First time here and will definitely be back. Excellent food. Members of our group had fish, steak and veal and all thought they were excellent.

Nice staff. Food average at best. Meatballs too soft and mushy. The sauce was good but not extraordinary. Shrimp cocktail tasted like it was previously frozen. NY cheesecake was bland, crust tasteless. Bread basket tasted like supermarket quality. Too expensive for sub-par meal. Fool me once.

We dine at Rialto quite often because it NEVER disappoints. Food and service is always excellent. This time though the entire staff went over and above for our 44th anniversary. Thank you for making our night even more special.

As usual, very good. Seated immediately and was greeted by name (we have been here many times). Food was very good (although I had Rack of Lamb and I did not think it was their best). Nobody else had a problem and all of our plates were cleaned.

I would eat here every meal, every day! And would not exhaust the menu. The options are many and all delicious. But the pastas! Orgasmic! The sauce is Devine. Wonderful cocktails and warm, attentive service. Like family. A rare gem on the island!

We are always warmly greeted upon arrival. The bartender is always pleasant and makes good cocktails and the waiters are very friendly and efficient. This is one of our favorite restaurants and my husband and I are seasoned diners! Oh, sorry, the main reason you go out to eat-the food- the best around-the chef/owner Mario never disappoints! And his wife/hostess Tara is very lovely -making you feel at home!👍👌👍👌👍👌

Had a 7:30 reservation on a Friday night, got there by 7:10 & was seated immediately. Asked if the risotto could be had as an appetizer, no problem, & priced as a salad. The food was excellent, the service was very attentive while not being obtrusive. Highly recommend the risotto & the stuffed veal chop. Parked using the valet but there was available street parking if you wanted to walk. The restaurant filled up by eight but I didn't notice as I had my back to the front door and the noise level was so low that it wasn't noticeable which was a pleasant surprise for an excellent restaurant for a Friday night. It was my birthday & the manager didn't charge me for my dessert even though it was my first time here & I do not know anyone at this restaurant.

This was our first time eating at Risk to as we don't live in the area. I was expecting a simple Italian place but this was more of a high end meal. I don't want that taken as it was stuffy. The owner and staff are very friendly and it is a warm comfortable place. The food was very good. Crab/Avocado salad, baked clams, grilled clams, and bronzino were great. Cheese and olives nice starting touch just the right amount. Wine was also perfect. I might suggest improving the bread as my only critique.

Last time shrimp cocktail was offered on the prix fixed meal. On Tuesday the selections were not so interesting. The chicken dish last time was innovative and tasty, but the salmon was rather dry and overcooked. The kale salad was excellent.

Went for dinner on Sat. 2/17. This was only our second time at Rialto. We had to wait (not too long) for our table, and we hate waiting, but this is one restaurant where it's worth the wait. We sat at the bar which was perfect. When our table was ready someone came to the bar, took our drinks and carried them to our table. Very nice touch! The easisest way to describe Rialto is "excellent". Excellent service, excellent food, excellent desert (Zuccotto). VERY accommodating on how the food was prepared in terms of switching what came on the side and sauce. Bluepoint Oysters (special) , Swordfish and Linguine Seafood were all delicious and portions are just right. The sauce with the linguine was fantastic. The restaurant was "energetic" but we enjoy that atmosphere. Everything was perfect. We'll be back for sure.

For a Friday night in Lent I never missed tge meat. The seafood was very fresh. The homemade black pasta linguini was cooked perfectly and the sauce was seasoned correctly. I really enjoyed my evening there. The staff was friendly. The valet was talking on his cell phone and ignored me so I parked myself. That was probably the only downside to the evening. I’d go again!

It was valentine’s day so understandably they were very busy. We had an 830 reservation, were not seated until after 845 and didn’t even see our waiter until almost 9. Even when it started to clear out the service was incredibly slow.

Also, there was a prix fixe menu only, which wasn’t denotes on open table or their website.

All in all.. a meh experience.

They overbooked for Valentine’s Day so we waited 45 minutes after our reservation. The waiter was nice but service was slow.
Once again, the food was excellent.

There's no point in making a reservation at Rialto. If you are a regular you will be seated immediately - if not, you will be made to cool your heels in a tiny area between the door and the bar, squeezed this way and that by warmly welcomed "friends of Rialto" and servers. Despite our OT reservation we watched as multiple parties were seated while we were completely ignored (except for one perfunctory apology). Another restaurant might have offered drinks or dessert for the long wait, but even a sincere apology with updates would have made a difference. It's clear that the owners feel that occasional customers are not worth their time.
As for food and atmosphere: this is the Italian restaurant you went to 40 years ago - and that's not a compliment. A couple of olives and not-very-good bread to start, a dessert cart (!) to end, and mostly heavy ordinary dishes in between. There was one excellent seafood pasta dish, but otherwise nothing worth mentioning. Perfunctory service, sad interior, sketchy neighborhood, disappointing.
For friends of the owners who know which few dishes to order, live nearby, and park with the valet this may be a comfortable if not memorable experience. Otherwise, go elsewhere.

This was the worst dining experience we have had I. Years . We had an 8pm reservation and had dinner served after 19om. We were offered drinks in the House. Ans that did not occur. We felt like it was a chore to make us happy, which we weren’t, and instead watched everyone around us eat their dinner. This is a departure fro the Rialto we used ro dine at. Very disappointing!!!
