Restaurants at Lake Garda

Eating well is a must in Italy. Italy's cuisine is regional so, in the north, you eat differently than in the south, on the coast differently than in the mountains. Lake Garda is the best place to understand this variety of local cuisine because it's where the typical Mediterranean and Alpine influences meet.

Where should you eat at Lake Garda? Here we have put together a list of tips and good restaurants. Whether you are looking for a cosy pizzeria, a restaurant for an elegant evening meal or a place for a delicious lunch on the lake - this is the place for you!
