We visited this restaurant in the town of malcesine on recommendations from friends who had visited the area. Wow, the lovely setting and atmosphere is a definite for couples. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, we had the fillet steak with green peppercorn sauce, accompanied with boiled potatoes, in oil with parsley and mixed vegetables. Absolutely fantastic place, the... More

We ate one night during our 4 days in Malcesine but found it rather ordinary both in terms of the cuisine and location. I ordered some gnocchi which was very mushy while my wife had pasta al frutti del mare, she said the pasta was good but the seafood was mainly mussels. I also has a veal escalope which was... More

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance, a nice setting on the veranda above a small square, the food was the best we had while we were in malcesine, we ate at la voglia a few nights before but the food here just shaded it, staff were friendly & efficient, a very enjoyable night

We only stopped in the Al Gondoliere for nibbles and a drink but were blown away by the delicious food. The sardines with Alpine butter and the Parma ham just melted in the mouth - the best we have had in Italy. Would highly recommend and hope to be back one day for a full meal.

We all enjoyed our plates while eating in the patio. Both pasta and meat dishes were great, as was the service and dessert. This is the place to eat in Malcesine, were you will circle the town walking through its cobbled streets in your way in or out of Al Gondoliere. While it doesn't have a view, it is a... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant purely by chance, luck us! It is a lovely local restaurant with wonderful staff and amazing food. The panna cotta is to die for and the gnocchi were like clouds melting in your mouth. It was so good we went back a few nights later!

We arrived on a very busy Sunday evening without a booking, and they were able to accommodate us after a short wait (I would advise booking as they were very busy). The dining rooms are traditional and welcoming, and the staff are very friendly, professional and efficient. The menu is Italian, but not the normal, it's interesting, and makes you... More

If you want something a little special, try this restaurant. A nice quite location up on the terrace, with some lovely meat, fish and pasta dishes, all with a little twist.
