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...

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

Ritorno's is a great Italian spot! The food is excellent and the service is usually quite quick depending on the night. Great place for a large group of people.

This was my 7th visit to Julia Hanna's restaurant, Ritorno, and only my 3rd for dinner, as it is close to my workplace and a fantastic lunch venue, if time permits. My wife joined me to celebrate my forthcoming retirement, and we were lucky enough to find Chef Julia there to greet us. A more involved, ebullient and welcoming chef/owner... More

Great service and the familiar atmosphere made feel back at home in Oakville. We have had the great fortune at dining here a couple of times a year while visiting family in Oakville, and have never been disappointed. This evening, I ventured a little further off my comfort zone to enjoy new tastes and experiences. This was certainly a great... More

The veal scallopine in roasted mushroom and marsala cream sauce was delicious over the mashed potatoes, green beans and roasted red peppers. It was just what I felt like. My two friends ordered different lunches, and they were equally impressed. Delicious, hot food, friendly staff and beautiful surroundings!

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
