This place is awesome. 30 minute wait for a table on a Saturday lunchtime as I hadn't booked, but it was worth waiting. There's a long choice of pizzas, but I went for a simple anchovy and buffalo mozzarella. It was perfect - light and chewy base, tasted very authentic. I was in heaven. Fairly expensive at 2100jpy but completely... More

We took a chance and hopped a cab here at 7-ish on a Saturday night. Not surprisingly, it was full. Since we really wanted to try the pizza to compare it to our fave back home we decided to get takeout and sit by the river and eat it. Our pizza was cooked in very short order. I only had... More

Like many other reviewers we wee in need of something to eat other than Japanese food, but did not want to have western burgers... Being fish eating veggies creates its own problems in Japan and so Italian food that has not been over-Japanised is a good option. We arrived just after 6pm and luckily got three seats at the counter... More

Happy to report the Italian/Japanese pizza menu now includes English descriptions too. And we were served by an English-speaking waiter so ordering couldn't have been easier. Great wood fired pizzas, warm atmosphere and the biggest choice of pizza I've ever seen. Take a street car to Yokogama 1-chrome then walk a minute back towards the river - turn right before... More

I ordered a pepperoni pizza only to be served a pizza covered in peppers with no cheese! I had to show the staff a picture of pepperoni so they could understand what it actually was, so be careful if you order one!

This place is really lovely and worth a trip if you fancy a break from japanese food. You can get the tram to it walk towards the river, take the first right And walk round the corner until you see the twinkly lights of this place. It was packed out but we got a seat quickly. The chef came out... More

I come up to Hiroshima from Melbourne around 4 times per year on business, Pizza Riva is simply fantastic. The Pizzas are traditional Italian Wood Fire baked. There's also a starter menu that has some really tasty combinations on it. The only problem with this restaurant is that the menus are only in Japanese and the starter menu can be... More

Pizza Riva opened in December 1997 and was one of the first traditional Napoli-style pizzerias in Japan. They use a wood-fire brick oven imported from Naples, and quality ingredients like buffalo mozzarella, artisan-cured salami, prosciutto, fresh basil and rucola. The pomodoro sauce is pure perfection - you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. They also have a nice... More

Living in Japan we miss some of our North American food. Pizza, thanks to Pizza Riva, is not one of them. This local gem was a recommendation by our Sensei. We have been there 4 times in the last few month and it has been a Western bright spot in our Asian diet. The menu is without English, however, it... More
