This is such a little gem of a place, its in a quiet square just off the main square. The service, food and ambience is lovely. Its nice to sit out if weather permits but we sat in one day when it rained and it was very relaxing. The food and wine are suberb and very reasonably priced.

We saw this restaurant during the day and were very taken with the tucked away location next to a shrine. Off we went that evening and feeling a little adventurous given that I am not a pasta fan I went for spaghetti vongole only to be told no!! Sadly the lady had very little English and I have no Italian... More

...but close to center. Manly used by local people it's in an internal quite square. Easy going, good plate of the day express made. Try the "pasta con sarde di lago" and the "fettuccine with mushroom", very good! Not so much sweet choices but enough. Good food/price level

Set in the old part of Riva this establishment is worth seeking out. The menu is not over complicated but offers some seriously good local dishes. The service is good, the setting really authentic. Although in a very old building when walking to the toilets which are extremely modern and clean you can see food being prepared in the very... More

Visited Riva whilst exploring the north of the Lake. We, my wife and I, did not want to eat at any of the mass produced, over priced eateries on the front, over looking the lake, so chose this place which is literally 50 yards back and in a nice quiet square. We ordered carafes of the house white and red... More

Great simple family food in a lovely spot just off the main hustle and bustle of riva. Menu is short but the service and simplicity of the meal more than made up for it the gnocchi dumplings are a must!

We stopped in Riva for lunch and went to Il Gallo as recommended by our guide book. It was excellent. Lake trout, meat and pasta dishes were top quality and service was excellent. Riva is beautiful. Highly recommended.

Felt like a family owned business where meals are cooked with "mother's" passion. Fair prices and really tasty food. Recommend trying the beef with beans.

We went to this restaurant as the hotel recommended it and said you would get a 10% discount. We weren't really fussed about the discount, but when I asked he said no that is just for publicity. I will be reporting this back to our hotel. Wouldn't recommend it. Food was ok
