We sat at a table under an arch that was right on the water's edge. The view of the lake to one side and the town and mountains to the other was breathtaking. We had cafe americanos, chocolate gelato and tiramasu. All was good! It seems from other reviews that this is not reliably good for pizza or main course, but for the view alone and an afternoon snack and rest, it's perfect.

There is a decking area, actually over the lake. Ate here twice, went back for a meal the day after a friend's wedding we enjoyed it so much.
The ducks and swans swim over and you can feed them if you have a table close to the water's edge. Be mindful of dropping cutlery (or your wallet!) into the lake through the decking though! But there other seats available if you don't want to be 'on' the water.

Great menu choices, good portion sizes, and the restaurant is much bigger than you first think.

Very busy restaurant, but the staff were efficient and friendly. Restaurant is right by the harbour.

This restaurant is located in a wonderful spot right on the lake.

The food though is absolutely terrible. The service the same. I had an Antipasto misto del Lago di Garda, the small friend fish were mushy and so vinegary that really even people who have no taste buds, could have felt it was disgusting. When I told it very nicely to the waiter (not italian) he looked at me as if I was an imbecile and said it was meant to be like that.. I really doubt it. The second was bigoli pasta with sardines and nuts. It was dark for sure, but not so dark to see that there were zero sardines. Instead there were salted anchovies. The pasta was super salty and well... Not perfect.

My friend had tortellini, that clearly tasted like frozen tortellini. His pepper steak was so peppery, that you had to cough after every bite.

I studied Italian gastronomy, and trust me, this is a disgrace to Italian cuisine.

Superb location. Ate twice. Both at waters edge. First had a simple pizza. Served super quick and tasted fine. 8euros plus drinks. Can't fault that. Second time we wanted to stretch the meal out. Ordered 2 courses and menu said fish would take 30 mins. Fish arrived about 45 minutes after we finished our first course by which time we had drank our bottle of wine. They brought out another bottle free of charge and could not be more apologetic for the delay. Food was great. Had we been in a rush may have been a problem but actually wasn't. Good value if a little touristy.
Unfortunately smokers present in the outside area but every outside restaurant is the same.

Ate here and was not disappointed. We had salmon and also a tomato mozzarella caprese for starters along with pizzas for dinner and the food was lovely, we didn't have any issues. We had a table right by the water front, push your table a few inches and it would be in the lake - just awesome. The service was good, waiters very friendly. Extremely busy restaurant but maybe its the location that gets the trade but then again we didn't have any problems and certainly would have gone back again.
