Fodor's Review

Italian-inspired dishes using fresh, mostly organic California ingredients star on a menu that changes every three weeks. Typical meals include line-caught fish, pastas, and inventive offerings such as Rivoli's trademark portobello fritters with aioli. Desserts might include pear granita with gingersnaps or a refreshing Meyer-lemon tart. A lovely back garden and attentive service add to the overall appeal, though some diners find the tables are too closely spaced. The

small front bar is a cozy spot for a drink and dessert, but it's standing-room-only on a busy night.
