After hearing good reviews about this restaurant I was deeply disappointed with the table service. The waitress was extremely rude and abrupt and not helpful and did not smile once during her service. I had to ask 3 times for table water she asked if...we wanted originally. Every time she came to our table I felt like we were annoying. I would not go back and won’t be recommending this restaurant.More

We were certainly well looked after tonight. Some quick drinks and nibbles, that included some tasty olives and the best calamari I’ve had for some time. We all decided on the snapper which was a nice piece of fish, cooked perfectly with accompanying asparagus and...smashed potato. We continued our smashed theme with smashed baklava and ice cream. It’s been a while but must revisit soon.More

Lucky I made a reservation at this fabulous restaurant, very popular and busy. The staff were exceptional and very attentive even with the restaurant full they consciously checked in with our table to see that all was going well throughout the evening. The gnocchi was...cooked perfectly (al dente) and melted in your mouth and the flavour of the beef Ragu was amazing, word out from the others at my table was that the pork belly was very tasty with generous pieces and very filling and the house specialty of Cacio E Pepe was delicious. Nothing nicer to share time with friends at a lovely restaurant that serves quality produce and always with a smile.More

We were very excited for the dinner after seeing good reviews. Unfortunately 2 tables left as we waited an hour for dinner and then out came 3 out of the 4 meals . The 4th meal took 30mins longer then the rest. The kids chips...and nuggets were brilliant . The kids Mac and cheese on the other hand was absolutely disgusting. I cant remember the last time we didn't pay for a meal but we refused to pay because we actually had to take our son to Macca's afterwards. My husband had the meatlovers pizza which was fine .I made the big mistake of choosing a gnocci . The sauce was lovely ,the gnocci on the other hand was like hard balls of left over dough my son had made out of his recent play dough .I struggled to swallow 3 and then decided that was it for me . The rocket and pear salad I had on the side was great but I suppose it's rocket and pear so not hard to messup . Super disappointing. Felt very sorry for the waitresses who were actually nice people and tried their best but couldn't help that the chefs couldn't keep up or produce good food .More

The menu here is simple and more on the Italian side. We had gnocchi and risotto, both with slow cooked beef and these dishes, as well as the superb tiramisu were exceptional. The staff were super friendly and very efficient. Highly recommended.

We went for dinner at the Riviera Bar & Grill for our anniversary. The food was extremely tasty- definitely exceeded expectations. The cacio e Pepe was exceptionally tasty. The service was great and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. Definitely recommend to everyone passing through.

Over the past couple of years I’ve had a real Love-Disappointment relationship with this restaurant. In the past 8 months I’ve really enjoyed venturing there till last month when I paid good money for duck & ended up with an entree size meal in relation...to the duck, there’s no excuses for that, especially in this very competitive local market.More

Everything was "as usual"- lovely food and excellent service. We always enjoy our visits and Christmas lunch was no exception. Even with a crowd all arriving around the same time the service was smooth and impeccable and the menu was varied and interesting. Thanks again...Riviera - we will be back.More

Was a bit of a surprise. The restaurant is both comfortable, nicely decorated and the food is good. Was very busy and staff were making the best effort they could.
