The bread and first glass of water was fast. After that........it fell apart. Server took order and said that it wouldn't take any longer than 20 min. It was about that long in getting our salads. Food arrived Luke warm, we were asked do you need anything else? I asked for refill on water, about 3/4 done my meal, I... More

We dined here with some friends on New Year's Eve. None of us had eaten at Riazzi's before and what a great surprise, it was really good. Everything from the bread to dessert was delicious. The service was good and the restaurant was packed. We will definitely plan to return to Riazzi's in the future as it is one of... More

Over the last 28 years, I've driven by Riazzi's, albeit infrequently, still never noticed the place. Located on the southwest corner of Alameda and Mill Ave., trees and neighborhoods camoflauge, allowing the building to blend in well. Aesthetically, there's nothing particularly inviting about Riazzi's - inside or out, with a messiness on the outside and an outdated interior. My friends... More

We've been to Riazzi's a few times and the food is very good. I like the Spinach Lasagne. We decided to get a take out order of cheese pizza and it was great! The cheese is good and there is not too much sauce. Try it!

Hadn't been to Riazzi's for awhile, it always is packed. We did go there a few days ago and it was great! The staff is very responsive and they do know the menu. I ordered a spinach lasagna with a salad (with their house Italian) and both were very tasty. I got a large enough portion of the lasagna that... More

We celebrated our anniversary dinner at Riazzi's last night. It's a tradition on many years, and we weren't disappointed. Riazzi's is a cozy, old-fashioned restaurant with comfortable padded booths, and where we sit in the bar, the lighting is dim and Italian music adds to the ambience. We started with the warm, ultra-fresh bread with butter and added the ample... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night... Appetizers were ok, my wife enjoyed her meal but when I ordered the Seafood Diavola everything appeared ok at first. Nicely cooked shrimp and scallops on a bed of spicy marinara sauce. HOWEVER, when I began to dig in the pasta they had hidden half of the muscles under the pasta... More

It was crowded - as usual - but everyone is greeted, seated, and has a drink in-hand in record time! It was fun to watch the servers running between two large parties, yet taking the time to make sure we got our wine, large antipasto, and garlic bread - a peasant's dinner! In the past we have ordered different pasta... More

First time at Riazzi's tonight. Had a celebration for 20 people. Table was ready as promised. I was first to arrive but waiter greeted me quickly and offered to take my drink order. There were already 8-10 parties seated at 5:30 PM -good start. As guests arrived, same good service was offered. Lots of different dishes ordered but I'll stick... More
