On the border of Berkeley and Albany in a rather small storefront, with tastefully serene decor and a lovely plant-filled courtyard, which you see through the wall of windows on the back wall. Their "signature" portobello mushroom fritters were good, but portobellos don't have much taste, actually (compared to morels, for example). For the entree, I didn't like the way that they spread the succotash over the plate and then piled the au gratin po

Surprisingly affordable very well prepared Cal/Med. The back room is beautiful. The noise level is tolerable. Its a little out of the way but if you are in the area, its a top choice.

Best restaurant in the bay area. Consistently superb food, drinks, and desserts. They do the most amazing things with chickpeas. I often order their vegetarian dishes because they do better vegetarian than anywhere else. Worth the long drive, if you're on the other side of the bay area. And affordable -- much pricier bay area restaurants never come close to Rivoli's quality of execution.

I have never had a bad meal at Rivoli. Come to think of it, I have never had a meal that wasn't great. The food is excellent and the dining room, though a bit small and sometimes cramped, has a wonderfully romantic feel. One of my favorite things about Rivoli is the wine list. Nearly every bottle is under $100 and most are under $50. The somelier doesn't try to overwhelm you with a long wine list, but rather has chosen ~4 pages of full bottles and 1 page of half bottles that all pair wonderfully with the food.

The lighted garden in the back casts a nice glow on the small dining area. Prices are good for the quality; the lasagna and pork tenderloin were great.
