Ok / bad food. Situation is cool, but the service is the worst I have ever experienced. The server was being noisy every time we ordered, we could here him. At the end, we even heard him blurp and his collègue laughed. If you like your stay at riva don't go there.

Sitting on their terrace on a sunny day was a great pleasure. Welcome was correct, so was their day’s special “lavarello meunière”, grilled fish from the lake with vegetables and salad, water & coffee, 20 €.

The places was buzzing with families for Sunday lunch. Terrific service , the pizzas were great and arrived very promptly. House wine was as good as any bottle bought while in Italy. As reviewers say you can enjoy great food and watch the world pass by. All the various dishes going to other tables looked super

We have just returned after our 3rd trip to Riva. I have given very positive reviews of Hotel Villa Miravalle where we always stay and realise that I have never mentioned the Hotel Centrale where we have lunch and Happy Hours most days. I need to rectify this omission. This is where you can have a substantial lunch or just... More

Very disappointing meal out. The restaurant obviously felt that they didn't have to try very hard because of it's perfect location. The food was brought out for 3 out of 5 of our family. The other 2 were left waiting around 15 minutes for their pizzas (which weren't very good). By that time the others had finished their meals. The... More

Stayed there 1 night, pricy rooms (€120 p/night!). Cleaners entered our room without knocking..., fire alarm went off because of low maintenance due to dirty sensors (at least we know it is working...) but there is no evacuation plan in place. The rooms were outdated, low quality and most things are poorly repaired. Breakfast was as minimum as possible.

We ate here to nights in a row... Best carbonara I've ever had. Creamy and well-seasoned. I'm quit picky with flavors and this was just amazing. I tasted the pasta with clams and went to heaven. Eat it! You should eat the typical Italian dishes here. Stay away from the burger and stuff - leave that to the Americans! Just... More

We were five. Service was good. However the food was consistently bad quality for all 5 dishes ordered. Two salads, one meat dish and two pasta dishes. Let's start. The meat dish was very salty and overpowered by the wine sauce. The two pasta dishes, one pasta and clams was cold on arrival. The other one had an orange looking... More
