Stumbled upon this place walking around. With lots of tourist traps in Sirmione, we were happy to find this cute little terrace, in the shade on a quieter street with a limited menu. I ordered my favorite Gnocchi pomodoro. Although the portion was not huge...More

We took a gamble as no one was in the restaurant, but what a good choice. Excellent food and service. Bit more expensive than than other restaurants but well worth it. Would definitely recommend

Forfine the head waiter/owner for his lack in service skills, and eat a great meal and enjoy the best service because of his firm managing hand. Recommended!
