“Would definitely go back”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The restaurant seemed to be a small 'rustic and local' restaurant, probably not visited by many Brits, but the owner's English was very good (our Italian is rather lacking!) and she was very friendly. The food seemed good straight forward Italian food, we had a bruschetta (which was huge!), a pasta dish and lasagne. It was good value, in pleasant surroundings - I would go there again.

“Happiness and Quality”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

That's a place we never miss once around Torbole. I love the restaurant and it's amazing the way they cook spaghetti with Aglio and Olio. Try it!!! As Italian and from the south I tell you, it's a 5 stars - Andrea (the owner) is a smiling and enjoyable person. It's not unusual She seat with you drinking wine and telling you stories. I love the restaurant and the people.

“Good food served by staff happy that you are there”
Reviewed October 24, 2010

The restaurant is tucked away in a narrow street, parallel to the main road, based in an old building, with some outdoor seating. It was usually near full when we visited in September - went twice in our week's stay. The service could not be friendlier - the boss, Andrea, is bubbly and enthusiastic, and takes a lot of pride in the restaurant and its food.
It is good mid-budget dining. Generous portions for the price (if you have a small appetite, may wish to order course by course), depending on the meal. My own favourite was the carpaccio. No Pizzas - specialize in a variety of bruschette.
There is a potential language barrier - I am an English mono-phone, and the staff there are mainly Italian and German speaking with middling English, so there is the potential for errors in ordering (minor and straight away dealt with with a smile).
We left happy.
