The food was delicious and the portions were satisfying. The server was helpful with my son’s allergies! Unexpectedly we had a very delicious meal.

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and it was a lovely evening. The view from the water’s edge was spectacular and we were so fortunate the weather was warm and clear. The food was delicious, service was efficient and well paced. The seafood ravioli was...amazing and the lamb chops were cooked to perfection and so flavorful. If you would like a romantic and perfect dinner by the canal reserve here! On a side note: to the obnoxious and very loud Eastern European woman who sat beside us it is not appropriate to FaceTime your friend about finding something in your apartment and disturbing the guests around you, while also vaping. Trashy, self centred and rude behaviour!More

Delicious food, nice outdoor seating by the water and efficient service. The presentation of each course was well done but it was the taste of the food itself that was the star.

Venice was our first honeymoon stop in Italy. We were craving good seafood, so our hotel recommended Ristotante Riveria. Our server, Valentino, was extremely friendly and helped us select our dishes, including a delicious lobster pasta. We had such a great first dinner date at...this restaurant with a beautiful sunset view and nice wine.More

We visited here as a family, they managed to find us a table, even though they were busy and without a booking. Very nice pasta. Enjoyed the evening.

Our favorite restaurant in Venice . Came the first night when we arrived and back here night before we leave Venice. Samuel and Claude provided best service made the evening even better. Food is excellent. We had salt coated fish twice. Fresh and tasty.

This was our first night in Venice and Klod (we named him King Lord of Diplomacy) & Valentino served us with professionalism combined with a great sense of humour. They were a fantastic double-act without overstepping the mark. Together with the fantastic food, they made...our dinner one of the most memorable ones we had during our 4 days there. All the food was delicious including the cheese board we had at the end of our meal. We look forward to returning to sample some of the other dishes on the menu when we're in Venice again.More

Great food, great ambience, a welcoming venue with good, unobtrusive service. We enjoyed three delicious meals here especially the seafood choices: Coquille St. Jacques as a starter were supreme; the fish soup was something else, delicious and filling and with plenty of seafood and the...stuffed ravioli with pine nuts just right late at night after a busy day and washed down with a glass of the House Red. Our server Klod was very helpful and interesting but the other staff were great too.More

Don’t let the location fool you, this is an extraordinarily good restaurant. It is located all the way at the south end of San Clemente -- almost on the Nixon property (tyrants seem to like being near water). The menu has high aspirations. Lots of...diabetic-friendly fish, meat, crispy, veggie, appetizers, salads, and platos fuertes -- and delivers them all well portions that will please all but the most gluttonous. The service is attentive, but not intrusive. It has the TV screens, bar-in-the-center design and lots of loudspeakers so I would guess it turns into a shout bar after 8:30 pm or so. So, if you are looking to get wasted and celebrating loudly, please wait until then. I will see you on the way out.More

An amazing find, on the waterfront opposite the Lido, just of the tourist trails, the food was sublime, the service superb and the wine was very good indeed. The price was cheaper then eating in the more touristy type places in town, where everything seems...deep fried, frozen and microwaved. I have been to Venice. a number of times and this is by far the best restaurant that I have eaten in. A special mention to our very friendly host Klodian, who looked after us and recommended the wine. Good luck for the futureMore
