Stayed in Sirmione for 4 nights and ended up eating here for 3 of them because it was so good. Friendly staff, great service and delicious food from a wide-ranging and fairly priced menu. Highly recommended.

I was very,very impressed with this restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The service was highly professional, the staff was very efficient. We was offered complimentary drinks, snacks and desserts, which was a lovely unexpected touch. I would highly recommend this restaurant, the dining experience was the best I have received on my visit to the Lake.

We enjoyed an excellent meal, with good local wine and expert, friendly service. It was a charming touch to have a complimentary glass of prosecco to start and of limoncello to finish. Our request for tap water was politely declined, the proprietor explaining that in Italy only bottled water was served. We were unconvinced, since none of the other restaurants... More
