“Good food, great wine, good service”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

Even though this Restaurant is located right in the heart of Malcesine, it would be easy to miss due to its lack of frontage.

We found Ristorante Al Gondoliere through Trip advisor. Knowing that it had won an award, we went with high hopes. They are clearly proud of this award, as it was proudly on display where you wait to be seated!

We had 3 courses and some great local wine. Our main server (he seemed like he would be the manager) was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the wines.

All of the staff we encountered were friendly and the service was pretty slick. This made a nice change to the typically poor service we received at most of the other restaurants in Malcesine.

A special shoutout goes to the Frutti Di Mare which I had. Great portion and the seafood was excellent.

“Splendid!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We dine at this restaurant every time we are in Malcesine and it is simply wonderful. Excellent food, very kind family who takes good care of oss. We enjoyed many fantastic candle-light dinners with a nice view from the terrace over narrow streets of Malcesine and the Piazza. It is allways worth to come back to Gondoliere family!

“Best in Town”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

This was the best food in two weeks we had on Lake Garda. Beautifully served and presented in a nice balcony spot. Seek it out for very fine food and ambience.
