Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pleasantly surprised by how welcoming the staff were as for the entire duration of the dinner they were forward coming and took all nuances of comfort and well-being in mind as it felt truly genuine The dining experience was marvelous as the menu is simple...but yet has much to provide. While any of their dining options would exceed your expectations in terms of taste and quality, I would want to give special praise to their dessert menu, especially their Gingerbread cheesecake while pairing it with a Portwine. Just excellent. Would recommend this to anyone seeking great service and excellent qualityMore

Very average food and terrible dessert. Absolutely inedible - a dry, old cake that is difficult to nibble even with a fork. When we dared to tell the waiter, he became inadequate. stated that he likes, so it is a matter of taste. After which...he took offense and left without even saying goodbay when we left. 113 euros and it turns out that the opinion of the guests does not matter if the waiter likes it, although he was not the one who paid 113 euros!!!More

Visited this little "italian' last night. Martinelli is a family restaurant run by a friendly Latvian family. We were delighted with everything we chose from the small menu. We had the meat plate and then Ravioli to share. Thought the Ravioli was outstanding. We then...had Osso Buco for our mains followed by Creme Brulee and Coconut Ice Cream. The food was washed down with an excellent Italian Primitivo. Service was prompt and attentive. This is undoubtedly a top restaurant. Don't miss it if you are in R igaMore

They truly deserve every 5* review there is on this app. No matter how many times we return, the food and wine never disappoints. However, their atmosphere and level of attention to hospitality is Michelin-worthy. Definitely worth a visit for romantic dinners and family get...togethers.More

My most favorite restaurant in the whole world ❤️ Traveled a lot of countries, been at lot of great restaurants, but this place is still my number one. I'm the most loyal customer of this place for six years now. Love at first sight. Food...is fantastic, wine list is remarkable, owners/waiters is so welcoming. I live in different country, 400km away, and still the only reason I always trying to visit Riga is Martinelli restaurant. I hope you will live and thrive for a many many more years. You are the best for me ❤️More

Encouraged by excellent reviews we booked a table from this place. We were not starving, so we chose antipasto plate, eel fillet and bread. The food was ok, only ok. Vegetables were quite cold and the eel portion small. The house truffle butter tasted a...bit stale. The service was quick but somehow a bit awkward. So at this point they did not reach their goal.More

Fantastic food and service! The meat platter was amazing (duck Rilette was superb). The deer steak for main was by far the highlight. Great selection of wines and really fun menu.
