It is an excellent place for an upscale experience. The food was great. The service is very professional. Went there for dinner and everybody enjoyed their meals. It is a little dark, but that is part of the atmosphere. It is comfortable and quiet place.

It was our first visit to Riviera Grill. The friendly atmosphere started as soon as our car was valet parked. Upon entering, our reservation for 8PM on Saturday evening was honored and we were seated immediately. Our water promptly greeted us and asked for our beverage orders. We called in advance and asked if we could bring special wine. Although... More

This is the same family that owned Il Gattopardo and AL Lanterna in Manhattan in the theatre district. They have brought their level of expertise in fine dining back home to Long Island. Northern Italian, delicious, top quality food. Do not miss!

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

We (my husband and family) have been coming here for years. We most recently brought my sister in law and another indirect in law to dinner on a Saturday eve. 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
