On a sunny day, with a slight haze coming off the lake, and the turquoise water looking lovely…you can see why European vacationers flock to Lago di Garda and the surrounding area.
From Sirmione’s shoreline:
Great food in the Veneto and Lombardy isn’t just found in the big cities like Venice and Milan–this little out of the way trattoria offered up an incredible lunchtime delight. When it practically swims from the lake to your plate, the best of Garda is hard to not enjoy. Fresh and perfectly prepared.
We stopped for lunch in Sirmione and had an elegant meal with fine Lugana selections to quaff with our seafood dishes. For me it was the local whitefish grilled with olive oil after this opener, a creamy tomato broth with pike ravioli. Delicious.
There’s so much more diversity in Italian food than people realize–it’s not all ragu dishes and pizza! Especially in the Veneto and Lake Region. Come check it out!
