In Riva is a restaurant venue located on the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA, that presents its Main Patio space for events. Clients can hold many different dinner party events here, from rehearsal dinners to corporate gatherings. The culinary team specializes in creating authentic Napoletana pizza and bold Southern Italian cuisine.
In Riva’s Main Patio blends urban and rustic elements, establishing a unique space for private parties. The patio incorporates plenty of greenery and natural features into its design which provide shade during the hot summer months. Additionally, each table can fit an umbrella which lowers or raises depending on guests’ preference. With both covered and uncovered space, patrons have a choice of where to sit. The patio’s red industrial chairs add a pop of color to the area.
In Riva, meaning “along the river” in Italian, was founded by chef Arthur Cavaliere and real estate developer Mark Sherman. Led by chef Arthur, the culinary staff offers customizable menus for private events. Including antipasti, the restaurant’s signature wood-fired pizza, dessert, and other courses, clients can choose from various catering styles. The Main Patio can accommodate 70 guests for a seated dining experience or up to 125 for a buffet or cocktail-style event.
