Due to being in Torri during the off season, many restaurants were closed. This restaurant however was a gem and offered the best meals we had in Torri. The Pizza was crispy and light, and the Bruscetta was was of a high standard to make everyones mouth water looking at it. I'd recommend going to this location over the others... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Torri. This place is run by a hard working couple with the wife serving all the tables. She was a great hostess speaking Italian, German and English. The food was delicious. Fantastic pasta and risotto and the tiramisu was yummy. Highly recommend

The food was excellent. Mostly pasta and pizza but also the best Melon and Parma Ham which the lady split in to 2 for us. Ate here 4 times out of our 7 day stay. The owner was very pleasant. We reserved a table each night as it was so popular.

Found this place tucked away during an evening downpour - weren't disappointed. Started with pizza bread & rosemary and bruschetta - bruschetta particularly good, Good solid pizza and pasta - we all went for the smaller portions of pasta which were more than adequate. Gnocchi with truffle was the standout, excellent texture and lovely flavour. Pizzas were good too, particularly... More

Had a 'cheap evening' here with just pizza and beer. Food was try good - nice pizza base (not too thick or soft) and the woman serving was friendly and efficient. Nice quiet atmosphere - would go again.

This was not only, by far, the best meal we had in Torri del Benaco, but it was the best meal we had during our 2 week trip in northern Italy. Cool and comfortable location just off the waterfront. Worth finding.

It looks as if you are walking up a narrow side street, with outside tables but it is actually what leads directly into the restaurant. Those tables have cleverly designed, large "half" umbrellas that are secured to the walls of the lane to ensure shade and we sat at one of those. The lady was very kindly. The food was... More
