Limited menu. Preparations overall were average. Wouldn’t rush to return
always reliable, well prepared tasty food in a non pretentious atmosphere
Lovely dining experience overall. I'd definitely come back again!
Riva Cuchina never ceases to be just wonderful! Even on Valentine's Day where you might expect things to be a little crazy, everything was "spot on"! The special menu of halibut was great & we had the pleasure of the owner's sister-in-law waiting on us which made our evening more special! Great food, great place!
Wonderful food, great service, and nice outdoor seating space (weather permitting). I recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.
This place is always great. Will return again and again.
I've visited Riva Cucina 4 times. Each meal was delectable. My friend and I go before concerts. It's a small drive to the theater, but there's nothing that comes near the quality anywhere near the University anymore. It's an extremely quiet neighborhood and offers some outside seating in warm weather, I believe. Despite a full restaurant, it is no problem hearing one's companion. I love quiet restaurants and this hits the mark on all scores.
a favourite and underpriced local restaurant, which we enjoy on a regular basis. Highly recommended.
Excellent food at a reasonable price in an elegant setting.
Excellent food, really good for dates and business meals
Two of us dined here and chose the Restaurant Week menu. I was not impressed, sorry to say. My past experiences dining here and choosing from the regular menu have been much better.
Great food and ambiance. You were given time to savor your food between courses and were not rushed out the door after dining.
Secret Berkeley spot. We always have the scallop. Fresh and local new-Italian flavors.
Wonderful Saturday night meal!
Great food and service. Nice to find great Italian food close to home.
