The mild climate and the intense light that characterise Garda Trentino, that is, its Mediterranean side, have created a cuisine with a strong personality. Even the name Garda Trentino indicates how the local cuisine is capable of alternating lake flavors with traditional mountain dishes.
Although one of the distinctive traits of the area is the olive tree, oil produced here has received the mark “D.O.P.” (Denomination of Protected Origin), there are numerous other products that characterise the traditional cuisine of Garda Trentino.
The fine wines, the lake fish, the meat and especially the “carne salada” form the basis of every dish served in small traditional “trattorias”, elegant restaurants that overlook the lake and characteristic pubs of the area.
