This was a nice restaurant to visit, always busy. Food was very good. Polenta and mushroom starter was big enough for two. Fillet steak as very good.

We had had 12 evening meals in Bardolino,tried various other restaurants but returned here for our last 3 evenings as we enjoyed the atmosphere,staff and menu. Tables were well separated and the seats very comfortable but most important was the food quality and for me the lamb chops!

I've eaten here several times in the past 3 years, but things were very different, the menu, the wine list and the service. The food was not the quality I've come to expect. But the worse was yet to come! I barely made it back to my hotel room before the trauma of food poisoning hit. Sparing the gorey details... More

This restaurant is just by the side of the harbour, does not have a great view but the food and ambience is good. We were early for lunch so nobody at restaurant but within 30 minutes loads of people came. It was a hot day but they had two big fans blowing which was very welcome. We both had beef... More

This restaurant looks very chic (expensive) but actually it isn't. The location and appear makes it look very classy and therefore we expected bad service and expensive/little food. However, when looking at the menu the prices already surprised us and after sitting down the staff was just nice and doing a good job. We did get 2 espresso's even though... More

We had a wonderful dinner at this place, sitting outdoor close to the harbour. We both had stirloin steaks, with potaskes an tomats salad. We ordered the Meat medium and it was grilled with perfektion. We recommend this restaurant and we are looking forward to visit again.

We always have lunch in this lovely restaurant when we visit Bardolino. This time we had a fabulous pasta dish of tagliatelle with ham and peas, and a rocket and tomato salad. Sounds a bit odd but it is delicious. Lunch for four with wine is about 85 euros really good value and fresh and authentic taste. There are lots... More

Thoroughly enjoyed both lunch and dinner here. It's a large restaurant with both outdoor and indoor seating. It is just slightly off the main drag so easy to find. They have a a daily specials board which is a rarity in Bardolino so it makes a pleasant change. I had the sweetest Parma ham and melon followed by delicious lamb... More

We were staying in Bardolino, Lake Garda, where there are many Italian Restaurants. This was our second year in a row we've been there, but we had never discovered this gem of a restaurant. We were told it was where the locals eat - we were'nt able to prove this, but so what, we had wonderful food there with excellent... More
