This bright orange restaurant, situated on the lakeside just outside of Malcesine old town, is lovely. It has great views of both the lake and the castle (one of the few in area to offer views of both). We walked past it the first time we saw it - put off by the colour and the building - but once...

Stopped for lunch on a walk along the lake front. Pizza was huge and delicious lasagne was piping hot and the best I've ever tasted. Gorgeous tasty bread all washed down with some local red wine... service was first class too

If you like you pizzas with a very thin base then make sure you pay a visit. Great location with tables at the lake's edge.

Other restaurants in the centre of Malcesine promise a relaxed meal with views of the lake, but fail in comparison to Lido Paina. On the lakefront just along from Hotel Castello we really enjoyed our meal and atmosphere here. Excellent service, not too expensive. Excellent Lugana to wash down the superb Spaghetti alla scoglia.

Dropped in for lunch after walking out of main part of Malcesine. The food and wine were ok, view beautiful but we felt rushed to order as the waiter told us that the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. This was probably around 1.45pm. However, even as we finished our food, he was still saying the same thing to other... More

Eat here twice, good food at decent prices and a great view too. Late afternoon they only do a limited service of pizza but lunch and dinner time has the full menu.

Just a short walk from the town center along the lake as you walk towards Riva. Well worth getting out of the hustle and bustle of the tight quartered tourist spots in town. The location is absolutely brilliant with plenty of lakeside seating and spectacular views of the lake & castle - just be sure to book at least 1... More

We ate hear our last night. It offers the best views of all the restaurants. We had the liter of Bardolina for 9 euro, a good value but not the best we had. The calamari and muscles were very good. We enjoyed our dinner here.

We had an excellent lunch here; minestrone soup and calamari all excellent beer with beer and aperol spritz. Great location on the lakeside and very professional staff. A must do. It gets really busy in the summer with the youth bathing from the adjacent beach. We tried to get in last summer but it was always full. Better in May.

Escape from the tourist hotspot. This restaurant- pizzeria. is the other side of castle(towards Riva). Fabulous views over lake and mountains without the crush. Great place for leisurely drink. The bardolino wine in a jug was excellent and very good value. We spent a very pleasant 90 minutes here. My pizza was very enjoyable but disappointing. I did. not expect... More
