Not a fancy place. Store front byob which seats about 40. Very attentive and friendly service and good food - did not think the food was great, but certainly nothing wrong with it. For example, my chicken dish came with home made gnocchi. They were light, but bland. Chicken on the bone was mixed. The dark meat pieces were falling... More

Went with a friend for dinner last Sunday. Everything was fantastic! We had burrata and clams to start and then split a balsamic chicken entree. Was a great meal from beginning to end and the service was spot on. We will be back again.

We went there with friends day before yesterday. It is a small restaurant. Its a byob . Authentic Italian food. Every dish we ordered was so flavorful. I wanted to keep having more. The chicken Murphy was so delicious. The mozzarella cheese was so light and flavorful. The lady who served us was absolutely delightful . Definitely going back again.

This is a small family own restaurant. food is prepare after you order. very authentic, delicious Italian food. Here is a twist. Make sure you go to the right restaurant. They share parking lot with another La Riviera Trattoria. (not affiliated) I havent try that one. but really recommend La Riviera Gastronomia.

I have been a customer for many years. The new décor has transformed it into a more modern, clean and bright restaurant, however, the food is always consistent and outstanding. Everything is fresh and homemade. The food reminds me of my grandmother's cooking. The service by Christine and Domenico is always top notch. I would recommend this restaurant if you... More

Came in for dinner as we have for many years- the owners have changed and price went up but food still good and service great so this is what matters - they make great chicken merengo and salad primavera and an awesome dinner for two which I must say used to cost 16 dollars now close to 30 but worth...

I read the reviews of this place on TA and on Yelp and everyone raved, so I expected a lot, not with respect to the setting, but with respect to the service and the food. After having dinner here I have mixed feelings about both. First, as to the service: I called ahead for a reservation for Saturday night. I... More

I read all the reviews, most of which were obviously positive, but was really surprised at the negative ones. My wife and I have been coming here on average once a week for the past 8 months and we've been fortunate enough to have dined at many of the finest restaurants around the world, including in Paris and Rome, so...
