Riviera Mediterranean Cuisine is  a Dongan Hills dining spot with unique fare.  It's menu boasts of Greek,  Italian and Albanian specialties at its finest.  Frank Beqiri is the executive chef who sits at the helm at one of our borough’s best kept secrets. The warm and welcoming eatery, that opened its doors to diners in March of last year, features a sprawling bar — where dining is permitted — etched with an eye-catching, panoramic mural of the Mediterranean, and lounge seating that accommodates up to 50 people.

The main dining room, replete with a wine wall and dance floor, seats up to 90 guests or a standing reception of 135 guests. Beqiri says: “Riviera is a little piece of the Mediterranean right here on Staten Island. At Riviera we want our guests to experience the Mediterranean flavors that will make you feel as if they have taken a trip and are eating dinner right on the Mediterranean Sea.”
