We went here to have breakfast. Despite the fact that the place was not too busy, it was impossible to be served. Waiters prioritised clearing tables and putting menus on empty tables rather than taking orders from customers that were already there. After asking one of the waiters to take our order and still not being served, we left. We found much nicer and cheaper place just round a corner.

We have spent many a relaxing evening here, sampling their delicious cocktails, which are always accompanied by a mouthwatering selection of carefully prepared nibbles! The outside tables face out onto the lake and in my opinion there is no better place to spend an evening people watching and enjoying the entertainment going on around the piazza.
I highly recommend their huge selection of Rammazzotti Spritz cocktails!
First visited Lake Garda a couple of years ago and found Caffe Cristallo, was so happy to find it exactly as I remembered this year, they have a winning formula which will keep me coming back!

This is a fantastic place to while away some time down at the harbour. The ice cream is terrific as well as the vast menu of Spritzs. Coffee isn’t too bad either . If you visit Riva, you must come here. We visited several times during our week long stay in the town. Service was good but not overly intrusive and prices pretty standard.

Great sports bar, watched MotoGP, Wimbledon and Tour de France whilst enjoying great views and superb Gelato. The manager/owner was very friendly and helpful. spent (too)many hours enjoying the beer & wine, superb food and of course their excellent Gelato. We shall visit again as I complete my challenge of sampling every gelato on the menu. Thanks for making a good holiday a great holiday, see you again next year. !!!!
