If you're looking for a healthy place to eat with unique menu items and gluten free options... look somewhere else. This is your classic greasy restaurant with epic pizzas. I can usually scarf down a large pizza from regular pizza chains. I'll have 2 slices of Riverside pepperoni pizza and I'm done. Definitely a place to check out if you... More

Disappointed in the medium all dressed pizza! Lots of mozza, too much pepperoni and not enough veggies! A few small pieces of green pepper? It is a favourite pizza take out for many Cornwallites and for many years! If you like your pizza heavy with pepperoni than you will not be disappointed! It has a lot of taste and calories... More

Always Excellent pizza, always consistent, don't let the looks scare you. Fries, onion rings and pizza. Doesn't get any better in my opinion.

The pizza at riverside is great. If you want a thick pizza with lots of toppings this is your place. You won't need to eat four pieces to be full. Be warned interior is dated and needs reno.

I've been told that this restaurant is under new management. That may explain the terrible service we have received recently. Upon placing an order for delivery over the phone, we had not been told that there would be a wait of 60 plus minutes, as their one and only driver was making an out of town delivery. (We could have... More

Pizza doesn't get any better than this place, It could really use a remodelling and clean up but never had a bad one in all my years going ✅

Got the riverside special. It gets great reviews on foody websites. It's true the place is kind of run down - but doesn't that usually mean the pizza will be great. And it is - May be lacking sauce or it might be because there is so much meat. It will fill ya- the one in the pic is a... More

We met up with some friends for camping, and they brought a pizza. OMG, this wasn't just any pizza, it was the all dressed from this little restaurant in Cornwall. It had survived the journey,(about an hour) wasn't piping hot, but it was so good. I've never had one with that much topping. Looking forward to visiting that way again.... More

We waited an hour and a half the last two times we ordered - pizza was crap, cold and disappointing. Both times were during the week at about 7pm. Won't be ordering from here anymore, can't enjoy the yummy pizza cold. I feel bad for the driver (and his girlfriend in his car) because we were so "hangry" (hungry +... More

Great pizza. However, this place needs to get cleaned, painted and requires new furniture. Bathrooms are filthy. Don't understand why the EOHU has given this place a green certification. I ONLY get take out pizza there.
