We visited this restaurant twice whilst in Kilkenny, great food and gluten free options too ! I find it very difficult to eat out since becoming wheat intolerant, it was so nice to have a choice! Very helpful hosts! Hopefully we will be able to return when next on holiday. Certainly worth a visit.

After over a week touring Ireland and enjoying lots of fish and Guinness, we were desperate for a change and found it, wonderfully, at La Rivista. Fairly centrally located (just a half-block from where St. Kiaran Street joins the High Street at Parliament Street, it is wide open and welcoming. Service was prompt and friendly without being overbearing. The menu... More

Had a really good pizza here, thin crispy base and fresh quality toppings. They do really good two course deals and deals for two people.

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.

Ate here just last night, have been here acouple of times but decided to review. Typical Saturday night-the restaurant was full, two large tables of hens and every other table full. 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
