Do you remember when we talked about the traditional cuisine of Lake Garda in another article? Well, now it's time to try it!

We recommend some restaurants close to our campsite, some reachable on foot with a walk along the lakefront, others more panoramically immersed in the green hills a few minutes by car. 

These are our favourites: those we like to go to with colleagues after a day's work, others are suitable for a family lunch, and still others perfect for a candlelit evening. 

Let's take a look at the specialities of 8 must-visit restaurants in the area around Europa Silvella campsite.

Lunch at Rino's, the master of lake fish

Reachable by a pleasant walk from the Europa Silvella campsite in about 20 minutes to Porto Torchio, the Da Rino restaurant is what we call "The place to be" for visitors to this area. 

Anyone who wants to take home an authentic souvenir of our beautiful lake should book a table for dinner at Da Rino, which has been welcoming tourists and locals since 1917 right on the edge of Porto Torchio, in the village of Manerba. 

The atmosphere is informal but elegant, the service impeccable despite the restaurant being almost always full, and the menu is a real journey through the flavours and aromas of this varied and resourceful area. 

The speciality of the Da Rino restaurant? Lake fish, in all kinds of sauces! 

We, who practically grew up at Da Rino, recommend that you try the fresh pasta with whitefish, said to be the tastiest on Lake Garda, or the grilled sardines seasoned with herbs from our hills, and let us suggest a last taste based on the fresh fish that the local fishermen offer the restaurant's chef every morning. 

All dressed with excellent extra virgin olive oil and accompanied by a glass of Chiaretto del Garda, in a relaxing atmosphere with the scent of summer.

Agriturismo 30, all the flavours of nature

Just a few steps from the lakeshore and surrounded by a 40,000 square metre park, Agriturismo 30 is a rustic and genuine setting for a dinner with friends or a lunch and afternoon with the family. 

Children can play in the olive grove among the 1,200 centuries-old trees, stroke the ponies and colour in drawings between courses. 

"Il 30" menu offers mainly meat specialities and traditional Brescian dishes, always with an eye to making the most of seasonal products from the farm, the restaurant's production heart. 

You will find Brescia-style spit, homemade pasta stuffed with meat, fresh and pickled vegetables from the garden, all seasoned with the highest quality extra virgin olive oil and accompanied by the most traditional wines of the area.

Prices are reasonable and the menu includes suggestions for children.

Antica Trattoria Miravalle: dinner with a breathtaking view

The menu at Antica Trattoria Miravalle is constantly evolving. In 2005 it began its adventure in the name of traditional flavours, with dishes reinterpreted with a creative contemporary touch and ingredients that are always in season and locally produced. 

The panoramic terrace is one of the most envied by restaurants in the area, unique in its simplicity and elegance, and offers a wonderful view over the rooftops of the small village and the Rocca di Manerba. 

We recommend you sit down for lunch at the Antica Trattoria Miravalle and try the dishes based on meat and seasonal vegetables, or enjoy a light lunch tasting the gourmet proposals of the Cocktail Bar adjacent to the restaurant. 

A walk through the village of Polpenazze after lunch will crown this experience of taste and beauty, which we recommend you enjoy with the whole family.

A family pizza at the Cts restaurant

A restaurant designed for groups and large families: the outdoor area is ideal for children to play in the park and the adjacent mini-golf course, and really pleasant for a summer dinner with friends.

We like to dine at the Cts restaurant because the pizza is perfectly cooked in its thin dough, made with alternative flours, the ingredients are always fresh, and the flavours range from classic to more creative. 

There is no shortage of fish from the lake on the menu, and there are plenty of vegetarian options: it's impossible not to find something to your taste!

The restaurant is simple and well maintained, the service informal and always very attentive to the needs of customers. 

Just a few minutes from our camping Europa Silvella, the pizzeria Cts is located in the village of San Felice, and is certainly a simple but quality choice for a carefree dinner in the company of new friends.

Manerba Brewery: all the flavour of craftsmanship

Who says you can't have dinner in a brewery? 

The Manerba Brewery, famous throughout the Garda area, was founded as a craft brewery in 1999, and is now divided into two areas: the production area, visible through the windows that separate it from the pub, and the cosy and friendly area where you can try the beers of the best malts, accompanied by simple and tasty dishes.

The pub is one of the most frequented, even out of season, by the inhabitants of the area, and we want to recommend it above all for its pleasant atmosphere and the beauty of its garden: a large tree-lined space, set up with large wooden tables to share with new friends, a stage for music evenings, and various games for children who will certainly not be bored. 

The menu is classic pub fare, with meat dishes and mixed fried food, but with a special focus on quality: try the mountain specialities, such as Speck dell'Alto Adige IGP, Trentino carne salada and bresaola typical of Valtellina, or the more traditional Italian choices such as casoncelli, a filled pasta typical of the area, arrosticini, and beer-marinated and oven-baked pork knuckle.

All accompanied by the best craft and natural beers: among the more than thirty varieties we are sure you will find your favourite.

Nasimi Beach: a barefoot snack on the beach

A great classic of the Italian summer: the beach bar is a guarantee for those who like to spend a day sunbathing and enjoying a cool cocktail in the company of new friends. 

The Nasimi Beach bar is located just a few steps away from the Europa Silvella campsite, within walking distance of the lakefront, inside the Onda Blu residence. 


The bar is open every day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., offering a service ranging from breakfast to after dinner. 

The menu includes interesting Asian flavours, such as tempura rolls and poke bowls, as well as sandwiches, focaccia, pizzas and large salads, perfect for a light lunch before heading back out into the summer sun. 

We think you should try the fish & chips from the lake with a cold craft beer - you won't regret it!

At Nasimi Beach there is no shortage of entertainment for adults and children: with music evenings, aperitifs with entertainment and a fully equipped children's area available for guests, we are sure to recommend a perfect place for the whole family.

Hanta Yo, for an original evening with friends!

Fancy a fun evening with a slightly exotic flavour? 

The restaurant-brewery Hanta Yo, in the characteristic centre of San Felice del Benaco, is the perfect place for a different, tasty and fun evening with friends. 

The name of the restaurant is inspired by the saga of the same name and is based on the imagery of American Indians, which is why the dishes on the menu are inspired by distant flavours: Mexican, Tex-Mex and Caribbean dishes, with a touch of Italian style. 

The colourful furnishings, postcards and travel souvenirs on the walls make it by far the most original in the area, and the cheerful personality of the staff promises an informal and lively atmosphere.

We recommend that you sit at the outdoor tables, as the interior can be a little chaotic in summer, and order a little bit of everything, but don't overdo it: the portions are generous and the taste is guaranteed!

Our favourite dish is undoubtedly the fajitas, but also try the chilli con carne, said to be the best in the whole of Texas!

Hanta Yo is open every night until late, but we recommend booking a few days in advance as places are limited and the place is very busy. 

The prices are very reasonable, for an evening with an original flavour!

A campsite with a restaurant overlooking the lake: ours.

Last but not least, we must certainly recommend that you spend an evening on the panoramic terrace of our restaurant Al Pontile, which is also open to those not staying on the campsite. 

Here you will find traditional Italian and lake dishes seasoned with the finest ingredients: our extra virgin olive oil, a family pride, and seasonal herbs and vegetables grown on the hills behind you. 

Our local suppliers accompany us each season with their freshest and most creative proposals, which is why Piero's cuisine is always so tasty and genuine: try his tagliolini with trout ragout, or the swordfish millefeuille accompanied by Prosecco jellies, as well as vegetarian dishes and pizzas to suit all tastes. 

At the Pontile there is no shortage of craft beers and wines from the best wineries in the area, and all dishes are also available to take away. 

For the little ones we always have an eye on them: pasta, burgers and baby pizzas, as well as colours and designs so they never get bored, even at the table. 

But that's not all! 

This year we wanted to exaggerate and we thought of everyone, even your four-legged friend: in the menu in fact you will find proposals dedicated to your dog as complete dishes, cakes and ice cream, selected with the help of a partner expert in the welfare of your pet.

If we have convinced you, you will find the restaurant Al Pontile open every day
