    Very busy but a good atmosphere. Staff very hospitable and welcoming. Only thing I would mention is that the food whilst tasty was a little warm rather than hot . This may of been because it was sat waiting for staff to serve it because it was so busy . If it wasn’t for this it would have been 5 stars all round !

    From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. We were quickly taken to our table and by left to decide what we wanted, Sam was excellent, funny and engaging. The wine was well presented and was of good quality. We chose not to have starters. I had a king prawn linguini my wife had the sea bass, both were well cooked and very flavoursome. We had teramasu for sweet and as it was my wife’s birthday, hers came with a candle and a chocolate. There was also a complementary shot of Lemonchelo, the bill was as expected. Overall a great birthday meal Thank you Sam and all at Riva Blu

    Last minute booking while we were out in Leeds. This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant. Great atmosphere for a Tuesday night in February. Food was excellent (we all had pasta dishes). Staff very friendly and professional as always. I believe I have quite high standards when it comes to food and service and would have no problem recommending this restaurant to my family and friends.

    We ordered mixed seafood spaghetti and a gluten free pizza. The seafood was not fresh smelling fishy and the squid was tough. The spaghetti was hard. The gluten free Pizza base was not cooked enough time feeling like eating sponge.

    Ambience was great though quite noisy. Lovely decor and furniture. Staff pleasant and attentive. Food however was very average. I had gluten-free pizza and was given a pizza knife but it barely cut through the pizza base. The pizza wasn’t great. Loved the look of the place and staff were lovely but the food let it down so won’t be rushing back, sad to say.

    This is the third time I have visited Riva Blu in Leeds, and unfortunately it was probably the worse I have experienced it. Was it bad? No. Was it good? Not really either. The ambience and décor within the restaurant is beautiful so this cannot be faulted. The establishment is also very clean. I ordered a lasagne with tomato & basil garlic bread. I was informed that the there would be bit of a waiting time for the lasagne which I was fine with. Upon arrival, the garlic bread I received was half and half. I brought this up with the waiter as it wasn't what I had ordered and he was happy for the cost to be waivered and on the house. The bread itself was nice however the tomato and basil was disappointing. The tomato sauce had a slight off taste to it, no hint of garlic, and two very sorry looking pieces of basil. The base was a little overcooked too. The lasagne was pleasant for the most part - the sauce was lovely. The bottom layer of pasta was burnt in a few areas and stuck to the bottom of the dish. I did ask for some black pepper as the pepper mill on the table was empty, only to be brought another one which was also empty. I did want cracked black pepper so it is disappointing that they only have the small grinders on the tables which don't provide the same taste/ experience. My transaction after paying also hasn't tracked through the Club IR app either which I guess is a separate issue. For the price I paid (given it was 50% off during January) I can't be too disappointed but you do expect better quality of food (presentation wise it looks nice!). Also please don't include a service charge automatically on the bill! Leave it to the customer to decide if a tip should be left or not!

    It seemed that your waiters are over-confidence on the medium rare and medium grade on Fillet. Wrong matching resulted yesterday noon.

Your feedback is important, and we'd like to investigate further to ensure a better dining experience next time.

    Excellent Italian restaurant. The menu is interesting and a good step beyond the standard Italian Restaurant fare (though if you prefer those kinds of dishes you will find some here). Well-cooked and well presented. Service levels were good when we were there, though it was a quiet Sunday afternoon so I can't speak for a busy Friday or Saturday night. It's pricier than some other Italian restaurants in West Yorkshire but well worth it for the range of options and a good wine list with some interesting variations. My wife and I will make it our first choice for Italian when we are up in Yorkshire.

    Great food, great ambience, good service from most of the staff save for the initial obnoxious, attitude-ridden table server who treated us like she had little time to live, and had to get us loaded onto the conveyer belt as quickly as possible, standing over her Ordering Tablet metaphorically finger tapping whilst were still browsing the menus. I confronted her, but to no avail, just more attitude, followed by more attitude whenever she passed the table. Maybe leaves some room for a little more customer service training. Close on a high, the food was excellent and so was the rest of the restaurant team.
