The one I've visited was a new Riviera restaurant located at Samborondon Island. The food was excellent but the service was extremely slow and distracted. While they keep getting tracking of service try the one located at Guayaquil city center.

I visited this restaurant during the summer and had a bad experience. This time I had a much better one. Since there were not many people at the restaurant this time, we had a better service. The risotto and pasta we had were delicious. The only thing I can complain about is the long time it took for us to... More

We had a business meeting on a friday afternoon, and it turned out to be great! If you ask for a mix entrance, they have a great option of grilled seafood. The prawns are my favorite, but there are several options you can enjoy. The rissoto ( 6 different recipes ) is tasty and the size is perfect. Also the... More

This place is a great place to go with your family, with a date or even with friends. Cozy and romantic for any time of the day. The " pan bomba" is my favorite. I have never seen it in any other place in the world!

In my last visit ( im a very regular customer) I had antipasti of cheese and ham that was excellent, delicious. As main dish we had Sword fish, just excellent and a very tasty spaghetti matricciana. Very good option, and the place is very nice, centrally located.

Despite our entreaties for Ecuadorian alternatives, our local guide kept recommending Italian as the best cuisine Guayaquil has to offer, so we tried the Riviera. It looks like a typical Italian restaurant in the US in the early 1960s but seemed to be a place that the locals frequented. I began with portabellas in a creamy Parmesan sauce like I'd... More

I consider Riviera the best italian restaurant in Guayaquil, not only because il sapore, but also because the quality of all the products served in every plate. All fresh, and tasteful. A bit expensive for ecuadorian standards, but quality is priceless when you enjoy a precious italian meal, ben oltre i confini italiani !!! Auguri e buon appetito !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is an old restaurant in Guayaquil which preserves the excellent quality and great Italian food. Price is not the lowest but it is worth to pay a little bit more. As in other good old restaurants service is also very good, once the place is run by the owners and the waiters have a long time there so the... More
