Only had breakfast once in the hotel after discovering this place. So cheap with a huge array to choose from plus fresh juice and Proseco. The view was good as well.

Visited Cristallos twice during our stay in Riva, once for ice cream and once for crepes. Faultless on both occasions. Ice creams are amazing, my eyes were bigger than my belly on this occasion so couldn't finish but that is not a criticism at all!...More

Both savoury and sweet offerings food is of a great standard. Was not the best ice cream I've had in Italy, but certainly the ice cream was good and I would definitely recommend it and go again myself. It's a busy restaurant in a great...More
