Just enjoyed a FABULOUS experience at Riva, Naperville. Started with great martini's in the bar - the Pear martini was terrfic - one of the few very good ones that I've had - not too sweet & they put a dash of cinnamnin on top. The antioxidant martini was also mentionable.
In the dining room, we enjoyed very good service - bordering on too attentive. The appetizers were very good -- dates stuffed with chorizo were very good, the Oysters Rockefeller were also very good & the Tuna tartar stack was amazing. Our group of four had steak, seafood & one of the specials --- all were very good. For dessert, the bread pudding was a standout. Chef David Sapp is making his mark on Naperville! We will be back.
I think David is brilliant! He went to Riva from Timpano Chop House. When he was there he made me an awesome birthday dessert and treated us to a glass of champagne in the 'lounge'
I am glad to hear he is doing well there. When we visit in May we'll have to dine there! Thanks
for the report!
Yep, my wife and I went there last month. Great food, good service. Prices were too high for that view of the RT. 59 exit on I88. I can see paying those prices on Navy Pier, but overlooking the highway detracted a bit for me. But again, the food was very good. We will probably go back since it's 6 minutes from our house.
