As an Italian, I would definitely recommend Rivoli, I have eaten there twice I found it to be the best restaurant in Mauritius! They propose delicious Menus of the Day, with thought-through recipes, as opposed to the standard average pizza and pasta offered by most of the other so-called Italian restaurants on the island. The service is very good, and... More

We saw the reviews... after eating in other local Italians expected a lot. Reality was OK but not outstanding. Food didnt have 'personality' and was not remarkable. I had a (raw) Tuna ..i love sashimi and eat it all day. Not this. My wife's dish looked great but tasted bland. Service was poor and transactional... meaning "what you having. OK,... More

This was a great night. The food was excellent. The fresh clams, homemade pasta with sea urchin, and the main, a tuna that just melted in the mouth with a great pear. Such and amazing meal. The service was good and the owners were attentive and so great. Will be back here again.

I read some great reviews, so we booked for dinner. Perhaps we caught them on a bad night but the service was so slow. We heard other tables also complaining. Food took over 45 minutes - 1 hour to come. The lady tried her best to keep us informed, but you could tell they were all panicking and not keeping... More

My husband and I are enjoying our honeymoon in Mauritius and had the great pleasure of dining at Rivoli the other night. The food was delicious, well priced and the service was fantastic!! They didn't miss a thing. The ambience and decor was so calming and romantic. Would definitely go back again!! Favourite was the Tuna carpaccio

Went there based on trip advisor reviews and I can confirm all the positives. Great food, charming atmosphere and really excellent service. Prices are a bit on the higher end but justified given the above positives.

Fine dining with a nice setting. The homemade pasta was very good. They made special food for the kids upon request and they got their food first. Desserts were great.
