The best part of this restaurant is the view from the first floor overlooking the castle. For starters we had the prawn cocktail, nothing wrong with that. The other starter was squid stuffed with ricotta and basil. This was disgusting as the squid tasted of nothing and had the consistency of rubber. This Was pointed out to the waiter who was rather indifferent to the issue. We both wanted Seabass for main course of which there were four different dishes on the menu but none were available so on recommendation we chose the trout from lake Garda. This was proudly presented to us once cooked and then taken away to be taken off the bone. Clearly the waiter wasn’t that skilled at such a task and when eventually returned looked a bit of a mess. I rather wished that we had been given the whole fish ourselves to take off the bone. The fish certainly wasn’t that fresh. We never had a pudding as we were never offered one. The service was rather haphazard not up to the usual standard one gets in Italy. One might make exception for poor service if the restaurant was very full but this wasn’t really the case.

Lots of character and good amount of seating in two floors. The lower floor has a veranda look to it and flowers and plants give privacy from the wandering tourists as they walk past the castle.

Thoroughly enjoyed a nice piece of salmon. Added roast potatoes which seemed odd but they were so delicious it made the meal for me. Depending how hungry you are you may want a few courses but the size of salmon and veg was perfect for me. Good selection of dishes from western favourites of burger and pizza to quality local fare. Also a place to sample some excellent wine. Stylish without being pretentious. Opposite castle wall.

Good efficient staff and friendly too.

We had an excellent experience at Piccolo Castello. It's in a great location with views of the castle from the porch (downstairs or upstairs) and the service is friendly. I would recommend the trout (it comes as a whole fish but they will clean it for you)...at the time of my visit it was only 12 euros and was about the best fish I'd had anywhere, even at more expensive restaurants.
