Adventure #183: Al Pescatore (Sirmione)

Despite the many picturesque historical towns in the Veneto region, we were all getting tired of visiting another Duomo or Piazza. So on our penultimate day, we decided to skip our planned visit to Padua and headed for Sirmione on Lake Garda instead.

There we found a restaurant a little further out from the main tourist area but famous for lake fish.

Spritz - our must-have for lunch

The older one ordered spaghetti vongole which she said was absolutely fab.

The little one had penne with salmon. Even she was impressed and finished every last bite (which was not very often on this trip).

I had the grill sardines which were crispy on the outside and fresh and moist on the inside.

The trout was so good, G almost cried from joy. Actually, I think he did! Hahaha

This was certainly a great find, a hidden gem.  Well worth the track.  Restaurant is a bit old but the service is good and food, well, excellent.
