Reviewed July 15, 2012

This was our first visit to Italy and our very first meal was in Al Capitel, some 50m down the road from the Al Sole hotel where we were staying. We do not speak Italian, but the head waiter Andrea spoke very good English and was very helpful with the menu. He told us a lot about the food, also the history of the building and where to visit locally. We were welcomed with a free glass of wine. The meal was very good and, after we had requested the bill, we were given some local biscuits and lots of limoncello. We were only in Bardolino for one week, but it says a lot that this was the restaurant to which we returned for our last meal. In fact, when we asked about tagliatelle which was not on the menu, some was immediately made and cooked for us. We highly recommend Al Capitel. Don’t miss it if you come to Bardolino.

This has to be one of the most relaxt chill-out resturant. The people are so friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. I went with a friend and they helped arrangs a supprise birthday cake for her after out meal. Food beautiful. Would go back there every day if I could.

Just returned from Bardolino and visited this restaurant based on previous reviews. It was very close to our hotel and we visited it twice during our weeks holiday. So different from all the restaurants in the town - the food was really very good indeed and we shall definitely visit again, if we are lucky enough to return. The chap who served us was exceptionally friendly and welcoming - all in all, it was a real treat to dine here.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the guys in MATE bar and we were so pleased they had. Whilst there are plenty of decent restaurants in Bardolino, they all seem to serve the same touristy food. This restaurant, to us, was more authentic with good authentic food, wonderful atmosphere, great service and value. It is the oldest restaurant in Bardolino and the actual building has some wonderful original featus and antiques. It is located just outside the centrer of Bardolino on the main road to Garda. All the staff are very friendly and the maitre d, Andrea takes the time to chat to the diners and talked us through the menu making recommendations etc. Whilst it may not sound too adventurous, their Minestrone soup was the best soup we have ever had and the cockerel, which was a whole small bird, had more taste than any chicken I have ever tasted before - it was explained that it was to do with they way it is marinaded etc. before cooking. There homemade Tiramasu was also superb. We ate there twice during our 7 day break and it will be the first restaurant we return to on our next visit.
