Brick-oven pizza lovers, rejoice! If you’re a fan of anything Italian or let’s just cut to the chase and say Neapolitan pizza, then ‘Riva’ is going to be the spot for you. Located aboard the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at the First Residence’s First Nile Boat, the restaurant comes through with a chance to indulge in our favourite Italian dishes.
The pizza from Riva
Some of the items you can expect to find on Riva’s no-frills menu include a selection of fresh ‘antipasto’ like bruschetta al pomodoro (bruschetta with tomato and basil), arancini ai funghi (fried mushroom risotto balls), a beautiful caprese salad and burrata. The restaurant also offers a selection of Neapolitan pizza cooked in a brick oven: a classic margherita, al formaggi (ft. smoked scamorza, pecorino and Grand Pedano cheeses), a frutti de mare and schiacciata fresca pizza topped with pecorino cheese, bresaola and arugula.
If you’re a bit of a sweet tooth, you can opt for their desserts like tiramsu or their special ‘very berry panna cotta.’ To make a reservation rn, call 'em up on +2 3567 1600.
