With its the Austro-Hungarian heritage it is easy to see why RDG is home to this Germanic themed restaurant. Although a welcome break from pizza and pasta, I felt that the staff were a little cold for my liking but the food, drinks and Location were spot on.

Dear Guest,
you are absolutely right, Riva and the surroundings have an Austria-Hungarian heritage which certainly adds to its amazing landscape.
We are glad you enjoyed our specialities, the drinks and the location, even though we were surprised to read that the staff were ‘a little cold’. We usually receive great appreciation for our welcoming way towards our customers.
Let’s hope you will have other opportunities to get back to this part of Lake Garda and, why not, come back to our restaurant, as we are sure you will appreciate not only the food but also our friendly atmosphere.
Our very best wishes,

Ristorante Kapuziner am See

Strange to find a Bavarian style restaurant in the middle of a typical Italian touristic town, or is it just me who finds it strange. After all pizzerias are found everywhere and nobody finds that strange. Anyway, just been there for coffee and drinks so can't judge the quality of the food. The menu however offers Italian dishes and a selection of typical Bavarian food.

Dear Henri,
strange you consider this 'strange'. As you probably know, our area was part of the Habsburg Empire until 1918. Moreover, South Tyrol borders Trentino and it is a German-speaking area. So a German influence does not sound unfamiliar to us at all and our Bavarian cuisine is usually much appreciated both by the locals as well as by tourists.
You were probably looking for an Italian café: sorry for that. Our place is so much renowed to drink excellent beers!
Let's hope next time you will have a try of our typical dishes, you may discover they are so tasty.
Best wishes,

Ristorante Kapuziner am See

Wonderful German restaurant with a great choice of beer.

We tried it out as a party of five and have to say the food was wonderful but a little heavy for the hot weather in August.

Wheat beers were excellent.

We had two of the pan fried meat and rosti with the kids trying the ribs and Wiener Schnitzel which were all very good.

Definitely worth a visit.

This is a very nice restaurant, with friendly atmosphere and tasty food. The service is quick, the portions are big. They have their own farm, so the vegetable salad is just perfect! One plateful is more than enough for two people (and even three!). I do recommend beef with onion! You will not regret! The beer is tasty, too. And they stay open quite late.
