    Great decor and great atmosphere. Staff very friendly and professional. Food was good but we had an issue with one of the dishes but was taken off the bill which was good customer service.

    Lovely meal, great service and atmosphere but let down by the limit on meal time, almost all restaurants you have a 2 hour limit but to make a límit based on party size is ridiculous!!

    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...
