We had dinner at Osteria Silvestro Garda on Tuesday evening and what a lovely experience.
From the moment Doro the extremely welcoming waiter whom we heard speak 3 differ languages all with good humour and friendliness to all guests during our visit.
Silvestro is a small Osteria with a big menu serving a choice of wonderful food. We enjoyed prawns, venison, pasta, sea bass, Parma ham with smoked cheese, excellent red wine and coffee.
Excellent value for money, as the rain fell outside it was wonderful to be enjoying such good food and atmosphere.
We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco and offered limoncello on finishing courtesy of the house a nice touch.
They close on a Wednesday and I would imagine in high season it will be busy so book.
It’s a simple decorative restaurant but boy it’s an excellent dining experience.
We highly recommend and we will return when in Garda next.

The atmosphere was great - mainly full of Italian families, always a good sign. We were staying in Garda in September 2017 and it rained a lot, so we looked forward to our food! Our hotel recommended Silvestro . The first time there were no tables available- always a good sign . Next day we booked and had a truly excellent meal, with faultless service . We live in London and are used to good Italian restaurants- Silvestro was as good as we have had here. We mentioned how much we loved the biscotti with coffee and on our next visit, there was a large bag for us to take home( and not on our bill). Again, the food was excellent, fish cooked to perfection, lovely al dente vegetables , and the recommend wine ( not the most expensive on the list) was so good we have tried to get it here. So two memorable and fantastic evenings. 5 star.

On the recommendation of the Hotel Benaco, where we were staying, we crossed the road to their restaurant opposite, the Osteria Silvestre. We ate inside as it was a cool evening, and were offered a choice of tables, despite having no reservation.
By 19.30 on this Friday evening the restaurant was almost full, and even after adjusting tables they had to turn away several couples who had not booked.
The food was cooked beautifully, and the service was flawless (and included a complimentary Prosecco on arrival).
The bill was 26 euros (29 less 10% for Benaco guests) and excellent value - I enjoyed escalope a la Milanese with French fries, and my wife her lasagne and salad, plus one soft drink.
One road back from the lakeside row of similar restaurants this is a "must try" when in Garda. Enjoy it as much as we did.

- lovely ambiance with excellent cooking....complimentary prosecco on arrival, and a complimentary limoncello at the end was such a nice touch.

The inside dining room is cozy. Great menu choices and good house wine.
