Hidden gem. Good food, need not say more. Nice authentic Italian food, recommend the char and beef with beans. Flavours well seasoned. Don't let empty tables put you off first impressions as it soon gets busy

We called in here one lunchtime as this restaurant is in a sun trap out of the wind in a courtyard. We found many locals sitting here and thought lets give it ago. The service was very prompt and efficient. The food we had was perfect and we only needed one course as we were full up after Spaghetti Bolognaise.... More

Reached the most northerly point of Lake Garda and needed a quick lunch before catching the next ferry. This restaurant coped well with the surge of tourists at lunch time and the service was friendly. It was standard Italian fare in a pleasant little piazetta close to the waterfront.

This was the only place we where dissapointed at. I felt like it was a fast food place . No care or presentation was there when we got our food. The food was blend and nothing special. I wouldnt recomend this place.

Beautiful setting in small quiet square, close to the harbour. We had an excellent meal comprising parma ham and melon followed by spaghetti with clams and spaghetti with onion, garlic and olive oil (vegetarian option). The lightest spaghetti we have ever tasted! Very good service.

This family run establishment is always a favourite with us. Set in the old town of Riva Del Garda towards the west of the town it is well worth a visit. The wine list is extensive and very reasonably priced. The service here is always good

This seems to be a family run restaurant and is all the better for it. It is delightfully located under the arches in a small piazza a few steps from the waterfront. As such it offers a secluded haven for a lunch. The food, service, indeed, the whole experience was unpretentious and had a feel of authenticity to it. This... More

What a beautiful setting under flowering jasmine in a small piazza! I would definitely come back for a drink as they have an enoteca with a surprisingly good selection of wines. But the food was simply ... not good, to put it politely.
