“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Very close to the Galleria della Accademia.
Kindness and good food.
The kitchen closes at 2100 hours, but you can have fines hams and cheeses.

“Perfect pasta and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We stopped here for lunch and had four perfect pasta dishes. The ravioli with mushroom and chestnuts, and linguini with clams in particular were superb.

The owner was polite, friendly and offered excellent service and the meal was inexpensive given the quality. We were sad that they were closed the following day for a return visit. Highly recommended.

“Better Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

We were wandering around the city and almost sat at a restaurant on the water. But after looking at the menu and at what people were eating, we decided to pass. The prices were high and the food looked unappetizing. Luckily, we just walked a short distance and found La Rivista. We had a great lunch of salad and pasta and of course some nice wine. My biggest piece of advice for tourists in Venice is to stay away from the most touristy restaurants. They are usually expensive and not very good. Explore the neighborhoods or ask a local where to get a good meal and your tummy will thank you! La Rivista gets a big thumbs up from us. So glad we found it!

“What a great place, easy to find location and wonderful staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic long lunch at this restaurant. It's surprisingly easy to find - just a couple of steps further along from the Academia bridge on the church side of the bridge. We were travelling with our 10 months old baby and unlike most places in Venice they had a high chair and the staff was so helpful and very welcoming. We had 3 courses, all fish based. The starters were an excellent selection, presented beautifully on a board. The main was tomato and sea food spaghetti. Absolutely wonderful! A little spicy but just in the right measure. And the desserts were sublime! So much so that my husband had 2!! The chef Sheila came to talk to us and was very friendly and help us choose our meal. Fabio the metre'de was very kind and helpful, we asked for a quiet corner as he ensured we had just that. Thank you both for the perfect long lunch! We'll be back :-)
