The atmosphere is old but charming. The pizza was very good. We had a house wine which was delicious. The waiters were very friendly.

Cozy atmosphere, and delicious food! One of the best meals of our trip. The Gorgonzola cream sauce is absolutely amazing! The staff spoke enough English and were very pleasant and patient with our inability to speak German. The atmosphere was pretty with candles glowing on each table. We loved this restaurant!

A great Restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. Eventhough a small Restaurant we were there with 15 colleagues and had a wonderful evening. The Tonnato I had was perfect. Just the little tuna taste that it needs to have as an extra for the meat. The Vegetables were fresh and had a very natural taste. The red wine from Sardinia was... More

We enjoyed this restaurant with some friends who eat there often. It was indeed a great find. A comfortable, cozy, welcoming Italian restaurant with well prepared, fresh food! Prices are extremely reasonable and the service is great. We enjoyed the antipasto plate for the table and it was scrumptious! My filetto balsamic was yummy and my husband's saltimbocca was great!...

On a recent trip to Germany we had a lay over in Stuttgart. Looking for a nice (non-Swabian) restaurant for dinner we chose Riva based on other recommendations on this website. It was wonderful! The food was fresh and delicious and served by a very polite young gentleman. We had the antipasto plate for a starter and it was amazing... More

I have been to many italian restaurants around the world and quite a few of them in Italy. Riva always ranks among the best of them and i firmly believe that their bruschetta is the best i have had. The pastas are all good and the daily specials are usually amazing. I go there everytime i visit Stuttgart

The restaurant has a nice feel inside and some outdoor seating as well. My party of four ate outside and enjoyed it. The service was a little slow to take the food order and deliver the food, I also ordered a desert and that took almost 20 min alone. We tried the Pizza (8 out of 10), the tortellini (7/10)... More

Clearly a neighborhood favorite - lots of local folks strolling by stopped for a chat with diners. Even though we americans showed up without a reservation, the waiter found a table and treated us very nicely. Lots of diners had pizza, so we took the cue and tried it as well, and it was quite good, very much like pizza... More

In my opinion, this is the best Italian restaurant in Stuttgart (and I've gone to a lot!) The salads are fresh and tasty, and the pizza/pasta is delicious! I recently returned from a trip around the Tuscany region of Italy, and Riva still ranks at the top of my favorite Italian dishes! Most or all of the servers/staff are from... More
