This was a great location for a small restaurant which served local specialties and accommodated children.

We didnt reserve prior and were told the restaurant is full despite the fact that only about 20% of places were occupied. In the end, we got a small table with the info that it is free for 60minutes only and we need to hurry... The guy looked down upon us as we came in with two kids rather sporty,... More

What a place. The best grill restaurant we ate at in our travels in Italy and possibly just the best damn restaurant period. The amazing pot of grilled cheese appetizer, the lardo served on a plate with bread sticks by the owner himself, the steak... oh my goodness the steak! Seriously folks, if you happen to be in Riva or... More

Average food and service. There are better places around to find. The view from the restaurant saves the visit.
