This is by far the best restaurant that we have visited in Bardolino. Friendly and authentic with food that is out of this world. Many previous reviewers mention that they discovered it at the end of their holiday and usually on their last night. Don’t make this mistake; make it your first visit , and as we did, you will probably make frequent visits throughout your holiday. We stayed at the Hotel Al Sole which is just across the road from the restaurant. If you are staying elsewhere, the 10 minute stroll from the centre of Bardolino will prove more than worthwhile.
The atmosphere makes you feel as though you are part of an Italian family. The restaurant is run efficiently by Cristina, Andrea and Priscilla with the kitchen staffed by the most fantastic chef and his assistant. The experience and knowledge of the staff is fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble so don’t be afraid to ask. One tip, if you decide to have a steak do not eat during the day because they are huge and the famous roasted Cockerel is equally filling. The Chef and Andrea are continually developing authentic recipies and we were amongst the first to try the refined recipe for cheese filled Tortellini with Porcini mushrooms and truffles in a truffle cream sauce. IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD, bursting with flavour - definitely one not to be missed, as was the calves’ liver dish.
The complimentary Glass of Prosecco and bowl of crostini on arrival and local biscuits and Limoncello at the end of the meal were evidence of the friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
For a taste of authentic Italian cuisine and hospitality, you really must try this restaurant!!
