Without any doubt, Riviera is the best Italian restaurant I have visited outside Italy. The owners Luca and Rita, who are Italians, alternate in the kitchen for lunch and dinner and this provides the classic Italian touch and attention to the quality and presentation of the dishes. Luca's brother, Giampaolo in the dining room provides a warm welcome and a... More

We had the lasagna and it was terrific, with a large serving too. Delicious meat sauce. The Caesar's salad and two kinds of bread were excellent. Ask for oil and vinegar to spread on your bread. Decor is Italian, and includes colorful cycling jerseys from the owner's personal collection. Prices were very reasonable and wait staff very attentive. Linen tablecloths... More

Not sure what happened but they weren't on their game today. We stopped in for lunch because of the reviews and were very disappointed. We had the lunch chicken salad and the brick chicken. The salad presentation was nice but the chicken was very dry and overcooked. The brick chicken was drowning in greasy oily sauce which was needed as... More

I found this restaurant because we were going to the movies and it was on the way. I'm glad I found it. I've been coming back ever since. The service is wonderful. Food is fresh. I decided I wanted to celebrate my birthday lunch here and I'm glad we came. I had the Limoncello sorbet and it was fabulous. I... More

Riviera's is my go-to lunch spot in Santa Rosa. I've never had a bad meal nor experience. Their pasta dishes are fresh, genuine and delightful....my favorite is the Carbonara. Enjoy!

Great food and place to meet for lunch meeting. Introduced this location to two locals. Ordered the Antipasto plate for starters, nice presentation and great flavors. Enjoyed the Ceasar Salad with Grilled Shrimp (cooked perfectly). Everyone enjoyed their meal and meeting was positive.

Riviera is in our neighborhood, just about, and is our go-to place. I've often reviewed it, and am here to say the salmon is first rate, the vegetables are always yummy, the service is excellent, the Italian wines are always wroth a taste-- and the desserts are better than ever. I often have had the creme brulee, and love it.... More

we went with friends, and came from Napa. Food was good but felt a little bit pricey. Service was excellent and if you lived in the area would go again. Corkage at $10 was a bargain compared to Napa prices. Would not get the lasagna as it didn't resemble anything I'd seen before. Tiramisu was tops. My spaghetti w/ shrimp... More
