Nice looking place. Welcoming was none. Place was not busy but it took too long to be waited on. No lasagna. Bread was lukewarm and stale. Butter hard. Caesar Salad good. Spouse liked the fettuccine Bolognese but I thought the sauce was below par. Veal piccatta tender and sauce tender. Tiramisu was decent. Just an average place. Try some place else .

We have had dinner here many times. Recently returning from Italy, the restaurant matches any place we ate in Italy. Food is wonderful as is the service Wine list is substantial and waiters are helpful in picking out a wine. Service is timed properly. We always have a good time and food when we visit Riviera in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our favorite go-to restaurant. Solid value, good wines, friendly servers. Specials with seasonal food every night. Somewhat difficult to find tucked in a corner of a strip mall.

From the outside, this restaurant is not attractive-sited in the corner of a parking lot on a busy street. We were welcomed as soon as we entered and accommodated immediately. Fortunately, we arrived early, because the place was very busy when we left. That is always a good sign.

Everyone ordered a pasta dish, and all were fresh and excellent. The desserts were surprisingly good-and I'm not a big dessert person. The wait staff were attentive. It was a very pleasant experience.

I would definitely recommend this for Italian in Santa Rosa over another restaurant that I reviewed previously.
