We stay here for a week. From arrival we knew this place was the right pick for our family vaca. Really nice welcome and 1st day. 10 minutes walk to beach and 15 mins walk to old part of Riva. Rooms are super nice. Cozy...and really really clean. Restaurant open at 7pm for dinner and food is great. Really good place to stay with family or romantic weekend or wedding. Wine yard right under your window and view from each window always give you something u wanna see.More

Food was like something you would get in a school canteen, or dished up in the hospital, it was very poor. Setting is lovely, but service completely disorganised and food worst we’ve eaten in Italy. The photo is the pork dish with congealed gravy, coming...in at over €20More

we stopped for lunch at this restaurant (pre-booked as our group was 47 people!) and we had excellent food, eaten under a vine pergola that let the breeze through and the heat out. the staff is friendly and very helpful. I had a great vegetarian...meal among a sea of meat-eaters ;)More

We had booked a table at 7pm - apparently prime time and too much trouble for too few waiters. We visited the restaurant with our 10 months old baby (we've been to many restaurants with her and never had issues as she is very happy...to eat among other people) and when asked whether we wanted to sit outside or inside and preferred inside as the temperature was a little cold the waiter showed us to some kind of separate room in the very corner. There were about 6 tables but none of them was set even though the restaurant was well attended. We were the only guests in that area and did not feel welcome. In addition, we were not serviced for more than 20 minutes even though the waiter recognized we were waiting and decided to leave. Definitely not the dinner we hoped for and the very first time we experienced that kind of bad service in baby loving Italy. Menu and location looked nice, but being treated like this we left and chose another restaurant.More

We got there without reservation and luckily they found us a beautiful spot in the back garden. It's even more beautiful than the front garden, it felt like a movie. Food is pretty good, the house wine was delicious and the staff very nice (when...they had time, it was so busy, I imagine they were exhausted at the end of the evening). Definitely recomend!More

We were recommended to this place by a local and were not disappointed. The Terrace was very charming with a vine covered pergola covering the dining space. The food was tasty local fare and seafood. Good for a romantic dinner or a larger party.

Enjoyed an evening here sitting in a beautiful courtyard with open kitchen . Shared an entree of pasta with cheese and pear,. Waiter was very good to devide portion onto two plates. Followed by beef strips on rocket and fillet steak ,both well enjoyed and...served with saute potatoes and vegetables. Despite there being many waiting staff on duty (and not busy), we were not offered desserts and after approx 20 mins we called staff member over and requested dessert...is this the norm in Italian restaurants as have noticed this before? Shared a tiramisu which really disappointed as was dry cake with no hint of coffee. Good coffees,nice wine...for€80 for two it was an enjoyable meal and would recommend!More

The restaurant is quite big (with the big outside seating) in a quiet place. The staff were nice. We had few kinds of pasta, all were good. So I can recommend this restaurant. The prices are mid-range, so I mean ok.

I was celebrating my birthday in Riva del Garda for a whole week with friends and family coming and going. I realized that one night there would be 30 people and scrambled to find a place that could accommodate for drinks and snacks with 1...days notice. Paulo was a star. He brought us out to the vineyard, where we had prosceco, wine, beer and water and tables filled with 6 different appetizers. It was really an enchanting evening, something that everyone will rememberMore

Nice seating inside and also in courtyard if not too close to the grill station. Food was not worth mentioning. Bistecca fiorentina was close to rare and not the best quality. Service slow and negligent. There are better places to go in Riva.

Great dinner, super busy but food excellent. I had fillet steak, came quick and cooked perfectly. House red also good and very drinkable. If you are staying close then I would recommend, not sure I’d travel far as so many restaurants are amazing. It’s set...back away from the tourist trail.More

We enjoyed a great meal of enormous steaks cooked to perfection in this busy farmhouse restaurant. On a hot night the best seats are in the coutyard which is covered with attractive vines, but be sure to ring ahead to reserve your table. Service was...great despite the restaurant being full.More
