This cafè and its icecream shop is simply the best in the arra. When we come back to Riva we always stop here, enjoy gelato, have a chat with Erwin, the owner, and watch the world go by. Superb location by the water, wonderful icecream, clean and recently renewed cafè, simply perfect! Bravo Erwin!!!

We had lunch here after a boat trip and it was extremenly good.

Excellent service and affordable food. Saw some of the awsome ice cream... More

Lovely café right by the ferry port. Great service, great food, great coffee and drinks, I could go on but why not try it for yourself. Have been coming here for coffee and lunch whilst visiting Riva over a number of years. All staff very welcoming and accommodating. It is always busy which is a good sign.

Situated by the harbour in Riva del Garda this restaurant /cafe is a great place to sit to watch people promenading. They have a huge choice of fast food, drinks and desserts which is perfectly acceptable fayre. Prices are on the high side for this type of food.
