We are a family run restaurant in Kennington, serving honest, tasty Italian food made using Italian seasonal ingredients alongside selected local Italian wines and beers. We offer two menus, a fixed Brasserie style with classic Italian favourites, suitable for lunch and supper dining experiences, alongside a 'Riverside Specials Menu' a bi-weekly changing menu taking advantage of seasonal British & Italian ingredients, special meats and fish. A number of home-made desserts and cakes are available daily. We are in very close proximity to The Imperial War Museum and The Old Vic Theatre, and located opposite Lambeth North underground station. Riverside 2 is the perfect location to enjoy either a family meal, pre or post theatre suppers or a friendly, relaxed environment to enjoy a dinner with friends.

The staff were lovely, the waitress was very happy and bubbily which made the evening even more magical. The food was delicious to say the least (date had steak and I had spaghetti bog), they were made with love.

We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Our 6 year old grandson was really well looked after. Food was good value for money.

This restaurant looked decent online and looked fairly upmarket. When visiting the restaurant it was not at all what was expected. Tables looked cheap and overall vibe was lacking. Service was okay, but did forget to add my order to the rest, so ended up eating alone & i was still charged. I would only visit this restaurant again if i was passing by and needed a quick meal.

Good food, friendly service & great value for money considering.
Service was quick and the pizza was a good size with nice, crispy base.

From start to finish we had the most excellent, friendly and warm service. We ordered the clam linguine and there was a shortage of clams so we were treated to a delightful substitute packed with other seafood to pad it out. It was delicious and we felt really comfortable and happy there. Will be back!

I made the reservation for a family lunch after a special occasion and the party overall found their food satisfactory. My Caesar salad was disappointing and didn't live up to what I consider a Caesar salad to be. The dressing was not particularly tasty, the lettuce not crunchy, the chicken was overcooked and there were no croutons to speak of. However the staff were lovely and attentive. Perhaps my choice of meal was just a bad one...

Our table was ready and the welcome was good. Althought he menu is very short it was unfortunate and disappointing that both a selected main and a selected dessert (from the specials of the day) were not available - and we had entered an almost empty restaurant which did get busy later. The food quality was very reasonable and price was average for what was provided. I had a steak (rib-eye was off) my guests had plaice and my wife battered cod. and we each had a pudding. 3 beers and 1 glass of wine completed a meal that cost £30 a head all in

They had no record of our booking. Fortunately we were there early so could be accommodated. Food took over an hour to arrive which was not good with two small children in our party. One free bottle of wine between 12 people was not much consolation. Food was good when it finally arrived .

Friendly service and high quality food. The decor is a bit clinical, giving a cafe-like feel. There is no disabled access nor disabled toilet facilities - something that means that we are unlikely to return.

Great welcome and nice window table for two. Vegetarian food good. Good quick service, good wine choice, friendly helpful staff and the limoncello at the end was a nice touch.

Took my little boy to the restaurant as a treat after our visit to the Imperial War Museum.
It was very quite (12pm) but the staff were helpful and attentive.
We had a delicious margarita pizza and a jug of water and the service was very quick.
My only complaint would be that we weren't listened to as we entered the restaurant - I gave our name and said we had booked a table for two for 12:30 but were early and hoped that was ok. I know we weren't listened to as I received an email from OpenTable afterwards saying that, as we hadn't turned up, this might have had a derogatory affect on the establishment and I should have let them know I wanted to cancel, which I didn't. More cross with OpenTable than the restaurant however as the email was quite snotty.
