Wow! An iconic Italian resturant. Delicious food, fantastic service and great atmosphere. It's also located right next to the beach, so perfect for lunch/dinner after a day in the sun and sea!

Had dinner with my partner at 1st of may. The restaurants in town were all empty except this place. Fully booked to the last table. First good sing for us. We already expected some higher prices when we saw the beautiful plates served to the...guests but it wasn't like this at all. The prices were unbelievably low and the quality of food simply outstanding. The service as well fantastic, professional and very attentive. We ate in Gourmet and Michelin restaurants in Italy and this one is nothing less than a Gourmet! From the set up to the dessert, everything was perfect with lovely extras! Make sure you don't miss a visit and book a table in advance. The whole dinner experience was the best we had so far in Italy. A big thanks to all the staff who made this evening so unexpected special for us!More

Very good experience, food is great, nice prices, good service and a nice ambiance. You notice most of clients are locals, always a good sign. We were in the area for 5 days and enjoyed our diner twice an picked up pizza's one evening.

If you're out for a couple's night out, the place is perfect. The entrance right next door, of the same restaurant, offers the possibility to order takeaway pizza with reasonable northern Italian prices, i.e. 3 to 8 euros, plus 1 euro for gluten free option....The ingredients are fresh, the recipes are both classic and original, such as the Gardenie Pizza, and it all comes at great value. If you're budget is exploding thanks to the area's unreasonable prices (especially within the 5 Terre), then this is the place for you (also applies if you just want a simple night out with your loved one, eating delicious pizza on the beach nearby, watching the sun set)More

The pizza was good and the service was nice. There aren’t many vegan options, but one may ask to customize whatever really. Good choice of beers. The only bad thing: they told us we’d have to wait 20 minutes for a table, but it turned...out to be a whole hour.More

This is a lovely restaurant a stones throw from the sea at Riva. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and were very well informed about gluten free food. The two in our family needing gluten free food both had delicious fresh pizzas and there...were other gluten free options too. We had a lovely evening here and would highly recommend it to anyone.More
