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.
A fantastic restaurant with very friendly staff and cosy atmosphere. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection and we can highly recommended trying the seafood dishes too. If in the Helensburgh area Riva is well worth a visit!
lovely place, great staff and food, will be back.
Lovely meal, great service and good value.
Server was happy to make a suggestion not on the menu to suit my guest’s taste. As she said “all our pastas are freshly made so something different is no problem “.The dish was outstanding. Absolutely excellent! Thanks to the chef.
Was recommended by a friend who Said the service was hit and miss. Absolutely amazing experience. Would definitely highly recommend.
Superb Welcoming relaxed atmosphere Simple good quality food and lovely wine Great friendly helpful staff
Friendly staff ,great atmosphere, great food highly recommend .
Food and service were excellent once again! A few small negative comments: kitchen staff were obviously at an external door smoking, as we could smell cigarette smoke from our table; kitchen staff were at times singing quite loudly in the kitchen, which we could clearly hear from our table; a male member of staff had the annoying habit of walking from kitchen area to front of restaurant talking loudly to a staff member at the other end of the restaurant. These last 2 negative points were rather annoying when you’re trying to have a conversation!
Pizza base was a bit soggy but otherwise lovely meal
Lovely first experience at Riva. Very impressed with the service, food and atmosphere.
Roberto Enzo enhanced the atmosphere for us. The food was excellent AGAIN!! Lovely evening.
Food was lovely though my husband felt the tiramisu was not very tasty. Staff were very friendly and helpful and didn't rush us.
Great atmosphere, service and food, outstanding value for money.
Very disappointed that the description of food wasn't what was served . Calzone pizza had no meatballs in them . Did mention it to waitress but all she could say was she told chef but he didn't speak much English ! And fries we ordered were not all brought with the meals .
A great place to take friends - family or even alone! Superb and friendly atmosphere!
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.
