Description: We believe that using what the Nature gives us, respecting its times and ways, is the best path to invigorate the traditional cooking, especially that from Trentino. Today, like as never before, we need to go back to the past, to revalue fragrances and flavours derived from the raw materials' genuineness. The chef Luca Cattoni, thanks to his skills, creativity and the tradition, will be able to knead and create dishes like the ones of our grandmothers that bring us back to our childhood, when we saw them busy around the house fire. The fulfillment of this project started from an accurate research which allowed us to select the best farms, ranches and cellars that guarantee us ideal and perfect products for our menu. We sincerely hope our working methods to be successful to offer you something that doesn't want to be a discovery, but a rediscovery. For you and for us.

According to the reviews written on tripadvisor I waited a bit more from this restaurant. The meals were fine, but my fish was a bit unsalty so tasteless. But I loved the grilled artichokes, and the polenta as side dish. My husband ate a pasta for starter, that was fine. It is a nice trattoria in a quiet part of Riva del Garda, from the terrace you can see the old street and the olive trees.

Dishes are pretty small-medium size and prices are rather high.
The food is unique and fresh, service is good and quick.

We were invited by our wonderful witnesses from Malcesine and their choice of the restaurant to celebrate our first wedding anniversary obviously was great. Delicious specialities to die for! Perfetto e fantastico, tanti complimenti!

We picked this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's about a mile inland from the lake so a 20 minute casual walk - don't forget your sensible shoes!

We had a remarkably similar conversation to a recent poster. "English?" "No, Irish". We initially thought this was a bit odd but we quickly realised that she was simply asking if we wanted a menu in English. The host's English was nearly as bad as my Italian, but we managed to make ourselves understood. This all added to the fun and the host was always patient, pleasant and helpful.

We ordered off the specials menu having starters of fettuccine with chanterelle mushrooms, and a tagliatelle with beef. For mains we had char with smoked trout and steak with truffle shavings. The wine was good and the food was well prepared and delicious. And we got a nice complimentary grappa to finish.

The atmosphere was quite and maybe more suited to couples than larger groups.

It was a meal for a special occasion and we didn't mind the higher than average prices.
