This was a great place! I loved their pasta and their bread was warm and freshly baked. Their sauces had the perfect amount of spices and their servers were polite and friendly.

I've been to Rivoli several times and am only treated well if I'm with a friend of mine whose parents are long and loyal customers. Otherwise, the whole atmosphere is very snobby and the waiters are terrible. One time we booked a

Rivoli is not to be missed!!! Each dish is prepared with soul and elegance. It really seems as if the chef takes pride in each dish they turn out. The pumpkin gnocchi appetizer, chicken two ways and gingerbread cake are DEEELIIISH!!!!

Rivoli is my favorite restaurant in the East Bay. The portobello mushroom fritters never disappoint, and most of the menu is very well executed. It is not Chez Panisse or Olivetto -- and does not try to be. But if you want interesting

Decent food but not much flare or pizzaz. Definitely not a good value. Would feel better if they hadn't charged as much. Appetizers and drinks were excellent. Main courses and dessert were pretty good. Service was fine but not memorable.

I've been to Rivoli twice, and each time, the food flavors were perfect, and I don't use that word lightly. Moreover, all the flavors in each dish complement each other. There were several times during each meal that I simply withdrew

Pros: Food , Prices, Dining experience

I have been a devoted fan of Rivoli since it opened, but after several disappointing meals there recently, I don't plan on going back.

The food can still be very good, though less dependably now.

The food is well executed and imaginative, the service is attentive without being overbearing, the decor is nice, and in the evening, the raccoon parade through the picture window is a treat.

Editorial from

The unassuming exterior of this little treasure on the Berkeley/Albany border belies the enticing aromas and flavors that wait inside. For instance, the staff can't remove certain menu items like the portobello mushroom fritters with lemon…
