Not very welcoming but overlooking the cold reception we thought the food would be worthwhile. Dry pizzas and soggy pasta. Minestrone like dishwater and seasoned badly. Sullen service ended an unremarkable meal and we left disappointed. Nobody seemed to care least of all the chef. Totally unremarkable. Avoid.

This is a nice and cosy Italian restaurant. Food is prepared by the Italian chef. In that sense, it is much better than the brasseries at Grand Place, 200 meter to the center, where only processed frozen food is warmed up and sold at very high prices. Riva dec Sole offers a very decent meal at low prices; drinks are... More

I ate at Riva Del Sole with my family in November. The food was good and I would eat there again. The best part though was our Italian waiter, he was very friendly.

Me and my boyfriend both had a lovely meal here. Well priced! We booked a table as always seemed to be busy. Recommend to anyone looking for good food at a good price.

A bit of a throw-back to those cosy Italian trattoria of thirty years ago, the decor of this high-street shop unit is red-checked tablecloths, fake vines draped over wooden latticework and quirky photos and paintings of Italian scenes and characters on the walls. It offers fantastic Italian home cooking with professional, attentive service. Plenty of Italian diners when we were... More

You will feel as you were in Italy, caneloni are delicious! Pizzas also and tiramisú was the best I ever tasted! We had a nice conversation with Domenico, the owner, he was very friendly and made feel us comfortable in her restaurant! Pizza, caneloni, tiramisú and two beers 40€, cheap in Brugges! Thanks Domenico!

We ordered just one pizza to share (we were charged 2 eur for sharing) and it was horrible - no taste at all. We left almost everything uneaten, paid and complained to the waiter but he only repeated indifferently "yes, thank you, thank you". Do not go there!!

What to expect in such a busy place like bruges. Pizzas are good. Fresh ingredients service is very personal. Prices are more then OK. We ate at a place were the pizza magahrita was 19.80 euros. Here a decent 10 and all fresh stuff on your plate.

We visited on 14 October and were very disappointed. It was our first visit to Brugge and this restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel. It looked quaint and traditional but once inside we realised it was a bit tatty. The lady owner seemed friendly and took our order for a bottle of wine from the menu priced... More
