We booked this restaurant for our wedding in May 2016. The restaurant is quite small so was perfect for our party of 35. The gardens were pretty, private and well maintained for the walk into the venue. A great place for a pre dinner drink and the speeches. The menu was beautiful, brilliantly presented and quality ingredients. The staff were... More

We had a lunch reservation. It may be easier to find at night with lights to guide you, but it was an adventure to find during the day. Don't walk into white gated area...owner there is a bit touchy. But finding the restaurant was totally worth it. A sign would have been nice, nevertheless. We were the only diners at... More

Avoid...my partner booked a table & received email confirmation of his booking, only to find the restaurant closed on our arrival. He rang & they denied the booking @ were on holiday! I've dined in many fine restaurants & do not expect this service...especially at the prices they advertise. My advice don't bother, go to Vidoc & you'll pay a... More

My partner and I visited Vecchia Malchesine on a Monday evening, we found the restaurant to have a limited menu, I wrongly assumed that there would be more a la carte options aside from the set menu which was mainly seafood. The food was very well presented, some of the dishes were not to my taste however a lot of... More

We held our wedding reception here after marrying at the castle, food was absolutely stunning. We had a five course menu, and everything was to perfection. All our guests also commented on the quality and that they'd honestly never had a meal like it. Leandro and the team were so attentive, and had made lovely little touches for our reception... More

We came for lunch and ordered the Menu d'Acqua which was quite incredible: creative, clever, absolutely beautiful and completely delicious. We appreciated every mouthful of each dish and the amuse bouche also. The view over the lake is lovely and the restaurant stylish with unique glassware and crockery. Everything was beautiful. The service was excellent and the whole experience felt... More

We went for the classic tasting menu, it was superb, well worth the money. Each course was divine and a wonderful example of quality ingredients. Service professional but not intimidating. If you like good food and are staying in Malcesine this is a treat you cannot miss.

Beautiful view towards the lake. Nice atmosphere, despite the grandness. Very tasteful dishes, we loved it all. Both waiters were fantastic, even if spelled wine on the table cloth. We will be back

We came across Ristorante Vecchio Malcesine completely by chance while walking through the back streets of Malcesine. Luckily we were able to book a table for dinner. The view over Lake Garda is breathtaking, especially as the sun sets. The staff were faultless. It was so nice to see the Chef come out of his kitchen and oversee every aspect... More
