Small typical Italian eatery. If you want good pizza or good pasta at a reasonable price this is a good place to eat. Found just off the main piazza and only a couple of minutes from the ferry port, it's ideal for lunch. You can see your pizza being cooked in the ovens. The food is tasty and well worth the money. The atmosphere is typically Italian. The service was excellent. The restaurant is decorated with various pieces of artwork, which pass the time whist you wait for your order to be freshly prepared. We would definitely return.

Ok, nothing special. Concerned that toilet had no hot water or soap. Food ok or pizza but pasta dishes on the small side

Place looked nice and inviting with colourful art work. Menu seemed to have some odd combinations of foods. I am list for words to describe what was put in front of me for a grilled salmon with vegetables. There was what could only be described as a soggy green dishcloth on my plate, which turned out to be spinach, with a dried up piece of salmon and a few French fries. I took one mouthful and actually told the waitress to take it away. It was a disgrace.
To be fair the waitress took it away and I wasn't charged for that meal. My partner had a a fillet which was as thick as a escalope and green beans which were so over cooked they were nearly grey. He was too polite to send his back!
If you are expecting well cooked fresh food by a competent chef, don't come here.

Nice food and beer. Excellent service by staff and chef. Lots of decoration on walls. Lots of good memory in Riva. We got here in off season. Lots of shops and restaurants closed. But it is a good place to visit with beautiful lake view, and you could relax here.

Nice spot for s light lunch for my wife and me. Pleasant waitress. Ordered drinks which arrived promptly but there was a 7/8 minute gap between my wife's soup and my spaghetti carbonara arriving. I know carbonara takes time to prepare (and it was delicious) but they should have held the soup as she was nearly finished by the time my dish arrived. Wouldn't be too happy about the tolerance to pet dogs in the restaurant as there were several disputes between doggies which resulted in barking matches. What is the position if somebody gets bitten by an edgy dog in a restaurant ? Is the owner or the restaurant responsible ?
