Whilst staying in Manerba del Garda we found this restaurant. Not an extensive menu but there was enough for us to choose from. We both had 3 courses and all 6 six dishes were very good. We had a local wine which was recommended- also good. Very friendly and helpful chef/waiter who clearly loves his job.

We went to eat here twice during our week in Manerba del Garda. Both times we were surprised by the fine Italian food that was served and cooked by Carlos.

The portions were very small and the quality of the food was poor. The pork we ordered had a lot of fat. The price/quality ratio is also bad unfortunately. We had to pay 3 euro per person for service. We won't come back.

Great food and a nice winelist made us come back a second time to this beatiful restaurant. Very good service from a young and very ambitious Carlos. The kitchen is shared with the bottom floored Michelin stared restaurant so the high quality off the food is no surprise.

Went here in July ; should have known better after seeing how quiet and unlit it was . Won't go into a boring blow by blow of the courses but suffice it to say that even the kids were put off by the cold , poorly cooked food consisting of what tasted like a mix of cheap ingredients and some...

Il Gusto is a fabulous restaurant and is managed superbly by a wonderful lady host. The food is very tasty and the Ravioli is the best I have ever eaten. We stayed for 14 days in the area and visited this restaurant on three occasions – it was that good. The menu is well priced for a food of this... More

We picked this place since it was close to where we were staying and also raining outside! We loved this cosy restaurant! Had a lovely meal and gorgeous desserts! And of course afterwards you have to pop into Lucca and Franchesca's bar right outside for a refreshment!! 👍👍
