We joined some friends staying in the Castello several times for lunch and drinks during out stay on Lake Garda. Overall the food was excellent. Tasty, authentic and well presented. It wasn't the cheapest place to eat but it was good value. The other major positive was the view which was superb.
The thing that detracted from our experience was the attitude of some of the staff. Overall I got the impression they would rather we weren't there. I'm not sure if this was because we were a relative large (10) relatively young (30ish) group of couples but they didn't really do much to make us feel welcome.
For example we were told not to stand up in the restaurant whilst waiting to leave. They also told some children who were amongst the group that they could not use the small park attached to the hotel as they weren't guests then looked on disapproving as the children got bored in the restaurant.
It was a shame as this is a good restaurant that could be great.
