great food and a good wine list, we ate here twice in 4 days and both meals were excellent. The cheese selection board is excellent and they also do a fantastic beer that is served from a champagne shaped bottle and is so smooth to taste.
there is a terrace at the front but sometimes the bar across the street can be quite noisy so pick your time. alternatively try the small terrace at the back which is like being transported to a world of peace and tranquility.

We returned to this restaurant after first finding it in 2009 and again 2010- it was as good as we remembered! The food is simple, delicate and a cut above anything else in Bardolino. The service very attentive, they don't speak much English but appreciate an attempt at Italian. The wine list is the main draw, you can spend a little on a house bottle or an awful lot, we went for a 2007 Barolo (56€) the first night which was fantastic and a 2000 bottle of local Fratta (70€) the second night which was even better! I'd also definitely recommend trying the liquare Fico d'india after your meal, it's delicious!

My wife and I booked in here after reading reviews from Trip Advisor and also from the Michelin Recommendations... We were having a disappointing time in Italy relating to Food and we had high hopes for this Restaurant.

We were not Disappointed...

It is lovely inside, very traditional and quirky. Lot's of Wine Storage etc... There are only about 10 tables inside, but there are more outside (weather dependant).

There was lovely homemade Bread on the table and the waitress who greeted us was polite and attentive, considering we were not speaking her first language.

We ordered the following from the Menu..

Baked Truffle & Cheese Souffle
Chicken Terrine with Chicken Liver Pate.

Marianted Meats with Selected Salts (Hawaiian, Cypriot, Sea, British)
Guinea Fowl Skewers

Chocolate Cake & Apricot Jus
White, Milk & Dark Choc Mousse with Burnt caramel and Pistachio Sauce.

Coffee & Petite Fours...

We were also served with an Amuse Bouche of Sliced Ham with Baby Leaves and Dressing! (Very tasty)

The meal with a bottle of Local Rose and a bottle of Still water came to 97 Euros.

I would recommend this Restaurant to anyone with a love of Good, Tasty Food...

A little more personal than anywhere else - food delicious and a little different, - more character, not cheapest but excellent value
