“Garda sunset”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

the view is to die for, so you almost do not notice the food and drink, but they are first class too. Service with a smile...

“Panorama & cuisine”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

One of the best offer of the restaurant is the panorama, it is directly on the beach.
We ate lunch there, the price is good (compared to similar restaurants), and the food is very delicious. However, if you expect big portions, you might need to ask for dessert too.

“Great location”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Arrived at the restaurant (part of the Hotel Castello) a little after 6 pm to be told by a waiter to come back at 7 pm when they started to serve food. Asked at hotel reception if we could sit and have a drink whilst we waited and was told we could wait in the lounge or sit out on the balcony area where food would be served. We were then seated by the first waiter (!) in a prime spot overlooking the lakeside. Food was very good - tasty pasta dishes and excellent steak. Good range of drinks too - but the location was everything.

“Excellent food, presentation and Service”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We stayed at The excellent hotel Castello and chose the half board option for our stay. This was a great choice as the food,presentation and service was first class, not to mention the stunning views of lake garda!

The half board option included a 5 course dinner each night and I can not remember having such good food, consistently, in a hotel.

The only suggestion I would make is that for a seven night stay eating 5 courses a night is a bit much, even though it is excellent. An option for say 3 nights half board and 4 nights bed and breakfast would be appreciated, although I understand this may not be economically viable for the hotel.

The wine list was good as well and reasonably priced.

P.S. The breakfast was great as well!

We will be back. Thank you so much for a memorable holiday. I really recommend this hotel if you like good service, great rooms, stunning views, friendly and helpful staff and excellent food

“Excellent quality and value”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

My wife and ate at Al Bacio several times during our latest visit to Lake Garda. We were staying at the excellent Hotel Castello and Al Bacio is the hotels restaurant. We usually try different restaurants in the evenings but on this occasion decided to "eat in". This was an inspired decision.
As part of the hotel package each meal was excellent value but even as a drop in the pricing is very competitive. Especially when the quality of the food is taken into account.
My wife is vegetarian but this presented absolutely no problems. Each day there were several options to choose from and actually considered the choice and quality amongst the best she has experienced anywhere.
Every day there are different and freshly home produced dishes using high quality local produce. It is a truly excellent restaurant and one that should not be missed on a visit to Malcesine. It is in a great location as well with uninterrupted views of the fabulous Lake Garda.
