Having unexpectedly found ourselves in Riva Del Garda at dinnertime, we hurriedly consulted TripAdvisor, and settled on Osteria la Contrada. Were we ever glad we did! The staff were exceptionally nice to our three-year-old; the owner was charming, making perfect recommendations from the menu and wine list. The burrata was super-fresh and delicious, the bigoli with lake sardines was a revelation. The butterflied whole whitefish... a bit boring, but fresh and properly prepared. At the end of the meal, we got stuck for about half an hour waiting out a massive thunderstorm, and watched the staff graciously take care of all the guests, some of whom were coming in in various states of wetness. They even let me borrow an umbrella to walk to the car.
