Truly superb. Others say a little more expensive, but I think the restaurant offers true value. A small menu to me is encouraging. This was definitely the best meal we enjoyed during the whole holiday. Thank you.

We were passing by, looking at the displayed menu when the owner started to shout at us in Italian. He obviously thought we'd block other people's view of said menu... No need to tell him I know enough Italian to understand all he said.
The place was empty and remained so every time we passed that day. Small wonder...

non ho mai risposto a una recensione straniera ma il troppo storpia. Se quattro aduti e due bambini con vassoi di tranci di pizza e bottiglie varie si fermano davanti al tuo menù impedendone la lettura e ostruendo la scala di accesso pubblico per bivaccare penso che non ci sia nulla di male nel cercare di farli allontanare, se poi questi ti ridono in faccia allora se le cercano. La popolazione Svizzera è nota per la sua precisione, correttezza ed educazione quindi questo signore non può essere Svizzero non avendo nessuna di queste tre doti ma dimostrandosi solo uno strafottente maleducato , ma a luglio e agosto si sa bisogna aspettarsi qualsiasi tipo di gente. Esorto trip Advisor a tutelare di più 'le varie attività commerciali non permettendo che recensioni simili danneggino l'immagine delle varie attività . Penso che a breve dovrò rispondere a un fatto analogo di prepotenza accaduto oggi quindi che dire viva l'estate

Excellent lasagne and tortellini but sea bass tartare was under-seasoned and a little too rustic and wine underwhelming. Shame as might have sneaked a 4 otherwise.

We visited twice on our holiday to Sirmione. The first visit we were the first diners, but the interior looked classy and non touristy, we prefer to eat inside when the temp is in the mid 30’s. The menu is limited but in my opinion this is a sign of fresh, we’ll cooked food. We had the Fillet and it was excellent. The staff are friendly and professional, a bit more expensive than others but well worth it.

We took a gamble as no one was in the restaurant, but what a good choice. Excellent food and service. Bit more expensive than than other restaurants but well worth it. Would definitely recommend
