Exceptionally good food, brilliant service and family friendly. The setting is picturesque, quite unique and with a great play area for children. We shared a plate of superior Parma ham, with a stunning tomato side. We then ate the green pasta and beef with truffle and cheese, both of which were excellent. Grilling meats seems to be the forte. The... More

Being Italian I have been coming to Lake Garda for 20 years. This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area. The setting is nothing short of spectacular and the food even more so. The pasta is simply the best you can get and the main reason i look forward to going back to Lake Garda every year is... More

My sister was adamant we came here...and Thank god! Amazing Amazing service - traditional Italian food that has truly found its place in my heart...and stomach. very busy so advise to book instead of hoping to get a table on arrival! lovely atmosphere and incredible wine cellar.

We went this summer to this restaurant during our holidays in Bardolino. There was a wine sommelier who knew a lot from it and helped us to make the right choice. He did this not only for the wine but also in the courts. On his recommendation we ordered a platte with three pastas that you could share with two... More

The restaurant is immediately giving you a warm and comfortable feeling. The interior design is made with a lot of love for detail and transporting a little bit over the top Italian flair. The outside seating area feels enchanting with all the lights and the placing of the tables gives everyone enough privacy to have a romantic dinner without overhearing... More

We visited on a Saturday night which was busy and the service was a little slow to start with, but the staff were very pleasant. The garden is nice but there was music and something going on either next door or at the far end of the garden. Add to that kids are welcome to run around to the play... More

Love the olive leaves in farmers fashion( a pasta!) and the peanut icecream. The food they serve is of great quality and served with passion. The staff is friendly and the wine is good!

This is easily my favorite restaurant at Lake Garda so far, and I have been to Garda many years. It is a little pricier compared to restaurants in the surrounding area, but not bad compared to DC prices and you get what you pay for. The restaurant has an amazing atmosphere. The garden is very well kept and is filled... More
