    I have been a customer for almost 6 months, and I had a horrible experience yesterday and the staff wasn’t attentive with us even though we were the party that was disrespected. This used to be a place I always bring my friends and family to. Beyond disappointing

    The food was generally excellent and our server was lovely. It was very quiet for a Saturday night but still noisy. The tomato starter was superb. As was the ravioli. The deserts were disappointing.

    Real shame our experience wasn’t good. Gentleman seated us where we arrived early which we were happy about, however rude waiter who got our starter wrong twice and my main meal wrong. Wine was warm also. Worst part was the waiter with the attitude for absolutely no reason. Wouldn’t go back

    Early diners table booked from 17.15. Shown to a table in window, next to the only other table taken. Restaurant was very quiet. Half price wine is good, service good, but food not to standard previously maintained, a bit disappointed for £129, we hope it improves. King prawn bruschetta, two prawns rather than the previous 3, far too much garlic & oil. pollo alla griglio, bit too much oil, tasty, but a tad dry. We both felt a little underwhelmed & have enjoyed much nicer meals a riva blue in the past. Perhaps we chose the wrong night?
    Riva Blu Italian Restaurant & Bar - LeedsResponded on 21 March 2024
    Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for any confusion regarding the number of prawns on our king prawn bruschetta. Typically, each bruschetta contains two prawns; however, our lunch menu offers a single bruschetta with three prawns. We're sorry to hear about your disappointment with the food quality and will strive to maintain our previous standards. Please contact us directly at giovannino.conti@rivablu.co.uk if you wish to share more feedback or concerns. We appreciate your comments and hope for the opportunity to improve your experience in the future.
