Rialto has been named a four star restaurant for three consecutive years by the Boston Globe. Bringing classic Italian cuisine to the American people, the restaurant is more than just an eatery. It offers a comfortable and homey environment where diners can unwind, relax and enjoy the delicacies prepared by its chef. The theme of the cuisine at Rialto stays true to its Italian core but the menu undergoes seasonal changes based on the best seasonal produce available locally.
The inside of the restaurant is decorated to bring Italian culture to life. The walls have murals of local painters hanging over them. Its menu serves up some real delights, Some of the delights available at Rialto include Roasted Duck Sandwich, Ricotta and Pancetta and hazelnuts.
We were at the last seating of the last night of Rialto. We have loved it for years. The food was of course amazing. The duck was especially memorable, and the scallops melted in your mouth. Chef Jody Adams came to our table and reminisced with us, and when my wife got teary, Jody gave her a great big hug. An unforgettable evening - one we'll treasure. Thank you Jody for many years of moments we treasure. All the best in your new place.
This was Rialto's last night - it is closing. Many of us wanted to be there for the occasion. Jody Adams, a wonderful chef, is moving on to new pastures. The menu offered nothing novel to celebrate the departure (not sure celebrate is the proper word), but the old standards would definitely have been worth the price of admission. Sadly, the cooks in the kitchen were not up to their usual excellent level of performance, and some of the entrees were not properly prepared. One even had to be sent back twice before an alternative was ordered, which itself was of mediocre quality. Perhaps it is understandable that people working in a signature restaurant that was closing may have been distracted by events. But all this is moot - Rialto is no more.
Last service at this amazing place..celebrating 22 years of a landmark institution...thank you Jody and staff (past and present)... Xox
Pre-theater dinner. Enjoyed the variety of menu options.
Always a favorite! So sorry this restaurant closed. We'll miss the Italian regional dinners. Looking forward to trying Porto!
Awesome restaurant! Everything about Rialto is outstanding.
Delicious Italian food in Cambridge. The dining area is inviting,the menu and wine list superb and our started the asparagus and the canneloni to follow were delicious not to mention the delectable desserts.
We are sad that Riato is now closing. It has been our go-to restaurant for special occasions and restaurant week for a very long time - we wish Jody Adams good luck in her new restaurant venture.
Wonderful, as always. So sad that it is closing. We will miss it.
Amazing meal. Sad to see this place closing
Always one of our favorite restaurants.
The Service, food and ambiance were exceptional.
Good luck to the entire staff, it's been a great run.
The Rialto has been a go-to special occasion place for us for decades. Very sad to see it close. The food was always great and the service exceptional.
Jody Adams is a great chef. But she is departing Rialto, and we don't know what will happen next.
On special occasions I will always pick Rialto's as my favorite restaurant, for it's food, service, and ambiance. I have been eating there for many year's and it has never let me down. Rialto's is wonderful. Thank you
Rialto is always excellent.
It's worth spending the evening for the food, service& presentation .
We had another wonderful meal. Everything was delicious.
We had exceptional service and wonderful food. Highly recommend.
Superb food, service and overall experience, as always! We love Rialto, it never fails to excel in every way. We will deeply miss this very special restaurant when it closes. Bravo Jody, for years of excellence at Rialto. It has been a joy and pleasure to frequent. We look forward to coming back as often as possible before you close.
Rialto consistently has the best and most innovative Italian food in greater Boston. It's perfect for a high class business meal or date.
I feel guilty because I made the reservation but my boyfriend paid. When you have a restaurant where the average entree is $36.00 you need to offer something special. I had roast duck at $42.00 which was dry, tasteless, and shockingly bad.
Burrata was ok but unimaginative and nothing to write home about. A very disappointing meal from start to finish. I believe this is the worst review I have ever written.
