“Good food at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Thé Italian restaurant chain in Riga you can't unsee. They are literally around every corner and it's not hard to see why. The service was nothing special/average but the food was fun and exciting, duck dishes caught my eye immediately and went down wonderfully. Nice selection of cocktails and delicious desserts as any Italian restaurant should offer really. They try really hard to make you believe you're in a Tuscan restaurant with their decor and sometimes that works. Price range for a full meal plus drinks = 30 to 40 euros.

“My favorite restaurant in Riga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Been there almost every time Im in Riga. There are several Il Patio restaurants in Riga area, been at the one in Origo center, Valnu iela and Kalku iela 6 and good experiences all places. Kalku iela is my favorite because of the cosy downstais stone cellar and friendly staff. I like their pasta dishes (and garlic bread) best, but they have many dishes and pizzas on the menu.
Quick and attentive service to fair prices.

“Stinky service, average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

The service was quite awful, except for the wine servant. Starters took long time to arrive and main corses arrived on different times. Pasta was average at best but edible. Wine prices were okay.

“Small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

This place has an upstairs sushi part also, but the review is about the downstairs Italian part.

It's very average pizzas are good but the pasta portions are really inadequate and leave you feeling hungry. Often the pasta arrives cold.

Ok for a lunch but not dinner, I think the management have tried to save on pasta costs but they have neglected their clients in doing so

“Not bad for a chain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is part of a chain of restaurants. However, this is one of the best I have tried. The staff are always polite and attentive. Although we always try to have pasta we always seem to eat the pizza's which are thin and very tasty. We always go with the Latvian beer. All in all if you are looking for a good meal at a reasonable price in Riga you would have to go a long way to find it.
