Wonderful service and food.
This place was great. Our server, Carla, was very helpful and knew the menu very well. The food was spectacular as well.
We had a gathering of cousins who have not seen each other for a while. We were loud and noisy and constantly talking, until the food came. Once we started eating, there was silence. The food was absolutely tasty and delightfully presented. The service was excellent
We drove up and I was concerned that the food was not going to be good as the location and decor were average. I was wrong! The food was outstanding and the service exceptional! Their menu says something about the focaccia bread being addictive and I laughed thinking that’s bold to say. Again I was wrong...it was addictive! We had FRESH pompano with delicious veggies and sautés artichokes. Other guests in my group had salads, zucchini, calamari, pasta and tiramisu. All delicious!!
Great atmosphere and delicious food ! Server was very personable and gave good suggestions regarding the menu options! Will def be going back soon!
Excellent service n food! Nice outside area.
Awesome place and awesomw food, finally a focaccia and a pasta as you can taste only at your grandma house! Thank you for everything! The Owner is a great person he also help and walk with us to the taxi. In the Riviera you fell like at home.
Delicious food served by an excellent staff. Our waiter was delightful and our host was friendly without being intrusive. I highly recommend and will no doubt return.
Food was delicious very authentic italian food
Excellent authentic food from Genoa
Great service. Owner is very nice and will talk with you. Food never disappoints.
absolutely ...on the best italian restaurant in town.... fresh food made to perfection according the italian tradition, no imitation no Alfredo sauce ! real italian quality restaurant from the Liguria region , excellent chef, great service , owner engaged and friendly
Cannot miss, the quality of food is always excellent, the service and ambiance is always great.
Let say that being from Genova, I really enjoy the food, but, I never had anything that wasn't good.
If you are tired of chicken and veal parmigiana, with heavy tomato sauce, try something lighter from the Ligurian Riviera and the Mediterranean sea!
The restaurant is simple and cozy! The food is delicious! We loved the focaccia, the artichokes, the minestrone and the thin sliced meat covered with tuna mayo sauce! We’ll be back soon!
Most authentic Italian (Ligurian/Tuscan) food in Miami. Great food and fantastic service.
I love this place. Their focaccia with attaching is something to die for. And a meal in itself with a salad. But a friend and I had the swordfish and the branzino, both cooked to perfection. My husband had the gnocchi with ragú and he loved them. The flourless chocolate cake was a ni e ending to a delicious meal that we downed with a Chianti Classico Reserva.
We were surprised the place was not P.A. Jed, being a Thursday night. Maybe it had to do with the rain...
We will return.
a jewel of a restaurant. Unexpected quality, creativity and taste. Unpretentious, nice layout, rustic feel. We had the codfish and the raviolis in a walnut cream sauce. Both remarkably good. The owner was on site, made us feel welcome. Wait staff top notch, service good. Very pleased with the evening. Will definitely return.
Every thing was okay
Loved this place, but the portions need to be a little larger!
Great authentic Italian food!!! Amazing focaccia 😋
The food was absolutely fabulous! The service was good and the place was quiet cause we went early. Great Italian Sauvignon Blanc was also delicious. I have been there a few times before and this time the food was outstanding.
Went there a wk after of our last visit. This time was much better. Food came out hot. Thanks a lot.
Terrible, the waiters looked like they didn’t want to be there
Went there on a week day. Had apps n main course. Three out of six dishes came out cold. Did not check on the other three. Bad kitchen timing.
Panna cotta was the winner.
Staff wad friendly n fast enough.
The free focaccia was the tastiest thing we had. Not impressed with the ravioli or the gnocchi 😩
Four of us had dinner at Riveria. We returned a second time as the food is so good. The cheese appetizers are outstanding--we've heard they fly the cheese in from Italy each day. Three of us had the veal entree and we all raved about it. I am not Italian but my friend is and says this place is like being in Italy. He could not stop raving about the place.
Mother’s Day celebration
We were in the neighborhood and had been told that the restaurant was pretty good.
Well, let's say it was better than good. I had the Veal and it was excellent. The service was First Class and the owner or manager came by our table repeatedly to make sure we were been taken care of.
The wine list is also well priced. Certainly deserves a return visit.
Brought a group of friends visiting from out of town. Everyone loves it. Fantastic food and always great service.
Great quality food, friendly service, attentive staff
Excellent food and service as always.
Alway great food and service, the owner is always friendly.
Great food as always, Fabio is always ready to help with great suggestion. Also the Pigato wine is back, and if you love white wine you should try it.
Authentic Ligurian cuisine, great service and personal attention by the owner.
Food was good.farfalle with brocolli kind of tasteless.ragu.and wine ok.
They neglected to offer the cake of the nona and the key lime pie in the dessert menu even though they had it.
They were half empty .it was not a matter of being overworked.
Fantastic food. Just really awesome. Obviously they go out of their way to have all fresh and top quality ingredients.
The service and food are always excellent. Good selection of wines.
Great food and beautiful service! We’ll definitely come back!!
Great host, Fabio!
From beginning to end our meal was absolutely delicious. We were a group of 8 and everyone was happy:))
Thank you Fabio!!!
