Great small restaurant for people who love gourmet food and great service. Take your time and eat minimum of 3 courses. Absolutely 5 stars.

We ran into this place accidentally while walking to our car. It is not in the touristic area although very close to the Cathedral (well, Arco is a tiny town in the first place). We came there before 7pm so it was completely empty obviously. The only problem we had to overcome is the lack of communication - the waitress... More

Food and service were amazing. The potato pie and the rack of lamb were both amazing. Only criticism would be that the decor wasn't all to our taste. Ultimately this isn't important when the food is so well done

Can't recommend this restaurant enough. Best meal we have had in Italy this holiday. The food is top quality, the service is very helpful and friendly. The restaurant despite being in a old building has a stair lift downstairs for my wheelchair so I was able to use the disabled toilet. Staff was quick to help us with this. All... More

Enjoying great local food prepared with love and precision. The owner can tell you where it originates, and is also open to talk about more than food alone.. Personal care and great food, sounds Italian, and this restaurant deserves a high recommendation

We arrived at 22:00 at the place but the staff gladly let us in and served amazing food. Even served us extras with no charge. Food is delicious and beautifully served. The place is a delicacy. Best place in Arco in my opinion!

I returned to this restaurant after visiting last time I was in the area and was not disappointed. The food was again excellent and not overpriced nor served in too small a portion sizes. The restaurant takes itself seriously but is not pretentious and is a relaxed environment in which to savour the taste of the best food I have... More

When my husband started reading off the online menu, I thought he was joking, it sounded just like the perfect menu: the fish dishes he was reciting to me where full of interesting combinations, sounded so refreshing and summery, that we had to check it out - and very glad we did! It was lunchtime, but they serve exactly the... More

We were attracted by the wealth of interesting seafoood items on the menu, and we were not disappointed. The cuisine is unusual and suprising, one might vaguely describe it as Mediterranean and Japanese fusion. The latter influence is evident in the uses of cured ginger and wasabi and the raw fish cutting. On the other hand raw fish is also... More

We had a fantastic diner on a beautiful summer evening. The choice between real authentic Italian dishes was great, the service friendly and good. I would go back to this restaurant next time.
