We visited Cristallo on few occasions and they were great each time.

Everything from the coffee, Asperol Spritz, Prosecco and ice cream was top quality and good value topped with the excellent view across the lake

Highly recommended

After reading the great reviews about Cristallo we made it one of our first stops when we arrived in Riva...we were not disappointed!
The service was faultless...quietly efficient and friendly, the ice creams were divine, and the snacks that accompanied the drinks got bigger by the day!
We also ate here during the day a couple of times and the snacks and crepes were also tasty.
The prices were very reasonable considering the prime lakeside location - perfect for watching the fireworks over the lake on our last night!
There was usually football or music on in the background which didn't interfere with the atmosphere or conversation - our daughter enjoyed the DVD concert that they played most nights.
All in all a lovely place to have an after dinner drink and ice cream....we will be back.

We visited this cafe a number of times while staying in Riva. We sampled all of the cakes while we were there and each and every one was delightful. Service was always prompt and friendly and the whole place was immaculate. A great place to watch the world go by in a beautiful location... And I haven't even begun to describe the superb ice creams!

Our welcome meeting with Inghams was held in this cafe on our first full day in Riva and we were I introduced to the staff and given a 10% discount card to use throughout our stay. We had lunch there a couple of times- cheese toasters with chips and sampled their fabulous ice cream sundaes - so spoilt for choice! In the evening we had coffee there( as the hotel Villa Nicolli didn't supply with evening meal and we refused to let them wheedle yet more Euros out of us on their super inflated charging) and were pleased to watch football (Italy of course but always happy to watch the national team!) and then a recording of the Bee Gees- brought back happy memories!
A great quayside location and a good ambience. Food is served without waiting long and staff are very attentive and polite. Would definitely recommend for snacks and ice creams!

The staff are always very friendly and welcoming. The location on the lake is superb, we have been regulars here for the past 6 years and is the only gelateria we will visit. The ice cream is the best you have ever tasted and the choice of cakes and pastries is by far the best on the lake. A special mention has to be made for Irwin and Illy who always make you feel special and make the Cristallo the place to be!
