“Tasty meal, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

I visited while on holiday with a friend, we were staying at the Lefay resort. The restaurant is in a grand house, with stunning hill top views of Lake Garda. The reception was very welcoming when we arrived. The menu has a good selection of food choices with an extensive wine list. Starters were lovely, main course of langoustines and prawns with rice was delicious and deserts topped the whole meal off. Service was friendly. Value for money for the quality and taste of the food was very good. Would recommend this place to anyone. You can walk to it from the leafy hotel in about 25-30 mins but if you are not staying close by you will need a car to get there.

“Fabulous hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Having seen the wonderful reviews, we thought we would try the restaurant as we are staying at the nearby Lefay resort.
We were not disappointed. We visited in the afternoon, to check out the menu, and asked about taxis in case we didn't fancy the mountain road at night, Gabriele immediately offered to collect us, and drive us back, an offer we couldn't refuse!
As for the food - simply fantastic, I started with a superb steak tartare, dressed with aubergine crisps, and what appeared to be a marmalade chutney, but was fruity with a huge horseradish kick - a perfect compliment to the beef.
I followed with a fabulous spaghetti with a whole lobster, in a beautiful tomato and chilli sauce, wow!
Others had the fillet with truffles, and the fruits with ice cream desert, which was assorted beautiful fruits, hollowed out, and filled with sorbets of the fruit - lemon, strawberry, custard apple and even walnut, fabulous.
Excellent wine list, and marvellous attentive service. A great evening, and a lift home too!
If you are ever in Lake Garda, do yourself a favour, and make that trip up the mountain.

“Truly Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant 3 times during in our weekly stay, each time the food and service was first class. You felt very welcome by the owner who has managed to create a first class restaurant with a real homely atmosphere. The decor was very Italian and the views of Lake Garda second to none. Give it a go the prices are reasonable and you will not be disappointed.

“Stunning view, great food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is a real treat, buried in the hillside with an incredible view is this small boutique hotel.
It feels very family run with the service being superb.
The food was delicious, try one of the pasta dishes as a starter, I had the spaghetti with clams and it was great.
The wine selection was excellent and actually very reasonably priced. If your visiting lake Garda make this a must. Remember to book!
