Best focaccia I’ve ever had- both in Italy and outside Italy! My friend had some pasta, and it tasted amazing, too! Save space for the dessert- the size is perfect for a little treat with your espresso. Friendly and attentive service- definitely stop by if you are in Midtown Miami!
We had a nice time at the Riviera focacceria italiana. The food was great. The appetizer Stracciatella was amazing, and the Portofuno Caprese was very good too. Five of us had the Spaghetti Gamberi e Zucchine, and it tasted very good. One of us had the Riviera's Snapper, and he was very satisfied. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the good service.
Quaint homey restaurant. Service was excellent and it seemed as though it was a “family dinner affair” with the staff. The short ribs and snapper were cooked to perfection.
OMG! Everything from their signature pizza to the last bite was unforgettable.
This place is a gem!! Recommended by an Italian friend, I went with high expectations and am happy to say, they did not disappoint. From appetizers to dessert, 5 stars.
Great Authentic Italian Food find!! This place is a gem- Delish, Fresh, Unique, and Family friendly. Service exceptional!!
Outstanding cuisine excellent environment very trendy very organic minimalist feel but beyond all the exceptional taste that beats all
So happy to discover an Italian restaurant that celebrates a region and includes items that are creative. So many of the others seem almost interchangeable. Riviera Focacceria is distinctive.
Great authentic Italian cuisine served by friendly and knowledgeable servers.
Overall a very good experience but the pasta portion was way too small for the price
As good as always
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.
