We’ve had wine pairing dinners at Dill in Reykjavik and Test Kitchen in Capetown which were phenomenal. Riviera in Venice did not disappoint.

It was with great anticipation that we dined at Riviera for our Anniversary while in Venice. The pre-dinner glass of wine was a mouthful and things continued downhill from there. We each opted for the 7 course fish dinner. Sadly, while each course was tasty...More
