Great service . Good was outstanding. We will go back .
Great service and lovely place with average quality food
One of the best restaurants in Galveston.
Food was a little sub-par this visit. Not sure why but perhaps it was because they appeared to be extremely busy.
Very loud with several large parties. Food was just so-so. Service was fine.
We always enjoy Riondos. The food is carefully prepared and lovingly served. One of our favorites in Galveston.
Delicious cuisine and our waitress was delightful.
Outstanding food and service, our waiter Josh was pure class. A little pricey but great every now and then.
Best resturant in Galveston by far! Staff very attentive! Great managment as well as ownership! I would make the 10 hour drive to Galveston JUST to eat there!
OUTSTANDING!!! We had excellent service and food. A little warm but very nice sitting outside.
Overall, the food was good but I did not think it was quite the quality I expected from a more expensive restaurant.
The food was excellent and the service was great!!!
This was our first time to the restaurant. The food was excellent and we will definitely come back. The service was outstanding. I had Branzini, it was delicious and also had house made Limoncello - it was quite nice. All around is a great place.
It’s was really really good food don’t get me wrong, but for hardly anyone being there the service was very slow. Wait or was very nice and had good recommendations though.
We loved Riondo's. The hostess was so helpful. We were delayed due to a meeting and the hostess was still able to accommodate us. The food was great. There were a few large groups who were very noisy, but we didn't let it bother us. We will be sure and visit again the next time we are in Galveston.
Good food, drinks, and good service. I didn’t like the brown plates they used during appetizers, they were unattractive and my husbands had a chip on it.
It was an excellent lunch for my son and his friends. The food was exceptional and the service was incredible! Couldn’t have asked for better!
We like to visit Riondo's on the Strand whenever we go to Galveston to a show at the Grand. It is a great place with good prices and excellent service. Josh was outstanding and went beyond what is expected as a waiter. Good wine list, cold beer and outstanding food.
Great whiskey selection and wine selection. Service is outstanding.
The service was outstanding as usual and the food and drinks exceeded our expectations. This is our favorite restaurant in Galveston and we are always happy with our experience there.
It was delicious and the service was amazing! We can’t wait to go back!!
Very consistent, never had anything substandard. Still best Italian restaurant around.
“Potato gnocchi man”
Main seating area had plenty of open tables but was sat in side room by ourselves. Room was nice but was weird being by ourselves. It was a father daughter (13yr old) dinner and so would have been better if had something less intimate.
Waiter didn’t get order right.
Waiter didn’t check back on us so incomplete meal got cold waiting or remainder.
Manager finally brought us a check.
We had a group of 6 and everyone loved their meals and the restaurant!
Very Solid Restaurant! Nice bar, great food located on the Strand, Win Win!!!
The entire evening from happy hour through our Mel was superb.
Veal was thin and overdone.
Seafood lasagna and sauce was excellent.
Service was young and somewhat stressed, but excellent.
Great food, wine and service!! Great value for the money. All of our dishes were excellent and the waiter was attentive and helpful on menu and wine selections! The restaurant is beautiful and all 4 of us had an exceptional evening!
A real find in Galveston. Delicious Italian. Excellent food, very fine service, pretty atmosphere. All of us enjoyed our dinners from the special that night being Lobster Ravioli, to the Gnocchi, to the Sicilian Eggplant Tower (mine and superb!). All the salads were very generous, fresh and delicious. The only slight disappointment was the Chocolate Ganache Cake which was quite dry and a poor choice we shared compared to all the other unique looking desserts. Try something else. Otherwise...loved it all!
Great service and delicious food! I would definitely recommend Riondo’s.
The restaurant was a bit loud but the food was great.
Overall very nice and will most definitely be back. Waitress seemed to have other things going on and we had to wait on a couple of instances.
Everything from the atmosphere to the food was excellent.
The restaurant is beautiful but too loud. Food was pretty good but not great and it was too pricey for the quality. Wine list was good. Service was very good.
Great service and food!! Mark did an amazing job taking care of us. Rico came out of the kitchen and greeted us and visited for a while. Highly recommend this place.
We were very pleased with the appetizer platter. All of us enjoyed our main course. The desserts were top notch. Service was excellent!
This is one of our favorite places in Galveston, service and food are awesome
Went here for my grad school graduation dinner with my family. Our service was great and the food was just as good. One of my favorite places to eat on the Strand now. We all had some type of seafood pasta and none of them disappointed. Also got a free dessert because we were celebrating. It’s been a while since I’ve had a waitstaff that attentive - hopefully we’ll be back soon!
We totally LOVE this place! All of the menu items we have chosen over all the several visits have been delicious!!! Our 2 elementary daughters love the food and the ambiance, especially the fish tank in the foyer. This is a must visit!
