Parents in town? Impress them with your cultivated palate by showing them Riva Cucina.

The Italian menu changes from time to time, but you can always count on the pasta and seafood being absolutely delectable. We mean, you can practically taste the salt in the air.

We recommend the antipasto misto (two kinds of bruschetta and salame? we’re so there). If you’ve got a sweet tooth, order the panna cotta to seal the deal.

Location: 800 Heinz Ave., accessible by the 9 bus
Price: $15 to $20 per entree
Notes: Don’t be afraid of ordering lots of antipasti.
