Locally sourced ingredients and an incredible chef. Don't bother looking at the menu. Just ask for their gourmet selection and enjoy the sensorial journey. After dinner, take a stroll in old Nago village.

This stunning restaurant is situated in an old Austrian fortress overlooking Riva Del Garda and the surrounding towns. The excellent 5 course tasting menu is €40 per person and could not be better value for money. EVERYTHING was of the highest quality with home made pasta and fresh ingredients that would turn even the fussiest foodies head. The service is... More

We were 10 guys looking forward to our final dinner. We asked for champagne for aperitif and the waitress proposed Cristal. We clearly said that we do not plan on spending hundreds of euros per bottle. Next we ordered a local soave in 40 euro range. Then for the red wine we asked for a bottle costing 45 euro. They...

Enjoyed a gastronomic menu at this Austrian fortress on the hills overlooking Lake Garda at Nago. Notwithstanding the thick stone walls, a pleasant warm atmosphere has been created through a wooden floor, textiles and large chandeliers with authentic candle light. The many courses were served at an enjoyable rythm. They contained a nice balance of fish, meats and vegetables, all... More

Great position, looks absolutely wonderful but we only has a drink here as our hotel's food was just too good to miss. Not over expensive and it is worth the price of a drink (inexpensive) to see the old fort that contains this wonderful looking restaurant.
