Staff were fantastic. Sommeliers were extremely helpful and knowledgeable; ask for the local wines. Food was really good. Decor modern Italian; stylish. Well worth a visit.

A special remark for the very good service staff : courtesy, timing, customer attention, and prompt presence without being invasive. Finally, to... More

We were passing by Riva del Garda and we couldn't pass to visit the person who was our most loved chef in Rome, our friend Giuseppe Sestito. We were missing his refined and sincere kitchen.

Restaurant located in the prestigious Lido Hotel. The restaurant is expensive and luxurious, relatively small portions but do not worry, we did not leave hungry. The restaurant offers an excellent and courteous service. It's really is not suitable for those who want something more casual. The desserts were stunning but disappointing in taste. There is not much selection of dishes... More

The restaurant offers mostly dishes with fish caught in the lake, but if you prefer meat, you won't miss a thing. Very fine dining and a very friendly staff. They immediately defect if you prefer a formal diner or if they can threat you a bit more informal and make a joke.
