Lovely atmosphere , friendly attentive staff and great food that was cooked with love. Unfortunately there was only a limited menu due to understaffing in the kitchen but this did not affect the quality of the food. Steak was perfectly cooked and vegetables were done to perfection. A talented vocalist performed live which added to the relaxed feel. Will definitely be back ❤️

Excellent service and very tasty food. Beef Wellington was very nice but not worth £32 I’m afraid.

I also thought the wine was over priced but maybe they are pricing it on their location, ie one of the most affluent areas in the North West.

Been to plenty of restaurants where the food was just as good but much cheaper

Two of us had the seared tuna salad and the fish was perfectly cooked and pink in the middle which so often is not the case in restaurants. The others had fish and chips which they said was excellent. The service was extremely good without being intrusive.

We love coming to Riva we are always made to feel welcome and the children are also comfortable and welcome. The menu is lovely portions are just right we never leave hungry. One member of staff is truly unforgettable she is wonderful with the children talking to them on the same level giving them time to pick and feel like they are just as important she really is a credit to the team at Riva
