“Busy eaterie, the reason, it is BRILL”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate here in May when we stayed in Riva and had to pop back in when we returned to Italy last week. This time we stayed in Garda and hopped on the bus on the Thursday and Saturday to Riva. We visited another fave restaurant on the Thursday and came here on the Saturday. We were the first diners in, by the time we ate our mains, there was not a table left. I had the seafood pasta washed down with a lovely house red and my other half, no guesses here, had his fave pizza. Could sit in there all day drinking the house wine, watching people come and go, it really is good.

Cannot believe there are no recent reviews, so maybe this will help to get this restaurant the recognition it deserves.

Nice hotel in the centre of the city, just a few minutes on foot from the congress centre and close to the little square of Riva del Garda.

Very pleasant staff!

Nice bar/restaurant and during spring or summer you can have your meal outside but breakfast buffet needs to be improved!

The room is good and the bathroom too, not very modern and fascinating but absolutely clean and adequate to the services of the hotel.

Do not miss to keep the key of the room with you if you will come back to the hotel after 10.00pm or you will sleep on the street!

The hotel is situated in a great area and they rely and make you pay for that only.
No ac, rooms with no windows, bath with no ventilation, breakfast shameless.
Worst part is that all Of that in an area that excells in tourist services.
Why we got there? Local tourist guy told me to go there.
Take my advice, stay few yards away from center but do not spoil you vacation in this great land

We ate dinner on the upstairs terrace which had a partial view of the mountains. The food was fine. Also, it was quiet up there. The night before we ate at a restaurant outside on the pedestrian street, which was spoiled by some very loud people at the next table. We recommend terrace restaurants!

Room Tip: We did not stay here, just ate dinner.

We stumbled across the Ancora and are glad we did. The location is perfect--built right into the old city wall and above the pedestrian only street Via Dante Aligheri. Our room was right above the upper terrace of the restaurant, but even on Saturday night the party sounds (which were quite pleasant, mostly) were over by 10 or so. The room was fine, but the big selling point is that it was one of two with a balcony overlooking the town, where so much of the daily life is in the streets. It's convenient to the lakeshore (though the swimming beach is a 10-15 minute walk away), close to the ferry dock, and about 1 km away from the bus station. Close to many restaurants and sidewalk cafes. Service wasn't great, and we were a little concerned that there was rarely anyone at the front desk--leaving all our room keys at risk of being used by someone else.

Room Tip: 11 and 12 have the balconies.
