On our last night we visited this restaurant rather than spending last night in hotel. Fantastic food and staff. Service superb and oh so friendly. We had a party of six and were recommended by two of our party who had been there for lunch. The atmosphere was perfect and what a great way to spend our final night. Would... More

This restaurant had been recommended by a friend, and I am so glad we went, although not on the lake side it has a lovely atmosphere. We all received a free glass of sparkling wine and we got 10% off our final bill, always a bonus. The food and wine was beautiful, I had seafood pasta which is the nicest... More

Visited Al Vaticano this evening with a group of friends. From the friendly greeting, the gratis glass of prosecco and the wonderful setting, we knew we had the makings of a good night. We were not disappointed as the food was delicious and the friendly efficient service continued. Between us, we tried several of the different meal options, the salmon... More

Best restaurant in Riva by far. Very wide choice menu instead of just pizza and pasta so everyone will find something. Very friendly staff and deceptive from outside. Tables on the street for watching the world go by but inside is a large courtyard with tables and a beautiful restaurant inside for evening dining. A free glass of prosecco welcomes... More

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
