Foursquare Tips

  • Try the corkage free Wednesdays.
  • Best Italian restaurant I 've been too
  • We love everything on the menu, excellent wine selection almost at same price as retail and no corkage Wed.
  • Food was fine, nothing more nothing less. I would only eat here again if I were passing by by accident.
  • Delightfully good pasta. Good ambience, but quite pricey too.
  • Very good! we tried the burrata, the branzino and crab pasta. Also delicious the panacotta.
  • Riva Cucina is one of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area. Such great food, great staff... I always leave happy!
  • Amazing pastas and suggested wine pairings. The atmosphere was very cozy and inviting, and the service was kind/fast.
  • Indeed an excellent tagliatelle bolognese, and had a rock cod dish there that was superb.
  • Everything is good. Seriously. Come here and save yourself a trip to Italy.
  • Porchetta Arrosto (melt in your mouth) and Fondant Chocolate Cake (so moist and decadent)! More please!
  • Believe me: i'm from Bologna and I can tell you that bolognese is just perfect
  • La torta della nonna is a must have !
  • I had the sole and it could have used a touch less salt. El Hubs however had the bolognese and it was absolutely perfect.
  • Order the tagliatelle and you won't be able to try anything else. So good!
  • Just great!
  • Ravioli is outstanding. Worth going just for the olive oil they serve free with the bread.
  • Best real italian restaurant of the east bay. It reallly likes to be in Italy. Chef Massi is a masterpiece
  • great food, but too noisy for a good conversation
