In Riva is the first venture by Philadelphia-born chef Arthur Cavaliere who has combined the similarities of his two favorite cities—Naples and Philadelphia—to deliver an unparalleled culinary experience. Sticking with the Italian translation of its name, In Riva is located "along the banks" of the Schuylkill River in East Falls.

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.

In Riva has a great menu for every day dining that still feels special. The side vegetable dishes are delicious, the pizzas are great and so is the pasta. It's easy to eat healthy, vegetarian and also splurge. Food is very high quality.

Great food. Great Service. The wood fired pizza was outstanding, the beer selection was great. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Looks like I found a new "favorite place"

Excellent food and excellent service. We had charred octopus, gemelli pasta with braised lamb, and two pizzas (eggplant and soppressata). Everything we ate was delicious, and we were pleased with the wine list as well. Will definitely be back!

Best chick peas ever. Lovely staff although people at the front desk seem to ignore you and be into their own conversations. Pizza very good for a city with lots of pretty good wood fired. Not lots of charring. Edge Crust a bit large but good texture. I saved mine and had it for .breakfast lightly toasted. Sauce was good and plenty of topping.

My wife and I always enjoy InRiva. They've got a great variety of Italian specialties and their pizza is the most the closest to authentic Italian pizza you'll find on this side of the Atlantic. We especially enjoy having a drink and snack there in the spring and summer, when they've got outdoor dining overlooking the Kelly Drive and the Schulkill River.

We came in from Chicago for the Army/Navy game and were looking for an incredible resturant to eat at. All I have to say is In Riva and the staff was amazing. I worked with Dawn (event planner as we had 13 in our group) and she came up with an incredible menu that was delicious. If you live in the Philly area or are traveling there, In Riva is a must stop for incredible food!!

Very good as usual, but our service was a bit off. Server said they did not have the beer I requested, so I went to the bar and got it myself. They forgot our salad until after our pizzas were served.

Still live InRiva and I consider our family “regulars” there. That will not change.
I do wish they would address the acoustics- it’s terribly loud. An easy fix would be the installation of acoustic panels on ceilings/walls. They can be decorative if desired.

Best pizza in Philadelphia. The fontina pizza with zucchini and mushrooms is my favorite. Overall a cozy and casual restaurant to enjoy food and have a good time.
