Torri del Benaco: L'Olimpo

When: 2003

Good for a quick lunch.

Directions: In the old town along the lungolago at the north end.

We drank a local Bianco di Custoza that was pleasant enough. Jane had the star dish - Pesce in Salsa. It is a local fish, called Trota di Lago but more of a salmon trout than a trout- pink in color and nicely oily. It was served in a green herb sauce with squares of polenta. Kay had a thin but flavorful zuppa di verdure and I had a commercial spaghetti di Vongole. Kay and I had grilled fish for our entrees, trota for Kay and Lavarello for me. The latter is a pike like lake fish. This one was a little mushy and dry, but tasty. The Trota was pretty good. Jane had a insalata Caprese with pretty good mozzarella and really good tomatoes. We had a weird vegetable plate- wonderful boiled potatoes and boiled frozen string beans!

I would go back if I was in the town and have the pesce in salsa and the grilled trota and leave it at that.
