Good food at very reasonable prices in the heart of Desenzano right in front of the port. Discount voucher given on payment of 1st meal taken and on repeat visits. Excellent pizzas and burgers. Very generous plates

We were dying for good hamburgers after 14 great Italian meals, but sometimes you need good old American food. The hamburgers here are terrific, great beef grilled on the bun with onions carmelized in wine giving it a great flavor even without catsup. Their catsup was an Italian brand but it was very good and their French fries were first... More

I ate here on my first day of arrival because it is near my hotel. Did not expect the food to taste good! We had a pizza and a pot of mussels and clams! We came back again for a second time. It was during dinner. It was very crowded and service was a bit slow (but totally understandable due... More

I'd say most of the restaurants in the immediate harbour area serve average food and this is no different - much friendlier staff than others we have encountered and for a Spritz and snack it is perfectly fine. We had a selection of antipasti rather than a full meal - which probably would have been received better had we not... More

Vivi cafe, but also was a Steakhouse and Pizzeria. We had two evening meals here and both were acceptable. Chicken had excellent flavour as had their "Oven" potatoes. Steak was fine. House wine not to our taste. A busy restaurant, sometimes people queuing for tables though the staff quickly cleared and reset. Would recommend for casual dining.
