Riva is an Italian restaurant, in the heart of Helensburgh, Scotland. Our food is a partnership between classic Italian flavours and strong Mediterranean influences, meaning each dish is bursting with exciting flavour and taste.
Lovely night in great surroundings with a lively atmosphere . Food was delicious. Only comment I would make is re the pizza I had. There was a generous portion of all the toppings on the pizza but I hadn’t read the fact that there was no tomato sauce base to this particular pizza which made it a bit lacking in overall flavour. A small point and will definitely return. A great addition to Helensburgh.
Delicious steak and seafood
If only the service could be a good as the food. I have now been twice with family and each time the food is delicious but issues with service. First time waiter was very polite and apologetic for delay. The second time none of our food arrived at same time for the starters and Dad had to wait 10 after we had our main. We requested desert but gave up after 20 minutes waiting. Promised drinks on house but order was lost so we paid and left. In fairness the main meal for my dad was taken off Bill. But service does need to improve next time I come back. Also deserts are focused on coffee base and limited.
Brilliant. The decor and atmosphere was great, the food was excellent and the service from the waiter Hamish couldn't be faulted. Cant wait to go back.
Staff were really good. Service with a smile. Desert was best bit. Pity i had to share it with other half.
Main course lasagne tasteless,stodgy was like eating sheets of pasta and sauce meat was in short supply. Told 2 staff members this when asked if I was enjoying my meal, neither of whom seemed too put out. Rose wine served warm. Dessert of panacotta not set properly as soon as you touched it with your spoon it collapsed leaving you with what looked like a plate of chocolate sauce. Sat at table for 8pm did not receive starter of chowder, which was the only good part of the meal, until almost 8.45. Would not use this establishment again.
Had an amazing evening Food was lovely, service was excellent and the restaurant had a great atmosphere Will definitely be back
Great food, great service. Would recommend enlarging the font size on menus and drinks menu. Very hard to read if reading glasses have been forgotten.
A very pleasant evening with very good food but waiting time of around forty minutes between ordering and the arrival of starters was too much.
Excellent selection on the menu and portion sizes generous. Service brilliant and decorated beautifully. The chef even came out to ask if we were enjoying our lunch. Highly recommend a visit.
Booked a table for 8.30, time changed to 8 on the day of the booking by the restaurant via email. Arrived on time and didn't get seated until 10 to 9, by which time numerous items on the menu were unavailable. WHERE IS THE GARLIC BREAD? 🤔
Enjoyed our evening, very pleasant staff and we enjoyed our meal
Our table wasn't ready in time when we arrived but apart from that the service was great, food was delicious and staff were friendly.
Service was great staff really friendly and attentive.
Enjoyable , good food and great service. Like the seaside decor, friendly atmosphere
Fresh fabulous and filing too, I brought my husband for birthday along with my daughter we all left super full and all enjoyed the new restaurant. Where the gluten free bread for my pate wasn’t available the chef did extremely well and provided a gluten free foccacia - we were served extremely well and cared for by a lovely friendly young lady. Well done team Riva
A wonderful night had by all.. definately be back soon! Thank you
Food was beautifully presented and delicious. Service was quick and efficient, however, could maybe do with being a little more supervised as it was a bit disjointed with dishes going to tables that hadn’t ordered them. Just due to inexperience and easily fixed. Overall a great restaurant and will definitely visit again.
