I organised dinner here to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were immediately taken by the messages in the menu about the world, food and life. They spoke of something beyond a place you come just to fill your stomach. The food was superb, the staff friendly and knew a lot about the dishes and the sourcing of them. Portions are... More

Visited for an unplanned lunch on the back of TripAdvisor ratings. Did not disappoint. An owner meets you that is enthusiastic and loves his restaurant. Very inventive menu and a level of cuisine that deserves Michelin stars (not sure if this restaurant holds any?) The owner takes great care on his wines and the whole experience is first class. Scampi... More

The food is spectacular, the service attentive, the wine pairing impeccable - with a few pleasant surprises - and the room artistically welcoming. We truly enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu. We will remember this meal for a long time...

Pleasant and happy greeting followed by a snotty comment from waiter! Owner was charming and nice gift at the end. Food a bit too clever for our tastes, although fantastic wine chosen and recommended.

GPCremonini, Proprietario at Riviera, responded to this review

My knowledge of english is a little bit poor, so I spent a little bit of time searching for the meaning of snotty. What I found was not so exhaustive, so I sent a message to the Reviewer (the same one that congratulate me leaving the Riviera, and no any complain he did) asking for details, and he answered: “The...

If there is something like Yoga in Eating, this is the place: Almost meditative atmosphere, most attentive service (move your head only), extraordinary food and a very inviting owner made our 25th wedding anniversary a very special evening. Grazie mille, Maestro!

We were there with friends who chose that place. It was an experience from out of this World! We chose the "Wine testing menu-seven courses" the owner educated us in Italian wines and we enjoyed a dinner with the headline "REMARKABLE"! If you want to do something very exceptional this is the place!

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
