Wow. This place was as good as the reviews you'll be reading here. Great service, good portions for a hungry guy, outstanding presentation of the food, and well prepared. One of the better meals I've ever enjoyed in Italy. Go for it while you're in Malcesine.

We visited due to a personal recommendation from someone who had visited Malcesine. We had also seen it was a high scorer in Tripadvisor so expectations were high, but the food at Gondoliere managed to exceed them. We had such a good experience that we returned the next evening and had a similarly excellent meal on our second visit. Great... More

Starting from very friendly staff, and very cozy room, an image from this gorgeous area of Lake Garda. Situated in the heart of Malcesine, was recommended delicious wine to wash a steak perfectly cooked and very flavored meat. Starters were delicious also. They offer a little licor served in chocolate cup as digestive but we had to finish with a... More

I can't praise this restaurant highly enough. The whole experience of dining here truly made our stay in Malcesine unforgettable. The waiter helped us choose a wine that complemented our dishes. My partner had a delicious sweet and sour fish, with one of the recommended white wines. He still talks about this meal almost 1 year on! I really hope... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at al Gondoliere. The pasta dishes were our favorite. Service was friendly and efficient. Quite a few guests in the restaurant even though it was not peak season. The atmosphere in the restaurant is informal and easy going. A good place for a family dinner.

My partner and I were persuaded to visit this restaurant because of its exceptionally good reviews on Tripadvisor and we can definitely see how it has earned it's place. Although it looked quiet from the outside, when we got inside it was quite busy, despite being the end of season. The atmosphere was lovely, as was their house red! We... More

We have visited Malcesine many times during the past 25 years, and again on this occasion we dined at the Goldoliere. We know the family very well, having developed our relationship with them during our many visits, and never once have we experienced poor service or had an unacceptable meal, it has always been EXCELLENT. I would doubt if you... More

We had not visited this restaurant since our last visit to Malcesine some 7-8 years ago . We decided to go on Saturday night so just turned up and found plenty of tables empty . The menu choice was good and the pricing comparable to other restaurants in the area and it was near the end of the season here... More

Very happy with the chice we made with our toddler. The home made ghnocchi and spaghetti were just delicious. The place was almost empty, but due to the excellent rating, this made the place even more attractive to us, as we needed some calm environment. At the next opportunity we will definitely be back.

Every time we're in Malcesine we eat here at least once. If you like pasta, fresh fish or meat you should go here. Seefood pasta, prawns, fresh trout, filet steak can all be recommended! Just like the tartar as a starter or the polenta with gorgonzola or the minestrone.
