At the beginning about several months ago, this restaurant used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Sanur. I like to come here regularly. I like the food and the atmosphere. In April 2013, the quality of the food goes down and the price increased as well as its policy which makes customers run away. In my opinion, once... More

I stayed at the Safare resort for a few days recently and had most of my meals at the Riviera. I decided to try as many dishes as time allowed to see if it was really possible to create the kind of flavor that is described in recent tripadvisor reviews. Over the days of my stay I had several Pizzas... More

I don't like to give stinking reviews, but I'm afraid in this case I'd be lying if I didn't. First of all, a few words about the setting - the Safare resort (in which the Riviera sits) is across the road from the river, the banks of which have become an unofficial rubbish dump. Very unpleasant and a real mosquito... More

The food and service at this restaurant were excellent. It is not sophisticated. It is a small family owned business with great food. It is slightly outside of the town centre so take a cab, but it is well worth the trip. We tried pizza, ravioli, and dessert. All were excellent. Home made authentic Italian at a good price. The...

The Riviera is already my referent point for a real Italian pizza experience. It is perfectly cooked in a wooden fire oven, topped with a lot of mozzarella. But this place is good also for pasta and main course. Recommended all pastas, grilled fish and meat. Do not forget to meringata for dessert...it is to die for. On Sunday it... More

What a great find. My love of quality pizzas was rewarded by going to this restaurant...We found it by accident and decided to give it a go and it didn't disappoint. The base was great and the toppings were generous without the grease !!!! Recommended Highly. Happy Travels, Richard and Graeme
