Delicious panini with fresh tomato mozzarella and pesto plus good ice cream all at a decent value for money price. Nice location watching ferries come and go.

Cristallo's can be found on the main square of Riva del Garda over looking the north part of the lake, a fabulous location with a bustling atmosphere whichever part of the day you choose to visit - and the perfect area to sit and people watch in true Italian style. Even though there is a constant flow of people visiting... More

The food is excellent but the tray of extras that arrive with the drinks was a real unexpected pleasure.

Cristallo's is by the lakeside opposite the ferry boarding station. Lovely furniture, comfortable chairs, street sofas to relax in and watch the world go by. The drinks are accompanied by nibbles, the service is so, so slick, efficient and totally professional. The ice cream is pure gold and the ambience so relaxing. Hugo and his staff are great. Indulge yourselves... More
