Nice food good vine

This restaurant located just on the border of old town has a good local cousine. The vine selection is one of the best in Riva. If you are looking for a good vine with some nice food I recomend this place.

homely italian welcome and service but the food is several notches above any tourists restaurants you will find in the area. Menus are well put together and beautifully executed without fuss. Highly recommend to anyone who appreciates good food

My family and I had dinner at Osteria La Contrada while staying at the nearby Lido Palace hotel. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel, and by god were we in for a surprise! The food here is excellent in every way. The beef carpaccio was probably the best I ever had, the truffle tagliatelle are just right, and I... More

We visited Osteria La Contrada outside of season and had an outstanding dinner experience. We started with a black ginger risotto with gamberi and four different sauces resp. a carpaccio with truffles. As main course we had grilled branzino with grilled vegetables, polenta, and potatoes, followed by a chocalate-mascorpone dessert resp puff pastry with crème chantilly and fresh berries. All...

We found this Osteria on tripadvisor and were going to visit it since our first day in Riva del Garda, but have a such chance only on our last evening in town. We tried to have a dinner the day before, but it was full, so we decided to make a reservation even it was Monday. All the tables were... More

We dined here on our wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. It was a quiet night but our host made us feel very special and at home even though there wasn't the buzz that you get in busier places. The food was delicious, my husband had a seafood pasta special which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the beefsteak which... More

We visited Osteria la Contrada based on Trip Advisor recommendations and found the ambience of the restaurant to our liking. We sat in the courtyard which was already occupied by a number of guests, including some locals which is always a good sign, and the location of the restaurant means that it's sufficiently distant from the main tourist zone that...

Food was grand, can't remember what I had which speaks volumes. What I recall though is that I ordered a high end wine which was unavailable but the waiter gave me an equivalent for the same price ( in fact he suggested we were getting it cheaper than usual) research after would suggest that was not the case.
