“Lovely food and nice service”

Ristorante dei Poeti
Ranked #72 of 189 Restaurants in Sirmione
Description: In the lively atmosphere of the centre of Sirmione, overlooking the main square and alongside the jetty, the Poets’ Restaurant is the perfect setting for lunches and dinners on the lake. The room, large and sophisticated, is enclosed with large windows. Outside, the tables are arranged on a terrace and a jetty next to the water. The cuisine, offered both to hotel guests and non-guests, including in the afternoon, is made from fresh, selected ingredients and is the work of the chef Cristiano Aldegheri. The menu creatively interprets the typical dishes of local tradition; among the most classic offers are some four-star dishes, for gastronomic experiences of the highest qualiy, always in line with the recommendations of Dr Anna Villarini, a biological nutritionist who applies the most authoritative nutritional recommendations.

Terrible service- they absolutely don’t care about clients and not welcoming. Wouldn’t give me a table near the water (solo traveler issue?) but only 1 of the 10 table was taken the entire time. Meal was average but priced above average. Very very disappointing because the restaurant is well located

We visited Sirmione from Verona on the last day of our holiday. We had had 5 days of rain and this was a beautifully sunny day. We wandered into the square near to the hotel and like the lovely dining area right next to the lake. We had drinks first right at lakeside whilst we chose what to eat.
For our lunch we ,over onto the patio again still overlooking the lake. Food and service were all fabulous and considering the excellent location the meal was very reasonable.
The staff were all very friendly especially considering we at late in the lunchtime period. The waiter helped us with all our questions regarding the food menu and wine. The food was all delicious, fresh and beautifully cooked and presented.
A perfect spot, lovely food, staff and surroundings. Would highly recommend.

Well, I don’t even know where to begin! We sat down for lunch and ordered our meal and wine. There were about 4 tables with customers outside, all were given their drinks along with a basket of bread. We weren’t given any bread, which was a little annoying, but not the end of the world. When the food arrived, we ordered another glass of wine each but the waiter knocked mine over which was still over half full. The table cloth was sodden, along with my friends iphone. There was no apology or offer of a replacement glass of wine. My friends food was luke warm, a very small portion and didn’t have much flavour (ravioli). My very simple plate of cold meat was so thickly sliced and fatty, I couldn’t even chew it. Both overpriced and barely edible. I wouldn’t have given my meat to a dog!

The plates were taken away, mine still had half the meat left on it-no one asked if everything was ok (it clearly wasn’t). I had to ask for the spilt wine to be replaced. We ordered an espresso each...we asked twice. After at least 15minutes, when it still hadn’t been brought to us, we decided to just give up and ask for the bill. Another 10 minutes later, after asking 3 times for the bill, I gave up and went inside to get it and pay.

This was supposed to be a lovely lunch in Sirmione, Lake Garda, which we had travelled 100km to get to and it spoilt our day.

I do not recommend this restaurant one bit and we were £50 out of pocket after an extremely unsatisfying lunch. McDonald’s would have been better!

Location was good, service was good and friendly. The food was poor. Very expensive and not original italian. This can be so much better if they would get a cook who cares for Italian food. This is the worst ‘Italian’ food we had during our holiday.
