We tried to venture out to find a restaurant in Riva del Garda that wasn't so touristy. Based on reviews, we ended up at Restel De Fer. We arrived with our almost 2 year old for dinner, and- to be honest- I contemplated leaving after seeing the menu especially because of our son. The menu is rather short and the... More

Great place. The food is absolutely lovely, diverse and interesting. Not like the typical touristic places with the standard pizzas, pastas, etc. The service is really great, the waiter explains a lot about the different dishes and the different types of olive oils, wines, etc. The pricing is mid-range, which is actually cheap for their high standard. All in all,... More

I have visited Italy many times and love Italian food, but this was not what I expected. We all ordered what we thought was bruschetta, but it was not related to it....there was no toasted bread! I struggled to find a pasta dish that I would like....and I'm not picky when it comes to pasta. The risotto contained orange and... More

Dear Madam, we are really surprise to know that you didn't enjoy the dinner. When the waiter asked if everything was okay, there was no critics, and the menu explains very well the type of the dishes (only local, fresh and organic ingredients) that we propose. About your comment, we have some clarifications: - We are not a tourist restaurant,... More

Nice food with great recommendations from waiter on both the food and the suitable wines. Since the restaurant has a wine store next door, the full selection from the store is available as well as tasting etc. Note that it is an indoor restaurant - no out door seating and that the menu is not children friendly.

Wonderful restaurant on a quiet side Street in Riva del Garda. Amazingly fresh ingredients with an emphasis on locally sourced food and local recipes. It’s family run, quiet and quaint. The staff is attentive and speaks English very well. They have a lovely patio in the back with a retractable roof. Highly recommend if you want a great restaurant off... More

For 3 tiny plates of cheese (apertiser) we paid 90€!!! Could get 3 kg for that price. The menu indicated 12€. Was very akward. The overall good impression of the restaurant was poisoned by this huge amount in the bill :(((

Excellent restaurant. We had a meal with recommended paired wines. Cannot fault anything from wine to food, all beautifully prepared and presented. The home made chutneys with the cheese board were amazing. We had drinks on arrival, different wines with each course and our total bill only came to just over 100 Euros . Would be top of our list...

My husband and I went here based on reviews and the food was delicious and the ambiance very pleasant. It's clearly a family-run business where the staff clearly care about their food and wine and are keen for you to enjoy the experience too. The menu is very minimalistic and I wish the waiter had told me to order more... More
