My wife and I had a great meal here on Saturday Oct 4th. We booked a table during the day and were glad that we had. We arrived for 8 and the restaurant was buzzing. We went for the three course for 25.99 which was excellent value. The food was delicious ,all three courses . If we were here mid week we would take up the three course and a bottle of wine for 2 for 59 euro. The service was first class . Looking forward to our next visit to La Rivista.

Thanks so much to the staff of La Rivista for the amazing meal and atmosphere they provided me and my group of friends on July 5th! We couldn't have asked for more. It was a bizarre coincidence that the wife of one of our party arrived on a hen-do as we were eating dinner! Highly recommended!

Nothing to dislike and everything to like. Staff friendly and attentive. Menu is very good with something for every ones taste. Could not be more different from our previous night in a certain Italian Restaurant on John Street were we left after 20 minutes without being asked if we wanted a refreshment as we looked at menu.
La Rivista has a modern interior, classy and atmospheric.
Recommend it to anyone who like authentic Italian Pizzas

We visited this restaurant twice whilst in Kilkenny, great food and gluten free options too ! I find it very difficult to eat out since becoming wheat intolerant, it was so nice to have a choice! Very helpful hosts! Hopefully we will be able to return when next on holiday. Certainly worth a visit.

After over a week touring Ireland and enjoying lots of fish and Guinness, we were desperate for a change and found it, wonderfully, at La Rivista. Fairly centrally located (just a half-block from where St. Kiaran Street joins the High Street at Parliament Street, it is wide open and welcoming. Service was prompt and friendly without being overbearing. The menu is mostly pasta and pizza, but this is no limitation; there were numerous, and appealing, varieties in both categories. We started with the antipasto, which was solid and tasty. The real pleasure began with the pizzas. My wife went for the Trentino, with goat cheese and parma ham, while I opted for the Diavolo, with salami and chili flakes. Both were excellent, with thin and crisp crust, fresh and flavorful toppings, and generous portions. So generous, in fact, that I can't comment on the desserts because we were too full. The bottle of a reasonably priced but very tasty Valpolicella made for a perfect dinner.

Thank Michael T
