Since my buddy and me were craving for a pasta and nothing else was open or available for lunch, we decided to grab something to eat at Rivoli. If only I could turn back the hands of time so I could roundkick myself in the face and prevent myself from going there. Italy offers such a lovely and great cuisine... More

We ate at this restaurant twice while we were in Lecce and had a very good meal on both occasions. My husband had steak both times and was very happy that they were cooked - rare - as he likes them. On both visits the staff were pleasant and welcoming; some of the younger girls could speak good English while... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after walking around and seeing the sites for about 4 1/2 hours. The staff were very hospitable and nice. Enjoyed the meal, wine and relaxation. When we where there it was about 30 English speaking personnel. Recommended as a place to eat. Cheers

We stopped in here for lunch based on a recommendation from an Italian friend. It's located conveniently near the Duomo and ampitheater. I had the orrichiette because it was "typical of the region" and I new I wouldn't get it exactly elsewhere. I thought it was very good and my table mates all enjoyed their meals as well. We met...

We had two very pleasant lunches at this restaurant which is located near to the amphitheatre in the heart of Lecce. Food and drink was very good and the staff were friendly and attentive. Bruschetta is very good and reasonable. Orrichiette was well cooked and very tasty. Didn't have a dessert on either occasion as we headed to a nearby... More

Four of us dined one evening at the Locanda Rivoli, and we all thought it fine. The food was tasty, the wine okay and not overpriced considering its location near the old colosseum. Service was acceptable, and we had some fun with the staff due to their lack of adequate English and our lack of any Italian. It all leads... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner when on holiday to Lecce. It was next to our hotel so thought we would give it a try. The waitress came across as pleasant initially but seemed to ignore us when she discovered we were English. We noticed that the Italian diners were served more quickly, offered olive oils to go with their bread... More

Small portions and very poor service. Location is great, right in the center of the city and very close to the main attractions of Lecce but I think that there are better places in this lovely town to have a nice lunch. Sorry, not a good experience...

Ok lunch, but nothing to brag about. The location is good and it was a nice day to eat "al fresco". Portions were not large. My dish was good, but my wife's lacked taste. There are definitely better places in Lecce.

Bad food., bad service, tourist trap! We went for dinner - this is not a typical food - this is bad food, and not cheap. Skip! You can find better small places with much better food.
