    Great food and location. Pleasant service but only one waiter for entire place so best not to be in a hurry. They are very nice and never rush you.

    The food was good, service was slow. Requested indoor dining ahead & was reserved. However, upon arrival indoor seating fully booked I was not happy about it. They said they cannot accommodate even though it was booked through OpenTable. It was very cold eating outdoor patio not enough heating lamps.

    Service was slow but to be fair the restaurant was understaffed that day. There was one waiter, servicing several tables. He was friendly but clearly overstretched.

    Really good food and service. It’s small so you need a reservation to be inside. A little loud for me, but may have just been the crowd that night ;) would definitely go again :)

    The ambiance and food was good, but the waiter was rushing us. We felt the waiter rushed to take our plates away and brought our bill to the table before asking if we would like anything else. We had to ask to see the dessert menu and proceeded to order desert. Although close to home and good food. I don’t think I will come back with that kind of service.

    The service was good and plentiful, decent value. A small wine list, and usually if you buy a bottle of their wine, they will comp corkage fee of another bottle of your wine. Atmosphere was good and would recommend. Disappointed in the convenience fee charge.

    The pesto gnocchi was wonderful but the paparadelle bolognese was disappointing. Eddie, our server, was a rock star, but the other gentleman on shift with him was rude and dismissive. We waited near 5 min before we were greeted by him and he made no effort to seat us quickly, despite having a reservation. There were only two tables sat at the time of our arrival, so the delay was confusing to me. His attitude was off putting and set the experience off on the wrong foot.

    The Gnocchi Gorgonzola was very delicious - I would highly recommend this dish. The other person in my party ordered the lamb special and thought it had a great plating and was well seasoned, but could have been a little more evenly cooked.

    I had heard and read some very good reviews of Ritrovo but my experience on Father’s Day was not satisfactory. I arrived early with my kids and wasn’t attended to for 5min even when waiting in front of the maitre d while he took one call after another without acknowledging my presence- not a good first impression! The service only got worse since our waiter only saw us three time during the 2hr dinner (menu, bread and water, and then dropping of check). Food was fantastic so kudos to the chef. It wasn’t until I paid that he finally wished me a Happy Father’s Day. They definitely will have to work to earn my business again.
