Fodor's Review

The impressive panorama from their Zattare terrace attracts travelers yearning for a view, and the Riviera certainly offers that. Choose from contemporary takes on a variety of traditional Venetian dishes, including calf's liver with figs; "guitar string" pasta with shrimp, tiny green beans, and mint; and venison with blueberry sauce. A regional wine list is well matched to the cuisine; don't be surprised if the owner stops by to be sure you're enjoying your meal. Perhaps suited more to travelers than locals (who never worry about a view), while pleasing, the Riviera is definitely a splurge (note the €6 cover).

Don't ever be 10-15 minutes late to this over rated restaurant, they will charge your credit card you have to leave to make a reservation and refuse to serve you. We had the hotel call them to let them know we were running 10 minutes late. We got lost walking there which people that have been to Venice understand how easy that is to do. We called them and told them we were still 5 minutes away. They told us they could not seat us and they are charging

our credit card. We tries to make the reservation for the following day for lunch or dinner they refused. There are so many nice places in Venice to eat you don't need to go to this place.
