Ristoante la TorettaRestaurants abound in Peschiera Del Garda so we walked around until we found what we thought would be a very good choice which proved to be the case.

At Ristorante La Toretta da  Alice e  Mauro there are no concessions to children with special menus but you will find a warm and friendly welcome. The lunchtime we went two businessmen shared the exterior (but enclosed) dining area with an elderly German couple and thee families with a range of children's ages from a young teenager to toddlers.

The menu is varied and the first course pasta dishes an excellent choice for children - Olivia shared hers with Harriet. We skipped the hors d'ouevres but noticed the family with teenager had something from each course which I would have struggled to do as the portions were a good size.

As we were by Lake Garda we opted for fish dishes (of which there was a choice of about ten) with grilled vegetables and some French fries. Harriet sampled most of this and was encouraged by the waitress (who, I assume, was the Alice of the name) not to worry about food going on the tablecloth or floor.

Ristorante la Toretta interiorThe deserts looked appetising and, had I had room, I'd have gone for the selection of cheeses but by that time we were full and Harriet had had enough of sitting at a table!

There are no baby changing facilities and the toilet was the old fashioned stand and squat variety that I hadn't seen in an age and would have been interesting for an older child! The whole restaurant was exceptionally clean and we could see Maura grilling the food at the rear of the interior.

We had a half carafe of the house wine which tasted like Prosecco and a bottle of sparkling water plus bread and the bill came to 52€. Not cheap but worth it!
