Had lunch/drinks here several times, service could be a little slow when busy but good views of the lake and good spot for people watching, bruschetta very good and also lovely free nibbles with lunchtime drinks

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
