Joie de vivre, the Italian way. In the middle of Schwabing, just a few metres from the Münchner Freiheit.

You almost feel like you’re in a fashionable place in Milan when you step into modern and urban riva Schwabing. The large sun terrace invites you to stay and linger – and inside, with Italian specialties and an exuberant atmosphere, it’s a pleasure to extend one or two evenings on occasion.

Perfect for an aperitivo with friends, lunch with colleagues or business partners, and dinner with the family.

In addition to a modern wine and bar menu, sharing options, pasta, oven-fresh pizza and changing fish and meat specialities, riva guests appreciate the extraordinary: pinsa – an almost forgotten original form of pizza from ancient Rome: rustic, airy and light, and traditional, baked in the riva Schwabing oven for pure enjoyment.

The division into three parts Bar – Pasta – Grill as well as the generous and historic space makes the brenner the ideal location for your private or business meeting and event. We are delighted to assist you with the organisation.
