Good Italian food

Good place for a nice night out. i've been 2x, once with a pair of friends - fancy service. And then again for a large party of over 20 where they handled the group well and gave us each individual checks which was super helpful for a group that size

Classic Italian trattoria. Seafood and pasta are the best. There are many new Italian restaurants, nothing like Riviera, its a classic.

Touted as a landmark in Guayaquil, we visited the place and had a nice time. The food is good but nothind memorable. Staff is very professional and among the best I have seen in the city. The atmosphere quiet and imtimate. Wine lovers will appreciate their selection.

We both had different kinds of pastas, they were both bad. The bathroom lights go out while you're in there if you do not move. The chairs are not comfortable at all and everything was expensive. Also, they did not have half of the desserts. The only good thing was the service.

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!
