I have dined in some of the finest restaurants in the world...and Torcol ranks in my top 10.... first the ambiance is intimate,quiet,ancient....the servers are knowledgeable and unobtrusive..I have to say the server I had was amazing and his recommendations for the wine and dinner choices were perfect! An osteria should have the best wines...he recommended Bastelle From Soave.. which... More

I ordered a gnocchi dish which was bland. My husband ordered a fish dish that he said was nice but not great. The restaurant is a bit hard to find, it sits atop a small hill.

Ate here on a recent visit to Sirmione. What sets this restaurant apart in a resort full of good restaurants is the ambience. This is a family run restaurant and it shows, mother shows you to the table and son takes the orders. Good specials , we both had fish, and excellent wine list and all in all a really... More

Didn't actually manage to eat anything at this establishment - not for the want of trying!! First attempt: booking a table an hour before opening - "no tables available Sir but you could come back and try your luck later". Passing by an hour & a half later there are plenty of tables free!! In the meantime we've managed to... More

35 minutes of waiting to order, hardly anyone in the restaurant. Told no , wait when we asked for balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Then told no can only have balsamic if we have salad. Everything too difficult and they were short bad rude to my wife. I also see this is a theme of this restaurant. Food is below... More

Ate in the covered garden of this lovely restaurant. Service was very good as was the food. A very nice atmosphere and great menu. Would definitely recommend if in the area.

My husband and I booked in advance to ensure we had a table for our last evening in Sirmione, based on the excellent reviews on here we were really looking forward to a great meal, but sadly was so disappointed! The restaurant is beautiful and we were seated on the covered terrace opposite the main building. It didn't start well... More

Sirmione is a little overrun so we headed for this recommended restaurant for lunch. Really good and friendly service and excellent local food. Waiter recommended an excellent local wine, Simut, which is sadly made in too small quantities for export. It went perfectly with the excellent pasta. A must if you visit Sirmione.

We ate 2 of 4 dinners in Sirmione at al Torcol. If we had begun our stay in town with dinner at al Torcol, that number most likely would have been 4. This is a calm little restaurant a bit removed from the competing gelaterias of Sirmione. While the atmosphere for the diner is relaxed, the skill and imagination of... More

We were very lucky to get a table on chance - tens of people were turned away just a little later as they were full. Always a good sign. The ambience is very nice - it is a quite oasis in a very busy town. The menu was limited but again I take this to be a good sign. We... More
