“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

Malcesine has quite a few restaurants, but "Al Gondoliere" has to be one of the best restaurants around. The noodles are hand-made, and the selection is different from many of the other places nearby. Making a reservation is probably a good idea, because the restaurant is well known and gets full early in the evening, even in off-season.

Noodles with porch ini or the Ravioli with Scamorza and pistacchio sauce are very nice as prime piatti, and for the secondi piatti you can't go wrong with Saltimbocca or beef filet.

For something different as dessert, try the "Mousse au Menthe" or the wonderful chocolate mousse on banana. Should we ever return to Malcesine, we'll go there first. Service was very nice and wonderful as well.

“Good Food and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

This was one of the better restaurants we visited during our stay in Malcesine, where the food is above average and the service excellent. No lake view, but definitely worth a visit.

“Continued excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

It was a great pleasure and a relief to return to Al Gondoliere after an absence of a year to find that the Di Bonomi family have maintained the same standards of excellence that we so enjoyed in previous years. From starters through to desserts we can honestly say that we thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. Each dish was clearly prepared with care, and the seasoning spot on. Our preferences were for pasta and seafood dishes, but the enjoyment of other diners nearby eating meat dishes was very evident. Arsenio, Valentina and their family are multi-lingual, ensuring that customers needs are clearly understood. The service is very professional, friendly, calm, and unrushed. At Al Gondoliere there is no doubt about the care and pride the owners take in their presentation. We're eagerly anticipating our return next year.

We found this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor. Everything about it was great from the food to the staff to the setting. It really is a place you must eat while in Malcesine.
