We went with our family and had a great night the staff where always smiling and attentive but dome of the food left a lot to be desired. Me and my wife had swordfish and you could not swallow it even after chewing and Potatoes where cold. From seeing other reviews we could have been unlucky but would not go back again which is a shame as service excellent.

A bit of a walk out of town but definitely worth the effort to get there (probably about a 20 minute walk out from the centre of Garda). Stayed in Garda for a week last year and had read a couple of TA reviews on this place. Service and food of a very high standard. From what I could gather there were lots of locals eating there while we had dinner which is always a good sign. Good set menu - don't make the mistake we did as we ordered 2 but didn't realise we were actually ordering food for 4 people! lol! Let's just say we couldn't fit in anything else, not even a nightcap!

My husband and myself found the delightful restaurant on a rainy night last Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012. We were greeted, seated and felt very good about our choice. The blonde english speaking waitress was very nice to us as we waited for our wine and appetizer a little longer than necessary, but once service started with wine, bread, oil, pand my husbands mixed grill was the best meat we had in polenta and sausage, the rest of our dinner came beautifully and we were more than happy. My beef meal and my husband's mixed grill was the best tasting meat dish we had while in Italy. The chilled limoncello and sambuca with delightful little sweet platter ended the meal and we couldn't have left happier. I dream of going back to Garda and we will definetly return if we are fortunate enough to visit there again.

We have been regular to Lake Garda over the last few years and discovered this fabulous gem of a place a few years back. The food is tremendous as is the warm welcome and hospitality. The atmosphere is great, like one huge Italian family dinner. Even though we only go back once a year the guy that runs it alwYs remembers us and gives us the best welcome. Proseco is offered to everyone on arrival as well as being directed towards bowls of olives and other lovely little bits. The menu is not extensive which is great as it leaves room for only the best home cooked food. Wine is copious and some of the best I have drunk in Italy. Bottles of limoncelo and other liquers are placed on your table at the end of the meal for you to help yourself. You can easily spend a good few hours here, eating, laughing and drinking (sensibly!!)
