The IG is located right at the shore of Lake Garda across the castle. The first thing you will notice are the clean uniforms of the waiters and there old style Italian politeness and quiet effectiveness. The food is very good - even though on a Sunday night most of the fish dishes were not available anymore. We took that... More

Waited in the sun for 30 minutes to get a table, because we love seafood. You won't beat the setting, but you will beat the food and you certainly will beat the value. Overall, disappointing, I'm afraid. We may have been unlucky - it was a busy Sunday and others seemed to like their food, but none of what I... More

This was a gorgeous setting right on the shores of Lake Garda and on the east side of Sirmione. We arrived at two in the afternoon for what we thought was going to be a lovely lunch in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately the wait of nearly an hour for our food in a near deserted restaurant spoilt the whole experience.... More

Had read some reviews suggesting the staff were rude, but we found them to be very pleasant and accommodating. The restaurant was just about filling up, so perhaps it's a different experience in the height of summer? €91.50 for 2 wasn't cheap but we didn't have any regrets about the quality of the food. We had a bottle of wine,... More

We had our pre-wedding meal here for 25 of us. The restaurant was great in allowing us to order what we wanted off the full menu. This obviously put pressure on the kitchen but they were wonderful. There was little discernable delay in bringing out the food, which was to a very good standard. There were other guests in the... More

Located adjacent to Lake Garda with great views from all tables. Good service and good food. Wife ordered gnocchi with mussels...good sauce and mussels were good as well...gnocchi's were under cooked however. I ordered the pesto with potatoes and string beans...very tasty dish. I would certainly return...beer was cold with a nice wine list.

Wonderful restaurant, the view of the lake is fantastic, the Seafood even better. We had Oysters, Octopus & Red rice with Prawns in Curry sauce for starters. Followed by mains of Mixed Fish & Grilled Squid, I can still taste all the flavours now. The staff were very friendly and attentive, very helpful on guiding us to decide what to... More

During our holiday, we had dinner here with our two children. Although there wasn't a special childrens menu, the waiter gave various choices. Our children chose the chicken with rosemary potatoes. This dish was well prepared and very tastefull. I chose gnocchi patate with mussels and my husband took the mixed seafood. Both dishes tasted absolutely great. For dessert we... More
