our food


Riva's menu changes seasonally in order to provide our guests with the freshest, local ingredients of the season.  Chef/Owner Michael Tondorf brings a new American flair to traditional Italian dining. The menu is divided into two categories: Classic & Inspired.  The classic dishes have been on the menu since Riva was created in 2002.  The inspired dishes are for those more adventurous and wanting to try out the Chef's new American flair.  Riva is known for having excellent dinner specials throughout the year.   

Known for exceptional food and exceptional service, Riva has consistently been voted the #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor.  Please look at some of our reviews and feel free to let us know how you experience was!

Riva Restaurant is a hidden spot located just 26 miles south of Boston in the quaint fishing village of Scituate Harbor.  Riva offers the best of all seasons!  Summer guests can enjoy handcrafted cocktails on our popular outdoor patio overlooking Front Street.  Riva's dining room offers the charm and ambiance for a cozy romantic dinner with a fireplace helping warm the air on those chillier nights.  Riva's Harborside Bar is great for a more casual experience and a great place to socialize with local Scituate folks!
