Rialto Ristorante reviews from OpenTable diners

    The food was very good. Had to search for our server a couple of times. Forgot glass of wine my boyfriend ordered. But overall she was average. The entertainment and noise level was awful. The piano was too loud, the bongos were too loud and had to shout across the table to have a conversation. The restaurant décor is great but needs better entertainment and not so loud. If go back will sit outside to avoid the loudness.

    Our waiter was extremely helpful and polite. His good service and the food that we were eventually served being delicious (with one exception) did not overcome our disappointment with the VERY long wait for the food to be served. The restaurant was almost empty so why did it take at least 30 minutes to get our food? The one dish that was not good was chicken francese -- very dry and tough chicken breast.

    You can tell the restaurant is trying very hard but the food is very standard. I've tried this place three times, wanting it to exceed because of the courteous service, but it never impresses.

    The service was amazingly bad.. I actually started timing how long it would be before we saw our waittress.. When we finally got served.. my food order was completely wrong.. and I was told that this was due to a language barrier between the chef and the waittress... Thats funny cos I simply ordered directly off the menu.. Multiple people were complaining about the service.. I hope at least their food was correct.. I will never be back.

    Found this by chance on Open Table when looking for a place to do Valentine's Day at. I was amazed with the food, the staff, the music, and even the manager. The staff was prompt and Charley (I apologize if I spelled her name wrong) was extremely attentive to us and kept the 5 course Vday meal moving for us. The manager stopped by twice to chat and thank us for coming. We joked over our ties and having our wives choose them for us. What a GREAT PLACE to go for any occasion, I will definitely be back. If you're questioning going or not, GO! You will NOT be disappointed. Let them give you the experience they gave my wife and I.

    . Grilled shrimp wrapped in bacon.....mouth watering. NY strip with arugula.....melted in mouth. pasta fagioli was a little under-seasoned but still good. A little more veggies might have worked better. Tomato-basil soup.....very rich and bursting with tomato flavor. watermelon salad was refreshing, but needed a few more bleu cheese crumbles and artichoke salad was good as well. Osso bucco was tender, however was a tad dry. Next time the meat should soak in the braising liquid overnight to retain moisture and flavor. risotto was spot on. Salmon had doux sauces, a spinach puree and a romesco sauce. Samon was perfectly cooked and sauces complimented well. Dessert was a very nice cheesecake and a semifreddo with pistachios was perfect

    Great atmosphere, venue and decor. Live music was very good and the place appears to have potential. Service overall was good, food came out on a timely manner and the server consistently reached out to us to ensure all was well. My wife ordered the clam linguini special and she loved it, couldn't stop talking about it, my ordered of the lobster mac and cheese was to the contrary. The dish barely had any taste, sauce was way to soupy and very poorly executed. Will probably return and give another chance but stay away from the Mac and Cheese, I honestly wouldn't pay $3 for it or even eat it for free, way better in other restaurants for way cheaper price.

    We are locals, but had never seen this place before. A search of reviews brought up this great place. a 15 min drive from the tourist area and wow. The food was great, our server was great, and the live music just added to the experience. We will be back!

    service was spotty as the server was overwhelmed by being triple sat. The veal/shrimp special was very good, however the shrimp were NOT the u-10's promised by the server. They were 13-15 at best but probably 16-20. The Stromboli would have been very good except that it had sat in the window for a while and the cheese had congealed from cooling off. Also my swordfish had waited too long to be served and just before serving, the flavored, ice cold butter was placed on top so when it arrived, the fish and butter was cold. flash it under the salamander to warm fish and melt butter.On the plus side, they recovered quickly and i was presented another fish that, in fact was hot and perfectly cooked this time.

    Veal marsala was tender but lacking in marsala reduction. The pasta was overcooked and sauce was bland and unnoteworthy. Carpaccio was very nice and the bread was delicious. Penne ala vodka was very strong in pancetta flavor and again pasta overcooked

    We were in the mood for Italian food, and this place wasn't far from our resort. It's a casual neighborhood place, and the host and servers were very friendly. The food was delicious, especially the gnocchi with pesto, which was excellent. Definitely a cut above chain restaurants and a nice change from the park food we'd been eating.

    My husband and I had an enjoyable lunch. The portions were generous and very tasty. It is a quiet and quaint restaurant. We will return.
