The patio is very nice, although there's a fountain that's a little noisy. Service is very good without hovering. Unfortunately, the food was not quite as good as we remembered from several years ago. It's still good but not great, and if you want to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine, this is a lovely setting for it. The salads were very good, but the fish dishes were just OK - the sauce overpowered the fish.

This is a decent-enough italian restaurant with a pretty patio. We ate there a bit late, so the place was nearly empty, but even so the service was slow but friendly. Food was just ok; that we just got back from Italy may not have helped our perceptions. A good choice on a pretty day if you just to while away the afternoon.

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. Nice garden setting, very charming especially at night.

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 service was so slow.Our server Pablo was good humored, but worked mostly by himself in taking orders and serving food.
This place did not Wow us.
