Above the hustle and bustle of one of Malcesine’s main piazzas, you will find this terrace restaurant. Take the main road from the bus station roundabout leading down into the town and turn right – Al Gondoliere is just next to hotel Lago di Garda.

More of a fine dining experience Al Gondoliere books out fast. This is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Malcesine. Try the ravioli with smoked cheese and pistachio sauce – it’s delicious!
