Docked opposite to Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence is the First Nile Boat, a culinary destination with restaurants that best fit every mood, offering a trendy world of taste, comfort, and luxury.
One of its renowned restaurants is a cosy outdoor pizzeria at Riva that offers a daily selection of home-made pizza and antipasti. Every Thursday and Friday, Riva open its doors at 7:00 pm to welcome guests to celebrate “Cicchetti Nights by the Nile.” Cicchetti are commonly known as Italian appetisers, taking guests on a culinary journey through the easily snackable.
This journey doesn’t end at the simple - but indispensable – bruschetta, but extends to more elevated traditional Venetian delicacies such as truffle arancini, calzone, calamari, charred octopus and goat’s cheese or mushroom ricotta crostini, which can be ordered from an extensive a la carte menu.
Bringing the evening to even more of a romantic high, live acoustic Italian music dances around in the backdrop as conversations happen, transporting guests to the magical canals of Venice.
Guests can also opt from Riva’s Cicchetti package, which serves a selection of cicchetti and two glasses of Egyptian wine for a sharing party of two for EGP 600.
