We ate at Riva Friday evening , having failed to book we were told they would have a table for us about an hour after we got there the lady member of staff was excellent making sure we could eat as soon as possible . The quality of food was second to none , and the views over he river were lovely .

The staff were some of the most pleasant I've ever come across , nothing too much trouble , we would defiantly recommend eating here if your in Inverness .

The food was lovely and the atmosphere was romantic, however we were late booking so couldn't get a table till 9.30pm and unfortunately we felt rushed as they were clearing up with a view to shutting up shop at 10.30pm, not ideal. So, book early to get an earlier time, giving you more time to enjoy the lovely food and atmosphere.

Most of the reviews here are for the downstairs Italian. We however went for a pizza on their pizzeria above the Italian. The pizzas were no better than average. The pizzas in chains are better. Wouldn't go back to the pizzeria but maybe would give the downstairs Italian a try based on the reviews. It's a shame they don't put as much effort in to their pizzas.

Having been unable to find a table anywhere in Inverness on a busy Thursday night through a lack of foresight in not booking Riva found a table for us and we weren't disappointed with the food service or value either!

We enjoyed 2 beautiful 2 course meals here one busy Saturday night. The service was a little bit slower than we would have liked but it was very busy. My husbands steak was cooked perfectly medium rare as requested, however it was too tough for him to eat so it was returned to the kitchen with no questioning and removed from our bill. We were too full for dessert but the chocolate brownie served with the coffee was a beautiful way to end a lovely meal.
