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. Wasn't the... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with great food. As well as their menu they offer a lot of specials. Everything we had was absolutely delicious. All the staff were lovely to and the owner was great.

The food here was amazing, we ordered 3 of our 4 dishes from the daily specials. All were lovely. Prawn with black rice, fillet steak and macaroni cheese with ham and zucchini. The waiting staff were lovely and accommodating to everyone in the restaurant. As we ordered specials we didn't know the price on ordering, however, the quality of the... More

Delicious, really really delicious! Food is prepared fresh and the offer is really interesting. I suggest to give a try to the Lavarello (white fish) and the Carna Salada (beef). It is also an interesting experience, with the chef coming to you to tell about the dishes that are not on the menu: he speaks at double speed, provide each... More

Having unexpectedly found ourselves in Riva Del Garda at dinnertime, we hurriedly consulted TripAdvisor, and settled on Osteria la Contrada. Were we ever glad we did! The staff were exceptionally nice to our three-year-old; the owner was charming, making perfect recommendations from the menu and wine list. The burrata was super-fresh and delicious, the bigoli with lake sardines was a... More

This restaurant is really a visit worth! We had one of our most delicious dinners en Italy. Next to the delicious meals (Coregone di Lago & Burrata di Mozzarella, ...), the owner and the staff of the restaurant are absolutely adorable with children
