Interesting and definitely tasty, a voyage of discovery into the restaurants and gastronomy of the region: DOC and DOCG wine, excellent local extra Virgin olive oil, Truffles and artichokes and without forgetting the excellent freshwater fish. There is also a good range of events and initiatives promoting local traditions throughout the year: the Rosė exhibition in Moniga in the spring "Italia in Rosa"; the Garda Classico DOC wine festival in Polpenazze during the last week of May; the Farming and Handicraft festival in Puegnago del Garda during the first week of September; the Truffle Market at the end of November.

The predominant ingredient of Lake Garda's cuisine is certainly its fish: coregone, trout, bass and perch, pike and eel are the principal fish available. There is a huge range of dishes on offer and even enough to satisfy the most difficult of eaters: grilled coregone, pike with polenta and roasted eel and of course plenty of local Olive Oil! Sardines are also popular and there are many areas around the Lake that organise summer festivals focused just on these! The Valtenesi region offers a huge selection of restaurants, some of which specialise solely in lake fish. Garda itself offers much more cuisine than just fish with its selection of meat and game dishes, cheeses, butter and honey. Valtenesi has plenty of "farm restaurants" offering local cuisine with typical dishes of the region including fresh, homemade pasta, Italy's most famous food. And don't forget: every dish needs to be accompanied by a good bottle of local Groppello or Chiaretto wine! All restaurants in the region offer a vast selection of typical dishes and wine, local only to Lake Garda.
