My sister and I didn't eat in the restaurant but we loved relaxing there with a couple of drinks from the bar. The restaurant area was used for breakfast and as we ate then we preferred to eat elsewhere in Torbole and Riva del Garda. The menu however looked exceptional. it appeared a little expensive initially but then the menu was for someone who appreciated fine dining. If I had stayed longer I would have sampled from their menu also.

We stopped here for lunch as the wind died down like clockwork at this time waiting to fill up before resuming windsurfing in the afternoon. We were a little wary as we were the first clients in for lunch but the menu was attractive enough for us to stay. Good thing we did. The lunch was quick and delicious. In fact it was so nice we came back for dinner that night! The staff is lovely, especially the GM.

Definitely recommended.

We went to Aqua restaurant with my husband for our first anniversary dinner. We've been to several restaurants in Torbole, but we were a little bit disappointed with this one.

The place has good location close to water, but unfortunately there's a road between the restaurant and harbour so it was quite noisy there. Part of the staff was very nice, part was not very engaged and helpful, seemed like they would rather be somewhere else.

The food was quite nice, the carpaccio as entrée was delicious, seafood pasta was very nice and tiramisu as well; macchiato was average. House wine (we had rose) was not nice at all. We weren't offered a dessert, but had to ask for it after waiting quite a long time.

Overall, we were quite unimpressed, and enjoyed other places around much better, may be we had too high expectations after reading other reviews.

Dear guests,
thank you for the review and the time you have spent for it. We appreciate every feedback so that we can improve our services.
You praised our food and we will inform our Chef about that. Indeed we offer regional products and our Chef transforms ancient regional recipes in a modern context.
We are very sorry that you were disappointed regarding the location and our service. We apologize for the part of the staff which seemed not to be very committed. I remember the evening, it was a Friday and one of our waiter couldn’t come to work because he felt sick. As a result we had some problems in the service because the restaurant was very full and we couldn’t find a substitute.
We apologize again and maybe you will give us a second chance in the future, maybe on the occasion of an evening with live music or a special menu. We are organizing a week in October when we will offer mainly dishes with the local truffles, for example.
We hope to see you again,
Stefan & Fabio

I'd read the reviews on Trip Advisor and as we were staying across the road at the Geier Hotel, we decided to try out the restaurant for ourselves on our last night in Lake Garda. We couldn't have been made more welcome. To our surprise, one of the waiters brought us a complimentary glass of prosecco each. Not sure if this was just a welcome drink or an apology for having to wait a little while for menus in English. The menu was a little daunting at first, with an array of gourmet plates on offer rather than the simple plate of pasta we'd expected, but the prices looked very reasonable. After much deliberation, my partner plumped for his first taste of guinea fowl (one of the best meals he'd ever had), while I chose the tagliatelli with crayfish, mushrooms and saffron - a huge portion which tasted delicious (although beware if you don't like seafish with the shell on). As a finishing touch the owner came over personally to ask if we'd enjoyed our meals. Aqua is a beautiful, airy restaurant in a perfect spot with a stunning view across the Lake - a night to remember.
