You know that you are in for a treat at an Italian restaurant when you go with an Italian and the restaurant is full of Italians. That was the case hear. The group that I came with said that this is the "Italian Embassy"! We had a party of 8 for a business dinner and our table was ready and... More

For ages I had been missing out! Friendly and impeccably prepared Italian food. Great seeing and convenient to all parts of town. Small outdoor seating area, but inside also has wonderful ambiance.

We brought a party of 10 to Riviera Ristorante and found everything we were looking for to celebrate my wife's special birthday. The food was authentic Italian, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was casual and fun. We even brought our own birthday cake, which they served with lit candles and ice cream after dimming the restaurant. The wine... More

While visiting friends in Santa Rosa I used Trip Advisor to search for Italian Cuisine in the immediate area and chose Riviera because of their reviews. We were not disappointed. Wonderful food at very affordable prices. I recommend reservations as the restaurant filled up very quickly and appeared to be by reservations. The waitstaff was friendly and responsive to all...

My wife and I went here recently for our anniversary dinner, and the food did not disappoint. First the food. We started with the Burrata with Prosciutto di Parma, which was simple yet flavorful and quite delicious. It was a great start to the meals as it wasn't heavy enough to fill us up for the entrees to come. Our... More

We could not believe how noisy it was with the conversations going on in the packed restaurant. We had a hard time conversing because we couldn't hear each other over the noise. When our waitress was telling us the specials we could only hear a few of the words she said. We did enjoy our food which we got quickly... More

On our first night in Santa Rosa we fancied an Italian meal and our Airbnb hosts recommended Riviera. The service was fast class and the food was fresh and very tasty. Our waitress made us aware of all of the specials on offer. All in all, this offered great value for money and we would definitely return next time we're... More

Looking for something Italian. Came here on a recommendation. Food well prepared, beautiful and delicious. Waitress did not know what a secundo was. So as an American place would give it an A+. As an Italian place it gets a C-.

Had reservations for two and were seated in the front right inside dining area just below the open window to the kitchen. Table for 2. As soon as we sat down, I become aware of a high-pitched ear-piercing whine in the ear on the side of the kitchen window. Thinking it was just me, I hesitated asking my dinner companion... More

Very busy (Monday evening!) but the server brought us a complimentary (and good!) tomato bruschetta as the wait was a little more than normal. Great veal picatta, and the prawn and scallop combination perfectly cooked ..not easy...usually one or other is overcooked. Problem? the wine list no longer corresponds to the one on the website.
