My wife and I visited the restaurant for the third time and everything was great again. I funghi porcini, il prosciutto, le cotolette d'agnello, la tagliata, il vino, le milefoglie, il limoncello... Don't change anything! See you again...

what a super evening. Busy, atmospheric and what a choice of excellent dishes. Wonderful home made pasta, smoked veal and filet steak with rich wine sauce. Desserts to die for! Wide range of wines from reasonable price to VERY expensive. Do book in advance and be sure to go!

We had dinner with friends at this beautiful place (make sure to reserve garden seating). Food is of high quality, specials of the house are superb! Not cheap (for Italian standards) but surely worth the visit! You will not be disappointed!

We ate here on our last night in Bardolino per the tripadvisor reviews and we were so glad we did! Nice atmosphere, beautiful garden and play area for the children, and seriously great food. Our waiter, Marco, was very attentive and gracious. Best meal in Bardolino to date!

We had pre-booked Al Cardellino prior to our 4 day trip to Cinsano, for our tenth wedding anniversary celebration - based on the reviews on tripadvisor! We had told them that it was a special occasion and they had given us the best table in the house. It is a lovely location, very romantic and our waiter was fantastic. He... More

This is probably one of the best restaurant I ate ever. Has everything, what restaurant should have. Nice ambiente in the garden with olive trees and fontane, perfect service and of course the perfect meals. Everything fits together, even the music. We had veal carpaccio with foie gras, octopus, veal tagliatta, fruttini (real small fruits and nuts filled with corresponding... More

Situated just outside Bardolino in the Cisano area, on a hill. This is a beautiful family run restaurant with excellent service and food. The place is not easy to find but when we arrived at 8.30pm the place was already full. We started with Ravioli filled with ricotta and truffle oil, local smoked ham with rocket salad. Our main was... More
