I recently visited this place during my vacation at Garda Lake.
It is located just in front of the quiet port of Manerba, on the way to San Biagio island, very nice place, sourrounded by a relaxing atmosphere.
We started with bruschetta and antipasti misti della casa. Really good beginning but nothing in comparison to the main course we took later.
Pasta Fresca del Pescatore and Tagliolini con Coregone were awesome, really big and tasting genuine.
They also have a good selection of high quality local wines, which are worthwhile to be tasted.
When the bill came we were even more happy to have spent the night there, since it was far below average.
We will be back for sure during the next trip.
Must try!

We went to eat here after being advised by the camping site owner.
It's pleasantly located in a small harbor and wedged between multiple larger restaurants catering to the tourists. Da Rino is frequented by locals or Italians and the food is therefore excellent. The menu isn't big but the dishes are very tasty. The set-up of the menu is typically Italian, with anti-pasti, primi and secundi.
The staff is very friendly and adjustments to dishes were no problem, indicating (in my opinion) that the food is cooked fresh. For secundi I had the most delicious cotelleto d'angelo.

Great location - overlooking the marina; good selection of fresh food - gigantic portions. The only negative comment concerns the staff. It may just have been that we were there on a particularly busy August night, but the service was slapdash and the welcome practically non-existent. The junior cleaner (bus boy?) was the only person to take any interest in us and our enjoyment (and he was a seasonal worker!) The woman in charge seemed far more itnerested in taking care of a large party of noisy locals inhabiting the promenade tables.

This small restaurant was recommend to us becasue we were looking for FRESH, LOCAL dishes and what a surprise. It was the best pasta and fish we had in all of Italy. Sat by the bay, watched the sun set, drank good wine and ate fantastic fresh food. There were 5 in our party and we enjoyed it so much we went back th next evening. The desserts were not great so skip it and eat more pasta... Would definitely return to this area just stop here again.

I have no other experience than eating the best Pizza Verdura ever. It is three summers ago that we were at the Lago di Garda, but I can still recall the freshness of the ingredients used.
