We visited on 9th and 10th October and had fantastic meals both evenings, having visited last in 2019. The greeting was very warm and friendly from all the staff and in particular from Camila. We hope to visit again next year.

We visited here May 2017. We had to go twice so that I could have their ravioli in pistachio cream sauce. It truly is one of the best pasta dishes of my life and even now I cannot get it out if my mind. I...cannot wait to visit here again. Everything we ordered was delicious!More

A fabulous restaurant that we have visited several times over the last few years. Really good service from a family run business and the food is fabulous. Well presented and beautifully cooked. Currently the menu is slightly reduced as, like many businesses, they seek to...recover post covid and hopefully the more expansive menu will return next year. Special plea……bring back the orange and lemon mousse.More

We were exploring Malcesine trying to find a place for lunch away from some of the busy and loud areas and were lucky to notice Al Gondoliere and get a table on their lovely terrace. Great lunch, very tasty dishes, we shared several dishes and...they were very accommodating with splitting the dishes and given us extra plates. Friendly service and great atmosphere.More

An Italian restaurant as it should be and as it I would like it to be. Quality of dishes, level of service, super wine selection and the most important - very personal attitude that all our family could feel from the first greeting till the...last goodbye. Grazie mille e a presto! Dmitrii, Nastasia, Konstantin and StefanMore

We ate twice and on both occasions the food and service were fantastic. Highly recommend their Irish beef and perfectly cooked seafood. They even made up our favourite treat for dessert, vanilla ice cream with amaretto. If you're in Malcesine, eat there. Wonderful place, very...nice people.More

From the start we were greeted with great, friendly personnel, and it only got better. The starters were great, we had garpaccio and caprese di Bufala. The main courses were even better, espesially the antrecot steak with garlic and chili sauce and fish! Tiramisu and...Panna cotta were also very good. A table in the inner courtyard is a must. All in all, a very pleasant experience!More
