Our 'normal' restaurant we eat at was closed so it gave us the excuse to try somewhere else this time. La Porta is in a nice little courtyard (shared with another restaurant). It was a Saturday lunch time in August and was surprisingly quiet. We were given the choice where to sit so sat on the first tables so we... More

Always very full, but still very friendly - lots of fun and first-name terms. We ate there twice and were not disappointed. Classic Carpaccio, terrific Trota Salmonata (typical Lake Garda speciality of salmon trout), not to mention all the usual Bruschettas, pizzas and pastas. Excellent vini bianco della casa.

This restaurant sits next to the Biri in a courtyard and it is easy to mix up. The staff were very friendly. Service is prompt but the restaurant does get extremely busy and everyone seems rushed off their feet. The food is very good and typical for Bardolino. The spaghetti allo scoglio and mixed grilled seafood were delicious. The wine... More

Great range of traditional Italian fare. Priced in line with most other places. Pizzas were excellent!

This seems like a touristy sort of place and it is right in the middle of the town. However, the food was surprisingly good. The only thing that let it down was the inability of the waiter to change an order for a 2nd course immediately after it was sent in.

Good food and nice atmosphere, even allowing for the musician who sang some old Dean Martin songs as well as some that were obviously local favourites. Slightly confusing as there are 2 restaurants in the same space with just a few feet between.

Shares the same square as Restaurant Biri (please see my review) these are rivals that will fight to get you into their restaurant in a friendly manner. Both restaurant were packed on the night we visited. Service in La Porta was friendly and efficient. We had Fresh Mussels and Bruschetta with Tomatoes to start followed by a lovely Fillet Steak...

Good food, nice friendly service. Good choice on menu and not overpriced. We ate there every night during our stay in Bardolino.

We ate here on our 4th night in Bardolino, the entrance is a little confusing as this restaurant shares frontage with Restaurant Biri - so we were confronted with 2 menus and maitre d's competing for our custom which felt a little awkward. The food was simple yet tasty (proper italian) although my pasta was a little on the buttery... More
