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.

OpenTable Diner (Philadelphia)

Very cool place that we've been meaning to go for a while, and I'm glad we went. Atmosphere was great, food was very good, and so were the drinks. My only complaint (and its minor and wouldn't stop me from returning) is the wine was a little expensive. I thought the food was priced right. Our service was also extremely top notch. We'll be back.

Restaurant food was tasty, but the pizza crust was not crispy. Seating was not comfortable. We were 2 and there were couples sitting at tables for four. One couple left as we arrived. In my profile, I request that because of a back issue, my husband prefers a larger table. When we requested the larger table, we were told that it was being held for reservations. However, a party of 2 was seated there. This spoiled our dinner. We will give the restaurant another try and hope that the seating situation will improve.

Everyone in our party was impressed with the food. We loved the arugula salad, grilled octopus, bronzino, and pizzas. The fried artichoke was fair but tasty sauce. I look forward to coming back when it’s warm outside to dine on the outdoor patio!

Our server was excellent! Always attentive and refilling water without asking and this has lacked at In Riva in the past. I wish I had her name. Food was excellent as always!

This is a very fine establishment. We dine there often. They have a delightful menu that we are pleasantly working our way through. In Riva has my highest recommendation.

We enjoyed the broccoli rabe salad and the mushroom and lamb pastas. My main quibble is the sodium level of the dishes . And sitting up against wall made for a chilly seat.

But In Riva remains one of our favorite Friday night dinner spots

I've eten here many times and the place was always great, however, the service and the quality of the food seems to have taken a downturn. The food and service used to be outstanding but the last few times the food and service were just okay. For example, the place wasn't busy and we got sat at the worst table in the place, a two topper right next to the cinder block wall. Then, we waited for 15 minutes for a server to wait on us. Meanwhile, we saw two other tables get seated, at better tables, and get waited on before our server even came to our table. I'm not sure why things have gotten worse but either way I think In-Riva needs to step up their game.
