We were in Como for 2 days and we went 2 times for dinner. Pizzas are huge, delicious and very cheap. The Staff is really kind and the owner is super friendly. The cook also hamburgers, pasta and aperitivo too.

The pizzas we had were very good! Freshly baked out of the wooden oven. Also the Caprese salad was very nice. But the Riva Cafe doesnt get 5 starts, because we had to wait for a very long time to place our order and to...More

Busy pizza/pasta place near the lake in Como. We all had the pizzas which were good and large and classic Italian style. Choice of pizzas was huge. Price was perfectly reasonable. Restaurant was full and lively.
