Excellent as always
Have visited Riva on many occasions and never been disappointed. This visit was just as good as previous times. Great that it maintains such a high standard all round- welcoming, efficient and friendly staff, a wide choice on menu and food is always ‘spot on’. Particular favourites are the sea bass and the tiramisu. Well worth a visit.
First time visiting at lunchtime. We have been at night time so thought we would try lunch for a change.
We had a very enjoyable lunch. There was a good variety to choose from the menu. Food piping hot. Table service excellent. We will definitely return.
Contemporary Italian in Bothwell
Founded by the Di Ciacca family, Riva on Bothwell’s Main Street offers the finest contemporary and traditional Italian dishes. Housed in a bright, modern building, the two floor Italian restaurant seamlessly blends a chic steel and glass interior with striking vintage photos of old Ferraris.
As you might expect from a family-run Italian restaurant, Bothwell’s Riva is as child friendly as it is for great for groups. The children’s menu will keep the bambinos smiling while the large mezzanine area can be used exclusively for larger parties of families or friends.
Freshly cooked Italian dishes in Bothwell
From the innovative house specialities to traditional pasta dishes, all the food is cooked fresh on the premises at Riva in Bothwell.
