May I say that we ate here twice in our 7 day stay. My husband raved on about his Calzone pizza which looked fab on our 1st visit. We also had Margarita, burger and gluten free pesto, goats cheese and rocket pizza - they all tasted delicious! My son is a fussy eater and ALWAYS has margarita. He said it was the best one he had ever had. Anyway on our final night he decided he would live dangerously and have a Calzone! First time in his 17 years of life! To be honest, We all had the Calzone as we didn't want to feel 'pizza envy'. They were all fabulous, tasty and the dough was spot on. The staff were very attentive and even had a bit banter with us. 10/10 Cafe Riva team - well done and keep up the good work.

Have eaten at the restaurant twice this week due to us enjoying the food on the first visit. On our first visit the waiting staff were lovely. Food lovely and tasty and nothing being a problem.
Fast forward to the next meal... I had the same dish as I did the first time and it was completely different. The Sauce was more tomato, only 2 king prawns, and not as tasty???
We had Italian fish cakes as a starter. They were nice but looked bought in rather than made and would question the Italian herbs!
The waiting staff on the 2nd visit started off awful with us having to get our own menus and being ignored before ordering drinks which arrived with one being wrong. Once we moved inside the staff were better.
Tonight might just have been a one off and had we just eaten there once it would have been a 5* review.

We had dinner here during their 'happy hour' which is worth doing. We actually ate here a year ago on hols so were happy to come back. Food is good, decent vegetarian selection and good kids meals too. Food came pretty quickly but not so quick that it had come out of a microwave - tasted freshly made. Would definitely recommend especially if you have hungry children to feed!
