This place is amazing. We live in Japan and were on vacation. We hadn't had authentic pizza for a few years. We went here and it was great. Our waiter spoke very good english and was really excited to speak english with anyone. The food was perfect. The service was great. We went at around 9 pm and it was... More

If the service had been better, I would have given this place a full "5" score. They made a huge mistake with our reservation and we were luckily seated but were given less than 90 minutes which was not fair at all. Especially when we ordered much more food & drinks than the tables around us. My Japanese guests were... More

My wife and baby daughter had lunch here and it was a great experience! The wait staff were very friendly and did their best to translate the menu for us, which was appreciated! There's some great little parks for kids in the neighborhood too. We will definitely return if we have the chance!

We popped in to Riva Pizza on a very rainy evening and were met with the sounds of merry laughter, the lovely little restaurant was filled with Japanese friends having a great time. We ate gorgeous pizza from their award winning pizza chef and drank some beautiful limoncello for €3 a glass! As good as pizza we have eaten all... More

My husband and I were craving non Japanese food and took a bus to get to Pizza Riva. It was good, delicious actually. It would've added to the experience to have a good wine list, unfortunately they just offered a weak house wine. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again, but if you're in the area... More

We stopped here for lunch and we're glad we did. The staff were friendly and gave us an English summary of the menu. Our food was delivered quickly and all was very tasty.

Easily the best pizza in the city and could match up with the best elsewhere. The nightly specials have had some real gems the nights we have eaten here. Anything with ricotta has been amazing. The prices are a little high as others have pointed out but it's worth it.

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
