Description: 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.

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 and efficient; the food we ate was very well cooked and nicely presented.
The menu offers a variety of interesting choices, moving away from simply pasta or pizza. For example you could try rabbit with polenta or grilled squid with aubergine sauce. I ordered grilled lamb cutlets, which were delicious but when our waitress brought them to our table she said that chef felt they were smaller than usual, so he was cooking me some more. Sure enough, minutes later two more lamb cutlets arrived. A nice touch, as I’d probably have been happy with the original five and had no way of knowing if they were smaller than usual! My dessert was a ginger pannacotta with pineapple sauce. Not too sweet, the taste of ginger was subtle not overpowering and it was a lovely way to end the evening.
If you’re looking for very good food in pleasant surroundings with excellent service, and reasonably priced, I heartily recommend Gattolardo.

Rather hidden away but worth searching out . We ate there 3 times . Whilst a large selection of excellent pizza we recommend the seafood pasta and sea bass and fritto misto and other non pizza dishes . House wine excellent and extensive selection of grappa riserva [ notably the 5 year barolo] . Sensibly priced given the location , recommend reservation for opening at 7 pm especially on Sundays when seems to be a favourite of locals .

We ate here 3 times during a 10 day stay in Desenzano - great food each time. Do try the fish and chips - they use pike which we just don't eat in the UK and it was delicious. The chips also are not the usual mass produced frozen version - nice home made ones. The steak I had one night was perfectly cooked as was the chicken and the pasta bolognaise starter is excellent.
