We ate here twice during our visit to Toscolano Maderno. The pizzas are a full meal size with a wonderful selection. Perhaps the best pizza I have eaten. Our waitress (sorry don't know her name) was able to speak english and she has just the best personality. Great fast service with a smile. Have an aperitif on the terrace, then enjoy a bottle of wine with the great tasting pizzas. Highly recommend.

Thank Graeme P

What can I say, overall very good. A nice charming backstreet restaurant with very good food, service and overall value. So, some more detail....

We liked this place so much, we returned a few times during our stay in Toscolano Maderno.

Decor - nice enough, nothing fancy, if anything fairly simple and rustic

Food - One day we had pizza - quite a wide selection and overall pretty good.
Pasta - again nice enough.
Also had the special venison stew with polenta. Again very nice, but the polenta was in slices, would have preferred oozing rustic style (but see more on polenta below).
For me though, the star of the show is the 'speido' (spit roast lamb, sage with potatoes and polenta) and this is only served on Sundays, booking is recommended. They asked if we wanted potatoes or polenta, but as there were a few of us, we asked for both, and a very good decision it was. The polenta was one of the best I have had and the lamb/potatoes, very good indeed. Probably the best meal of the vacation.
House wine also pretty good.

Service - a good team working here, I liked them all. Charming and very family friendly.

Value - good value, no complaints here.

I certainly recommend a meal here.

PS - in case you were wondering 'Gatto Giallo' translates as 'Yellow Cat'

What a fab little gem - delightful staff, quick service, delicious simple food. On Sunday they offer grilled meats and polenta, spiedo, which is a must!

This is what Italian pizza should be, thin and tastefull. Many locals buying here, of course the service is Italian so a bit rude. Kids ate all, also other dishes are great!
