Came across this resturant when walking through the small town of Gardena.
What a great find, the staff were very polite and engaging, speaking multiple languages, the location was great for people watching- and the food - well, it was great and very very reasonable.
I had a sea food platter that in the UK would cost at l sat £30, here 12 euros and cooked to perfection, my wife had tagliatelle with wild mushrooms again beautiful.

This place is a gem, and comes highly recommended.

Perhaps the biggest surprise, the house wine would really nice, perhaps a little sweet for some but at 6 euros for 1/2 a litre well worth the money.

If you are near Lake Garda and looking for a treat try this resturant

Very friendly and helpful staff. Tasty italian food (minestrone, fish...) and wine at a reasonable price.

For our last night in Panorama residence La Forca we decided to go for our last dinner here. We heard just good things and wanted to have our own experience. When we arrived we had to wait for few minutes because the place was packed and its really huge. It was a good sign. After we were seated by a very polite waiter we picked our drinks and plates. My drink Hugo was perfectly refreshing and the sea food mix plate was sooo huge that i thought i ordered by mistake a plate for two. Pizzas were very tasty and amazingly thin. Finally when I was paying i found out that my plate was just for one person and i left half of the plate and 3 other people were helping me to eat it. Awesome dinner for a bargain price.

My partner and I stayed in Tignale for four nights at the end of October, and ate here three nights - they were closed on the other night! The restaurant is operated by TGS, which also runs other businesses in the village, including the Residence Gardola where we stayed. We got a 10% discount card from TGS which we used in the restaurant, but that wasn't why we patronised the place. That was down to great food and great staff.
Our introduction to the restaurant was when we arrived too late on our first night to check in at the TGS office, which closed at 7.00pm. Knowing the restaurant was run by the same company, we went in and introduced ourselves. We were met with a blank stare and a shrug from the manager. When we asked what we should do, he said with a deadpan face, "come back at 8.00am tomorrow". Seeing our aghast expressions, he burst into a broad grin and said "I'm joking!". He then handed over our apartment key and welcome pack, and showed us to the residence. Ten minutes later, we were back at a table in the restaurant, having a great meal.
The two waiters front of house were great, always very welcoming, very prompt with service and both with a wicked sense of humour. They also impressed us with the way they dealt with an elderly male customer who always sat in the corner on his own and ate sparingly, typically just a bowl of soup, before shuffling off mid evening. They both made a fuss of him every night and spent a long time talking to him. We later learned that he had been coming to the village every year on his own for the past ten years for a four month holiday, and was actually staying in the apartment next to ours.
OK, what about the food? Well, it's typical Italian and it's very good! Pizza, pastas, salads, fish, steak, chicken, pork escalope, all the usual things, all reasonably priced, all well cooked and delicious. You can watch the chefs making the pizzas the other side of the counter from the tables, and watch them popping them into the pizza oven. A good selection of desserts too. Drinks and also reasonably priced - we had a litre of the house wine every night, at 8 Euros a litre. The restaurant has alpine décor reminiscent of a thousand skiing holidays - a lot of wood paneling and booths to hold a family of four.
I'm indebted to the guys from Apollo XI for adding to the great memories we have of our stay in Tignale and you can be sure we're already planning next year's return.

We found this little restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Me and my friend were headed towards Brescia...and suddenly we saw this restaurant. I checked on TripAdvisor and a lot of people said that this was a very nice restaurant. So I went inside to try this out, and i was amazed by the style of this restaurant...
very clean and very modern.

The dishes were elegant and also very beautiful, almost like to be a part of the elegant and beautiful restaurant.
Very nice place for who want to eat something with good quality and want also be in a quiet place like this.
