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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Best meal I have had in a long time in Miami. It's a nice feeling to get your money's worth. Miami has a lot of hype, where most of the time, it is not true. This place is deserving of hype.
