Head Chef Filippo Brici is all about fun, adventure and presentation, and this is reflected in the dishes he creates at Osteria Riva.
Smartly attired wait staff welcome you to their intimate surroundings that have been decorated with wine bottles of varying vintages from around the globe. This simple detail adds to the culinary occasion in this neighbourhood restaurant.
Since its establishment in 2011, Osteria Riva has been producing Italian cuisine with an emphasis on pasta and high-quality cuts of meat. In addition to the regular menu, the culinary team have specials on offer that are written on the chalkboard. The cappelletti ai porcini presents little caps of cheese-filled pasta with porcini mushrooms, a combination that looks striking on the colourful plate. The ravioli ripeni di trota salmonata e menta con fumetto di pesce e corallo is an exciting new addition to the pasta line-up. House-made ravioli is filled with ocean trout and mint, and served with shellfish ristretto and coral (deep-fried grated beetroot), delivering a dish with a range of flavours and textures.
PSST! The restaurant owners have affiliations with Balmain pizza restaurant Rosso Pomodoro.
