We stopped off quite late after a long sociable afternoon and were pleased to find a comfortable restaurant with friendly staff/owners which for Bruges we thought was very well priced. The Garlic pizza starter was excellent and my pasta Arrabbiata was fresh tasty and perfect for the occasion. My wife had swordfish which again was well cooked though she confessed... More

We had a pizza each here on February 3rd 2014. I had a Pizza Mama Mia, and my wife had a Pizza Napolitana. This was our third stab at having a pizza in Brugge over several years and easily the best. The pizza dough was clearly home made, and the toppings were nice, especially the balance of tomato sauce and... More

We have been visiting Bruges at least once a year for the the last 15 years, and every time we stay there we always manage at least one meal at Riva Del Sole. Yes there are plenty of other Italian restaurants to choose from in the city (and a few that have come and gone in less than a year).... More

Having noticed the Restaurant during our afternoon walk around the city, my wife and I decided to reserve a table for Dinner. I must say that the Chef/Patron and his wife running "Front of House" were pleasant enough, but I am afraid to comment that the food was very much average. The shared "Antipasto", was quite basic with the 2... More

We went to this Italian, as we passed it during the day and remembered seeing it on trip advisor. The waitress was not that cheery, but pleasant enough. The food was ok but it definitely was not the tastiest Italian we have eaten. The starters are very expensive! The bit that really made us mad, was the service we received... More

All prices are listed in the menu, and outside.If you think the startes are too expensive then you just take no starter or you do not eat in our restaurant.you can chose another restaurant. You had 3 startes,a pizza garlicbread,3 main courses and a bottle of Bardolino wine for the price of 81,90 euro which is certainly not too expensive!!... More

We had dinner here last night and can't really fault the place. The only thing I couldn't understanding was why most of the starters cost more than the mains. My hubby had calzone, I had lasagne, both were yummy. Tiramisu was also a delight. If your a snob who nit picks at everything this isn't the place for you. This... More

Recommended by our hotels front desk, we were not disappointed. Good service and good food. I had pasta with meat sauce. My wife had a veal dish. Both were generous portions and very tasty.

We love Italian restaurants and while we were in Brugges kept an eye out for one that looked authentic. There are many in/around the square, but they are very 'touristy'. This one looked just right - like someone had picked up a traditional restaurant from the back streets of an Italian city. It feels like an Italian restaurant should. Nothing... More
