Just tucked away a short walk away from main square and tourist track is the hidden gem L'Ozioso Castellano.We visited nearly every night during our recent holiday and found it perfect, great choice of beers and very tasty food, offering a change to some of the more pretentious and overpriced restaurants in the centre. The hosts were very friendly making... More

Nice location @ the feet of Desenzano's castle and few steps away from old port. Nice & well served German beer. Cozy place; available outdoor and indoor seats. Haven't tried food yet.

We came across this restaurant and decided it would be a nice change to have a hamburger. There is a great selection on the menu, we both opted for hamburgers and fries. Burgers were over done (almost burnt) but not bad. The restaurant is off the beaten track away from the usual touristy restaurants. I would go back to this... More

The owners of this awesome place really took care of upgrading the quality of food, the ambience of the restaurant and the beer choice. This by far is the easy going casual place you want to go when you are hanging around in Desenzano on a Sunday afternoon or any evening. We had an amazing time, great beers and outstanding... More

After reading the favourable reviews, we decided to give L'Ozioso a try. Sadly, it wasn't really for us. The portion sizes are enormous and actually the food wasn't too bad although it appeared to be very salty and I was having to drink glasses and glasses of water all night. However, it just all seemed a bit grubby. My husband... More

In our vacation in Desenzano we came to the restaurant purely randomly. Because we wanted to search a restaurant for eating. It is a bit hidden in an alley. The first thing we noticed is that there has been Austrian beer (Hirter). The owner and the waiter are really high class. The food is really great. From this point we... More
