Had a very nice diner with my family and parents at la Rivista. We had an early bird and my daughter had a kids meal. Asparagus Risotto was delicious and the pizza's, salmon and lasagna were excellent. Good for families and food lovers in general.

We had excellent service and the food was even better than expected. We also had a great deal that included a bottle of wine. Can't beat the offer and the desert was included as well.

We made a reservation for this restaurant as we knew it would be busy. All staff members were friendly and efficient. Decor is warm and welcoming and the venue had a lovely lively atmosphere. We skipped starters and had main courses with dessert. The wine is lovely and my boyfriend was happy with heineken on tap. Menu caters very well... More

Lovely atmosphere in this restaurant. Feels very French! Great food. Try the four course menu. Good Value. Great staff and proprietor who are helpful but not intrusive. I would recommend highly.

Second time here, and just love it. Food is just delicious. We had the tiger prawns to start, full of flavour and cooked beautifully. For mains we had the lasagne (yum) and a chicken and bacon tagliatelli. Highly recommended, lovely atmosphere and great staff
