The main waiter was unfriendly. The second waiter (young guy) was friendly. Food, prices, atmosphere were average. They're only living from the location and tourist. I would definitely avoid this place in the future and suggest others to go ANYWHERE else.

“Worst Italian Stereotipical Restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

- Waiters could barely speak / understand ITALIAN
- Food was of poor quality and quantity was insufficient

For your reference I am an Italian person used to travel all around the world both for business purposes and for leisure (I am also used to budget restaurants but this due to its location/prices couldn't be considered as a budget place at all).
Due to time (2.30pm) few restaurants were still serving lunch (Tuesday) so we had to stop at TipTap even though the appearance / menu did look typical for attracting tourists (and getting money from them).
We even complained with the owner himself about the service and the food but he couldn't be bothered... This was the worst part maybe: not to care cause you will have many visitors due to your strategical location - no interest in the customer only in the money.
I am really disappointed and ashamed as Italian to have similar places... they do not stand up to our tradition and contribute to build bad stereotypes.
