“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

We cannot visit Malcesine without a trip here. It is possibly the best restaurant in the town, we have yet to be disappointed. We always book to ensure a table on the terrace over looking one of the lovely piazzas. We had a starter of rocket for me and ravioli for my husband, both delicious. We both ordered steak for main course and polished them off with ease, even kept room for a pud. Homemade Panna cotta (to die for) and homemade tiramisu (mmmm) all washed down with good wine. A good menu with lots of choice for food and wine. If one thing was to stand out it's the service, warm and welcoming ensuring we won't fail to visit whenever in Malcesine.

“you need to call in”

If you stay in Malcesine, this restaurant is a must. Great food&wine&grappa, pleasant service, cleanliness. Outdoor seating on the first floor is away from the street hassle. Special thanks to Arsenico.

“What a great find”

We called in this restaurant without any pre planning but in future, if we were anywhere nearby we would book in advance as it is not to be missed.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

The steaks were so good we went back for more. Although not the cheapest, I would say the best, and so thought the rest of our friends from the wedding party who ate there during their stay. A steak was around 16 - 20 euros depending on which one you go for, the potatoes and vegetables are also ordered seperately and you pay more for them, but it is very much worth it. If you want a table outside over looking the square on the balcony I advise you book in advance as the resteraunt is very busy and those tables are in high demand.
