Lasagna al Pesto
homemade lasagna with besciamel and pesto sauce be prepared!
pan seared red snapper filet, lemon, capers, white wine sauce, mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach
Love the place. Have been quite a few times for lunch and dinner. Their focaccia with strachino is outstanding.
Wines and beer were excellent. Recommended by our waitress (Yazmin?) whose service is always above and beyond.
My husband had the lasagna and I guess since he ordered it piping hot it came to the table with the pasta slightly over cooked.
Will definitely return.
Excellent FRESH food. Nothing is frozen food. All freshly cooked. Very pleasant staff.
Great experience altogether...
We had wonderful service and amazing food! Our waiter gifted us with the caprese as a welcome to Miami (daughter moved here just two days ago). His food recommendations were excellent, wine perfect, and the bread to dip was delicious! We will be back!
So we went to riviera on a Wednesday because on social media it says half off bottles of wine , we get to the location and they said that doesn’t exist anymore even though it’s still on the social media platforms. The waitress would not honor the deal. We decided because of the false advertisement we would just have 1 cocktail and a appetizer out of respect but we left to another location for dinner. Disappointing location and service.
Love the food the ambiance and the staff * five stars
Food, service and wine were great.
Hands down my favorite restaurant in Miami. Great food, awesome service. This place is a gem
We went to Riviera Focacceria Italiana to celebrate our anniversary. We've been many times before. Every meal has been consistent, creative and nicely presented. The service is topnotch.
Henry took care of us for dinner last night. His recommendations were spot on. Our dinner was sublime.
Great italian food!
Riviera Focacceria is a gem that my husband and I have eaten in at least 20 times.
Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious from the minestrone soup to the pizza, homemade pastas, golden fried artichokes, poached octopus carpaccio, fresh fishes, meats and so much more. It would be remiss of me not to mention the complimentary fresh made focaccia and pistachios from Sicily which are in some the menu items. The deserts are light and not overly sweet to compliment the food it follows. The presentation of everything is wonderful as well. This is homestyle Italian cooking at its best.
They have indoor and outdoor seating but we tend to eat indoors because of the lovely ambiance of Genova and the music is an added delight making you feel that you are truly in Italia.
The staff is warm and welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient.
Riviera Focacceria Italiana is 5* quality without 5* prices.
Very good food very nice people thoroughly enjoyable experience
Outstanding neighborhood Italian restaurant. Friendly servers, delicious food and fair prices.
what should have been cold (food and beverage) was hot, and what should have been hot was cold.
Perfect food and service
This is a great place with very good, interesting, light and authentic Italian food! Good wine selection and very good, professional and courteous service. Highly recommended!
Found this place on Open Table. The food was exquisite and the service was great. Portions are fair and not too big. Also the bread isn’t too big either. Great place if you want a bite after shopping.
Good local food
If you are looking for a quiet Italian place, this is it. Moderate prices, typical Italian food and good service.
Great restaurant and stunning food!
If you are looking for a true italian experience that is the place to be!

A hidden gem
The place is fantastic, very cozy. The food is delicious, and the service is outstanding!
Great experience, ambience was outstanding as well as the service. Food was exceptional and a very solid wine list. As important, the food was VERY reasonably priced.
My new favorite restaurant in Miami
I’m living in a hotel until my new place is ready and stumbled on this restaurant by accident. Our server was friendly and just the right amount of attentive. The food was delicious and the serving sizes were perfect...not overwhelming. Even though we’ll live in N. Miami once our place is ready, we’ll be back for dinner again.
Always good! The best Italian in town!
Our waiter, Henry, was attentive, pleasant, knowledgeable and ably assisted us as we had a fine meal with a nice wine selection. The owner, too, was on site and most hospitable.
The food was remarkable, and the signature focaccia was excellent. I had the pink peppercorn, pumpkin seeds and coffee encrusted pork loin filet which surpassed expectations. My wife had the Pansoti al Sugo di Noci The pasta was perfect and the walnut sauce without rival.
We had an appetizer Carpaccio di Rapa, thin slices of roasted red beets with pistachio and goat cheese. Very good.
This is a fine restaurant with very good staff and food. We will return often.
Really enjoyed our dinner. Food wine and service all excellent
Family lunch together

Our server was great and the food was extremely authentic and fresh, will definitely come again!
