Great Italian experience in Guayaquil

A great setting, serving good food and nice customer service but didnt offer verdichio nor parmeggiano anymore. Nowadays its not a world class experience but an ecuadorian top of the list places to go.

This place used to be great! It had the most delicious Italian dishes and offered great service. Prices have gone up, the service has maintained itself, but the food is going down... way down. For instance, when I ordered a Rissoto, all I got was some sort of watered rice with some tomato sauce, reminiscent of the contents of a... More

Food in Riviera is always good with some outstanding dishes like the grilled octopus or the squid ink risotto with shrimp. Service is reliable and knowledgeable, well trained and attentive. Ambiance is informal and friendly. Perfect for business or pleasure

Although you can taste great seafood almost everywhere in Guayaquil, this restaurant offers a very nice combination of local and international recipes. Good service, fresh & high quality food and a nice environment resulted in a very good dining experience.

Excellent fine dining atmosphere but unfortunately the food did not meet expectations. However the carpaccio both beef and octopus where very good. The main courses of Lasagna (tiny serve) at $28 was very overpriced as was the risotto Milano . The dessert was nice but not spectacular. You can also only by one red wine by the glass. If atmosphere... More

What a great dinner. Riviera is a classic Italian restaurant with great food and service. We had a starter that I featured grilled seafood, shrimp, pulpo, clams, etc. my main course was fantastic - lobster risotto.
