Osteria di Mezzo

Reviewed By Barry C

Dinner this evening was exceptional. We bravely chose the five course sampling menu and enjoyed every one of them. The Osteria combines traditional Italian cuisine with innovative combinations having taken care to note any foods that we might want to avoid.
The ambiance was of a traditional family restaurant. There are just nine tables so the service is personal and paced to perfection. We were guided through each dish and were happy to accept the recommended local wines to accompany the fish and meat dishes.
Fine dining Ina relaxed environment in a lively lakeside town.

We were totally looked after here. The gnocchi is outstanding as is the porcini mushroom risotto. We also had a fantastic bottle of local Lugana white wine. The service was perfect on both occasions we visited here during our week away. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who enjoys Italian food and wine. Fabulous meal for only €135 - and that includes three courses plus limoncello!! Enjoy!

Ristorante La Taverna

Piccolo ristorante caratteristico con cucina tradizionale del territorio, pesce fresco del nostro Lago di Garda, pasta fresca, prodotti stagionali di qualità , vini del territorio .

Reviewed By LTG81 - Manchester, United Kingdom

The restaurants on the lakefront have great views but are so touristic and the quality is low. Head a few meters back and you'll find la taverna, a few lovely tables outside in the shade (appreciated when it's 35 degrees). Service is really welcoming and friendly, and the inside is also nicely decorated. Menu is interesting and food high quality but reasonably priced. We had a wonderful experience here and it beats the lakeside places without a doubt. Will definitely come back.

Ristorante Pizzeria Sans Souci

Reviewed By lthomas87 - Brighton, England, United Kingdom

We only stayed in Gardone for the night and as most of our evenings start out, we turned to trip advisor. This place was suggested to us so we took a stroll down and found it quite busy. A restaurant down an alleyway off the lake front, they had some seats outside running up the alley and they found us a table for 2 out there. Being up the top away from the door, I was worried we would be missed but service was good.
We opted for pasta, a main, dessert and wine which was reasonably priced. I had some really wonderful truffle ravioli which I would really recommend. Our main of beef and fish were good and we enjoyed our sides of chips (I can only describe them as curled wedges, they were lovely!) and grilled veg.
Dessert was panna cotta and tiramsu, both were great. We would certainly recommend if you're in the area!

Osteria Antico Brolo

Reviewed By robinjn1 - oxford

Located about 10 minutes walk uphill and inland from the waterfront at Gardone, this restaurant has had to work especially hard to build up its reputation. The food was amazing!
They have a lovely courtyard with possibly 7 tables in addition to inside Seating area. We were fortunate to be able to sit in the courtyard.
The breadbasket alone almost deserves its own review. It contained at least 6 types of bread all of which were home baked and all were delicious.
The menu choices were varied enough to satisfy most food tastes. My wife loved her pea soufflé starter and my spaghetti and truffles were just as good. Our main courses deserve similar high commendation
The only reason I did not have a desert was that I had so much of the bread, I would not have managed the desert but the choices looked interesting.
The wine choice was very good and we were very satisfied with our 1/2 l carafe of house red.
The staff were all very helpful and attentive.
My wife and I have eaten at Michelin starred restaurants and feel they if ever 'Mr Michelin' comes calling, they will be awarded a star!
Easily gets 5* from me.

La Locanda del Benaco

Reviewed By coling650

This restaurant/hotel has a good position on the waterfront, but I believe they have rested on their laurels.
If in residence, you could be made a fuss of, if not, you could be ignored, until time for the bill.
Food was mediocre
Would not go back.

The QB Duepuntozero, lake view version of QB Quanto Basta. Alberto Bertani, the chef, the hostess Irene, chef and former colleague for a winning team. It still points on the quality of the ingredients and the seasonality of raw materials as well as being at zero distance are fine and cooked with professionalism. We are waiting for a romantic dinner, a business dinner or simply to enjoy a good dinner in the new location.

Reviewed By micias10 - Lake Garda, Italy

A delicious dinner with an enchanting view and great service. A restaurant with a good choice for each course. spaghettini with oysters is exceptionally tasty followed by croaker with a really unusually tasty cream of celeriac. This restaurant also offers an excellent choice of desserts and I would recommend the macaron.
A very good choice for lunch or dinner.

Reviewed By Worldtraveller075 - London

Creative cusine, well executed. Maybe lacks a few small touches to make the food outstanding. Location is beautiful. Fresh roses on the table create a very romantic atmosphere. Of particular interest are the San Zago specials listed at the back of the menu, in particular the deer is not to be missed!
