This is a fantastic fine dining restaurant in Riva del Garda. There are other restaurants with a similar food quality but the whole package of the building the super nice interior and the nice balcony together with the awesome tasting menu is real fantastic!

We had a very nice dinner. The terrace is romantic with a fantastic view on the lake and the mountains. Service is dedicated and very good. The Chef offers a variety of dishes coming both from local cuisine and more classic Italian choices. We will go back certainly!

We dined here in our own capacity and as guests at a wedding reception. The food was elegantly presented at just the right portion size. The beef and seafood dishes we perfectly prepared and fresh. The non-meat/seafood dishes were full of flavour and inventiveness. Highly recommended for a special occasion or an intimate meal with family and friends. The terrace... More

We only ate once in this restaurant this year as we felt the prices had gone up enormously from last year. The food is of an excellent quality but there are many other restaurants old and new in Riva that serve food of a similar quality and are priced more realistically. We have been loyal to the Hotel for three... More

We had the tasting menu. It was amazing. We asked for a recommendation for a moscato and it was the best I've had. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and come back. The staff was very nice and helpful and described every dish which made the experience that much more memorable. Remarkable view. Loved every bit of it.

Fantastic service, great atmosphere. The variation on the menu could have been better but overall very nice evening. Would advise to arrive in evening wear as we were not expecting such a posh restaurant and arrived in shorts etc. Wine menu good.

Every year we spend our holiday at Lago and every time, we pay visit to our favorite spot in Riva. This is the Lido Palace and its superb outdoor restaurant. Enchanting views of the lake Garda, serenity, harmony, peacefulness and great food, service and overall experience.

We stayed at the Lido Palace where this restaurant is located. We found the food to be ok, but not great value for money.
