Good food, nice atmosphere

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... read more

First a warm welcome, then you notice the noise level is up - people are talking and having fun. Next come the flavor - wonderful. My wife enjoyed the seafood risotto while I slowly consumed the lamb shank. Oh almost forgot about the delicious steamed clam appetizer- another flavorful dish. Finished the night with lava cake. Our waiter was informative... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch based on great trip advisor ratings and wow, were they accurate! This was one of the best meals, lunch OR dinner, on a two week trip. I had the scallop salad with fennel (three large grilled scallops) perfectly seasoned and my husband had arugula salad and polenta with wild mushrooms. Nice, good sized... More

This little treasure of imaginative Italian food has been under our nose for a long time and we didn't even know it. What a pleasing discovery for us it was. Food? Extremely well prepared. Service? Outstanding, attentive without being intrusive. The Riviera is now on at the top of our "MUST return to" list!

It is our tradition to have our Christmas Eve and Valentine's dinners at the Riveria, and we are never disappointed. We are always treated like family.

My wife enjoyed the gluten free prawns, pasta and salad at Riviera for New Year's Eve. The team here does an especially excellent job with their menu items. And it is like visiting your family. Just another very fine dining experience.

We were looking for a nice romantic type restaurant with good food. We found it with the Riviera Restaurant. When the locals recommend it, it has to be good. Riviera apparently has a tradition in the Santa Rosa area and definitely gets my endorsement.

I have been to this restaurant at least 1/2 dozen times in the past couple of years. The food has always been good. I particularly like the fried calamariI and the raviolis. The restaurant is quiet enough that you can have a conversation, then again i went for lunch. The parking is easy, the staff is pleasant.

Our favorite pasta restaurant in town. Great sauce. Great house made pasta. And the advice is outstanding.

If you want a nice quiet sit down, this is not the place for you. The place is quite small and cramped, and overall loud and chaotic inside. We (my boyfriend and I) had no "set" server, every single wait staff was somehow involved in our meal, making asking for anything awkward. I ordered a glass of local white wine,... More
