    Excellent service, our waitress Laura was brilliant. So helpful, recommended all our courses and each one was fantastic. Great night and the complimentary Limoncello for our anniversary was the perfect touch.

    Booked the table 8 months ago when bought tickets for Peter kay all 4 of us wanted the lasagne but to be told at 6pm on a Saturday no lasagne left we were disappointed
    Riva Blu Italian Restaurant & Bar - LeedsResponded on 3 June 2024
    We apologize for your recent experience. During busy times, such as before concerts, the kitchen can become overwhelmed with orders, and occasionally, high-demand items may run out. While this is unfortunate, our menu offers a wide variety of options. We regret that this inconvenience led to a 3-star rating. We hope you'll reconsider and visit us again in the future.

    We had a great time as a larger group of 10 for a special dinner. The staff served us well, if sometimes seeming a little rushed on a busy Saturday. Overall the experience was great, however some guests chose Salad as a main and were quite disappointed with the Dish. Perhaps not supposed to have as a main? Also, one spaghetti dish seemed generous, but another pasta dish a smaller portion.
    Riva Blu Italian Restaurant & Bar - LeedsResponded on 2 June 2024
    Thank you for choosing Riva Blu for your special dinner and for sharing your experience with us. We're glad to hear that overall, you had a great time and that the staff served you well. We appreciate your feedback regarding the salads as mains and portion sizes of pasta dishes. We'll take this into consideration to ensure consistency and improve our offerings. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back for another enjoyable dining experience soon!

    Went for an early dinner. The food was nice but it expensive for what it was. Good place for a quick easy dinner but there is better places to get Italian in Leeds in my opinion

    Booked this restaurant as I was meeting with a friend for a catch up. Was greeted warmly by Luisa who was friendly and showed us to our table. She explained the menu then left us too decide. A lovely guy came and took a drinks order while we still pondered over the menu. Drinks came promptly 2 delicious classic Mojito served with smile. Food was ordered, it was absolutely delicious. Each course was fresh and delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive but not in your face which we liked. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning next time in Leeds. Thank you
