“People have said it all before me !!!!!”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Perfect position by the lakeside in one of the few unspoilt towns on Garda.

The food was excellent, the service very good and the time passed all too quickly as we enjoyed a splendid lunch in this excellent restaurant.

Some travellers still fail to grasp the fact that a basic knowledge of Italian is an advantage even when the staff are skilled in at least two languages other than Italian. Might I suggest that an error made by the customer does not necessarily constitute an error on the restaurant's part.

This is seriously good food at a reasonable price in a totally enchanting position...enjoy it if you're lucky enough to be there on a sunny day as were myself and my partner.

“Brilliant food, wine, service and views”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

The service here is excellent; really friendly - we stopped initially for a mid morning coffee, then had lunch watching the boats come and go, forgetting to leave. We had the lake fish as recommended and it was a delight. Another day we ate dinner here - a long and happy affair, sampling the best of Lake Garda's cheese, fish, wine & grappa. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, the service is prompt and informative, the food is great and the views are something else! This was recommended in the "Rough Guide to the Lakes" and lived up to its recommendation.

“Beautiful view, decent food”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

The lakeside location of this restaurant makes it very attractive, and whilst I did not rate the food that highly, I did find it good and would go back there. I ordered two seafood dishes - mussels with clams, and also seafood pasta. This was a mistake, and perhaps others won't be foolish enough to make the same one, but the mussels with clams came in a (pleasant) tomato sauce, but then the seafood pasta arrived and it was mussels with clams in the same tomato sauce, on spaghetti. I was really disappointed and could hardly eat it after a plate full of the same previously. there is a limit to how many mussels and clams a person can eat, and whilst one or two mussels or clams on my seafood pasta would have been fine, to find it was my antipasto on pasta was very disappointing. The food was reasonably priced and the service friendly.

“Beautiful Location & Excellent Cuisine”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

I visit this restaurant every year as part of an annual trip to visit my family near Lake Garda. If you are looking for fine cuisine and excellent hospitality, visit Miralago and allow Carlo and Ilaria to recommend what's on offer that day. Their food is so incredibly good my husband takes photos of our plates and uses them as desktop pictures. Ilaria makes a range of delicious desserts herself and puts the rest of the world's desserts to shame. Once you eat here, you'll need to come back!
