My wife and I took our daughter here for her 15th birthday and we had a great time. We had the Menu Degustazione for 100 euros and it was worth every penny. Each course was delicious, but a particular favourite was Tartare of Raw marinated Gobbetti prawns. The service was very friendly and the location on Lake Garda just beautiful.

Amazing food, amazing service! Had so much fun. We asked for a dessert wine and they brought us 4 tasting to choose from. All were great but we found a favorite.

We cannot add much to the dialog, as our experience matches that of most others. We can only reiterate: the setting is fantastic, the food is wonderful, the service outstanding. We will come back next time we are visiting Garda.

As it was my birthday, we decided to come here and have the tasting menu. This consists of 8 courses plus an amuse bouche, so it's quite an experience. I could actually have done without the "pre-dessert" of tiny patisserie, but all the other courses were beautifully crafted and absolutely delicious. There's an intensity of flavours that you simply don't... More

We had a fabulous time at this restaurant. The food was exquisite, our waiter Matt was very professional and had a great sense of humour which made our experience even more enjoyable.

We were invited at this restaurant during out visit in Desenzano del Garda. The restaurant is located on the lake and obviously has a wonderful view of the lake. The service is perfect and the staff so well trained! The food is wonderful, a mirage of taste! I recommend the seafood and their desserts!

Great place for a romantic dinner. Staff were happy make recommendations. I was very impressed with the local wine they recommended for about €20 a bottle. The food was also excellent. A very enjoyable evening
