“Hidden gem in Moniga...great menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We wenr on a Sunday evening at 7.30 after an aperitif in the Castle down the street, which had a good lake view.
Antica is hidden down a lane off the main st, in a courtyard. Nice shaded and secluded, it was full with families and then the crowd changed to an older crowd. Lots of chat and some laughter. The staff are attentive and not rushed, all effortless and with smiles and a relaxed approach.

Our 3 pasta starters were arriabiata, crab with salmon and lobster, all excellent. 3 from 3

For mains, we had a steak in pepper sauce, it arrived covered in a creamy sauce which his the steak, ordered well done, and was perfectly cooked and moist. For fish we chose lake trout ( filleted but with some bones ) which had a good flavour, breaded perch which was bland and an extra fish dish, tuna steak in sesame seeds. This came with caramelised onions, a winner and most unusual. 3 from 4.

Would recommend it, far better menu and ambience than Saggitarius where we ate last night.

“Well worth discovering even if it was because of Tripadvisor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We have been to this restaurant during our stay in the area and it was well worth the discovery. As others have said, this gem of a place is hidden (there is a sign on the wall opposite the garage, otherwise you would miss it).

As others have pointed out the fac that not all of the menu has the english equivalent will spoil your visit because to be frank we've NEVER seen as many different pizza's on offer. So there maybe a combination that you would like to try but you'll probably miss it :(

“Excellent italian food for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

In our stay in Moniga del Garda we looked up the restaurants on tripadvisor and found Antica Corte. You wouldnt have found the restaurant otherwise, since its on a little street somewhere in moniga.

The food was very good, me ad my friends orderd pizza and gnocchi.

We were lucky a table was available.

At one point it was so busy people were waiting for tables to become available

“Lovely, friendly place with tasty variety of food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We went here on the first and last night we stayed in the area.

Really great selection of food. However the menu could do with a enitre English translation as we received a pizza with a topping that one of us couldn't eat....would have been helpfull to know before hand
