We have been to this restaurant a few times during the last three years and have always enjoyed it. Sadly this year we had a very poor experience and won't be returning. Service was very impersonal. We were given a bread basket that only had half the bread that the table next to us had and also didn't look as... More

We were recommended by our hotel staff and by a mini market local store owner. I had a cheese and prosciutto small plate and pasta con sarde. Came very close to my favorite Sicilian dish. My husband had a beautiful primavera salad and a whole lake Garda local fish. I think they call it River salmon. The breads , vinegar... More

We had not made reservations, but we arrived early, so we could still get a table on the (later) very busy terrace on the square in front of the restaurant. That is also an advantage in case it starts raining: the terrace is completely covered. The staff was very friendly. I read in other reviews "best pizza of Bardolino"..... we... More

We tried to avoid the tourist traps - this was recommended by our hotel. Maybe we just picked bad menu choices but after an amazing meal at Il Giardino delle Esperidi and Taverna Kus this just didn't measure up. Setting was nice, service was fine, the food was just boring and didn't feel authentic. I basically had no desire to... More

A nice setting and not far from the centre, going away from the lake a bit can really decrease the price and increase the service quality. Excellent food and service.

Very attractive surroundings - tastefully decorated, tables well spaced-out, and not too noisy. The service was attentive without being pushy, food was really excellent. I think that the pasta might be made in-house, as it was particularly delicious, especially when served with a vegetable sauce. They do offer more sophisticated dishes, which looked equally good, but we ate pasta on... More

I had the grilled beefsteak which came with roast potatoes and my wife had a pasta. Food and service were very good and we returned on our last night when we both had the beefsteak. I thought the €2.50 pp cover charge a bit steep as the norm for the area seemed to be €1.50.

There is little choice in Bardolino..plenty of restaurants but the menus are all the same. However La Formica produces great quality food including homemade pasta and gnocci. It gets busy so if you get into town early book a table for later on and go for a pre dinner drink on the lakeside. By he way, in my opinion a... More
