Exceptional food and service!
Food was excellent and all the staff were great and engaging!
Food and service was excellent.
Ask for Devlin.
Brunch was fantastic and so were the Mimosas. First time to eat here during the day as opposed to Dinner (which is also very good). Will definitely be back. Service was also wonderful.
Riondo’s was amazing! Our first time in, but definitely not our last. The fresh pasta was some of the best we’ve ever had and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Calimari was room temperature, and chewy. Pasta dishes (Chicken Picatta and Polla Rosa) were just subpar. My wife said the wine was the best part of the dinner. Not worth what we paid.
Everything excellent as always. Great service. Great wine list
The dinner was absolutely amazing ❤️ We truly enjoyed it.
Food bland expensive , not much taste risotto not good at all
Had the pasta with duck, but it was mainly pasta with a very small amount of shredded duck. I think it was excessive to pay 38.00 for that dish. My husband had the ciopinno and it was very dry. We’ve been there many times before but this is the first time that food was not only expensive but not good.
Dinner was fine, salad was just OK drinks were good.
Enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar and the service was impeccable!
Don and his staff always take care of my HH group.👍🏻🍷☕️🥂🍸🍾🥂🍷🍕🥖🍜
Annuversary dinner, but nothing offered by the restaurant….. very good appetizer. Entrees good, not great.
Lovely historic building. The osso bucco was incredible! Nice wine list.
A perfect place to celebrate Christmas with our family. We ordered the cannelloni, the eggplant tower, the cioppino and two specials of veal and filet mignon. Everyone was thrilled with their entree choices. Richard is an exceptional server!
Wonderful octopus app and break chop. Service was terrific
Christmas Eve Dinner was great dining at the bar with Bradley and Yvonne taking great care of us. The duck and pasta dish was very good along with the veal dish.
Great patio seating with fun and friendly service. Delicious gluten free options.
Sat outside. Great service. Food was good.
Riondos is always a treat. Honestly, though, I'll stick with simpler dishes than the duck I ordered. It seemed too much to even taste the duck.
Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Gluten free options stated clearly on the menu. Will be back, for sure!
First time visiting as Riondo’s. Just moved to Galveston and we’re looking for our go to Italian restaurant. We found it! Although very busy during Dickens on the Strand, The atmosphere and food were both excellent! Especially the veal piccata . We went early and would recommend that time for families and later 7-8 pm if you want a more intimate dinner. Don the owner took the time to chat with us, Rico is an excellent chef who has earned a good reputation and Kathleen and the rest of the team provided great service . We will see you soon.

Riondo’s is our absolute favorite! The brunch is delicious, the drinks are perfect, and the best service!
Outstanding!!! The wine list excellent. Enjoy professionally prepared food.
Food and service were impeccable.! It was our first visit and it did not disappoint. Our server, Christian, was attentive and knowledgeable. Presentation and timing between plates was perfect. Cozy little spot in the corner made for a romantic evening. Will definitely be back!
The staff was friendly and helpful. Beverage and entree selections were outstanding. Meals delicious and plentiful. Atmosphere is intimate and relaxing. Always choose Riondo’s for special celebrations.
We have gone here before and loved everything. Tonight my husbands shrimp linguine only had 5 shrimp, the waitress recommended the chocolate ganache for dessert it was dry. My scallops dish and my dessert was delicious. The service was flaky, we had to ask for everything.
We only had great experiences before, this was quite disappointing.
Yvonne was VERY attentive and SUPER customer orientated!!! Appreciated her spectacular service.
We always think of Riondo’s as our first place to go when we go on date night. It’s just a great atmosphere, the management is top notch, the wait staff is awesome and the food is excellent.
Every time wonderful food and knowledgeable gracious servers. We are local and enjoy eating here with friends, family casual or formal.
FABULOUS!!! We plan on going back every time we visit Galveston. But please make your reservations for early dinner (5:30-ish) as it gets very crowded and noisy by about 7:00 (great ambience but it's small, so difficult to avoid noisy situations). Outstanding food, unique menu, terrific service and beautiful surroundings! What more could you ask for?
Happy Hour appetizers and drinks are awesome. We will be back.
Everything we have ever tried here has been spot on. Especially fond of the Lasagna, Pizzas & Shrimp Scampi Linguine! Always a great dining experience at Riondo’s.
Good and service excellent.
Great service! Awesome management! Outstanding ownership!!
We sat outside on a very nice fall evening, watching the parties of Halloween trick or treaters walk up and down the Strand. The food was as always very good, as was the Sangria. Price was commensurate with the quality. This is one of my favorite places for good meal within walking distance of where we live.
Absolutely Wonderful!! Great food and relaxing atmosphere!
We started with the meatball appetizer, which was delicious, possibly the best meatballs I've had in a restaurant. They were flavorful and tender, with just a bit of sauce. My husband ordered the lasagna, which he absolutely loved. My entrée was the special of the evening, ravioli stuffed with yellowfin tuna. It was in a rich cream sauce, with shrimp topping it all. Not only was it delicious, but it was a very generous portion.
Great food and service. Excellent restaurant.
They were out of the items (steak) that we went for and offered a poor substitute. Very small portion for price.
