We only ate here once but we enjoyed it. It was very quiet the evening we visited, just us and one other table of three people. Has a nice atmosphere, quite a rustic feel. Food was good, very reasonably priced, and the staff/owners were nice and friendly.

We took a friend's recommendation and came to eat here last week one evening and we were very pleasantly surprised. It is an old Italian restaurant, family owned and run, and you can tell that the locals frequent it. The atmosphere may not be up to modern standards but the food is good and the red wine our waiter Stefano... More

This restorant at the via Sole is one of the best choice in Gargnano, Nothern Italy. The pasta was very Italian. And the wine was well from the region.

Simply excellent food, wine and service for those who appreciate the great value of a restaurant run with passion and not (yet) Michelin stars. If outside is booked out, ask for a table inside at the window looking at the lake (and open the windows wide). Highly recommendable!

Pleasant little village on the hill, nice vegetable buffet we really enjoyed a lot, great service, cozy environment, great fresh lake fish and steak! Be sure to stop at the great Olive Oil press / tour / store near here too!

We came here pretty early in an rainy November evening. Don' go there if you expect something trendy or stylisch... it's a rustic place and when later on guests arrived we realized that there were just locals...well we learned why! The food was so delicious, really like homemade... Pasta, meat, cold cut plate...the helpings were very generouse and the service... More

It's a good restaurant, they're fast. And the price is good and the staff are friendly. You have to go in a car, because there's too much to walk up. But in all it's a perfect place with organic food and wine.
