Hands down the best Italian restaurant I have been to in the United States. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and never been disappointed. The menu is more Northern Italian. Wine selections are excellent. Pastas are superb. Entrees are uniformly memorable. Desserts are consistently good. The service is attentive and expert. Pietro, the owner, is knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming, and... More

After what feels like a million years living in Glen Cove, my mother and I finally tried this long-standing Italian restaurant on Father's Day. It was wonderful! From the little aperitifs that appeared on the table to the bread to the salad and main course, everything was well made and lovingly presented. In a age where service people are scare... More

I have been to this restaurant at least a dozen times in the last year and have never had a bad meal. The service is continental and professional and the food is superb.

The waitstaff is knowledgeable and recognized us and were solicitous towards our non English speaking guests. We had a very good meal with the renowned garlic toast. The prices are... More

We attended a party there on a Sunday afternoon, I was expecting a run of the mill lunch and was pleasantly surprised! The crab cake appetizer was delicious, not full of breadcrumbs with a little crab, it was crab with little breadcrumb! The penne ala vodka was al dente and the veal was so tender you didn't need a knife!... More

Went here because we were curious. Had heard it was good Italian. We had to wait for everything - drinks, apps, dinner. The Maitre'D tried to apologies - he said they had too many customers tonight. Any way, We have no plans on returning.

We have dined at Riviera Grill over the years and have always had a delightful meal. The menu is Northern Italian and prepared by a chef with love and a discriminating palette. We started the evening with a Kir Royale that was reasonably priced. For appetizers, I had the Mozzarella Caprese and my husband had the stuffed shrimp which he... More
