My wife is gluten restricted and our dinner at the La Rivista was 5 star. Presentation and service was outstanding. The three course wine & dine dinner was delicious and a terrific value. A special thanks to Yvonne.

we ended up at this restaurant late one evening and it was still buzzing with chatter. its very simply laid out and whilst it was a little slow in the food coming out i would recommend it. we had bruschetta and pizza which was all really well seasoned and presented. really delicious food and would highly recommend.

Such a great atmosphere in this place. The staff are excellent, nothing is too much trouble. Needless to say it was very busy and we had quite a delay... More

Began with the unbelievable ciabatta topped with hummus and grilled veg. My main was chorizo stuffed chicken with chorizo potatoes and spinach. This turned out to be the tastiest chicken dish I had ever ate. Unreal!! Finished off with one of the best tiramisu ever. My better half enjoyed the same starter followed by the spinach and ricotta tortellini. Her... More

Visited here on a midweek night when you look at others places and they are quiet. Although it was not full there were still quite a few tables eating at 8pm. We were greeted at the door by a friendly waitress and were shown to our table. They are doing a great meal deal of 59 EUR for 3 course... More
