I have been at the miralago in the middle of august with some friends who have been with me on vacation. We have had a fantastic evening there, directly at the waterfront.

The Sevice was very friendly and the food was delicious (especially the salads and piadine were great!) and on top of that we ate a bowl of chocolate ice cream which tasted so purely of chocolate that it was unbelievable.

I will definitely come back to this place whenever i come near to the Lake Garda!

Met with a group of friends late afternoon and enjoyed a wonderful evening and night with a breathtaking sunset, very ambitious and friendly service and easy but very tasty food (try a plain focaccia with Italian ham and cheese and the excellent red Amarone wine and you get some of Italy´s best on your tongue). Could not resist to top the evening with an ice cream orgy and came back twice the days after for the great dark chocolate and much much more. If the place would serve a bigger choice of pasta which some of us missed a bit it would be a daily treat for any vacation to the south of Garda lake.

Ive been at Miralago in August 2011 and it was one of the best and welcoming evenings I ever had.
The food is absolutly delicious and the icecream... WOW! Never ever had better icecream before! Never! The service is great and friendly and the atmosphere while sitting at the waterfront and having dinner is awesome.

Lake Garda is a beautiful place and Torri del Benaco is one of the prettier towns on the waterfront. It was once a significant port, but nowadays owes its continuing prosperity to the hordes of tourists who land there each summer and enable the local businesses to thrive.

In any heavily touristic town, visitors always run the risk of encountering businesses that choose to sacrifice their service quality simply because the transience of their customer base allows them to do so. Very much in this mould is Miralago. The level of contempt on display here when we visited (Aug 11th) was really mind boggling and made for an extremely unpleasant experience of what is normally one of the nicest ways to spend a summer afternoon on the lake–eating gelato by the waterfront.

The young woman behind the counter on the day we chose to enter did her utmost to ensure the gelato artiginale ‘scrupulously created by Giorgio and Nicola’ tasted as bitter as her, 1) very audible and visible expressions of distaste at flavour choices, 2) complete disinterest in engaging with us as indicated by frequent heavy sighing and rolling of eyes, 3) rudely ignoring any questions related to what should be a very basic, 1 minute transaction : picking flavours -scooping ice cream –handing over money – receiving change.

I should add that I was with a local who did the talking.

So, if you like your gelato served with a big heaping of contempt, this is the place for you. If not, there are at least five other Gelateria in Torri who may or may not serve gelato better than Miralago, but who will at least serve it with a semblance of a smile and let you enjoy a nice Italian summer experience without giving you the impression you are tourist trash. Bravo Miralago.

Visited this Bar Gelateria for a quick lunch overlooking the lake shore. Excellent value for money and simple tasty food, and most of all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. And the Italian ice cream here was delicious!
