  • Riverfront is like the heart of downtown fort lauderdale, there are plenty of restaurants, cool bars and shops. 
  • I was around for when the first brick was laid, then did live remotes on WPLL and WINZ with my radio show (the Liz Wilde Show) at several of the venues here. It was booming and bustling with life, act...  more »
  • Not the Riviera but still a quiet, pleasant walk along the riverside. Some shops, bistros but also empty rental spaces. A river taxi is a pleasant diversion - start at one end, do a walkabout and grab...  more »

  • A complete ghost town now. It was once beautiful and bustling. What a shame. Someone needs to revive it. Location is beautiful
  • Great food, good value in a friendly, unpretentious, family setting just off the Riverwalk. I eat here at least once a week and always leave satisfied. You gotta love pizza dough thrown by a true Italian the old school way.Try the meat roll and it probably won't be your last. Love this place!
  • Sad place. So much potential for a perfect riverside spot, but it seems the economy has claimed some more victims. There are still some shops and restaurants here but the riverside portion is closed, dead and drab. Hope this changes someday.
  • At least I'm not hungry anymore... as opposed to satisfied. They are pricey; at the cusp of good deal and costly. They charge for REFILLS. They have no wait staff. The decor can use a hand from Restaurant Impossible. Their sauce which is the cornerstone of any Italian-styled restaurant since so many plates include it, does not taste fresh. The tables and chairs are this brushed aluminum material; dated, unappealing, & UNCOMFORTABLE. Charging for refils? So-o-o-o-o '80s. We consumers already know that beverages anywhere are severely marked up. That same $1 you charged will buy you a .75¢ canned soda. Hello, I just paid to eat there.... and with so many eateries in the area... I must remember to bring lunch from home.....
  • It's a prime location, but a total ghost town. It's been 90% abandoned since 2010.
