Eat here twice with a week and on each occasion, it was considerably better than standard fare and feel of place different in a good way to what seems to be on offer in most other establishments in the area. Modest coper to/cover charge and one side dish included as standard with a main course, the steak especially, either entrecôte... More

This restaurant was opposite out hotel and based on the good reviews, we decided to give it a try. The food was excellent, service good and overall it was great value for money. This restaurant offers something different in Riva - give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

We checked Trip Advisor for recommendations and saw good reviews for the Velvet Louge. It was a fair walk for us but Mr had a hankering for a good steak and had been disappointed in Italy a few times already. We were pleased we made the effort as the restaurant was excellent. The staff were pleasant and very thoughtful and... More

Loved this restaurant and especially the staff. The food was excellent and all staff friendly and efficient. I was travelling alone and felt safe and well looked after so I chose to eat here almost every chance I had when not on tours. Due to the warm atmosphere of Velvet Restaurant I hope to return to Riva and stay in... More
