The atmosphere was nice and the waiter explained the menu really well. They are obviously really proud of their food and can tell you exactly where it is sourced. Unfortunately when the food then came, this when the standard dropped. The pasta was fresh and tasty but nothing special. The beef was chewy and not cooked well (half over cooked... More

Al Cardellino is a family place: run by a passionate family with lots of creativity, craft and art - and very friendly to everyone incl families. We enjoyed a charming evening . The chef explains the menu well. Home made pasta as starter ( delicious) and tagliata from the barbecue chimney as main course. The meat was ok. We had... More

The menu has lots to offer, but it would be a mistake not to have any of their pasta dishes. We were in a group of 5 and the waiter made us a "sampler" platter of the pasta's for our first course so we could try them all. I can't recommend one over any of the others as they were... More

This place is rated as the best restaurant in Bardolino, which is far from reality in our opinion. First of all the food is extravagant with to many different things on the plate and a lot of style confusion. Not typical Italien - and to sweet. Berries, melon etc with the tatar, sweet ravioli and to every dish they come... More

Exceptionally good food, brilliant service and family friendly. The setting is picturesque, quite unique and with a great play area for children. We shared a plate of superior Parma ham, with a stunning tomato side. We then ate the green pasta and beef with truffle and cheese, both of which were excellent. Grilling meats seems to be the forte. The... More

Being Italian I have been coming to Lake Garda for 20 years. This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area. The setting is nothing short of spectacular and the food even more so. The pasta is simply the best you can get and the main reason i look forward to going back to Lake Garda every year is... More

My sister was adamant we came here...and Thank god! Amazing Amazing service - traditional Italian food that has truly found its place in my heart...and stomach. very busy so advise to book instead of hoping to get a table on arrival! lovely atmosphere and incredible wine cellar. Deco makes you feel you are somewhere special.

We went this summer to this restaurant during our holidays in Bardolino. There was a wine sommelier who knew a lot from it and helped us to make the right choice. He did this not only for the wine but also in the courts. On his recommendation we ordered a platte with three pastas that you could share with two... More
