Tucked away at the end of an alley, Gattolardo is well worth seeking out. The restaurant has a pleasant, relaxed ambience. The decor is attractive & stylish, and the overall impression is that the restaurant is clean and well cared for. The service was charming...More

This stands out compared to many of the restaurants you'll find in and around the square in Desenzano. Great food and wine. As such, they are usually very busy so would highly recommend booking.

Popped in for lunch down a shaded little alley. Had the "tasting ravioli" and a pizza. Both were excellent but the ravioli needs a special mention for using different fillings to the norm. Both dishes about €10 each.

This restaurant is in the centre of Desenzano, a little hidden because it lays in an alley. Very good Italian food (lot of locals come here), friendly personal and not very expensive. We really loved it and are surprised nobody has written about it before on TripAdvisor.
