This place is great! All the waiters are so friendly. You get a free glass of prosecco on arrival which is a lovely touch. The menu has loads of choice and everything we tried was delicious. They have a good selection of desserts and everyone gets a free lemon sorbet. After our first visit we got a 10% discount voucher... More

wanted to go off-lake for dinner, found this place by chance and couldn't be happier. this restaurant offers great food in a great atmosphere, and in a reasonable price. would recommend the Tortellini, the Risotto and the Mediterranean chicken breast.

Had our lunch her twice. It I'd a family run restaurant with seating inside, and outside on the street and in a courtyard. As we were walking past we were ushered in by the father before we knew what was happening. On the second occasion he greeted us like long lost friends and did the same as last time. He... More

We loved the food so much on our first visit that we went back on our last night. Very good food and excellent service. It's run by a mum and her son and they are lovely. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Well, what can I say. Brilliant food with no pizza to be seen. Louisa the owner with her son runs a good ship with freshly cooked food with some mouth watering dishes. My son enjoyed the lamb chops one night and god 7 on his plate and enjoyed them all. He is only 10. I enjoyed the chicken breast in... More

Visited during our stay in July. The food was really, really good and the service was outstanding. The only thing that I personally disliked was if you eat inside (although it's a slightly open roof) smoking is allowed and the tables are very close together. I didn't realise this until half way through our meal when the two tables either... More

We ate out every night in Riva because our hotel chef couldn't cook. This was one of my favourite places to have a meal. Very friendly staff, a lovely outside dining area and devine seafood dishes - the free glass of prosecco was great too.

We ate here twice while in Riva on our honeymoon. We found it on the first night and ended up going back on our last night as it was so lovely. Antonio is a brilliant character and he will ensure you are well looked after. The gentleman who enticed us to the restaurant was a fantastic guy who made us... More
