This was my favorite meal in Italy. Great food and reasonably priced. We had found this place after talking to a nice local who recommended it and I was certainly glad we did. Wonderful service and a great meal for a decent price.

We made the mistake of being lured into this restaurant by a man on the street handing out vouchers for a free glass of Prosecco (half a glass when it arrived). Our order was wrongly recorded and I received no main course. When I asked where it was I was abruptly told I hadn't ordered anything. A cold lasagne eventually... More

This place was busy which I believe was due to the free drinks being offered to enter. If I had only known how bad the food would was going to be, but you learn from experience and I would encourage others to go elsewhere - the Piccadilly is only a 5 minute walk away and it is excellent. I had... More

Although this restaurant was preparing to host a lunchtime wedding reception, they still took time to serve us coffee without hurrying us out.

Wilted basil in 'caprese' salad, horrible mozzarella, no olives, petulant service. Tagatelli porcini was turgid. My wife pizza was nice, but overall a 'crouching ovation' rather than a leaping, soaring one. Mind you the place was full on 29th December.

We found this little gem on our last night in Riva, wish we'd found it sooner. We had bruschetta which came in 4 small slices so plenty for the two of us to share. For main we both had penne with beef curry (sounds wierd but strangely works), and the most divine tiramisu for dessert. They give you a complimentary... More
