Riviera Reviews

1 review
There is little in Riviera, but enough to manage a life. There's a few restaurants that aren't the best places to go; however, they do provide safe enough food. Many of the people that live in Riviera aren't the friendliest. In fact, they have their own groups in Riviera so it's not easy to be social unless you know the right people.
