This is a superb restaurant up a quiet side street in Sirmione. The food is absolutely fabulous - de-constructed lasagne, calf's liver to name but excellent two main courses. The chef must be inspired because I have never eaten better food in the whole of...More

We came across this restaurant today. From the outside it looked nice but that's the only positive thing I can say. They have an extremely expensive and very limited lunch menu. But what really upset us was the unfriendly, surly and unwelcomjng attitude of the...More

The pasta and wine here was the best we tasted whilst in Italy. It is more expensive than most of the other restaurants but it was worth it for the food. Service was average but fine. Definitely worthwhile making a visit whilst in Sirmione.

The restaurant was charming the staff friendly and the food excellent. We all had different main courses and each one was superb. Do not expect huge portions as it is not that type of restaurant. High quality and probably not child friendly.

Lovely food and wine. However, certainly not child friendly. I would choose another place to eat if you have a child with you.
