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.
As always amazing service, food was fantastic and great live music! Can't wait to come back very soon!
Lovely lunch, good service
My husband and I shared a bruschetta which was delicious. I then had a gnocchi quattro formaggio and it seriously was the best gnocchi I’ve tasted in a long time! Tasty sauce and light gnocchi! My husband had the pork belly and said it too was delicious. We then shared a dessert of ricotta filled cannoli with chocolate ice cream. This was for our 39th wedding anniversary and we were treated like VIP’s! We were even presented with a lovely card signed by all the staff! The staff were so attentive and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back!
Excellent food, very impressed.
Lovely place, highly recommend
Friendly effic1et service without fuss Tasty reasonably priced food I'll be back
We have eaten at Riva 4 times since they opened Really lovely addition to the restaurants in town The bar area was really busy on Saturday but always a great atmosphere Love it We will be back
Quality of food and general ambience is very good, product knowledge of the wine waiter could be better but overall a very enjoyable evening.
Great atmosphere, catered well considering how busy the restaurant was. Food arrived pretty much on time without problem. Suggest whoever takes folks to the table asks about drinks initially rather than the client waiting a while? All good considering such a recently opened restaurant.
Enjoyed free Prosecco as extra birthday treat.
Best restaurant in Helensburgh, food great and staff so welcoming
Very enjoyable afternoon. Food is good but needs to be ramped up a bit to be great. Service was good but think it lacks a little finesse. I'm sure it's teething problems and when I next visit, I'm sure I will be happy to give top marks all round.
We visited Riva for my husbands seventieth birthday meal. Staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Very friend atmosphere. Food was delicious. Will definitely be back. Thank you for lovely night!
A fabulous night with fabulous food and fabulous service ! Can’t wait to go back 🍾
Excellent service, fun atmosphere. Lovely food. Get the DJ to go straight to more upbeat stuff.
Visited here Monday night. Lovely service so friendly. Our waitress was so lovely. Food was delicious. And great prices. Will defiantly be visiting again.
Food was lovely, staff are all very welcoming and friendly, will definitely be back.
Enjoyed another delicious meal. Mum thought her lamb was beautifully cooked, presented attractively and portion size was perfect.
Second visit in a fortnight. Loved it once more, food, staff, atmosphere everything just incredible. Look forward to going again
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.
