This is a culinary experience that I would recommend to all foodies. All the dishes are presented in a very elegant way and are all delicious. The tagliolini neri con gamberi, vongole e salicornia are out of this world and the scallops are so light they just melt in your mouth. The lamb and partridge are cooked to perfection and... More

They don't have outside seating, so you really go here for the food. The atmosphere is very cosy and beautiful decoration, a very warm welcome makes your evening a great one from the very first moment. You really felt like being a guest of a family dinner. We decided for the menu degustation and it was a true discovery! To... More

We stayed at The Feltrinelli which is walking distance from this restaurant . Lovely welcome but rather strange ambience when you walk in .... The food is very good but not sure it was quite Michelin star level ? The walk and visit to the village made this a very nice evening but not Feltrinelli standard . So if you... More

This one Michelin star restaurant with only few tables creates a perfect and romantic ambiente. Very professional and friendly service. Ouality of food is great. Try the seafood of Garda Lakewith amazing preparation by the Chef.

OK food, but nothing special. The restaurant looked like it used to do in the eighties, and there was no windows there. The staff was friendly though. But Im suprised that this restaurant actually has a Michelin star.

Very good not too fussy food. Very good wine list and very friendly staff. I think we made the right decision not to have the tasting menu as our next door table seemed to be eating all night long. This is a proper restaurant .

A Michelin-starred restaurant with prices to match - but worth it! Very nice ambience and excellent service; beautifully presented food that tasted as good as it looked.

While traveling in Italy, this was by far our favorite restaurant and dining experience. Each dish was a masterpiece and for days we all talked about the wonderful evening we had at La Tortuga. The restaurant is small, intimate and as classy as ever. The service staff were wonderful; gracious and attentive without being a distraction. We all selected the... More

8 of us dined here for a friends birthday. It was a real treat! We all had the 8 course tasting menu at €90pp. Each dish was divine but in particular the sea bass was the best I've ever had and the lamb was melt in the mouth delicious. The vegetarian in our group was catered for to an equal... More
