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.

My family and I just returned from a holiday in Lake Garda and Venice. We asked at one of the shoe shops in town which restaurant would they recommend. We were asking for a nice restaurant which also served fish dishes. We went to The Gondoliere and were not disappointed. I started with the assorted fish salad which was excellent.... More

We really enjoyed our meals. Both the pasta dishes and desserts were excellent. Actually, our meals were at least as good as the food we had in the Michelin-starred restaurant the night before. Perhaps not as complex, but just as delicious! Prices were reasonable and we felt we got great value for the money. We were able to eat dinner... More

During the 5 months I stayed in Malcesine this summer I visited this particular restaurant numerous times. Firstly I must comment on the consistency of not only the standards of the restaurant, but also the dishes served and the staff themselves. Al Gondoliere is a fantastic representation of a true Italian styled restaurant with plenty to offer its customers. Your... More

Entry to this restaurant is up some stairs on the side of a piazza. Upstairs you are in a peaceful garden above the piazza with attentive wait staff, good table wine and very good food. We both had the homemade gnocchi and it was delicious! We were too full for dessert but received delightful chocolate brandy cups as a post... More

Visited this restaurant because of the rave reviews, which it boasts about by the entrance to the building! The food was fair but nothing to write home about. We had soup & salad starters and Prawn/squid kebabs for mains. This was ok but average. alarm bells started to ring when I noticed the cover-charge and the fact that if you... More

We have eaten in restaurants in 9 countries in recent years, and Al Gondoliere is the one we most look forward to returning to. The menu rarely changes, but the consistency of standards in presentation, seasoning and taste means it invariably satisfies. This year we tried a broader range of dishes than before, but whether it was pasta, fish or... More

This was our 3rd visit to Al Gondoliere having been recommended by a friend who works in the resort. The food has always been superb. The staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. When we came to leave, people were queuing to go in. Recommend getting there early or booking a table.

We had a lovely meal here last month, 3 courses each and a bottle of wine for around £65. Would recommend the gnocci, beautifully light and fluffy and the chilli/pernod/chocolate pudding was gorgeous. The head waiter was attentive and knowledgeable without being too pushy. Either get there early i.e. before 7.30 or book a table or you may end up... More

We had dinner here after reading reviews of the restaurants. We had smoked swordfish as a starter and lamb chops for main course and a great bottle of barbera d'asti which was great value for money. The waiter who took our orders was very unattended and had his eyes everywhere else in the restaurant organising things with the other staff.... More
