Cut up romaine, dressing, and croutons. No anchovies. Nothing to write home about. My husbands wedge salad was good. The rolls are... More

My sister and I sat outside for lunch which was nice without a need for a reservation. The service was slow for 1:00 in the afternoon which wasn't an issue since we weren't in a hurry. I liked my carpaccio and the Parmesan fries which is large enough portion to share. My sister ordered the fish cake which came out... More

My daughter and my wife recently ate dinner there. I had the chicken saltimbocca and they had the hake. We had a wedge salad and the house salad. The food was excellent. It was also plentiful. The help staff were very attentive and tried to satisfy our every need. If you like good food, go there. You will not be... More

Been to Riva too many times to count. Its a local favorite for sure. The food is always delicious, and the menu changes which is always nice. They have recently done some upgrades to the structure and set up and it's made things more comfortable and more inviting.
