This place has good pizzas and pasta served well at the beautiful piazza.
You get good food and nicely priced.
Good value for money.

If you're travelling to Sirmione from other lakeshore locations this is the first place you come to getting off the boat, and you should pass it by. The "moderno" cocktail was undrinkable, and we ordered the vegetarian crepes and what we got was some sort of tasteless baked pasta/ricotta combination that was cold in the middle. Ugh. Similarly, the "salad with grilled vegetables" consisted of lettuce with a few pieces of undercooked and completely unsalted and unspiced eggplant and zucchini. Double ugh. A soccer game was playing on the restaurant TV while we were there and the restaurant staff kept encouraging some idiot on the second floor of the restaurant to set off airhorns repeatedly. Overall, an experience that we would sooner forget.

We popped in here for lunch as we wanted a quick bite to eat and not a more formal meal.

This restaurant is situated in the largest, most touristy, piazzas in Sirmione. The area is full of hustle and bustle and is the main hub for tours to meet up.

The staff are pleasant but not really interested in you!

The tables in the restaurant are very closely packed together and most customers do not spend long here.

The menus are hideously touristy with photographs of the dishes, but to be honest, at that moment in time it was kind of what we wanted - just a quick sandwich before carrying on with our adventures!

The quality of food was fine. I had a cesar salad and my husband had a frittata sandwich. It was the closest Sirmione gets to fast food but for a quick lunch it was OK. I would probably go back if I found myself in need of a quick lunch again and it was nearby!

I have no complaints about Bar Moderno (except perhaps that 12 Euros was a lot for my salad which was basically Romaine lettuce, lots of mayonnaise, some croutons and a slice of ham, but Sirmione in general seems to be highly priced), it just simply didn't 'wow' me!

Total bill 22 Euros for salad, sandwich and large water

Wanted dinner and found this place by chance. Really nice food, excellent service in small open square near the landing stage. We had between us, lasagne, sea bass and entrecôte, all good. Tiramisu a inflight for dessert.
