“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Visited this restaurant during Christmas school holidays and it was very busy. You will need to line up for tables to become vacant, although the staff will move groups to a pre-eating bar area as that frees up as well. From there, the service was exceptional. There were 5 people in our party and all entrees, mains and deserts were excellent. This is classified as an "Express" restaurant. At that, they were very good value for money. If you were paying full price it would be considered a bit on the expensive side. All in all an excellent place to dine out.

“A Sydney must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

For me, it's hard to separate between Messina and RivaReno like some of the reviewers are trying. The pistachio, my favourite are outstanding at both and impossible for me to pick. The almond based flavour is definitely my other highlight at RivaReno.

But it's really the fact that you're not in a long queue and treated like cattle but instead greeted with the most attentive and genuine service, along with a relaxed atmosphere at RivaReno that made me switch.
