Osteria del Pescatore Via Nanzello, 4 We were made to feel very welcome here and the food and wine were really good. A nice surprise at the end of the meal was the fabulous alcoholic lemon drink made at the restaurant. Well worth going to and we felt was better than the restaurants in Limone town centre. This restaurant is just off the main road that runs up the west side of Lake Garda, turn off where you see a signpost for Tremosine, then take a sharp left again and you'll find this restaurant not long after.

Gato Barracher, Limone A favourite with the locals, superb food and very wide range of wines, live music on Thursday night (late) when the bar gets very packed. Well worth a visit.
