We went there for dinner after family went there and said it was amazing. The starter of the salmon tartar was great. My partner liked his meal but my lasagne was lacking a little flavour which is why I gave it a four instead of a five. The service was amazing with the waiters being very attentive. The wine was also delicious.

We were going in from the beach and my friend wasn’t wearing her top yet she was still in the swimming suit, and as we walked in she started screaming at us!! She couldn’t even look at us and screamed at her to wear her top!
Not recommended, we left immediately

We rented an airbnb just above the restaurant and ate there 2 different times throughout our stay. The food is soooo amazing. We had the the Tasting Menu and EVERYTHING that was brought to us was FABULOUS!!! The wine was also amazing. The service is incredible as well. One of the evenings was cool and they brought warm blanket capes our for all the guests so you could enjoy the outdoor patio views. We are returning to the same airbnb again in September and look forward to a few meals here once again.

First off - make a reservation! We heard how good this place was and decided to just stop in. We were surprised when we were told to come back in 45 minutes and a table would be available for us. We ended up waiting an hour and a half. Probably would have left if it wasn't for the offer of Prosecco while we waited. ; ) We were offered either an indoor or outdoor seating. We chose outdoor .... forgetting that all the locals smoke incessantly. We started our with an order of salted anchovies as this is a local specialty and we wanted to try it. It was very tasty as was a nice bottle of local white wine. The menu is limited but has offerings for everyone. My husband ordered the fried seafood plate which included calamari and shrimp. The shrimp were just caught that morning and it was advised to eat it whole - legs, head, et al! I ordered the local fresh fish and it was simply magnificent. As is all nice restaurants, the pace is slow and leisurely. (we were just in a hurry to catch the last train)

We were told by Nicolas at La Zorza Hotel that Rio Bistro was the best seafood restaurant at Riomaggiore and so we have dinner on May 15, 2018 and did confirm that is not only a restaurant with a great view and a beautiful dining room but it is a superb seafood restaurant, outstanding food, superb service and a perfect ocean view. We arrived late without reservation and we were immediately told by the owner that in 5 minutes they will have a table for us and so we accepted and we were offered two glasses of Prosecco and a chair to wait, superb attention. This was the first time we had a delicious capressa followed by a fry seafood platter with delicious fresh fry sardines and jumbo shrimp, all the seafood was delicious and cook to perfection. Bottle of house wine and dolci and the superb dinner was very reasonable priced. Riomaggiore had many good restaurants but Rio Bistro has to be one of the best seafood restaurants in Italy. Be sure to make reservations preferably while the sun is going down to enjoy the view. We highly recommend this restaurant to any seafood lover.
