WATCH: Riva Blu on Castle Street tells us all about their exclusive summer deals
We take a look at the stunning Riva Blu on the corner of Castle Street and meet Helen Bamford as she tells us all about the venue.
DECISIONS, decisions: are you meeting up with your friends for a morning catch-up and a Bottomless Brunch, meeting up with the family over a bowl of pasta, or are you getting ready for the evening and joining the Cocktail Club?
Or… why not do all three?
Summer is here, and Riva Blu is the perfect place to put your social life back on the priority pile and enjoy all the things you’ve been missing over the past few years.
Located on the corner of Castle Street and Dale Street (ideal for catching those rays on its outdoor terrace), Riva Blu is a superb authentic Italian restaurant.
It’s in the beautiful Grade II listed building that was once the Midland Bank, but these days it’s less about base rates and overdrafts and more about betting on fabulous food, great atmosphere and rediscovering the balance in your life.
There’s a specially created menu filled with fabulous dishes using the best of the country and locally sourced ingredients, from classic Italian dishes like spaghetti carbonara, lasagna, pizza Margherita and veal Milanese to signature dishes. specially designed.
Guests love his Arancine, crispy risotto balls with truffles, mozzarella and truffle mayonnaise; Lobster linguine that offers a hint of the Amalfi Coast right here in Liverpool, and its perfect Parma ham pizza, cooked in a wood oven by perfectly trained pizza makers.
Without forgetting its essential desserts, such as the Bombolini, a trio of Italian donuts with three different toppings! With an open kitchen in the center of the restaurant, you can watch as the kitchen team cooks all your favorite dishes.
And although it is about food, it is not JUST about food.
You can have a drink in the beautiful island bar or head to the terrace to sample its range of Italian wines, beers and spirits – or perhaps one of Rive Blu’s signature cocktails. (We love the Cry Me A Riva, Absolut Watermelon Vodka, and passion fruit liqueur with raspberries, peach, lemon and cranberry!).
