“Food was ordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were very disappointed after returning after 8 years. The quality which once existed no longer does. The menu was unexciting. My calamari dish was made from ingredients which weren't fresh. Tasted awful. The staff and service were friendly enough and the wine and beer cheap but we got the impression that we shouldn't linger because they like a high turnover.

There are better options.

“Eccellente!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This little cute Hotel is right in the old centre of Riva del Garda and just a couple of metres from the habour of Riva. The rooms (8) are very cosy and lovely in detail. The restaurant is extraordinary and very famouse for its kitchen in Riva. You need to be there in time!
Marisa, the owner, is always friendly, also a great help and makes your stay a great pleasure.
All in all a place to be in Riva!

“Authentic, cosy and suprising”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I aren't experts in fancy restaurants and dishes, but we know what we DO like. This place gave us a warm welcome and excelled our expectations. We ordered a homemade pasta, a half liter of white wine and a dessert the waitress recommended. The food was very nice, the staff was friendly and we had a good time eating here. That's the most important thing, isn't it?

Fantastic food and great service. A member of staff even translated the menu for me as I couldn't understand some of it. Would definately visit again!! Desserts are a must!!

“Lovely fresh cooked food”

Menu changes daily and is a real taste of Italian. Not at all touristy.
