Another top meal here.

We returned after our first visit last year to find that Osteria la Contrada has got even better. The food is really special - the prawns and black rice special and the seafood platter were both particularly good. The staff were as friendly as we remember.

The food is really special - the prawns and black rice special and the seafood platter were both particularly good. The staff were as friendly as we remember. A really good spot, we'll be going back before we leave.

We were greeted by and mainly looked after by Davide all night, he provided brilliant service and a shows a real passion for his work. He also speaks a wide variety of languages to cater for all guests. The food was expertly cooked and was absolutely delicious, the type of meal that you have when you are genuinely devastated that...

Kind waitstaff- we had a large table with some people who don't travel too much and they were very patient with us. The branzino was delicious and the kids loved their meal as well.

I am glad that this restaurant was recommended to us for I would probably not have gone in to it. The restaurant is set back from the main street and doesn't look very inviting. We saw lots of tables outside shaded by canopies and no obvious sign over the entrance. But what a find! The atmosphere was cosy and the... More

I've been here for my company conference trip. Everything was so tasty and delicious from wine to salad, etc... The desert was freaking amazing, Pana cota from Trento. I would strongly recommend and definitely will come back.

We went here on our only night in Riva del Garda! The weather was great but not so warm that you would be comfortable sitting out but the heated patio made it possible. The wine recommendation was delicious and local and the food was fabulous! Definitely recommend walking up to here rather than going to the tourist traps on the... More

I've been here for my birthday 2 weeks ago, we were immediately surprised by a great number of wines on display, looked immediately good to us. Me and my boyfriend wanted to have some regional food and wine, the menu was excellent, moreover the owner gave us a long off the menu list with some interesting fusion recipes and daily... More

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
