The best restaurant on the eastern shore
This is the best restaurant on the east bank, suitable for sophisticated demands. The very good service and the classy ambience provide an elegant dining experience. The chef Andrea Constantini convinces with his light and tasty cuisine. For gourmets, the tasting is advisable.
The most original lake fish
Original presentation of lake fish dishes. Good foie gras with roast quail. Excellent first courses.
The new star restaurant in Bardolino changes the chef and quality grows
We visit this restaurant again in spring, also this year the service is very friendly. The restaurant has changed the chef immediately after receiving a Michelin star. The quality has in no way gotten worse, we discover that new chef is just as good, maybe even better. The Mediterranean style cuisine convinced us already through its appetizer. The menu offers two tastings, one with fish and one with meat. Unfortunately the tables are very uncomfortably because of the irons under the table.
Restaurant situated in the Villa Cordevigo
Michelin-starred restaurant, suitable for al fresco dining in a sumptuous and romantic environment. Mediterranean cuisine with tastes of the Campania region.
Chef Riccardo Camanini offers a surprising minimalist kitchen
The "Lido 84" is one of the most popular starred restaurants of the lake. Chef Riccardo Camanini offers a surprising minimalist kitchen and the service is operated by the kitchen staff. It is quite difficult to find a free table, due to the very reasonable prices of this Michelin-starred restaurant. Perfect to moor your boat.
Since the management of the restaurant is very friendly, we not understand the choice of two new waiters, which have an almost "arrogant" way to serve and certainly not suitable for the restaurant.
Le Gemme di Artemisia è un ristorante fra i più originali sul Lago
"Le Gemme di Artemisia" is one of the most original restaurants on the lake. Dinner is available upon reservation at least 24 hours in advance. Andrea Messini, the chef, and Lara Perott, the sommelier, will serve the menu variants in the most private way you have ever experienced.
A good restaurant in Bardolino
This is definitely a good restaurant in Bardolino, which is not easy to find among the numerous touristic offers. Apart from the classic and well prepared seafood dishes, the fiorentina is to be recommended. The restaurant is also suitable for dinners with friends. Il Portichetto is located 20 m from the port of Bardolino.
Restaurant in San Zeno that deserves to be placed first
Kind service and good dishes that change with the seasons. To create its delicious dishes the restaurant makes use of local ingredients such as truffles or chestnuts. We recommend the appetizer "breakfast", dish that convinces us every time. Ample parking that is often missing at other restaurants in San Zeno.
Excellent restaurant with simple and genuine dishes directly on the lake
Excellent restaurant with simple and genuine dishes directly on the lake. Good lasagna "grandmother's recipe", appetizer buffet as well as pastas, especially with lobster. Mooring with buoys situated 5 minutes from the restaurant.
Strange behaviour of the owner
We visited this famous restaurant on the occasion of a birthday. Unfortunately our table was located in an inconvenient position on the side of the restaurant and oddly we felt a strange smell of waste. Because of the special night we asked if we could have a table in the front row. The reaction of the owner was almost offensive. Some of us wanted to go away, though we decided to stay. An excellent dinner followed... The owner realized he had overreacted and, as we were leaving, he apologized and we ended up with an interesting chat on high cuisine. After all it was a fun evening and I think we will consider this restaurant again.
Specializes in meat dishes,
The Modena family runs this restaurant, which specializes in meat dishes, see the famous "alzata", appetizer of carpaccio, burrata and proscutti, very recommended. Homemade pasta, we recommend tortelli with balsamic vinegar. Wine list linked to the Veneto region. Very kind service and very original and suggestive location.
Excellent selection of raw fish
Beautiful location on the lake with gorgeous views. Since it is located in a marina it is accessible also by boat. Good service and good selection of raw fish. The fried fish is spectacular and the presentation of the dishes is beautiful. Prices quite high, suitable for a special lunch or dinner.
Superb focacce and cakes
Original restaurant with very imaginative and tasty dishes. Excellent lobster burger and toffee mille-feuille. The bakery with cakes, pastries and very special ice cream is absolutely worth a visit. The furniture perhaps too modern still original. Few parking spaces. Excessive prices at the cake shop, the ice cream is not convincing.
Luxurious starred restaurant for special events
Luxurious starred restaurant for special events. Great service and haute cuisine dishes. The location, which is one of the most beautiful on the lake, compensates for the very high prices. Perfectly reachable by boat.
Restaurant in a perfect location on the lake
Restaurant in a perfect location on the Lake. It can be reached easily by boat, thanks to a shuttle service that takes you into the small harbour. We recommend the buffet, which offers a wide variety of dishes. The service is good, the dishes are traditional, unfortunately the price is rather high, for the level offered.
The dream at Lake Garda
The name is very promising, the location is wonderful, the dishes are much simpler this year, so the price has fallen as well. The service depends on the waiter, but is always very slow. Thanks to the many available buoys it is ideal for those arriving by boat. A shuttle boat service is also provided.
Traditional cuisine and familiar atmosphere
As appetizer the restaurant offers a fried egg with white truffle. The pumpkin ravioli with truffles as well as the “bigoli al torchio” (pasta) with hare ragout are excellent. The cod alla Vicentina is very good, the beef tenderloin with truffle is average, the “stracotto all'Amarone” (beef) is less good. Great ice cream dessert with chestnuts.
Excellent value for money
This restaurant is located right on the lake shore and offers excellent value for money. I recommend the fish menu for those who are very hungry. The fountain is a great choice for raw fish lovers. The service is very welcoming and offers expert advices. Berth for the boat on the dock in front of the restaurant.
Beautiful wine bar with few but excellent dishes
Beautiful wine bar with few but excellent dishes, which is located directly in the center. It is difficult to find a place without reservation, especially as the tables are only few. Excellent cold cuts like the parmesan truffle flan. Nice selection of sparkling wines as well as Amarone della Val Pollicella wines.
The best escargots on the lake
The restaurant with the best escargots of Lake Garda. The dishes are very different from the rest of the restaurants in the area. Outstanding proposals with tasty escargots. These are served in many different, yet always tasty ways. The gnocchi and the rice with asparagus are delicious too. The egg asparagus is rather unconvincing. Friendly service.
Legendary restaurant for excellent fish dishes
Legendary restaurant for excellent fish dishes. Fixed menu of lake fish, prepared in a very original way, with a super accurate and kind service.
Original and creative but neat cuisine
The "Alla Fassa", now run by a young couple, is located directly on the lake shore. The original and creative but neat cuisine is tasty. The interiors are not overly elegant, suitable for casual lunches and dinners. The presence of a mooring in front of the restaurant is convenient.
The surprise of the season in Garda
This is the surprise of the season in Garda. With the change of management in this hotel restaurant, you eat really well. So far it is little known and therefore still little frequented. The location is not luxury, but the view is one of the best directly on the lake and accessible from the promenade.
Homemade cuisine in a production of olive oil GardaDOP
Homemade cuisine in a production of olive oil GardaDOP. The restaurant offers homemade pasta and homemade desserts, beef, accompanied by self-produced wines and its own extra virgin olive oil GardaDOP.
Amazing location, I was lucky enough to dine on the terrace by the lake. Great food, great wine, the waiter assigned to our table was a little young and inexperienced. The maitre has kept everything under control and after all it was a great experience.
Pizzeria restaurant with live music nights
Pizzeria restaurant with live music nights. Suitable for funny evenings.
Restaurant which is situated in an Austro-Hungarian fortress
The restaurant which is situated in an Austro-Hungarian fortress of 1861 offers a classic cuisine. Characteristic ambience ideal for groups of friends or romantic candlelight dinners.
Regional Italian cuisine
Regional Italian cuisine. Open to the public only on Friday evening and Saturday, lunch and dinner on Sundays always and only upon reservation.
Good prices, average quality
The prices are good, the quality of the food is average. Suitable for a lunch or a family dinner, if you are not looking for high level dishes. I recommend the tasty grilled beef tenderloin in pepper sauce that is offered at a fair price. Good pizzas, however the fish dishes are not very tasty.
We strongly recommend avoiding this restaurant.
After the management of this restaurant changed, people already spoke badly about this place. Nevertheless, we booked a table. On our arrival the waiter show us the tabe and we sit down. After a few minutes a man (I think he's some kind of director) tells us blatantly, rude and with an aggressive tone, we should stand up immediately. After we explained that the table was assigned to us by the waiter and that the behavior seemed unfriendly to us, the director begins to insult us and scream in front of all customers. The tone was so aggressive that my wife got scared. At this point, and to the horror of everyone present, we leave while the "director" continues to shout for insults!
Restaurant Giardinetto Garda, we strongly recommend avoiding this restaurant!
