“So Fresh”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This was the second time in two years that my wife and I ate at Gondoliere. The staff for the most part have not changed and you can tell that they really know the menu well and are attentive w/o being overbearing.

The food at Gondoliere is first rate and its great that you can share starters. My wife and I shared the fish soup - packed with loads of mussels, langoustines, clams and shrimp - followed by Gnocchi with Zucchini & Shrimp + Gnocchi Marinara. All 3 dished were excellent and the Gnocchi was especially light and fresh.

After 6 days in Malcesine, we found this to be our favourite and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special occasion restaurant in Malcesine!

“Great food and great service”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We had our evening meal here on holiday in Malcesine as a family of four.
The staff were very friendly and the meal was excellent. Between us we had the lamb, pork and steak; all of which were beautiful. The desserts were also delicious and there were some interesting choices on offer, such as pernod and chilli semifreddo. The cheeseboard deserves a particular mention, with a fantastic selection of cheeses and relishes, and the house red wine is of very good standard and value.
One small tip would be to order a side dish, as most of the meat dishes come as just that. Other than that, top marks for presentation of food and attentive service. The restaurant itself is also very pretty, set in part of Malcesine's ancient town centre. Would definitely recommend.

“Amazing italian meals”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

We had lunch there - some seafood and fish. Both of them were very fresh and tasty.. Service directly from owners is just perfect.. We had to return back there for dinner again. During almost week in Malcesine and testing many restaurants, this was the choice #1.

“BEST Gnocchi ever!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We ate here last Friday and the meal was amazing. A little bit more money than some restaurants but well worth it. Excellent host and ambience. Best ever gnocchi with bacon, delicious steak and fish. I definitely hope to return

“Incredible food and service”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The Al Gondoliere continues to serve excellent freshly cooked food of the highest quality, and the service is always personal and efficient. Arsenio and Valentina will ensure that you have a memorable time at the restaurant, they are really passionate about their food, and customer satisfaction is very important to them.
We have dined here too many times to count, and we have never been disappointed. The menu is varied, everything on the menu tastes wonderful, and the presentation is superb.
If you enjoy good food you simply must visit this restaurant.
