Traditional home cooking at Lake Garda

by Leon Morris
(Cape Town South Africa)

I have just finished reading Mathew Fort, English food writer`s account of his scooter journey through Italy in search of good food in his book EATING UP ITALY.

I will be in Piovere at Lake Garda in July and am looking for a list of restaurants/eateries that are traditional and serve home cooked style meals -preferrably run by a family.
Please help me with such a list if possible. We will travel by car as long as it is not too far from Piovere.

Many thanks,

Leon Morris

Hi Leon,

Thanks for your interest in traditional food. I wonder if someone out there has some great tips for you in finding somewhere around this area? If anyone can help, why not tells us all about it!

I am heading out to Garda on Monday, just stopping for lunch and was looking for somewhere too - I am going in search of this one as it sounds fabulous

Trattoria Riolet

A lovely rustic trattoria and a Meadows family favourite. Pasta and grill featuring fresh fish from the lake. The terrace has wonderful lake views.

Via Fasano Sopra 47

Home Cooking at Lake Garda
by: Anonymous

I find the small family run hotels that have restaurants to be a good bet for Italian peasant type home-cooked meals.
Two that come to mind are the Hotel San Marco in Maderno and the Hotel Europa in Desenzano.

There is a restaurant in Sopra Fasano with a magnificent view of Lake Garda that serves this kind of food, too. Although I do not recall the name, I fondly recall the food!
