Few minutes away from the Lago di Garda crowd
Arco is a village few minutes away from Riva del Garda. It have a real nice historical center, and a castle on top of a peak behind it.
We were looking for a "mom and pop's" kind of restaurant away from the tourist areas of the Lake and we decided to give Arco a try. We have been really pleased about our choice. The parking lot was big, free for 90 minutes (dont forget to set the parking disk before leaving the car) and almost empty. The village's athmosphere was pleasant and relaxing, there were a few people around.
We were lucky and were there during the montly saturday flea market that take place every third saturday of each month.
The restaurant selection wasnt too big, but at least two or three were worth the try, we picked Alla Lega and we have been happy about it.
