In Riva is introducing four tasting-size pasta dishes which will be adapted on a monthly basis to pay tribute to the season’s peak ingredients, opening the door to an incredible amount of pastabillities. For the East Falls’ restaurant’s fall pasta debut, Chef/Owner Arthur Cavaliere has a Garganelli with lamb ragu, black olives, and pine nuts; a Corone with peas, shallots and truffles; a Nastrini with lobster, chanterelle and basil, and a Fiondette with pork sugo, asparagus and oregano. The pastas range from $11 to $16 or you can share them all for $45.
Beyond this pasta party, the menu is full of fall additions like Glazed Short Ribs with golden raisins, capers, and pine nuts, Roasted Scallops with apple, smoked bacon, and almond, and a Potato and Gorgonzola pizza with leek, smoked bacon, and thyme.
In Riva also offers a Chef’s Tasting Menu every night for $35 a person, for $15 you can add a wine pairing to accompany each course. With these new pastas, we’re feeling the fancy route, and have a feeling you will be too.
