We were trekking near this place and we wanted just something small snacks and coffee and continue our long walk. I took some raviolis and my boyfriend took some macaroni with ham, cappucinos and thats it. Food was fine (though we were quite hungry), view was very nice and service was kind too.

The service was awful. The food was worse. And the worst part is that they probably know that the place has a good view of the lake and they don't care if the tourists never come back the next day because there will be another oblivious group of tourist there to replace them. Do yourself a favor and avoid them.

We visited this place after a recommendation from a local. However we thought the food was not good at all. Service was fine and the location is pretty. Fish was dry not even warm and it was not fresh, but smelly. The bread was not fresh, quite hard. We were amazed at how bad the food because we were told... More

Left half my food, fried fish. All tasted the same. Over cooked Bland . This restaurant is in a spectacular location but one star food.

This place offer an unique variety of fresh-water fish appetizers, many of them extremely tasty and well prepared. Good wine list and fast service. Lovely place with a view, just in front of Garda lake.

We visited this restaurant for dinner (group of 15 persons) and we have not been waiting for a long time. It was very very quickly! Staff kind, but not so happy to serve us. Meal not so excellent. We visited better tavernas and restaurants here (and also for less money). Fishes are good here.

...and we searched both refuge and a good meal at Taverna del Capitano! We had booked a night at Airbnb's delightful apartment across the little harbor and were eager to enjoy a good meal after a stroll along the waterfront. Unfortunately, the skies opened up and it poured rain the last couple hundred meters of our walk. The restaurant has... More

Having walked along specifically to try this restaurant, we turned up to a half full restaurant at 9:10pm . The front of house sent us away rudely, informing us they were closed.

Had dinner at this busy family-run lakeside establishment a few weeks ago and found it very pleasant. The service was prompt and courteous despite their business, and the dishes arrived efficiently. Lake-caught fish (the restaurant is on the tiny fishing harbour of Porto di Brezone on Lago di Garda) is amongst the significantly fishy menu but the other dishes we... More
