You want a simple Italian meal, pizza or pasta, and you don’t want to spend a fortune in Munich’s pricey Altstadt—where do you go? To Riva, just outside Marienplatz on Tal, next to the Isartor. This is an uncomplicated and uncluttered place, simple but nicely designed. Okay, maybe the music is too loud, but Riva also serves as a bar where a young crowd comes for cocktails. The menu is limited to pizza, pasta and a few salads. You can order a reasonably priced glass of wine to go with your meal, and leave quite contented, without having drained your bank account.
