“Open late, AMAZING gnocchi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Desperately searching for any place in Hobart that would serve me past 9pm on a Sunday night (silly me, I'm from Melbourne!) I stumbled across Maldini. Afterwards I posted on Facebook that it was the best gnocchi I've had in my life, and my view has not changed. I had a vegetarian gnocchi that had a combination of tomato, olive oil, bocconcini and basil - it was like bruschetta in a bowl. Fresh and delicious. Great location for people-watching. Travel to Hobart for this gnocchi. I'm serious.

“Most enjoyable dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Whilst recently visiting Hobart, myself and three friends had dinner at Maldini's in Salamanca Place. We found the service to be very good and the food (particularly the seafood risotto) was absolutely delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Italian food and are visiting this beautiful city.

“Good in every aspect.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The food at this restaurant was very good, and the staff was really nice and professional. The menu was a bit small, but they were able to change a meal to my liking which tasted absolutely amazing. The service was pretty decent, and I had no problem with getting a table. It would be pretty good to come at around 6:30PM. It was a bit pricey though.

“Overrated!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Overpriced and underwhelmed! Very pretentious. I got the feeling that this place is trying to be something that it is not. I also felt that the menu was pretty limited in options and the portions were on the smallish side. The only plus was the ambience and ok service.
