Two of us had dinner here and both left happy and stuffed to the gills as the portions are generous. We started off splitting the Calamari appetizer which was superb and then the two of us went for the Veal and the Salmon Dinners. Both (as we ate out of each others plate) were delicious. The Salmon was great and the Veal was the best I ve ever had. I should also mention the service was great and the bread(s) with the dipping sauce before our appetizer were top notch as well.
Wine bar – Great little fine dining place where the menu is huge and the prices are not outrageous. Wine is also of high quality.
horrible creepy owner – The food was alright but it costs a fortune. I understand paying a lot for good food and good service but if you don't speak spanish forget about eating here... Your going to spend at least 120 for two people and the owner is extra creepy always touching you inappropriately and asking if everything is all right like 50 times and yelling at his staff. Stay away from this place with a vengance. The owner had to write the other two reveiws... what a weirdo.
Don't waste your time here – Worst service ever, Poor quailty food for a fine dining place. Do not waste your money or your time here.
food, wine and service – The food was awesome! There was not one thing served that I did'nt like. If you enjoy classic foods this is the spot. The menu was a rustic twist on classic italian . Since moving from San Francisco To the Los Angeles area my palate has been very spoiled finding it hard to find really good eats. If you lived in and dined in the bay area you know what I mean. This restaurant The Riviera is to die for.
The customer service is at its highest quality . The staff is very friendly and accomodating which now a days is pretty much half the battle in fine dining. These boys were over the top!
The wine, spectacular! Who ever selects the wines has exceptional taste. This is by far my favorite restaurant and guess what I'll be back !
Nice little place in Calabasas by the people from Tuscany in Westlake Village – This restaurant is by the same people of Tuscany in Westlake Village. I went here with a large group for a work holiday lunch. It's a nice little restaurant with friendly service and decent food. If I could recommend one thing from the entire menu it would be the Limoncello cake! Even if you are not the biggest fan of lemon, you will love this dessert! It's most and very flavorful. Everyone was fighting over it. Not sure if they always have it though.
Some other standouts were the Slow-braised short rib and the Butterfish (a special).
flawless execution – I have not had a bad meal here, and cannot say enough about the place. The fish dishes are simple CaliFrancoItalo creatons that are refreshing and fulfilling. Reasonble wine list.
Excellent Food, Amazing Service!! – I just went here for a relative's birthday and I felt the food was wonderful! Every single dish that came out was delightful. Not only that, but the service was impeccable. They even made my mother happy, which is not easy to do! She has a lot of restrictions on her diet, and they satisfied every one of her concerns and even made her something that wasn't on the menu! I recommend the Sea-Bass, the Rack of Lamb, or the Salmon.
