The restaurant has a lovely setting, but the food was less than mediocre. All three dishes in the menu degustazione di Aqua were tasteless and only the dessert was nice. First I was served polenta with octopus, then spqghetti with octopus followed by a tiny piece of fish dipped in something tasting like polenta. The staff were not very attentive despite the place being almost empty. My worst dining experience during my stay in Sirmione. And also the most expensive one.

Restaurant is small from the outside, once in it goes back a long way.
Not on the lake but you can see it from the outside seating near the garden area.
Food was very nice, not fantastic but very good. Staff were brilliant, very helpful and attentive. Good help with the wine.
Decor is very nice, calming I feel, plenty of room between tables.
Food is freshly cooked, there does seem to be a wait between courses but, in saying that I was quite happy about it.
Is a little bit pricey compared to some but I thoroughly enjoyed the evening there.

Was passing and saw the tasting menu which is a set menu so went in. Lovely ambiance and lovely staff. Was lovely to relax in between courses and let ur courses settle over a lovely bottle of wine. Meal was superb and so was the local wine. Thorougly enjoyed myself such a lovely place and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Come here if u want to enjoy good food in lovely surroundings and take your time to enjoy its well worth it.

we were a group of 16 people, reserved ahead of time. found out we were put in the smoking area. when refused, we could only get 4x4 tables. the smoke penetrated the restaurant from the big door.
we got 3 different set menus with 4 courses. the food was shockingly tasteless. do not get fish from the lake. nothing helped to give it a little taste. even the desert was disappointing.
