Lovely food and good service. We had T bone and fillet and both were cooked to perfection. The prawn cocktail for starters was huge and the mixed antipasti was delicious. Nice atmosphere sat under a canopy of vines but lovely inside too. Would definitely recommend.

A very rich menu with typical lake and mountain dishes. The dishes were very good but with too intense sauces, almost nauseating ..

Description
The origins of La Colombera, date back to the beginning of the 15th century when the town of Riva del Garda decided to build a series of towers from the utmost north of Mount Brione to the mouth of Albola to defend itself. These towers were also used as a house for the country-guards, the so-called salteri. Today's building dates back to the 16th century transformation from the feudal tower into he "dovecote", a place intended to house pigeons, whose flesh was considered very excellent.

That's why, when wartime was over, the tower was used as a residence for the high-class people, and the same happened to the other dovecotes in Riva. Moreover, building materials and techniques used show traces of the influence of the near Venetian and Po Valley towers. The tower was built with artistic chimney pots and barrel vault, and the bricks were used to make the arches. The spacious porticoes are really beautiful and influenced by the dominical building style, suitable for drawings, but nowadays there is a typical and elegant restaurant.
