I have been going to Ritorno for years and have never had anything but a great experience. I was there for lunch last week though and was very impressed with what I had so I decided to finally write a review. There were 3 of us, one had a pizza, one a salad and I had the appetizer meatball stuffed... More

It was the August long week end... out for dinner... the most annoying thing is when the waitress opens her mouth and says "hello GUYS". I'm shocked... this is not a redneck's bar or a strip joint. DON'T address me like that!!! Anyway, the service was very slow. The food was ok. The waitress.... forget her... she should be pumping... More

As I had the day off on Monday Civic Day we decided to go for lunch at Ritorno. We have been to this restaurant a least six times before. Prior visits very good but the service and the food are hit and miss.This place can get very busy during the week and at weekends. Be prepared to wait for your... More

This is a difficult spot to review. Service is consistently excellent. The noise level is reasonable. You don't have to shout to be heard. However, the food is hit and miss. The apps and salads are great, the pasta not so much. I had a carbonara. It tasted great but had none of the creaminess I expected. Likewise my partner... More

While my choice is almost always the Veal Parmigana, other members of the family have experimented with the gnocchi, the pizza and a variety of entrees. We have been there or ordered take-out about half a dozen times now, in the past year and a half. I've never had any trouble getting a seat or good service on the take-out,... More

The food here is consistently good and we've been at least 5 times. The gnocchi is the best I've had in a mid level restaurant by far. The appetizers are very good such that you have to be careful not to get full before your entree arrives. They have allowed us to make substitutions due to allergies and preferences. The... More

Decor boring. Bread stale. Music was too loud. Pizza soggy and uninteresting. Special shrimp pasta was OK but nothing special for a night out We will not return!

When we went here for our 25th wedding celebration they sat us by the front window as the place wasn't busy. Any time I drive past this place on the highway there are always people sitting by the window. I hope & trust the management of this place isn't doing this to make the place look busy.

We were dissappointed when we decided to meet friends here for a Friday night dinner. We were surprised by the poor service, mediocre food and the extremely overpriced bill. The tables were too close and the room was as noisy as a mall food court, hardly the atmosphere for fine dining or to warrant the bill. We won't be back... More
