We had a citideal for Riva which was purchased before reading the reviews on this site. After reading we were braced for a mediocre experience at best. Maybe this made our meal all the more enjoyable because we were very nicely surprised. The service was very pleasant. The menu is perhaps limited but I enjoyed a delicious lamb shank with red wine jus while my partner had the Lasagne and salad. The lasagne was served quite quickly (suggests it wasn't cooked to order) but was piping hot throughout and very tasty. We shared the hazelnut brownie and icecream along with coffees. Genuinely couldn't fault the food. The kitchen is quite central to the narrow restaurant but that aside it is a quaint if casual kind of place. I do feel that the previous reviews did not reflect the experience we had and would suggest others try it and post for themselves. Best was the Lamb. Worst was the restaurant layout.
