We stayed in Malcesine for a week in mid May and loved this restaurant so much we ate here five nights in a row. Great food (especially the seafood spaghetti) and service. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has an outdoor terrace and indoor tables with fines views over Lake Garda. It is found at the top of a flight of 20 or so steps so access for the less mobile may be a problem. We were on the first night of our stay in Malcesine and had spotted the restaurant while roaming round the town.... More

Great food, friendly and welcoming staff. Highly recommended! The terrace is spacious yet away from the hustle and bustle. The tagliatelle with funghi porcini is a must.

Good service, romantic setting, great meal! Only thing I felt was out of place was the salmon on the octopus carpaccio (otherwise really yummy!) Don't miss the desserts!

Ristorante Al Gondoliere was a gem in the heart of old-town Malcesine. We were lucky to sit in the open-air part of the restaurant with a nice breeze. The tables are dressed with white linens and elegant place settings. The hosts were busy but welcoming. The menu isn't the type of vast-everything-under-the-sun type of menu you typically find in a... More

Booked based on Tripadvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed! Enjoyed octopus carpaccio to share as a starter then the best seafood pasta I've ever had, whilst my partner enjoyed gnocchi with prawns and courgette. Very attentive and cheerful staff too - go here!

We visited this restaurant on recommendations from both our Hotel and Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. Certainly one of Malcesine's best restaurants, the menu was varied and the food excellently cooked and what is more quite reasonable. The staff were both friendly and helpful. Do not miss this restaurant but be aware you will almost certainly have to book.

This is a lovely restaurant, right in the centre of Malcesine. While it doesn't have lakeside views, it does have wonderful food and attentive staff. It can get very busy so book ahead if you can to avoid disappointment. The retractable roof over the terrace area means you can enjoy the outside air but if a thunderstorm heads your way,... More

We have just returned from our wonderful holiday in Malcesine. We intended trying many restaurants during our visit but after our first meal at this restaurant we were so impressed that we decided to not go anywhere else and ended up eating at Restaurant Al Gondoliere five times! The fish I chose that first dinner, which was the grilled trout... More
