    Thank you, Divine. It was also one of our favorites in Venice -- we first went there in '93, long before Monica and Luca took over. I wonder if they'll stay in the business or take a deserved break???

      I can't find any mention of the sale on the site you linked to, and I did look on the Italian, not English, site. There is no mention of the sale on the Riviera's own web site. We had planned to return there next month so I would really like to know if this is true.

        It is unfortunately true! I learned this in an email sent to the owners themselves to loyal customers.
        If you want confirmation you can send them an email info@ristoranteriviera.it
        It was my favorite restaurant on the Zattere, classy, ​​family, and very Italian!
        At the other end of the Zattere Lineadombra but it remains more expensive and not quite the same atmosphere. !

          One more word! The restaurant sold this does not mean it is permanently closed but the owners will change and I do not know if they will open in a month;

            will this mean a change in the kitchen?

              Necessarily because Monica Scarpa was in the kitchen!
