Food scene

Enjoying a commanding lakeside view over the rooftops of Torri del Benaco, this is a trattoria that tries hard. Look out for the specials, plus gluten-free pasta AND additional vegetarian options - if you ask. It's a bit of a sweat up the hill from Torri and the roads are narrow, so a taxi is your best bet to get there. Some people find it a bit touristy…

It's a 30-minute ferry boat ride from Torri del Benaco, and a three-minute walk to a hidden gem in Toscolano Moderno, on the other side of the lake. Go for a great dinner - not just the food but also the great ambience.
