First of all congratulations for your Anniversary! You preferred to celebrate it somewhere else (please, Dear Reader, check it among the reviewer reviews, instructive), but congratulations anyway, especially to Madame patience. Then few little precisions. 1- I didn’t refund your deposit, because you never payed...More

What can I say other than what an amazing experience! The food was out of this world, the service second to none and the views breathtaking! It was my girlfriends 30th birthday so the owner made sure a cake was made with a nice message,...More

We have literally just finished one of the best dining experiences ever...the 7 course (although it is really seven and a half - you will understand when you try it) chefs tasting menu, each course paired with a stunning wine. I cannot even begin to...More

We really enjoyed this evening. Take note (and you can see from reading the unfavorable reviews) that the owner is very passionate about his place and the experience. But this should not be construed that he is overbearing or intimidating. We found him to be...More

We had such a great experience at the Riviera. The food was superb and so was the wine, which is surprisingly not that common in Italy. Riviera is without any doubt one of the best restaurants in Venice and therefore I strongly recommend going there!

Fine dining at its best, attentive staff, help on the menu from the owner and perfect location. Expensive but worth it

We’ve been to Venice manty times and had given up trying to find a good restaurant. Riviera has restored our faith! Virtually everything is made from scratch, lovely breads, good wine list with many at reasonable prices. One can chose as many courses as one...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
