“Try this place and you will return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend (we were actually told this was the less interesting of the two places. If that's true, I can hardly wait to try the other place!!!) A little out of the way in a lovely location. We didn't have reservations for a Sunday lunch (there were six of us) but the owner acommodated us in no time at all. Warm wood fired focaccia was brought to the table immediately and the food didn't take long at all. Dishes were suggested and portions were modified for my small son. We ordered a cheese board as well as a classic tagliere (cold cuts) to start with and then moved on to either a pasta dish (all fresh and excellent: generous portions) I had the carpaccio: thinly sliced and just delicious. Desserts are made in house and they kindly offered us the coffee on the house. A wonderful lunch in a wonderful location. I would defnitely return.

We already ate at another restaurant, but couldn't help stopping there for a quick cup of coffee
because the location is amazing,and they have a great view, we had good coffee at a great price.

“Seafood Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

La Forra in Tremosine has fast become my favorite restaurant for fish on Lago di Garda: To get there, you almost have to deserve the opportunity by driving through some of the narrowest roads along the cascades that at night are beautifully lighted to give one the sense of being in a Harry Potter movie with a little imagination! You can hear the waterfalls, and you can see the rocks through which tunnels have been dug to allow cars to cross the cascades. At the end of this visual feast stands La Forra, a typically decorated restaurant of the Garda mountains with a big bar, wood beams and incandescent lighting. But if you are here in the summer, they have the summer garden across the street where you can enjoy your dinner, sitting in the middle of all this glorious natural beauty.
The wait staff is very nice. They make you feel as if you are a guest, having dinner at their home. They first bring you their special very thin and fresh out of the oven hot focaccia which reminds me a little of some of the best “pide” I had in Istanbul during Ramada: savory, light and addictive. We started with the seafood appetizer, and not knowing the sizes of the portions, ordered two for the three of us. Six people could easily have shared the two huge plates, filled with mussels, clams, calamari, prawns and fish in a light tomato sauce laced with garlic, into which we dipped our focaccia to travel to heaven!
Our main course was a grillada di pesche (grilled mixed seafood) for three: huge prawns, salmon, fillets of orata, whole small calamari, corregone (indigenous to Lago di Garda) and some other pieces of seafood all grilled to perfection, deliciously seasoned and served with huge portions of rosemary baked potatoes and grilled fennel. I am not sure how the three of us got through all the focaccia and the appetizers and the grilled fish, but when they told us they would bring us after dinner drinks, of sorbetto and amare on the house, not only did they have our hearts but we knew we would be sharing this find with all gourmands everywhere who enjoy food at its simplest and best.
