Riviera has excellent meat. For a lunch we ordered lomo with champignons and was just perfect. Also the meat carpaccio as appetizer was really good. This is an Italian restaurant that you should try being in Guayaquil

When in town, Gino, it's owner, is always around saying hello to guests. Riviera has also recently opened a restaurant in Samborondon which is worth visiting as well. Fish lovers, ask for... More

Riviera is known to serve the most delicious italian dishes. Prices are high and it is recommended to go well dressed also. The place is somewhat romantic and also ready to receive big parties of people. If you have a comfortable budget you should go and have a taste!
