We had not such a good experience. “Sorry for my little speaking english” you hear at every non-italian guest table, which turned out in a financial advantage for the owner. No clarity regarding the oral explanation of the content and choices of courses and no availability of a menu resulted in too much starters and pastas. Then they question why not a main course or dessert or more drinks. The price for the starters and pastas is too high. The quality is Ok. But the total meal is out of balance.
Our opinion: better for native italian speakers to go there than for tourists.

We were lucky enough to ring on the morning and get a reservation for that lunchtime. Absolutely loved it. Staff were all so friendly and welcoming. Our young waiter spoke English and was really enthusiastic about all the food and the products used - explaining where they came from (if not from the owner’s farm). He also gave us recommendations from the kitchen. The Agriturismo experience does not have menus - they are explained to you - that’s half the fun! Food was amazing. Fantastic views of Lake Garda before or after your meal. We shared an appetiser, had 2 starters, 2 mains and shared a dessert + salad + veges + 4 wines = under 70E. Outstanding experience. Would repeat!

We visited this lovely located agroturismo restaurant with the open-air bar offered breathtaking view of the garda Lake for family (2+2) diner. We phoned the place to book a table, but it was impossible the same day, but a day after. When we walked in about 7 pm we were one of the first guests and we were offered to start with aperitifs in the open-air bar at the edge of the hill with panoramic view of the Garda Lake. Finally, we went back to the main building for dinner, and in a few minutes all tables were occupied, including two big family events. There is no menu in the restaurant, so you have to follow staff advice, what is not so easy, if you don't speak Italian. It is a bit strange, because it is quite many people working there and no one speaks English well. We were a bit confused, when after "antipasto" (plate with choice of very good Italian hams and other sliced cold meat) and "primi piatti" (extraordinary fettuccine with lemon/safrane sauce and very nice gluten free polenta with mushrooms for my wife) we were offered "dessert". When we finally asked for the main dish, three different staff members came to our table to deliberate how it was possible, that they ... has forgotten to bring our main dish. They decided to come with it after dessert, but I was not able to eat meat. My wife has tried and it was delicious. That do not offer kids menu. Finally, there manage this strange situation in a nice way offering as free aperitif and coffee. However, it is really pity, that mistake in the service destroyed very good impression of the place, atmosphere and food. Despite our experience I would recommend the place for my friends, but advice also an owner of the place to train at lest one staff member in English :)

We had the pleasure of having diner this evening at the agroturismo Bel di Bertussi. We made the reservation by telephone 2 hours before (prepare yourself because they hardly speak any English) and arrived at 19h30. Luckily because the restaurant was fully booked! And now we know why! It was delicious. Our waiter Andrea is wonderful and does a great job! He is the only one speaking a little English but the way he does it is heart warming. Our kids had a pasta with beef ragout (pasta bolognaise) and we had a pasta pesto (home made) and a pasta with tomato sauce and courgette and black olives. Really delicious. Afterwards we had tagliata al manzo (grilled steak) with a salad. Baked perfect. To end we had a tiramisu and figue pie with an extra free piece of home made apple pie. All this accompanied by a bottle of rosé wine (production of a house of the village) and some coffee.
The only minus is that the location is TOP but you have to walk 20 meters from your chair to see the beautiful lake and thus no lake view from your table.
There is a swing for the kids and a big garden to play.
The price for this experience is in our opinion low.
We will go back!!
