We stumbled upon La Rivetta while looking for a combination breakfast/lunch spot in Venice. What a great find. We did not look at the reviews ahead of time. And so am glad we didn't. We each had a first and second course and everything was fantastic. My husband and I had their house red wine which was a perfect compliment.... More

This restaurant has had mixed reviews, so we thought we should test the service and food first hand. Just the two of us, at the end of a wet and stomy day in Venice, but by 7pm the weather had cleared so we were able to choose a table outside overlooking the canal. We asked for the "Tourist Menu" (Oh... More

Second trip to Venice and second trip to this restaurant. Lovely location, good service, excellent wine selection. I love their pesto sauce and the portions are large enough to take some home for lunch the next day.

We ate here this evening, choosing to be close to the apartment for once. We specifically asked about fish before going in, as they advertise themselves as a pizza and pasta place. We ate sea Bream and Bass. Both sizeable fish, beautifully cooked and served with a selection of vegetables. This was advertised as 'insalata' but hot vege was an... More

We fell into this place to get out of the rain. My girlfriend is gluten free and boy were we both disappointed. We ordered roast chicken for her and just one wing arrived, greasy and with no presentation. Honestly avoid this place like the plague- it looks lovely from the outside, but is truly terrible,

This restaurant is in a great location and the food is great value. Paid €31 for lunch for the two of us. Service was great and food tasted good. Not sure why other reviews are so bad.

PIZZERIA LA RIVETTA, SAN POLO, 1479 VENICE. Located close to the Scuelo di San Rocco, one of the great gems of Venice seldom visited, this restaurant has a cosy and atmospheric feel to it. We dropped in for lunch at 1300 but the waiters standing outside seemed miffed that we opted to eat inside (probably because they thought if we... More

Bad and rude service. Food is soso. Half of my food was cold. like heated in a microwave. The serving size was poor. Hidden charges like cover €1.50 normally other restaurants display their cover charge on the menu. I also got extra charge €4.86 for no reason. Only tourist visit this place. No local would ever visit this place and... More

We hadn't read the other reviews before going here. We were looking for somewhere else but the maps for Venice are very hard to read...more detail TA please. We gave up and just stopped here. We found it perfectly acceptable. The food was fine, the waiter was very attentive indeed. For example, he saw me squeezing the last bit of... More

My wife and I ate here for lunch thinking we were going to experience a nice Italian lunch, but boy were we wrong. One of the main reasons we choose this place was the sign(s) that stated FREE. WIFI! We did not have access at the apartment we stayed at so thought we could catch up up while at lunch.... More
