Riccione has dozens of beach bars and restaurants and many are OK. At the edge of Riccione one can find La Griglia however, a truly great restaurant. We stumbled upon La Griglia last year, and we were determined to go back this summer. On both occasions the restaurant could only be described as excellent.
At first, this may look like any beach restaurant - with elevated prices. From the moment the first dish is served, you'll notice this is not your ordinary beach trattoria. This is just a great restaurant - that happens to be on the beach. It's not a tourist trap in any way. The prices are rather high, but it feels like that's because they serve high quality, not because they're trying to rip people off.
We've had a variety of pasta's and main dishes and everytime they were among the best I've ever tasted. The spaghetti allo scoglio for example (shellfish spaghetti) is a popular dish along the Adriatic coast, but the version made by La Griglia has to rank among the best.
The service is also very friendly especially towards children. Next time we're back in Riccione, La Griglia will be our first stop.
PS: La Griglia is just across the Riccione minigolf course. With small children, we found the combination of family minigolf first, followed by a dinner at La Griglia a truly excellent combination.
