Le Servite Situated in a small village (San Giorgio di Arco) 5 mins drive north of Riva, "Osteria Le Servite" was a great find and away from the traditional tourist restaurants. Overlooking the vineyards, the food was outstanding and the option of a different wine from the region with each course added to the dining experience. We will definitely be back!
