The restaurant is located in a small alley, and easily missed. That means it's just of the beaten path. Not that there were no tourists, they are everywhere in Malcesine, but you feel welcomed. They are making an effort. From own experience in Malcesine (terrace...More

Down a little side street, usually found by people who are lost, this is a hidden gem for lunch. Huge portions, well cooked and served by a very pleasant and helpful waiter. This was a highlight of one of our trips to Malcesine

Very good pizza and pasta at a reasonable price. The waiter was quite nice too. They have a backyard garden which is nice in summer time.

We’d seen the great reviews on tripadviser and Joys place has been moving up the “best in” lists. I can see why. We wandered in mid afternoon looking for a snack and although not actually open, they welcomed us in and made us some of...More

Came here for dinner a couple of nights ago and really enjoyed our meal. It is in a tiny street just off from the main harbour and could easily be missed. The food and service were both excellent. We had fish and pizza but the...More
