    Food was exceptional. Relaxed open environment. We ate there twice it was so good. They have a dessert (for2) that is a must have. The service is none pressured and they pay attention to you. I wish they had a place in Oregon, we would go there a lot.

    The restaurant and service was perfect. This pizza and chicken dishes were lovely, but unfortunately the pasta dishes were not very nice and I've cooked better at home. Consequently the meal out was not good value.

    After 1 hour and 15 minutes we were told that we can't have the desert menu and we should please go to the bar to finish our drinks. They even took away the plate while my Mom was eating the last slice of Pizza. Very poor booking management. We had a reservation for 2 hours with 4 people. I like the Riva very much for food and also the Service was good the last couple of times. Just that one time was very disappointing...

    Unfortunately we had terrible service and meal here, its very busy, they brought us the wrong wine, left us unattended for long periods, failed to fully clear table after service, did not offer us desert menu. We had Sunday lunch and were brought a plate of chicken and potatoes, repeatedly asked were the veg was to several waiters and none came back to us until on the 4th attempt 20 minutes later were told they had run out and they would bring us more potatoes! At this point we had finished our meal and then sat for further 25 minutes waiting for Deseret menu, when waiter finally came we gave up and asked for the bill, the tables around us all seemed to be having issues also. I wont be going back.

    From being greeted with warm smiles and the fast efficient service, we truly enjoyed our evening. We have dined at Riva blu multiple times over the past couple of years and it only appears to be getting better! I try my best every time not to order the lasagne, but it’s that good I cannot resist! The beef carpaccio is one of our favourites! The atmosphere is always fantastic and the team appear to love being there. We always enjoy a cocktail afterwards in the bar and again… did not disappoint. We are already planning a return visit. Thank you so much!

    This is a wonderful restaurant and some of the best Italian food we have had in a UK Italian restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious. We had 2 children with us who wanted second helpings and finished all of their food. The atmosphere, staff service and even the crockery were all lovely. Would highly recommend.

    Have eaten at Riva Blu before so brought the family. All enjoyed the food but let down by time taken to get our table which we had reserved for 19.30 and then to get our main dish which wasn’t served until 21.15.

    Ciao! I'm glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed the food at Riva Blu, but I'm sorry to hear about the delays you experienced with getting your table and receiving your main dishes. Waiting for an extended period can certainly detract from the dining experience. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you better in the future.
