My coleagues and I would like to thank Niccolo and his team for giving us such a wonderful couple of evenings during our stay in Dusseldorf for Boot 2017. Sorry for the late review!! The service was great, the food was of an excellent standard and the atmosphere was fun. If you want a piece of the "Action" in Dusseldorf... More

Trendy place, nice deco and rather lively; according to the menu they seem to classify themselves as an Italian restaurant.. well the menu has indeed an Italian touch...that's it.. I had fish, actually the sole ..which was really good...the potatoes were though a bit too much soaked into butter ..value for money is okayish... unfortunately waiter and manager know that... More

Seemingly trendy place, nice deco and lively; claim to be Italian.. well the menu has an Italian touch...that's it.. I had fish (sole) ..which was really good...potatoes a bit too much soaked in butter ..all in all good food.. rather expensive though.. if the service was a bit less arrogant it would be a really nice place

Great for dinner and to start the evening party mood. Everyone and anyone shows up here to decide the night life. Stay late for great beats and treats.

A nice and easy-going setting. Food is tasty and service is friendly. It is better to sit on the wall side of the table as there is quite a lot of pushing by the by-walking fellow customers. This is the kind of place where you spend more hours than you thought to in the first place. Not bad.

We had business dinner at this Italian restaurant located in the harbor area. Fantastic starters, my favorite was their antipasti Vitelle Tonnato. My main course was tuna, again perfectly made. All other guests were completely satisfied with raviolis and steaks too. Wine list was really good as well with aligned recommendations by the staff. Service was the best thing though.... More

We were invited to Riva for a friend's birthday party and all I can say is everything was fantastic. Riva is nusseled away in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen, which is an absolute superb location. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and courteous. If in the area you should stop by. Try the truffle pizza.

Thank Gerard H
