Where fish from the sea and the lake marries the romance of the port of Castelleto

What we think

This family restaurant is located in a very pretty port of Castelletto di Brenzone, on the Verona shore of the lake. It was originally a trattoria which was frequented by sailors and fishermen and the theme of the decor gives continuity to that history.

Although specializing in fish, both from the sea and from the lake, the signature dish is lasagne. The secret recipe has been handed down through the generation and it really is fantastic. I don’t usually order lasagne in restaurants but I drive over an hour to taste this one. It is a sharing dish so you either need to make sure whoever you’re with orders it with you, unless of course you have a massive appetite.

The only problem is that all the food on the menu is fantastic so I guess I’ll just have to keep going back.

There are also daily special, usually of fresh fish…..but I suppose it’s too much to go back every day.

The service is impeccable, and the restaurants philosophy prevails. After your first visit the waiters and the owner Luca will seem like best friends, you’ll be wanting to go back just to visit them.

Check out the Menu.

Our favourite dish-Lasagna, Gnocchi di granchio (Gnocchi in crab sauce)

The Philosophy

Hospitality, kindness, protection of the territory and its traditions are a few simple words but full of meaning; how simple is that fresh warm bread every morning, as the traditional egg pasta that seasoned only with a drop of olive oil as the courteous and sincere smile that will welcome you every day.
Keeping alive all this is our small but great goal.

Don't keep us a secret, share us with your friends!
