Nice setting (except the mosquitos), with a nice view on the garden with vegetables and grapes and the surrounding mountains.
The food is very good and the servers are friendly.
Great experience!

Maybe it was an off night but I don't believe this place lives up to the amazing reviews it's getting. Its a bit of an Italian fusion place with the potential for excellent wines, a memorable evening, a big wine list w/ recommended wines w/ each course. i sent back the red that was supposed to work with the starter. Surrounded by vineyards, we sat inside but still got bit by the mosquitoes. I had the Garda lake fish special which I found bland. A breadcrumb covering accompanied by a flavorless salsa. The carpaccio was good but we had had much better in Garda over the last week. My wife had the duck which was properly cooked but I exciting and dry. Portions small, expensive. Had much better fare all wk.

Enjoyed some great food and lovely locations in Arco, but Ostera Le Servite proved as the icing on the cake. Arrriving first amid the Vineyard and taken to your table which has a blanket of vines hanging overhead with bunches of grapes waiting to ripen as season progresses. The tables at this time of year are in the courtyard and it is truly such a wonderful and relaxing setting with the mountains on all sides and vineyard and fruit trees surrounding. Thats before you get to appreciate the food and wine.

There is a choice of fixed menu of the day or a la carte which we chose. All foods are based on local product and all courses come with suggested wines. We had a Bucatini with Lake Sardine, campanelle with Tomato for starters and then grilled Salmerino ( local river fish... amazing) and Ravioli for mains. For desert, a perfect tirimasu and a honey and almond biscuit ice cream. Each dish was a treat and we went with the chosen wines which complemented each perfectly and at a price of €3 average per glass.

Overall the best of experience complemented by great and personal service. Simply put, if you are going to visit Arco or staying close by, call by the Osteria La Servite and enjoy a wonderful meal and evening.

It's nice to see that the cook goes to the garden to harvest vegetables you just ordered.
Booking ahead is a good idea.
