We had a fantastic dinner with an impeccable service and an excellent sommelier who advised us about the right wine according to our choices in the menu . Probably among the top restaurants in Clifton.

Went with my friends for a Girls Night Out and it did not disappoint. Casual atmosphere with crisp table linens, exceptional bread (important if you are from North Jersey), delicious pasta and fresh seafood. Never felt rushed, service was attentive but not overbearing. Only 5 miles from me and I've missed out all these years, but no longer. Can't wait... More

Best food in clifton nj. Small, hidden gem. Food is fresh and they are so accommodating. Little highway storefront next to larger restaurant with almost the same name so be careful. Only accepts cash. No cc. Prepare to wait in weekends. Only about 10 tables but they do takeout so not to worry! Also has frozen entrees and daily specials!... More

Excellent restaurant for people who eat gluten free and people who don't. I have Celiacs disease and it can often be anxiety provoking to go out to eat. The owner was really accommodating, super friendly and I wasn't worried about any cross contamination. If I lived closer, I'd go every weekend!

I've known this place for 9 years. I find a consistent quality in this restaurant. Also one of the rare places you can find food for people with certain foods allergies. They recently added more parking space for patrons. It's pretty convenient to go there now.

This is one of my favorite local spots. The food is consistently good and the service is generally good as well, although they sometimes do focus more on larger groups than couples. I definitely recommend coming here, as you won't be disappointed. AND they have gluten free meals, if one has dietary restrictions.

This is the second time we've enjoyed a meal at this restaurant in Clifton, NJ, and both times we were extremely impressed. My husband and I enjoyed gluten-free veal dishes. Others with us had a ham/cheese/anchovy appetizer that they raved about. As a dessert fanatic, I can highly recommend the tartufo. It was likely the best tartufo I've ever had.... More

We just left our NEW favorite restaurant. The gluten free dairy free veal parmigian was incredible. My wife's fish was perfect. Maria, who runs the restaurant with love and attention to detail is wonderful. If you have allergies and want the best Italian food around, here is where you need to go.

La Riviera Trattoria offers excellence all around. Its service, menu, pricing, and wines are all superb! And, for those who need gluten free menus, La Riviera Trattoria is the place to go. There is a designated gluten free kitchen as well as designated gluten free plates and silverware. There is absolutely zero cross contamination! So, for those of you that... More

La Riviera Trattoria is a popular restaurant, in my neighborhood city, Clifton, NJ. Frankly, I was a little disappointed. I have been to much better Italian Restaurants, in the area. For what they charge, I though the portion sizes, were not very generous. The food, was nothing outstanding, just OK. the service was also on the slow side. I don't... More
