Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We ordered seafood at this restaurant. The grilled sea bream together with shrimp/squid skewers are excellent - moist and tasty at the same time. Great ambience in the restaurant as well, can choose to sit near balcony or interior. Definitely propose to all as a...great dinner choiceMore

Lovely restaurant with excellent service and great food. Large portions which made it impossible to have a full four course dinner. Highly recommended.

Well, this little gem we stumbled upon one evening and we were not disappointed. Excellent service, food and setting. We went back four days later and our same server remembered our exact order (which was helpful when I couldn’t remember what wine we had!) Just...perfect!More

What a great find was Ristorante Al Gondoliere, Malcesine. Situated up a flight of stairs, the restaurant had a lovely terrace, where we were seated, overlooking the colourful square of Piazza Vittorio Emanuele. There was more seating indoors as well. We found the service attentive...and friendly and the food was fantastic. We were especially impressed that most pasta dishes were available as gluten free options and not just with one type of pasta but three. The trout was a standout dish for me and to finish a panna cotta with sharp blackcurrants was delicious. The manager was very friendly and welcoming. A bottle of limoncello was left on the table at the end of the meal to help yourself. A very lovely, memorable meal in the middle of the town. World definitely return.More

Fabulous Meal! We visited for dinner this week and had an excellent meal, our best so far this week! My husband had the lamb chops which were succulent and delicious and I had the filled pasta which was superb. Excellent presentation and service This has...to be one of the best restaurants in Malcesine by far. We will be returning soon!More

Beautifully presented and utterly delicious antipasta and pasta (meat and fish courses also available). Service was delightful with great attention to detail - and given the prices are comparable to many of the Malcesine restaurants, this restaurant really stood out. Definitely the food highlight of...our holiday!More

The food here was so good we went back for our last meal. Amazing flavours at really reasonable prices. The portion sizes were great. Definitely the best restaurant we went to. The staff are super friendly and service in general is excellent. At the end...of the meal we were left with a whole bottle of limoncello, not just a single shot like in other place. 10/10. You have to give it a try.More

Wonderful food and lovely staff! We ate here with our young son and the staff were so sweet with him. The food was very tasty and the service excellent. We can recommend the fish! The staff went ‘above and beyond’ for us, as we asked...for help to find a taxi. They were so helpful. Definitely worth a visit in Malcesine!More

We have been back here every year for 4 years as each time we have such a good meal. The pasta is always such high quality and this year was no exception, the fish was also cooked beautifully. The staff and the restaurant are always...accommodating and kind, and it’s lovely sitting on the terrace on this beautiful town.More
