    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.

    Very nice place,went with my boyfriend for an early valentines dinner and was lovely. The service was great people coming around and asking if everything was okay,we got everything we could ever want and the server was even kind enough to wrap up some garlic bread that we couldn't finish at the time die to us being so full. However,there is always room for dessert and me an my boyfriend had tiramisu and it was at the same quality as the food-absolutely amazing.

    I've been to this restaurant before, but in the day and it was lovely. The food was delicious and hot and the staff were very helpful and professional. This evening meal was not to the same standard, the restaurant was very busy and very loud, and people were hustled out once their meal was finished, I assumed they needed to keep the turnaround times, as I said it was busy. The noise that is generated within this building when it is busy is so distracting and doesn't lend itself to an ambient atmosphere! That said, the staff were once again very kind, helpful, and professional. Well done to them.

    Prime location, wonderful space and great service - could be quite the place to be if the food would be at least decent. I would recommend it for drinks and eventually the Tagliere Misto but whatever cooked/ warm food is better to be avoided.

    Had to send 1 meal back as underdone - also received the wrong order for another diner in our party. Way too busy for the kitchen to cope with efficiently.

    Rammed on Saturday night. Held in bar for 15minutes while table readied. Slow service and somehow, despite a 830 booking, we were last to leave. Other later arriving tables served and cleared before us. Food okay. I suspect the kitchen was stretched by function downstairs. Nice place and good vibe, cheerful staff but overstretched on a busy Saturday.

    Had a lovely meal here last night, our server Victoria was very helpful with food choices and attentive. All the food was delicious and came within a good time frame even though it was very busy. All the cocktails were nice as well. Definitely will be returning.
