the food was great 2out of 3 visits,poor choice by us on third visit.
Service can be a bit hit and miss and this lets it down.
The guy with the guitar is good but gets annoying after two visits.

my family and i have travelled to bardolino for the last 18-19 years. this year we decided to try the taverna. it will be our first and last visit. we went for lunch all 4. 3 of us ordered antipasti and all 4 of us ordered a main course aswell. the 3 antipasti were average, nothing special but not bad either. they forgot 1 of the maincourses even though they had repeated it all correct when we ordered. when we got the last dish, the 3 of us had all finished our meals. while we were eating we ordered another softdrink, it never came eventhough we asked for it once more. we didn't receive any apology from any of they waiters, who seemed to be having an off day. it weren't busy or anything, so i don't know why the service was almost none existing. it wouldn't recommend this, since my family and i wont be going back there and there is way better restaurants nearby.

We managed to get an outside table on a very busy Friday evening. Food was superb. Having read recent reviews we were anticipating poor service but this was not the case. Towards the end of our meal a group of mucisians arrived and for the next two hours the singing and music was excellent. Not sure if this happens every night - an outstanding evening

A very popular restaurant with German visitors. Always busy. Loved the spaghetti with mussels. House wine eminently drinkable. Efficient service and well priced dishes.

We've been living near Bardolino for 4 months and have been to Da Memo 3 times, the latest being last night.

On the first occasion, about 6 weeks ago, we were really happy to have found a nice little restaurant with pretty decent food, and good service. The head waiter was very friendly and when he realised we could speak some Italian, was happy to indulge us rather than always speaking in English.

The second time was just for lunch, and again the food was good. Service was average and quite slow, but for lunch we were not particularly bothered.

Last night we went for dinner, it was busy but we were able to get a table inside. The same head waiter as before was very offhand, it seemed like he was on another planet, and he insisted on speaking English, despite the fact that our Italian is now quite a bit better than his English (which led to some confusion when ordering drinks). He also seemed to be distracted by anything in a skirt, actually leering at young women as they walked past, and at one point when he noticed there were a few ladies standing waiting for the toilet, he actually left the dining room to go and have a chat with them! To make it worse he was probably old enough to be their father!

However, the food was again very nice (bruschetta starter was soggy though, but spaghetti alla vongole and ai frutti di mare were very good). But we didn't get any bread, had to ask more than once for water, and every dish that came out was brought to us first (we were closest to the door), as the waiters had no clue who had ordered what. It just seemed there was a complete lack of organisation.

When we came to pay we told them that the service had not been very good. The response? Sarcasm and defensiveness.

I'm sure they probably thought we were just another touristy couple, but unfortunately they have lost what would have been regular customers.

The food is good though, better than a lot of the restaurants in Bardolino that serve up rubbish to tourists, so if you're not too bothered about service and want a decent meal, then by all means give it a try!
