In addition to being BRW, next week is also Negroni Week 2020, which is raising money for un/under-employed restaurant workers during the pandemic. We will be offering our negroni as a special cocktail for BRW and will be donating 20% of our negroni sales during Negroni Week to our Riva Cucina Staff Support Fund that we began in March. We contributed 20% of all gift card sales to our staff while we were closed and have been passing along all donations made since March.
RIVA CUCINA: THE ITALIAN KITCHEN WHERE LAND AND WATER MEET Our Northern Italian cuisine, sustainably sourced from nearby farms and waters, is inspired by our chef’s region, Emilia-Romagna. We are incredibly honored to have earned a recommendation from the Michelin Guide, top five Berkeley/Oakland Italian restaurants from Zagat, 10 Best New East Bay Restaurants from the Oakland Tribune as well as countless regulars turned friends over the past twelve years.
