The main feature for this hotel is its positon - right on the lake by the ferry point. The outdoor eating terrace is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. the food is nice - not earth shattering but nothing to complain about. The service is very prompt because I guess they want a quick turnover. Lovely place to have a drink.

We visited the Centrale Hotel during a holiday to Riva first week of August 2012,. The restaurant looked busy, usually a good sign but unfortunately we did not experience much hospitality from the very start. We were pointed to a table by a young man who disappeared with the tablecloth and didnt return. A pleasant waitress came over and asked if we wanted to eat or drink and apologised on his behalf. We ordered drinks and looked at the menu, my husband chose the sirloin steak and asked that it be cooked well done - the gentleman who took the order was rather sharp and when I enquired if I could have the chicken in mushroom sauce rather than what was stated on the menu he more or less said it couldnt be changed. anyhow the order was placed and within 5 mins the steak arrived - a t-bone not a sirloin. When the plate was put on the table the waiter asked if there was anything else and my husband said he had ordered the sirloin - the waiter called to the person who took the order who then strode over and stated sharply that it was indeed a siroin steak - two or thee times my husband disagreed with him to no avail. When he cut the steak it was raw in the middle, it was removed only to be brought back again 2 mins later, still a bit red in the middle. The potatoes and veg were lukewarm by this stage. In the meantime my meal had arrived - the sauce with the chicken was very greasy and the potoatoes served in a separate bowl were nearly cold.
I seen little point in mentioning any of this to the person who took the order - he did not seem remotely interested in what type of food was being served. We paid the bill at the insistence of a young man who claimed neither the restaurant manager or the hotel manager was available to discuss our disappointment - my husband was told to return the next day and someone would discuss this with him. He went to the hotel three times, no one was available. We would definitely recommend you do not waste your money here. A trip to the nearby Vaticano or Maffei restaurants would be very worthwhile for anyone who prefers a pleasant dining experience - indeed it would be worthwhile for the manager of the Centrale restaurant (if there is one!) to go along and see how to treat his paying customers!

We do not normally frequent hotel restaurants, however on a Saturday night we were struggling to find somewhere to eat and when passing a table came empty so we popped in. Despite being really busy, the staff attended to their jobs with effeciency and pleasent manners. The food was very well presented, of excellent quality and without excessive waiting. Happily the price is also in keeping.

The location of the resaurant onto the main square in Riva means that there is always lots of activety to see without being too intrusive and backed off by lake views and wonderfull old buildings. Well worth a visit.

Locates in the busiest place of the city, and obviously doesn't need to compete for clients with their food (or anything else). Day's special - local fish - was dry and the steak also overcooked. Extra items in the bill left a bit bitter taste in the mouth.
