A page turns!
The wonderful "Ristorante Riviera" Monica Scarpa and Luca a has been sold.
Here (in Italian) little word goodbye owners.

"Carissimi clienti ed amici il ristorante riviera cambia proprietari, Monice e Luca hanno venduto.
due righe per ringraziare tutti quelli che ci hanno apprezzato e voluto bene in questi 12 anni.

  1. 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
      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;

        1. re: divinecomedie

          will this mean a change in the kitchen?

          1. re: jen kalb

            Necessarily because Monica Scarpa was in the kitchen!

    2. 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???
