In Riva is a Southern Italian inspired restaurant with urban flair, specializing in Napoletana style pizza, house-made pasta and contemporary antipasti. In Riva also offers an eclectic array of new and old world wines, Italian craft beers and racy specialty cocktails.
The menu from drinks to main is fabulous. Be adventurous and get a pizza with a few adds.
Well worth a trip
I have never had a bad meal here. I highly recommend the margherita pizza!
Sadly, we were disappointed. Our table was by the door and we froze our entire meal. Plans need to be made to address the cold weather.
Our service was mediocre at best.
The food was good but with the other similar restaurants in the area we will think twice before returning.
Overall good experience both times we have dined. Food is very good, as was service. The freezing cold draft that wafts through the restaurant is my only concern. We have sat in several different locations and always notice it.
Good food great waitress no wait lots of quiet children family friendly
The food and service were wonderful, as always!! We always look forward to the chefs creative and unique menu items!
THE BEST!! ⭐️💕⭐️ 💕
Valentines Day, so I get it. We made a reservation in advance and were seated in an area to the left that was blasted with frigid air every time the door opened. The pizza was good and worth the price. Everything else seemed overpriced and small. It was loud, dark and very cold. I had to keep my coat on the entire meal to get through.
Great food and Service!
The food was so flavorful!! The service was awesome ! I will certainly be back again
Love it and go frequently for years. Very consistent and high quality. Only drawback is that the music is too loud and makes conversation difficult.
Overall, In Riva offers an exceptional dining experience. The selection of small plates is intriguing and we were pleased with all of them. Our food attendant was superb and our courses arrived quickly. However, the noise level was quite high. Not an intimate setting.
Fabulous dinner with friends ~
Pizza, pasta, salads & fish all consistently terrific!!
Love In Riva!!! 💕
Best Omelet I have ever eaten!!!!
Great. Pizza is delicious.
Steve & his crew are fabulous!!
Arugula salad, pizzas, pasta & bronzino are all terrific!!!
My go to place always...great atmosphere & never disappoints!!
We got overcharged which I didn’t find out until we got home. $31.00 for a pizza a beer and an Aranciata. Fabric should be added to the ceiling or somewhere because it’s extremely loud.
Delicious twist on Italian favorites. Looking forward to going back in the summer.
The food was very good and service was fine. The noise level was terribly loud and the lights just too bright. Would return but definitely not for quiet conversation.
The cauliflower piccata dish was exceptional. Perfectly fried with a well seasoned balanced sauce. Certainly the highlight of the well curated menu. Well done!
Services was excellent! Everything came out fast and was delicious. One of our favorites and we’ll be sure to go back.
I really enjoyed the spiced edamame and Pistachios. Our group had pizza which I didn’t eat but everyone liked it. I had the broccoli salad and enjoyed it very much.
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.
We really enjoyed everything. Apps, flatbread, entrees and dessert all delivered. First time but we will be back.
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.
