Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food was like scrapyard but service was good. Pizza was very creasy and toppings didnt taste anything.

No to my taste. The pizza was too heavy with too much of cheese. I have traveled extensively in Italy an prefer less toppings and more simple approach to my pizza.

This restaurant was chosen by us as it was a beef restaurant. All in all I would say that you're getting pretty much according expectations. Not a best beef meal I have had but a decent one. Service polite (note that in many places seems...to have an old "soviet-like" attitude..."just working here", so this is worth mentioning).More

Nice "hidden" pizza place, got a hint from a friend from this place, so visited it one evening on our trip. Ordered 4 different pizzas, those came to table pretty fast. Pizzas were tasty and nice looking. The place is nice, staff is friendly. I...recommend this place. Too bad that i didint remember to take any pictures :(More

Went to Good Father Riga for a pizza. It was a most horrible experience I have ever had. I’m a pizzalover but this so called pizza I couldn’t eat. Grease, bad tasting, ham was like an old bacon and the hole pizza was something you...can’t describe.More

Normally one should try local food but Goodfather is worth the visit for its excellent version of Italian food. The pizza is especially good as it is New York style thin crust but does not have the flaws of some NY style pizza. There is...an excellent wine and spirits list as well. Not extensive but good choices. I had a 1/2 bottle of Pol Roger champagne that was very reasonably priced. Service is very good. The music, at least today, leans heavily toward 1960s and 1970s British Invasion.More

The best pizza in Riga. Friendly and fast service. I recommend. It's worth coming here all the way from Finland.

A delightful joy. The tatar was fresh and the bread and oliveolie was nothing less than amazing together with rest of the dish. The pizza (The good father) had good umami, acidity from the tomato and overall just a very well put together pizza. Smiles...from the staff made the rest of the evening an unforgettable experience. Simply a must try restaurant.More
