Most restaurants in Lake Garda will be welcoming to families and babies and toddlers.

Italians love kids and unless the restaurant is very upmarket you should not experience any problems. The area is very tourist orientated and much of this tourism is focused on families. Many hotels and restaurants will have high cahirs and some will have baby changing facilities however it is always safer to bring a fold away high chair as some establishments in Italy offer high chairs with just a bar across the top which are more suited to older toddlers.

The most typical product is the extra virgin olive oil, renowned for its lightness and delicacy, which goes well with freshwater fish from the lake and traditional country dishes of meat and polenta. Citrus fruits are a central ingredient of many of the dishes of the region. The Alto Garda area is home to the unique lemon houses, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

For parents, an  ideal accompaniment to each dish is the excellent wine produced in the Garda vineyards: Nosiola, Merlot, Cabernet and Vino Santo in the northern areas; Classico Groppello della Valtenesi in the southern vineyards of Bardolino and Lugana.
