The food is fresh, good and well served. The staff is efficient, nice and pro! Definitely a nice restaurant... read more

We went to this restaurant twice during our week in Malcesine following Trip Advisor recommendations and were not disappointed. Delightful ambience with excellent staff. I liked the fact that you were never rushed and were given time between courses to enjoy the experience. House wine was good value and extremely drinkable. Now the food. Great choice and keen prices.

We - my wife, sons, youngest son's girlfriend & son-in-law - had lunch here and it was excellent. The waiters were very helpful and friendly. There was a good choice for lunch. We had a main & dessert each and we were all very pleased. My ravioli was outstanding as was the tiramisu. It wasn't expensive and is in a... More

The food and the service at this lovely restaurant was outstanding. I went with the owners recommendation of pasta with pistachio and was very pleased. I tried some of my friends' meal choices as well and they too were terrific especially the seafood dish. The prices are reasonable and the people friendly. It's evident they care about customers and are... More

Was part of a 30 group, pre wedding meal here. It was exceptional, service fantastic, food was excellent, enjoyed in clean pleasant surroundings. Staff are truly interested and very proud of what they do. Highly recommended, visit when in town for sure.

We had good dishes - and not so good. For instance, spaghetti marinara was fantastic but salty. The seafood mixed grill was just octopus and small shrimps grilled dry. Seafood sallad was fresh. The grilled dorade was perfect. Expectations was high due to good rating on tripadvisor, so if visiting with a more adjustef level, it will be quite allright.

Recommended by our hotel as I'm gluten intolerant. Excellent understanding of food intolerance. They provided gluten free crackers instead of bread and told me that most dishes could be made gluten free. We went twice as the food and experience was excellent. A little more expensive than some of the other restaurants but worth it.

Beautiful food in a lovely atmosphere. You can feel the owners' passion for good food. The zuppa di pesce is amazing - not the classic recipe but the chef's own version. Excellent wines too. Was very busy the night we went and service was slow, but the owner told us he was short staffed - seemed like a one-off. No... More

Hi Chris, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed so much our zuppa di pesce!
