We came here on a Sunday without a reservation and had no problem getting a table. Staff was very nice and accommodating of our young cranky son, even bringing a scoop of ice cream as his "starter." View is lovely, and food is quite good (though not particularly memorable). A safe choice.

Nice restaurant with a great view. There are many tables with a direct view on the lake. Friendly staff and large selection of pizza. Even though the restaurant was crowded the food came really fast and it was good. Also it was not expensive.

This restaurant is in the heart of S. Zeno di Montagna and has gorgeous views over Lake Garda. The food from our visit was very good - from a fresh starter of tomatoes and mozzarella to a simple aubergine pizza and an elegant sea bass and potato dish. We also had a bottle of Valpolicella, which was really excellent. The... More

Not a big choice of dishes, second dishes a bit too expensive (13-16 eur + side dishes to be paid separately). Staff is not particularly nice, and not dog-friendly. The view is really beautiful.

This restaurant is a definite must do! My vongole and my partners veal escalope were the best dishes we've had while in Garda We visited the one on Garda lake front but I believe these are a chain. Best dish of the trip!

WE ended up here after our disastrous attempted excursion to the Agriturismo Scriciole. We received prompt, efficient service and although the menu wasn't particularly inspirational it was fine for a pleasant lunch with fine views over the lake.

Up in the hills above Torre Del Benaco, this is a lovely place to visit either during the day for lunch or to watch the sun set in the evenings. In the main the staff are friendly and courteous and the food is always of good quality. It is ideal even for a quick coffee, if you are passing through... More

Take a drive or a long walk up to Giardinetto and experience a magnificent view over the lake from the large terrace. As well as serving a wide range of pizzas, there is a traditional menu of primi and secondi dishes. Those we have had have been excellent across a number of visits. Service is welcoming and efficient. Also recommended... More

Modern restaurant run very efficiently by friendly staff with good English and German kitted out in t-shirts and shorts. Minimal waiting for any courses. Venison, bream, and pizzas all very good but not outstanding. Good wine list, heavily focussed on the northern regions of Italy (only one Tuscan option!). The views however are where this place excels, boasting a near... More

After looking for a place to have diner other than our hotel Bellavista we came to this restaurtant. Only one table left, sol that's a good and trustfull start... Pasta & pizza were one of the best during our holidays in Austria and Italy.

Thank Wijtze
