Extremely careful service with an atmosphere of Liguria. We have been receptioned by Jose. He introduced all the special suggestions to try in one time. All of them extremely tasty! Grilled "polvo" with veggies were really incredible. At the same time pasta with shrimps! I will be back!

Went here on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed at all - the staff were friendly, the service was excellent and the quality of the food was also outstanding. Main courses range from around $10 to $30 and there is a large range of pasta, fish, chicken, mean and risotto dishes. There were 5 in our... More

Great food, great service. They give you a ballooned pita bread with a garlic sauce to spread that is really good. Great wine list. The only problem is it is becoming a little pricey. But almost everywhere you go in Guayaquil is going to be that way. It is actually cheaper to dine out in Paris, than it is to... More

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

Seven of us ate dinner here based on Tripadvisor recommendations. We ordered the seafood platter for five adults and separate dinners for two children. It was perhaps the best seafood platter I've ever enjoyed. My only complaint is that it was not big enough, given the hungry American eaters we were dealing with. So, we ordered some additional dinners. We... More
