Trattoria San Martino

Via Roma, 33 Gargnano


See Website

Located on an inconspicuous alleyway off the main street in Gargnano and identifiable only by a sign painted with three ducks, Trattoria San Martino is perhaps the most charming hideaway in town. Alfresco tables line the cave-like arched passageway, which leads down to the waterfront, where the best seats in the house, two lakeside tables, are located. While the hole-in-the-wall feels like a hidden gem, it is highly esteemed in the area and a favorite of visiting celebrities (Tilda Swinton, whose portrait hangs on the wall, is a fan). Meals are filled with such homey dishes as penne all’arrabbiata (served in a mini cocotte) and lemon chicken and are best finished with a stop at Ciocolat Gelateria, located just down the street.
