    Kevin is a superb chef who can create memories. The food was spectacular as always. Everyone enjoyed themselves and can't wait to go back! Start off with an unusual cocktail - like the sangria with ice pop - continue with some wonderful small plates that are yummy, yummy and more yummy - continue with an entree - my favorite is his specialty Cacio Pepe done tableside......and then wow yourself with a dessert platter. You will thank me! ENJOY!!!

    Excellent food and service. Loved the music and ambiance. The extra mint essence was fun. The staff was above and beyond. The Oso Buco risotto dish and baked clams appetizer were delicious and the mini cannolis for dessert tasted fresh and light. Look forward to going back.

    We got there early for our reservation on a Thursday night and they seated us right away. It wasn't too crowded, but it was a little cold. The food was really good, but I couldn't eat it all in one sitting because it was very rich. I ordered the Rosa, my parents ordered the cacio and it was really good. My sister ordered risotto (don't remember which one, but no complaints). The guy who made the cacio was friendly and knowledgable. Our waiter was also really nice. The desert was also really good - my mom, sister, and I split the birthday desert platter and it was so much desert. The creme brulee was soo good. I'd definitely go back!

    The staff at Risotto are superb. Has a family restaurant feel. Not impressed that when we tell Open Table that it is for an anniversary that the information is not communicated to the restaurant (or not noticed). Great meal.

Disappointed the place down the street from my new house can not be a go to spot.

    Risotto has seen a real turnaround since a couple of years ago. More pasta selections, attentive wait staff, good cocktails. Kevin keeps the customers happy and is constantly cruising among the tables. Dark, speakeasy-like atmosphere contributes to a no pressure, leisurely, enjoyable meal. Signature dish is the cacio e pepe. Worth getting a dessert just to see the dry ice presentation. Good wine list moderately priced. Would recommend reservations due to restaurant size, along with the likelihood it will get a lot busier as more customers experience it. Finding parking is annoying, but that is no reflection on the restaurant.

    This little gem of an Italian restaurant is top shelf. It's fairly small, but plenty of room around each table, nicely decorated and tablecloths and candles everywhere. There's a nice hum on a Saturday night, but it's not noisy and conversation is easy to have. Our food, (special of the day salads, Lobster and Vegetables Risotto, and Shrimp & Mussels Risotto) was just fantastic. I cook and it's obvious everything is made from scratch and no shortcuts were taken. The seafood was cooked perfectly. Service is prompt, capable and unintrusive. I've been twice now, (had pasta and one of the fantastic beef dishes last time) and I'm adding this little chef's kiss of a restaurant to my frequent rotation.
