So Sweet! Riva Serves Up Mouthwatering Desserts

Posted on August 23rd, 2017

At Riva Crab House on Navy Pier we are renowned for a couple things — our incredible menu of fresh seafood and our breathtaking views of both Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline.

A little bit lesser known is something that we take equal pride in — our delicious dessert menu! In his 15 years with Phil Stefani restaurants, Riva Executive Chef Luigi Garcia has crafted a dessert selection that is unrivaled on Chicago’s fine dining scene.  Chef Luigi’s desserts provide the perfect complement to our dinner and lunch menus and will leave your palate completely satisfied.

Riva’s dessert menu includes the following treats:

Big Chocolate Cake

Our Big Chocolate Cake is the star of the show and is piled high with five layers of chocolate genoise and chocolate butter cream. Chocolate lovers rejoice!

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Riva’s Flourless Chocolate Cake is made with double chocolate gelato and drizzled in a fresh raspberry coulis. A worthy second choice to our Big Chocolate Cake.


Our Tiramisu is a nod to our Italian roots. Crafted with Kahula, espresso, mascarpone and Dutch cocoa. A light and cream filled delight!

Key Lime Pie

Riva’s Key Lime Pie brings big flavor with our key lime tart, fresh whipped cream, and fresh lime. A taste of the Keys!

White Chocolate Creme Brulee

If you’re a fan of white chocolate, you’ll love our White Chocolate Creme Brulee. A traditional dessert favorite!

Assortment of Gelato

Treat yourself to a light and yummy assortment of vanilla bean, bittersweet chocolate, hazelnut and coconut ice cream – served on a tuile cookie

Riva also serves a selection of Bindi Italian Sorbets in orange, lemon or peach flavors. If an after-dinner drink is more your taste for dessert, Riva also offers handcrafted Cappuccino and Espresso. We proudly serve Lavazza Coffees.

So, when ordering lunch or dinner at Riva, remember to leave room for dessert. You’ll be happy you did!
