I'm obsessed with In Riva and would eat there all the time if I could! The pizzas are delicious (the Brussels sprout one is my favorite), the arugula salad is to die for, and there is some sort of lentil/chickpea salad that is so flavorful!!!! - I keep having it and then going home and trying to replicate it - haven't managed to yet... I'm so happy to have In Riva as part of the East Falls neighborhood!

In Riva has very good & excellent pizza. I took my children there for their birthdays and both enjoyed the food immensely. My daughter has allergies to dairy & many other things so the chef made her a unique dairy free pizza with veggies & beef. She said she has never had better. He also made her a wonderfully fresh veggie appetizer.

My pizza was over the top in its richness--too fatty to be truly enjoyed called the Burrata. The mozzarella was infused (with fat?) & it was simply overly decadent. I should have ordered a simple margherita pie like my nephew. It was excellent. One member of our party ordered a pizza with broccoli rabe which was adored.

Our server was very attentive and anticipated our desires. My only quibble is that I believe In Riva would benefit from having more umbrellas on the outside patio.

If ypou our your child has allergies this place ay work for your family. If you are a foodie? Ditto.

What used to be Franco's is now In Riva. The setting is the same, with the great outdoor space overlooking the river, but the decor has been modernized and the pizza is amazing. Really, it's the best pizza I've had in the U.S. The menu is simple and everything is fresh and delicious. You can even sit at the pizza bar to watch the chefs do their thing and get some ideas about what to order on your next visit, because if you try In Riva, you will definitely be back!

Franco's sits very close to the Schuylkill river and outdoor dining offers a nice setting with the trail and river close by. The italian food is delicious here and makes it one of the best places to eat in East Falls.
