I had the bass cooked on the BBQ which was delicious. It is simple but tasty food with a fabulous atmosphere. The place was buzzing with locals which in my opinion is a good sign of a great place to visit. Enjoy

Welcome to El Patio !If you are looking for the most genuine food in a relaxing atmosphere with friendly service, you might have found the right place. In the past 45 years, thousands of foreigners have experienced the most typical dishes in the most spanish-style of restaurants in Lake Garda.The Patio opened in 1967 and was the very first Pizzeria on Lake Garda and - still today - generations of english, german, french and dutch clients still choose The Patio for their holiday meals because of his retro-spanish location, the garden of lemon-trees, the terraces and its unique relax-atmosphere. Our wood-oven pizzas, the different kinds of homemade pastas and ravioli and of course the famous PAELLA VALENCIANA have made EL PATIO one of the most appreciated meeting points of the area. Come and enjoy our fun environment : for an easy going meal with friends, for a romantic evening under the stars sitting on one of our terraces or just for a late night drink....WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU SOON !
