Over the years that we have been visiting Garda, we have often walked passed this restaurant, on the way to the bus station, but never stopped. We had eaten on the Lake front the two previous evenings and found the staff to be not exactly friendly, well what a difference here, very friendly and helpful staff, looked after us as... More

Been to Garda three times now - and vicolo's is always where we head for lunch. Vicolo and the rest of the staff are super friendly. Both him and his son would say 'Bardilino and a beer? When they seen us - which we felt was really sweet as they remembered us. Food is fab and so authentic. The ariabatta... More

We had an hour long wait for a bus up to Malcesine on a Sunday afternoon that coincided with lunch time. We had 2 heavy suitcases with us and chanced upon this excellent little Trattoria after taking the underpass to cross the busy main road by the bus station. We had an excellent al fresco lunch here in the shade... More

We had lunch here, which was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is located in an alley with a limited view of the lake, but we found that the alley provides a soothing brise which was welcome in the mid day heat. The food was great, especially the seafood pasta was excellent with loads of seafood including gigantic shrimps. Winelist... More

Fantastic little find in the heart of the town. The service was very good. Both waitresses very happy to explain food on the menu as our Italian is very limited. The fillet steak was served with amazing chips and my Lillie's seafood pasta was perfect. My creme breule with seasonal peaches was the best. I have never had such a... More

Authentic Italian restaurant. Don't be put off by the lack of views of the Lake. More than makes up for the anti 'commercial' aspect of not being able to see the Lake by offering excellent, home cooked food at sensible prices. Try Lily's seafood pasta.....excellent.

Welcoming and friendly staff, homemade food with fresh flavours. A good wine list. Service is definitely relaxed, but you just have to ask if you need something. Would visit again but there are better places near by. In low season this is one of the few restaurants open but that is no bad thing and certainly didn't feel short changed... More

Great value cuisine with friendly service. Great for a quiet lunch in the shade away from the heat of the day

Visited as a party of three, all having one course, 2 homemade pasta dishes and one lamb cutlets. All very tasty, not fancy (which is why we chose this place), just good, solid home cooked food. Only criticism that for €15 the 3 lamb cutlets were tiny....nice atmosphere a little off the busy lake front.

We ate here twice on our stay - once inside as it was raining, and also outside in the lane. Lovely, well cooked fish and pasta. Great wine. Not expensive. recommended by our hotel.
