The ice cream was good, Tiramisu was just OK, another dessert was also fine... Service was relatively slow even though the place was far from being full. Enjoyed it, but nothing to remember...

Bought a caesar salad expecting chicken but received freshly deep fried chicken nuggets. Expect they weren't from a chicken. The same applied to my partners hamburger, there wasn't much meat in that! Suggest somewhere else for better quality food.

We stopped here after our walk round Lago Di Tenno. It's on the waterfront at Riva del Garda, lots to watch. Can't fault the service or the food, I had a warm crepe with fresh fruits on a bed of vanilla cream, it was amazing, definitely recommend.

Whilst holidaying in Riva del Garda, we ate or drank here several times. The staff were always very welcoming and have great service. Drinks were always served with a small plate of snacks and the ice creams were amazing. We travelled with Inghams whose customers are entitled to a discount card for this place, but unfortunately we didn't find out... More

We have been to Riva for several years and this is our favourite place to go. I love a Hugo spritz and apple strudel. If you have drinks they bring little snacks. My husband and son always go for the sundaes and they are always fabulous. I can't recommend this place highly enough - make sure you visit if you... More

What an amazing place. We spent nearly every night here whilst on our 2 week holiday because the standard of service, the food and drinks and not to forget the amazing ice cream was second to none. I believe it is a family run business. The staff were cheerful and very polite every time we went and my god do... More

This cafe offers a great selection of breakfast options. Their cappucinos and late macchiato are awesome and service and prompt and friendly. It's been our regular breakfast post.

Excellent cafe with nice view to the lake. Best place to relax and have a wine or ice cream after long day of hiking. We were here almost every day, prices were ok and service good. I recommend.
