The best meal of our 10 day trip

Nothing elegant, nothing fancy, just a charming little restaurant sitting on the side of a charming little street in Limone sul Garda. They do not need bells and whistles though, as the food they serve more than speaks for itself. The super fresh mozarella di buffala (one of the best I have ever... read more

Me and julie, came to Limone as part of a day out, we found this restaurant. We felt it was a little gem of a place. Service was good, food was excellent, menu had every thing italy is famous for and certain recognisable dishes from around the world. This place i can recommend.

The beef we would like to order from the Meny card was not possible. And when we ordered a bottle of red wine (Ripasso - Zenato) - also from the meny card - the answer was again the same. They did not have this wine. We were served by a young lady speaking very good English - and a young... More

We visited this fantastic restaurant twice during our stay in Limone and had two completely faultless dinners. The staff were all very polite and friendly and the service speed was just right. On both occasions when we were provided with the menu, we were also given recommendations...which we both chose to have. The food was beautifully prepared and presented and... More

We had requested a table in the open courtyard but not available when we got there. The waitress came back to us 3 times telling us that our choices... More

Main points of complaint were: Food was average at best and generally tasteless. Specials are not written down and waitress comes and tells you quickly what they are. Remembered two of... More

A small restaurant with great food, a good wine list and super friendly, helpful service. We were in Limone for 4 nights and ate there twice. Need a reservation unless you eat early. Locals were eating there too - a good sign.

Really nice restaurant that still maintains its Italian authenticity despite the concentration of foreign tourists here in Limone. Staff was nice and friendly. The food was very good, it met the expectations. Only disappointment was the fact that they didn't have some dishes that were on the menu. No truffle because at the moment it wasn't the right season. No... More

You really need to book or strike lucky but a small but beautiful setting right in the heart of Limone with exceptional food and great service. Not the lowest cost but worth it for something special or if you are after some brownie points from the Mrs ! The fish of the day was perfect, cooked perfect, tasted perfect and... More
