This summer the Four Seasons Silicon Valley in Palo Alto has a really fun pop-up in their patio off of Quattro restaurant. Riviera is an Italian-themed space with super cute decor, delicious drinks, and Italian dishes and desserts. I had so much fun doing a little staycation here, enjoying the pool on the roof, and spending an evening at Riviera. It seriously made me miss Italy (find all my Italy posts here), where I had just spent the last month, and especially Cinque Terre. We were just standing at the scenic viewpoint where the vespa backdrop was shot in Manarola. ?
While Riviera has its own special menu, you can also order off of the usual Quattro menu as well. We did a mix of both and enjoyed some delicious pasta dishes as well as their rack of lamb. The soft serve is definitely not to be missed for dessert! In addition to the photo-worthy decor, there are also cute touches like adorable postcards that you can write on, and the Four Seasons will mail out for you. Boungiorno from the Riviera!
If you’re staying at the Four Seasons Palo Alto, I also have to give you a few of my fav recommendations for room service for breakfast. Their chilaquiles and bread pudding french toast are BOMB. Seriously, so good and such a treat!
Riviera would also be the perfect spot for all my techie friends who work in the South Bay and are looking for a cute, al fresco happy hour spot after work. Riviera is open through September 2nd, 2019!
Thank you to the Four Seasons for such a lovely stay!
