Lovely seafood restaurant. The food is just to die for. There are other dishes than seafood. My husband had a fillet steak and it was Devine. I had the seafood platter and there was enough for two people. Highly recommended.

A cold wet March afternoon in Como. Not many restaurants open. We were hoping that meant if we did find one that was open then it must be good so expectation started high. We were not disappointed. Friendly welcoming staff. We started with a seafood platter. Simple and cooked to perfection. I had scampi gnocchi as my main as it... More

We've been there for a dinner on February, the restaurant has 2 rooms, the one in the right side seems more romantic and intimate. The location is right beside the lake, very elegant and nice. We had a dinner with fish, but we plan another one for trying the meat also. The menu is equilibrated, makes you wanna come and... More

We find the L'antica Riva in Como during our last stay. Good location beside the lake, the staff is friendly and helpful. The starter we liked very much, really nice. We ordered the seafood grill, the presentation was fantastic but.... the cooking just ordinary and a bit dry... a pity. The prices are OK but it was not so good... More

Elegant, refined restaurant within an antique setting (walls, bulding etc). The beef fillet was excellent though the medium cooking was more of a rare. Facing directly the Como Lake, it's definetely a great place for a good lunch

the atmosphere is very nice and chick, upper class. If you want to impress your business partners it is the right place. Service very accurate and multilanguage. Variety of dishes - mainly fish but also meat. Quality/price good average.

We selected this place based on a common indicator; it was crowded and did not seem touristy. Very good food and wines. Moderate pricing. Friendly atmosphere. Real local food experience.

What a shame!!! Nice atmosphere, food is good, however, the waiters are there to take advantage :(! They push everyone to order more, will offer poor advise in order to double your bill. Wines can and will be tripled if you take their recommendations!! Highly embarrassing considering I used to go there often. Recently each time has been a rip... More

LOVE THIS. And it was my second time till I could not choose another place while passing by I just had to stop and go in. Unrivable and so romantic. Gran Antipasto a mix of cold cuts and cheeses is very rich and you can hardly take then pasta and meat so you simply have to choose one of the... More
