This was a disappointing experience.Service was slow and the meal was not great.
Is it that time of the year when you avoid eating out to avoid the festive group bookings?
I suspect it is usually better but not on my visit.

service was not good (not attentive) the food was absolutely abysimal and the bill was high. The whole evening was a disaster. I do feel sorry, but I was shocked that in this day and age such a place gets off with this pretentious nonsense. I really do hope this was a one off.I would also commend to anyone thinking of going to take a torch as the lighting was so bad that I had to read the menu with the help of the candle on the table.

Worst pizza I have ever had. Waitress also misunderstood our order. Wine tasted like it had been watered down.

Popped into Riva by chance and had an excellent Italian meal. There are few Italian restaurants that I have been to in Scotland that are as good as this. 10/10 for service as well. What a great wee find.
