Visited here late December as part of a short stay in Venice after reading great reviews. First impressions were great, staff were fantastic and amongst the knowledgeable I have come across. Music was played by a harpist for most of the evening. The food was great, fresh and simple (maybe a little too simple). The fish carpaccio was a particularly... More

Me and my girlfriend visited Riviera for a meal on New Year's Eve while we were on holiday in Venice. The food was absolutely amazing, the service was very good and we felt very welcomed by the owner who personally checked that we were enjoying our meal and took the time to chat to us and tell us about what...

I booked a table for two for a NYE dinner based on the reviews on here. And I can see why everyone gets so excited about the food because all dishes that landed on our table were incredible. Intelligent dishes that are presented beautifully. There have been a few comments on the price and it's true it is expensive, but... More

Hello Yes Sir, Riviera is a Restaurant, nothing else, with an attention for the Real Products and a sense of Hospitality that are not wrote in big letters outside the door, but deeply part of our feeling, and I consider that as simply normal. It's not a trendy or fancy place, not a crowdy or noisy one; the music -live... More

We went there on the recommendation of a friend who is a regular visitor to the city and we noticed another American couple had also come on a friend's recommendation. I'm not surprised. Everything the restaurant does from the friendly welcome onwards contributes to an excellent experience.We were allowed to settle and the day's 'specials' were explained to us after... More

I was looking for a place to eat gnocchi, and the description of their "pumpkin and scampi gnocchi" sounded very good. It was good, but not better than several gnocchis I've tried before - and certainly more expensive!

Went to this restaurant without a reservation, and was lucky enough to get a table straight away. Creative dishes using the finest ingredients, composed in a very simple manner. The whole dining room was perfumed with the aroma of fresh truffles. I wasted no time in ordering the warmed buffalo mozzarella with shaved white truffle, simple and delicious . The... More

This visit was our third to the Riviera in 14 months, but the first time with live music - a lovely selection of melodies by an excellent harpist. As before, we were seated in the front room, with a view of the lights on the Giudecca Canal on the one side, and a window into the kitchen on the other.... More

This restaurant has the whole package. I was quite lucky that I was able to secure a table without reservation on the night, as it's less than 30mins of opening , it's full. We are greeted with very warm welcome. The food is absolutely fantastic, the fish starter is certainly a michelin standard dish. The service great and the owner... More
