Visited on a Saturday night with my husband. The restaurant was completly full which is always a good sign but sometimes service suffers. Not the case here the service was excellent. Plenty to choose from on the menu. My husband ordered steak and it was cooked to perfection. I enjoyed a chicken caesar salad which was really tasty. To finish... More

Thanks so much to the staff of La Rivista for the amazing meal and atmosphere they provided me and my group of friends on July 5th! We couldn't have asked for more. It was a bizarre coincidence that the wife of one of our party arrived on a hen-do as we were eating dinner! Highly recommended!

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.
