RivaBella Restaurant Review

: The wood-topped tables of RivaBella suggest the setting of a simple Italian taverna, but this is an impressive, sprawling space encompassing a brick room with vaulted ceilings and a beautiful patio crowned by a retractable roof. There’s also a sophisticated bar area that deserves to be a meeting place in itself. The restaurant is the result of a partnership with chef Gino Angelini (Angelini Osteria), who offers a panoply of expected Italian dishes, and Innovative Dining Group (IDG --- BOA Steakhouse, Katana, Sushi Roku). A few Angelini Osteria signatures are represented, such as lasagne Nonna Elvira. Look for daily soup, pasta and pizza specials along the lines of a white pizza with housemade sausage, braised fennel and Fresno chili. Tiramisu and cannoli provide classic endings to your meal. The wine list emphasizes California and Italian varietals.
