Very noisy on a Saturday night. Should have sat outside. Pizza is always extra good.
Great place to either do a small plates date night, or a quick trip for phenomenal pizza!
Food was fantastic. The server was awesome! The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and quickly took care of us. She was super nice and took care of us with pleasure. My only complaint is that we were sat next to a loud family with many little kids who continuously kicked the bench we shared, killing the ambience.
Good pizza and salads and drinks. Lovely in the warmer months when you can dine outdoors. Pizzas are a little pricier than I think they should be.
I dont know why we dont go here more often. Fantastic pasta.
Haven't been to In Riva for a few years & went for lunch with a friend. I was amazed - the food was terrible!!! I had gnocchi with short ribs - the beef was good but the rest was gummy & the tomato sauce very acidic. An arugula salad with a MOUNTAIN of grated cheese and so much oil I couldn't eat it. My friend had a pasta dish - can't remember the name - fat noodles with mushrooms. The sauce was good but the noodles were not quite cooked. Sad. I used to like the place but won't go back. The waiter was wonderful, by the way.
This place is a family fav that never disappoints. Delicious pizza and chill vibe
The arugula salad is simply the best!
Food ~ excellent
Staff ~ outstanding
My place to take friends or go it alone!!
Love it! Absolutely my favorite in Philly! Great for kids, adults, and doggies too.
Wonderful fun evening. Great service. Food good- great for garlic lovers
I found the bread serviced with my food was too greasy and some of the dishes are a little too small maybe. But apart from this everything else was great.
Excellent food and great service. Menu is reasonably priced. Great day.
Fantastic brunch with the family. We were seated right away, service was extremely attentive and the food was beyond delicious. You know it’s a great experience when everyone left feeling full and satisfied, and couldn’t stop raving about it. Added bonus for me - I’m a vegetarian and there were tons of options for me to choose from, and a lot of items I could make vegetarian simply by ordering them without the meat. Love that they are so accommodating here!
Great time, great food. Waiter was nice and didn’t rush us out.
I’ve been to In Riva many times and the food and service is always consistently good
The food never fails to impress. Please bring back the branzino!!!
Great pizza very noisy. Heaters on the patio would be great
Food is AMAZING! Always something cool to look at and the outdoor dinning is beautiful! Highly recommend this spot!
Food and drinks were excellent! Service was friendly. Music was a little loud outside, however we were directly under speaker. Will definitely return!
There was 5 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. Our server was so wonderful!
In Riva was a great choice for our small team dinner. We did the 5 course meal and it was fantastic! We were STUFFED by the end - it was so much food! Their pizza dough is one of the best that I've tasted in a while and the pasta was also amazing! Fresh ingredients, attention to detail (flavor town!), and a little love from the chef made for some very happy customers. Everything was so delicious and they set a great pace so we could enjoy all the plates without feeling rushed. We will definitely be back!
Love this place! Their handmade pastas are amazing.
This place is Philly's hidden gem. Best pizza and handmade pasta in the city. Charred octopus is to die for.
Always quality, fresh, thoughtfully seasoned and creative Italian food. One of the better restaurants anywhere in Philly.
Always a great experience coming to In Riva.
Bottomless margaritas are amazing. Pizza, pastas, pea soup—awesome!!
Fabulous arugula salad, great wine selections, great pizzas, small plates of yummy food...service a 10!
Great menu and excellent service.
Absolutely love this place! The service is always great, great setting, and reasonable prices. However, I've been a little disappointed with the pizzas I've ordered the last few times that I've gone. For example way too truffley truffle pizza that didn't taste like anything else and could be smelled three tables over, or the "speck" on the pizza today that should probably be served diced and not in strips because it's impossible to rip with your teeth. I've always loved the insalate, antipasti, vasi, pasta, and brunch options. I just need to be a little more inquisitive when ordering outside of the usual pizza suspects.
Great place excellent food super value
We all had a great time!! Loved the atmosphere and the food!! Will be back!
Excellent cliche tapas - all good
Everything was great. Server seemed nervous or new but did a fair job. We sat outside which left us privy to motorcycle noise. Other than that, great.
Ohh and they had a drink that was my last name!!!
Great service, excellent food. Shared 3 enteees, appetizer and a pizza. Signature drinks were delicious.
One of my favorite neighborhood go to spots, the food and service is always amazing

Arugula salad, prosciutto appetizer & both chicken marsala & pasta dish were terrific accompanied by a great bottle of Italian valpolicella!! Thanks to Steve for the extra yummy
chick peas....soooo good!!!

We had a great time and enjoyed trying a variety of appetizers, pastas and pizzas. All were delicious!!
The arugula salad is the BEST!!!
PLEASE bring back the bronzino....it’s fabulous & needs to be on the menu permanently.
I have been dining at In Riva for a few years and the experience is always delightful. Always a friendly, easy going, attentive staff and a delicious food menu that never disappoints.
