We had a late dinner here on a Saturday night. It was a lovely night to sit outside and eat. And that's the time you should come to Riacci--most tables are outside with a lovely fountain of a naked woman holding up a washing machine!!...More

Outdoor seating in a lovely open area with a fountain. Nice selection of entrees. We thoroughly enjoy our meals of fish and pasta. Salads were also excellent. Very relaxing and a great place to dine and catch up with friends.

Enjoyable outdoor ( and indoor) dining. Delicious authentic Southern Italian food. Everything is fresh and perfectly seasoned. The canneloni is to die for. The bruschetta is fresh and taste like summer in Italy.

Pasta sorrentina,al granchio, ravioli al salmone... you name it the pasta was excellent. The appetizers, at least the salmon and the fried calamari were not very interesting but the deserts made up for it: the hazelnut gelato, panna cotta and Canoli made up for it....More

Being from the northeast I found the lush garden setting of the patio beautiful. The food was pretty good and we had good service. We lingered a bit but they didn't seem to mind. The dishes are very rich.

My husband and I attended a corporate function here. We enjoyed walking thru the courtyard, statues and displayed items. We sat inside. The food was OK. The wine was OK. When our group was seated, Cafe Riace wasn't full. I am not sure why the...More
