The food was acceptable, but overpriced. The waitresses were polite but not welcoming or friendly. The man in charge was officious. We went on a humid August evening so asked for a table inside. We immediately realised that there was no air conditioning, but were assured that it would be turned on. However, the 'air-conditioning' was non-existent. We spent our meal sweating profusely which was not pleasant. You could get a cheaper sauna somewhere else.

This elegant restaurant in the centre of Lonata has several areas of outdoor tables on terraces and extensive indoor dining. It being a very warm evening we ate outside. The service was prompt and friendly. Two of the party had deep-fried calamari starters, as dish I always consider a bit limited but they declared it the best they had ever had, extremely fresh and tasty. I had a pasta with a duck sauce again extremely well done, flavourful, nicely balanced, cooked perfectly. We had a bottle of local white wine which was very good, and went very well with the ambiance and the food. We all had pizzas as a main course, although there was a wide menu with many other Italian dishes. The pizzas were very good, tasty, thin crusted, moist, plenty of topping, possibly not the best pizzas I have ever had but well up there with the best. The only problem was that the servings were so large that a starter and main course was more than enough and we were unable to sample the sweets. Very pleasant surroundings, good food, good service, reasonably priced for what we had making a very pleasant evening. Recommended.

We had our wedding lunch here this summer. they were very helpful in advising about menu and different choices of wine etc.
we had a 4 course fish menu which was fresh, nicely cooked and perfect for our taste. We had a choice of desserts which everyone found excllent too.
There is also a large choice of good quality wines.
The service is perfect and the restaurant is located in a beautiful and quiet part of the small town of Lonato del Garda.
They also host special events in the summer evenings with dinner and jazz gigs but we never had the chance to go so far.
Highly recommended

We had to search for this place as everywhere else seemed closed on this wet, January evening. It was well worth the walk though. Both the staff and food were delightful and despite there being only four of us eating the team were very helpful and cheery. The pizzas were great and my pasta and prawn dish was lovely. Highly recommended!

I had the pleasure of eating here on my birthdayin August. The very best of 'italian' views over the fascinating rooftops of Lonato. We enjoyed an excellent 'aperitivo' of elderflower with prosecco (recommended) followed by a delicious pasta course - the seafood is great here and so was the beef - in the meantime we were entertained by the musicians playing in the grounds. I am advised by my Italian sister in law that this place has a great reputation with the locals for serving a high standard of food. We could not fault the either the food or the location.
