Deliciousioso!

Very pretty decor. Attentive wait staff. For lunch, we had the linguine with fresh peas snd prociutto. Just perfect. Not too heavy, the pea shoots added a lovely green note. Dining partner had thr caesar and asked to have some grilled shrimp added. No problem at Ritorno. And yes we would like the... read more

We were welcomed and serviced very well. Waitress and her team were great and all aspects. It is not a fast food place but also not a fancy restaurant. A Italian family restaurant with a good offering. The food was okay. We both ordered one of their thin crust pizza's and there were pretty good - but certainly not outstanding.... More

We go to Ritorno fairly regularly. It's a stand by favourite close to our house. The antipasto is always amazing. I'll usually order the special as my main, but the pasta dishes are always good. The only thing that keeps me from giving it higher praise, after at least 15 visits in two years, is that they rarely cook fish... More

We came here for my birthday so we made sure we made a reservation. The table was ready and set when we got there so we got seated right away. This was our first time here and was nice to see lots of big families there. It was a bit slow to get our food but I think it's because... More

Always a concern when I ask wait staff about the place of origin of the one of the limited number of house listings and they don't know AND don't bother to go find out. Even more so when the place is not very busy and before I unload $100 or more! Food is good to ok esp. the calamari and... More

When I travel and go to a new Italian restaurant, I always like to test the quality of the restaurant with some classics that I know will be a total failure if the restaurant pays only lip service to italian cuisine. Right there at the supremum of "botched up" italian dishes are the classic 'Caesar's salad' (although it is not... More

Ritorno is a small Italian restaurant in Oakville that looks and feels like an authentic family trattoria. We recently took friends to Ritorno expecting to have a great meal as we have had there in the past. What a disaster! After a drink at the bar while waiting for a table we had to wait 30 minutes to have our... More

Been here a few times and Ritorno delivered exceptional dishes and warm, accommodating service. From the traditional spaghetti and meatballs to the osso bucco (melt in your mouth), and the butternut squash (no longer on the menu sadly) each meal was prepared with a sophisticated balance of flavours but also reminded me of the best homemade meals made by Italian...

food was very good, portions were also adequate for one individual to eat. Overall the service provided by the waitress was also very good. I will go to this restaurant again

We discovered Ritorno's as our favourite local Italian restaurant 10 years ago, and we love it. My wife especially loves going to Ritorno's. The food is awesome and the staff is so welcoming and accommodating (even with modifications to the menu that we request, from time to time.) Sitting at the "food bar" overlooking the kitchen and all of the... More
