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!!!
Amazing. From the start. The food is just perfect. A very good choice of wines by the glass. On this occasion we had a bottle (the last one unfortunately ) of Venice great white blend and a couple of random Italian reds by the glass. Focaccia obviously, gnocchi, tunna, risotto, and two more plates to end with a marvelous pannacotta and the best espresso that I’ve had in Miami for a long long time. I’m a fan, so I’ll keep coming. Please keep up the excelent work you do guys.
Love the food, great ambiance, background music. Service was really good!
Interesting menu and delicious food. Nice wine list. Good service. Sitting outside very pleasant.
We were new to this area of mid town Miami, and we were expecting a bit dressier atmosphere when we booked the reservation. however, it was walking distance from our hotel and we chose to stay. AND we are so glad that we did! I cannot tell you how absolutely great the food was. Fresh pasta, octopus salad and perfectly grilled steak. We would revisit this restaurant again.
Excellent Italian place ! Will be back soon . Recomend .
Amazing really Italian food and service
Ho fatto uno strappo alla mia regola di non mangiare italiano all’estero, incuriosita dalle recensioni e convinta dalle foto dei piatti proposti. Incredibile come, pur essendo dall’altra parte del mondo, siamo riusciti a sentirci a casa! La “fugassa” come a Genova, la focaccia col formaggio eccezionale, la pasta, fatta a mano, più che ottima in tutte le sue declinazioni. Buoni anche i dolci. Nostro figlio di 5 anni super contento di poter mangiare il suo piatto preferito: la pasta al pesto! Davvero una deliziosa sorpresa durante il nostro soggiorno a Miami!
Amazing food and great service.
stayed in Mid town Miami for just one night and was so lucky to find this place. the BEST pastas, very authentic, felt like I was eating in Italy. I will definitely be back!!
Enjoyed it very much. Will be back for casual lunch or dinner.
One of my favorites. Food and service never disappoint. They see me once a month, at least.
Loving it each and every time !
Muy rico y agusto! Altamente recomendable para algo más privado.
Paulo and Fabio are wonderful hosts
Yasmin, our waitress, was spot on. The food was great from the appetizer to the dessert. Fabio, the manager, gave us a lot of destinations in Italy that we can’t wait to see. It is always a great time when we come here.
