We stopped for a light, mid-afternoon lunch. The pizza and salad were perfect (and I'm picky). Easy to tell that this is a quality establishment.

Our first time here at Rivergate location. Excellent service, great food and nice wine. I asked them to create a dish with veal and Gorgonzola and they did ! Will definitely be coming back.

We had not reserved and were taken upstairs to a room which became a little noisy but, the server and the meal more than made up for it. Excellent service, attentive and informative. Both meals ordered were delicious. Would go again.

Really nice restaurant, upscale, romantic, but still cozy interior (really great for a date). The service was good and the food was great. The prices are a tiny bit high, but I would definitely go back.

We were staying near the Byward market and looking for a nice place to have dinner. I would highly recommend this place if you like Italian food. It's a bit more upscale than many of the places near the market but the food and service...More
