Very nice location. Typical Italian style. Simple but honest. The food was excellent, the waiters kind and the atmosphere speaks for it self. Starter, main dish and dessert was better than expected. We came 3 times and will come back soon.

We've been here several times with different friends because of the great food and spectacular views that include a castle. The drive to the restaurant is breathtaking then you can sit inside or outside. Great Caprese and Pizza. Great wait staff.

Set on the lake front, this restaurant has a large typically Italian menu. It does get very busy at peak times but you can reserve a table if you like it. A lot of staff speak English and German as well as Italian and they are very friendly and chatty if you want them to be. Food was delicious, the... More

The strengths of this place definitely lie in its location right by the lake and also in the fact that it serves excellent pizza as described in many reviews. Whilst the food was good, and the service was efficient, it essentially lacked a feeling of care and hospitality. A nice place but lacking that something special..

Went here last night and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant is lovely with really nice waiters. The pasta and pizza is just delicious and the tiramasu is also really good. Would definitely return. Great value too- 15 euros for a bottle of prosecco!

There was good food at this restaurant right on the edge of the lake. It was often very busy but worth the visit.

Disappointed with our experience following great reviews on trip advisor. Setting is beautiful, service was ok considering how busy it was, food was just average. The crab gnocchi was very bland, and seafood spaghetti just 'ok'. There was nothing wrong with the meal but it was on the low end of the scale compared to other restaurants in malcesine. Not...

Fantastic location. If the weather is nice this is a must visit location for lunch or dinner. The fish based pastas are great, and the pizza is really good as well. The service here is also very good, they do the little extra.

Stunning view, spaghetti bolognaise was gorgeous but the steaks were just ok. Not cooked as we requested and they won't deviate from the menu at all. We asked for a sauce with the steak (a sauce that comes from a different dish on the menu) and the answer was no. Steak was raw so sent it back, came back luke... More

Set on the lakeside, this is a restaurant ideal for a light lunch or an evening meal. Wide selection of delicious food served by friendly staff.
