“Lovely Ambiance”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We ate out every night in Riva because our hotel chef couldn't cook. This was one of my favourite places to have a meal. Very friendly staff, a lovely outside dining area and devine seafood dishes - the free glass of prosecco was great too.

“Fantastic! We love Al Vaticano!!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We ate here twice while in Riva on our honeymoon. We found it on the first night and ended up going back on our last night as it was so lovely. Antonio is a brilliant character and he will ensure you are well looked after. The gentleman who enticed us to the restaurant was a fantastic guy who made us feel very welcome and gave us a free glass of Prosecco each. We had the river char and spaghetti Luisa on our first visit and they were fantastic! On our second visit we tried the veal with peppercorn sauce and the escallops. The veal was absolutely fantastic! They also give you a lemonchello type sorbet after your meal which really helps finish it all off. This restaurant is always busy, both inside and out front so I would advise either booking a table or going early.

“Best in Riva”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Been coming to Riva annually since 2006 and this is without doubt the best restaurant in Riva. The staff are friendly and very professional. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. We have never had a bad experience in all the times visiting this fabulous eatery and would recommend to anyone.

“Garlic Spaghetti is the best!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Each time we are in Riva we have to go to 'The Vatican' for the garlic spaghetti which we think is the best in the town. Anyone who comes with us just has to go so they can taste what we are talking about when we get home! Very busy and some of the dishes are not the greatest but its a good atmosphere.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

This was my favorite meal in Italy. Great food and reasonably priced. We had found this place after talking to a nice local who recommended it and I was certainly glad we did. Wonderful service and a great meal for a decent price.
