We were climbing the hill for dinner - but it worth it. We had meat platter for a stater, sea bass and sword fish - all top rated. The wine - Riviera del garda Classico - was good. Highly recommended

The home made pasta is succulent. Their prawn kebabs are like a well ending love story. Simplicity and best products go hand in hand

We went to the place lead by TripAdvisor reviews. Wanted to have a special evening - and we had it. Food was very good, portions not too big. Service very good. Will certainly come here next time

This was by far the best restaurant we tried in Desenzano and in fact during our whole stay in Italy. An absolute gem! The pasta was incredible. Home made, cooked to perfection, simply done but with one or two rich, tasty ingredients. We tried the...More

Visited this restaurant after reading all the reviews and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is small and clearly family run. I ate the casoncelli alla bresciana which was quite possibly the best pasta I’ve ever had. The waitress recommended a wine to match. The...More
