Restaurant Guide - The best restaurants in Lake Garda, carefully selected by our team of reviewers, with pictures of the specialties of each restaurant.

Here you can find a list of restaurants advised by the website www.lago-di-garda.org, where you will taste typical dishes of Lake Garda.

From fish to homemade pasta until the famous tortellini, everything can be tasted with some nice regional wine, as for example the Bardolino Chiaretto "D.O.C. Classico".

In Lake Garda locality, you can find different types of restaurants: the typical Italian "trattoria", the rustic "osteria", the typical farmhouse "agriturismo", the traditional pizzeria and classical restaurants. All of these give great importance to the products’ freshness and quality and their main goal it to satisfy your palate.

All the restaurants in Lake Garda are placed in very different environments, from the lakeshore with view on the lake waters, in the village centre or even in the middle of olive groves and vineyards. Italian cookery counts on tasty and innovative dishes to make every single guest smile.

Visit the numerous Lake Garda’s restaurants; we are impatient to show you our delicate Italian specialities. Buon appetito!

Reinterpreted raw fish

The “Alla Grotta” is one of the best restaurants on Lake Garda, both for the food quality and for the imagination of the kitchen. My advice is not to order from the menu but to choose one of the specials of the day. It is advisable to book a table in advance.

Romantic dinner

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.

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. After so many years that we avoided this restaurant, we discovered that the surly man, the reason why we burked this location, is no longer there. Now the service has improved, the dishes are traditional, unfortunately the price is rather high, for the offered level.

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.

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.

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.

The furniture perhaps too modern still original. Few parking spaces. Excessive prices at the cake shop, the ice cream is not convincing.

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.

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.

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.
