Me and my partner visited for lunch on Valentine's Day which turned out to be a beautiful, glorious sunny day; which in Venice on this day was quite something. We sat outside and had an aperitif which offers a stunning view over to Guidecca. We were shortly greeted by the propirter who made us feel extremely welcome in a quiet,... More

To serve as background, I am from Los Angeles and have gone to many a nice restaurant. I spent 3 weeks in Italy in October and ate at almost exclusively at Michelin-starred and similar restaurants with set menus and wine pairings. I then went to Copenhagen and dined at Noma. When I ate at Riviera, I posted on Facebook immediately... More

This restaurant is highly recommended and we enjoyed it but felt we had to be on our best behavior instead of relaxing and enjoying our meals. Better food and atmosphere in other places.

GPCremonini, Proprietario at Riviera, responded to this review

Hello mizzelle! if “to be on our best behavior” means to you that a Guest during his dinner or lunch must be careful to do not split on the floor, to do not make a too intimate finger investigation of his personal nose, to do not put a shoe over the tablecloth and to clean it with the napkin, to...

The service was impeccable from start to finish. The only reason for the 4 vs. 5 stars is that regular prix fixe menu has some odd/non-traditional choices that weren't very appealing (IMHO). We ended up ordering the pasta with white truffles (for an extra 35 Euro each) and the salt encrusted red snapper (for an extra 15 Euro each), It's... More

We have visited a lot of marvelous restaurants. This is currently NR1. The combined atmosphere and state of the art food and wine is mindblowing. Visit on a warm summer night! Just... WOW!!!

Delicious food, in particular the fish courses. Very attentive service throughout the meal (they even brought us an extra little dessert as congratulations for getting engaged earlier during our trip!). Bravi!

The restaurant was the perfect place for my engagement! It was worth every dollar and some! The owner and staff were amazing and incredibly knowledgeable regarding the wines and food. Furthermore, the service was outstanding and the restaurant is beautiful. Better yet, the sea bass is worth traveling back to Venice from New Orleans, LA where restaurants battle for just... More

The owner of this restaurant is quirky and entertaining and guides you to your seat with great attention shaking your hand and making you very welcome. There is great pomp and ceremony in giving you the menu and explaining the dishes with most people choosing the tasting menu. However, this does not work for allergies. And actually I felt rather...

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
