RivaBella Ristorante

What is RivaBella Ristorante?

It's the other, more spacious and beautiful new restaurant of chef and co-owner Gino Angelini, of Angelini Osteria!

We simply have to go and enjoy the old classics from Angelini Osteria, including the famous Spinach Lasagna, along with brand new dishes not served at Angelini Osteria at Gino's new restaurant in West Hollywood.

The LA Times writes:"...Dishes from RivaBella chef-partner Angelini include: housemade saffron tagliatelle and prosciutto ragu; squid ink crab ravioli with sea beans and lobster sea urchin sauce; crostino with chicken liver pate and marinated cannellini beans; and grilled cuttlefish salad with arugula and pomegranate. The menu also includes signature items from Angelini Osteria, including the lasagne Nonna Elvira, with layers of housemade spinach pasta, meat sauce and ricotta. Studio Collective designed the restaurant, an indoor-outdoor space that combines the sleek with "rustic Tuscan" and includes a 2,800-square-foot outdoor dining area, wine cave and private dining that accommodates up to 50 people."

    My food was very good as was service. The dining room is beautifully designed, spacious and comfortable which is to say, its nothing like the tiny, uncomfortable room at Angelini Osteria. We could even have an easy to hear conversation! Let's give a hand to fabric and upholstery! But, though we liked Rivabella we didn't LOVE it. At these prices there should be something like rapture with something on the plate. We didn't get that, but it was good. Very interesting cocktail list, too. Mine had Hennessy, Pear Liqueur and Fresh Blackberry. Yum! Pleasant companions and conversation, too. Thanks for coming you guys!
