“Food from the garden with a view from heaven”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

While the views from this terrace restaurant are spectacular, the food is the real star here. There is plenty of it, very generous serves and all highest quality. Like many Lago restaurants this is a char grill of good quality, but don't miss out on the starter plates of freshly sliced meats and vegetables...a meal in themselves. The pasta is house made and tasty - there was a fantastic risotto of porcini the two times we ate here. Salads are gathered from the garden. One dish was a stand out... stuffed zucchini flowers (ricotta and spinach flavoured with cinamon and cloves) and baked in the oven. Head up there from the road that leads to Il Vittorale follow the signs and you will reach the restaurant car park on the right.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

Mainly Italian locals which is good sign. No menu - just recited by waitress! Very much enjoyed and would recommend. Book early for table with lovely view.

“Memorable terrace view”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

This restaurant makes the most of it's wonderful setting overlooking Lake Garda and Gardone Riviera with two sheltered terraces. Fresh local produce is delightfully prepared with much cooked over embers in the open kitchen fire. The reception is friendly and the waiters humorous and helpful.

“Simply great authentic Italian”
Reviewed 5 June 2012 via mobile

Exactly what we had searched for - authentic Italian ordered simply from what the waiter described. The antipasti shared between four was good value and with good variety. The mains from the wood BBQ were the best we'd had - open grilled trout and a succulent horse steak. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic Atmosphere”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

The atmosphere and the food are brilliant. It does get busy in the summer so book in advance. We just turned up and they managed to find us a table, we weren't disappointed, great food, fabulous service, just a brilliant place to eat. A bit tricky to find but there are signs if you keep your eyes peeled.
