In my experience the food and service has been great at Ritorno. I have never not enjoyed the food and the servers have always been helpful.

Five of us went for a birthday dinner at Ritorno's and I was really disappointed. We were told this place was one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. That was not our experience.

This restaurant has been raved about by friends. So we went for lunch. After being seated, we got the wine menu and ordered a half litre of butterfield Cabernet Sauvignon. The waitress returned only to say that they had run out! So, I then ordered 1/2 litre of Valpolicella. While we looked at the menu, the waitress asked if we... More

This used to be a great local restaurant until a change in management. The wait for tables is now ridiculous, the serving staff used to be senior staff and fantastic they are no longer there for the most part. Most of all, the quality of food is horrible when it used to be great.....with the attitude of the new manager... More

Good food and wines and situated in a great shopping area of Oak Walk/Oak Park Dr. in North Oakville. Easy to find at the main intersection of Dundas St. and Trafalgar Rd.

Had dinner here with my wife Thursday night. Our server was a young English girl and was very pleasant and very attentive. This always makes a big difference to any restaurant. We shared a wonderful thin crust pizza and started with the calamari. The food and service were excellent and we will go back again.

We've eaten here a few times ... the menu has a good selection of pasta, meat, fish. The portions are large. The service is OK. Dining area is nice, more casual. On this occasion the "special" fish cakes were delicious, the portion is not too big but a good size. It's the first time we tried the bruschetta and we... More

Ritorno's is very close to home and has been our "regular" more or less, for the last 8 years. Morgan is the absolutely best and is always so in tuned to her guests preferences. The food is usually very good, well presented and decently priced.

I guess it didn't help that I went to Spago in Windsor, Ontario, less than two weeks ago. Both places are alike in that they provide Italian dishes. However, Spago gives bigger portions (left full), offers more than minimum slivers of veal in its dishes, and is less expensive (at least $6-$8/main course). Reason that Spago is in the top... More
