Here Comes Riva - A New Culinary Experience in Cairo
First Nile Boat is Cairo’s newest culinary and lifestyle address. It is located at the widest part of the west banks of the Nile, opposite to Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence.
Riva by the Nile is an open-air pizzeria situated on the First Nile Boat’s dock equipped with subtle and modern furnishings complemented by outdoor ambience and greenery. It joins other contemporary dining restaurants including Xodó and Nairu.
Riva as translated into “riverside” in Italian is inspired by its iconic location by the Nile, serving wood-fired brick oven pizzas, antipasto and dolce.
When coming to Riva, bring a hearty appetite for life and immerse the senses starters and pizza, with herbs freshly locally sourced from the Chef’s Garden.
You can start off your Italian gastronomic journey with a variety of choices of antipasto: caprese salad, vitello tonnato, pane fritto, bruschetta al promodoro and a burrata salad freshly curated.
Choosing a favourite pizza will be the most difficult decision. Pizza marinara with anchovies, la picante with salami or a frutti de mare? The possibilities are endless.
Then, seal off the palate with a delicious pane cotta or a delicate tiramisu that will offer the aroma of fragrant Italy.
Riva is the place where you get the best of Italy and Cairo. Guests enjoy authentic flavours from Veneto, Italy and freshly home-grown ingredients from the Chef’s Garden, all served to you by the Nile.
At Riva, guests mingle with friends and savour fresh-out-of-the-brick-oven pizzas, cocktails and a vibrant selection of antipasto using the freshest ingredients from our Chef’s garden.
Riva is now open at the First Nile Boat from 12:00 noon to 11:00 pm. For reservations, call +2 02 3567 1885.
