Creative menu, true home made pasta and best of all order your wine by the bottle or by 250ml or by the glass. Service excellent. Seating decor shocking. Bring your own pillow.

Catching sight of the tagliatelle al cervo transported me back to Verona, four or five years ago. Sitting by the river, beneath lanterns and trees on the cobblestones, tucking into tagliatelle with horse ragù.

Osteria Riva has been embraced by a crew of regulars, drawn to the combination of excellent service, reasonable prices and simple, tasty dishes made with care. And with tempting options added to the specials board daily, there’s always an excuse to come back.

Staff are so accomodating. An authentic Italian restaurant. Tiramisu is the best. Try it. Highly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely come back to try other food in the menu.

As we stepped out onto the street we both commented on what a great homely feel this restaurant has and the people of Bondi should feel lucky they have such a wonderful local Italian restaurant on their doorstep. Can’t wait to come again.

The food was so good I completely forgot to take pictures I was eating as much as I could, the best Italian restaurant outside Italy for sure.
