This was our favourite restaurant in Riva. The food was very well cooked ( we had the lake fish) and the menu had a local feel to it. There was a section of daily additions as well. Our food was served outdoors in a secluded little courtyard, which gave the place a very nice atmosphere. The staff spoke excellent English, and were happy to give advice on food and wine (we like to order wine by the glass, and they had plenty to choose from). The only point to make is that the restaurant is slightly out of the way. Its just outside the gate to the old town ( literally 10 yards or so). You might not stumble across it if you were just wandering around the old town. But, it my advice is that it is well worth the effort to find it. It will be our first choice when we go back to Riva.

A first class restaurant with plenty of room to move about. We were served by the owner who was very capable and experienced. The service was quick and excellent choice on the menu at a very fair price. Would certainly return

After getting engaged by Lake Garda we decided to celebrate with an authentic and delicious Italian dinner. We took recommendations from Tripadvisor and were not left disappointed.
This quaint little restaurant is tucked away off the main strip and as you enter it, racks upon racks of winebottles surround you. It gives the immediate impression that they know their grapes, and they certainly do.

The food, wine, staff and ambiance was divine and all to a very reasonable price. I would urge everyone in this area to go try it out. You will leave there full, satisfied and a little tipsy.
