The people at the next table ate here two nights in a row, and I understand why! Very high quality food served in a pleasant outdoor patio (if you reserve), for a super reasonable price. The complimentary extras were also unexpected (and unnecessary to make...it a good deal—there was a free full glass of Prosecco, some tasty popovers, and insanely, a full bottle of white wine in a gift bag, delivered after paying our bill!) but all that is a distraction to the truly excellent food and dining experience. Our highlight was the Parmesan and mushroom tart(?) appetizer, which seemed like a savory soufflé. We also enjoyed the ravioli (with truffles!), and the lamb and blueberry main.More

Given how touristy the town is, I was a bit terrified of choosing the wrong restaurant for dinner. Pleased to say, this place was perfection! All the staff who attended to me - from seating to serving to recommendations for wine and dessert - were...attentive and lovely, food was magnificent. Highly recommend! I had the ravioli with Guinea fowl + Sbrisolona for dessert (which had ice cream and even a macaron!). Both came beautifully presented and very tasty!!! Prices were so reasonable!More

This was our favourite meal during our week long trip to Lake Garda and Verona. The terrace is beautiful and the staff were very attentive. We both had the steak Rossini style and it was absolutely delicious. There is a huge variety of fish on...the menu too (dishes that we saw at other tables looked delicious) and a very extensive dessert menu - everything was presented beautifully. Highly recommend the sbrisolona - a traditional Northern Italian almond crumble cake or the peanut parfait with pistachio ice cream. Would definitely return.More

Amazing service and beautiful food. We had a pasta for dessert because it was so good. The space is nicely lit and music is soft and fun. Very romantic. We had a wine that was slightly corked and the manager swapped it over without hesitation....Highly recommendedMore

What a wonderful evening! We thought it looked like a really lovely place to have some food and we were not wrong. We were greeted by the lovely staff who were incredibly friendly and welcoming.. not to mention the complimentary glass of champagne. We decided...to have the degustation. One seafood and one regular with a bottle of the local white wine. All of which was absolutely divine. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful in terms of deciding on wine, food etc. they were extremely attentive and added to such a lovely experience: We had the tiramisu which my partner described as the best she ever had! We were a bit nervous about the price but it was worth every single cent! Finished off with some delicious limoncello! Highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely evening.More

Maybe the best food in Sirmione. The ravioli was excellent with very delicious ingredients. Because of the fine dining character of the dishes, they are small, so you have to order more.

We came very excited to this restaurant and ordered few dishes. We told the waitress that we don’t eat pork cause we are religious. She offered as a nice side with chicken. We received the dish and we called her immediately because the smell was...very wired she told as again this is like chicken don’t worry. Suddenly while I told her I would like to order something else she showed me a picture of a peacock that for our religious is not eatable. We told our waitress and she said: “i’ll take it but you will pay for this, you ordered this.” This was my first time to complain, but this time was very rude of them.More
