“Fab food & wine”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

My husband and i booked here as we love italian food. They did not disappoint us!
the staff were attentive but not over so and even though it was busy we didn't have to wait long for our food. Our meal was delicious and came well presented. Would eat here again over any chain restaurant in Inverness.

Reviewed January 24, 2014

Good food, good service, good prices. Can be busy early evening with theater goers so either book a table or dine after 7.30.

“Probably the third and best visit yet”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Been to Riva a few times on previous visits to Inverness.

Always good and a great location overlooking the River Ness.

Service on this occasion was probably the best it has been and food the usual consistent high quality.

I had the seafood linguine for my main - was excellent.

Despite being out of season on this Friday in January the restaurant was pretty much full when we went along at 8. Always best to book, we nearly didn't! And try and get a window seat if you can :-)

“A great find in Inverness”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Can't believe it has taken us this long to find such a lovely restaurant in Inverness. Met with parents for a birthday dinner and the food, location, service and wine were all fabulous. Starters included butternut squash and pepper soup, a risotto which husband wished he had ordered as his main and a slate full of sliced meat, olives and rocket. Mains included my gnocci which was just lovely, roast lamb on potatoes, vegetarian pasta and a chicken pasta - again delicious and large portions so no puddings required.

Will definitely return and like I say, can't believe its taken us this long to find high quality food in Inverness.
