“Great food in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We ate here twice during our stay in San Felice Del Benaco. Its a short walk from the Eden village campsite and the pizzas are very good indeed. Try the one with cheese, tomato and onion MMMMM! The one with cream and mushrooms is great too. The Mixed fried fish was not the largest but fine for the price. The management and staff were friendly and attentive and very efficient.if you're lucky enough to get a roadside table the view onto the harbour is great for wathching the boats coming and going.

“back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Another year and after arriving and unpacking the first stop is always Gran Fausto. New paintwork, more modern appearance which is lovely but it is still the food that that wins all the prizes. The choice and the freshness are all up to their usual high standard be it meat fish or pasta. The pizze are still the best we have ever tasted. The morrelino di scansanso is a wine of terrific value and goes with most dishes-at a very reasonable price.
The view across the lake and the boats in the harbour nearby all add to a wonderful dining experience--only surpassed by the attentive, efficient and above all friendly staff. Counting the days till next year!

“pizze wonderful-never eaten better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have been on holiday in Portese every year for the last 22 years. When we eat out it is always at Gran Fausto. Yes, the pizza is very very good, but other items of the extensive menu, have never disappointed.
The friendly staff have changed little over the years which says a lot for the management-- who are also very helpful and accommodating.
Our only problem is that it is so far from Glasgow!

“Good pizza and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Was happy with this restaurant. Family of 4. All happy with the food.

Only annoyance was the lad playing accordian outside the restaurant and sending his family in to collect money for the annoyance.

Got great seat outside looking out into the marina
