It is now called Risto's, named after the owner Cheryl's husband. The food is locally grown and prepared. The menu is short, seasonal but excellent.

Well prepared Italian food in a pleasant atmosphere. Small and very friendly staff, with ample opportunity to converse with the owner who is also the hostess. Food is always fresh, flavorful and not overly sauced or salted like so many other local chefs do. Try the risotto or the bolognese over linguine. Scrumptious,

Stopped in for a drink and to hear the live music. Nice friendly place! The place is owned by former Pittsburgh residents and is decked out in Steeler fashion.

The restaurant is just a bit "tired". The food is OK, but over priced for pasta. Down the road there are fresher hipper restaurants, with specials, good service and good food that is more for your money.

Excellent salads and appetizers. Nice pub adjacent to the restaurant, in newly renovated downtown. Located 1 mile from I-40

Used to book reservations here for the company I worked for when they wanted to do something 'special' for guests coming to town. My husband and I ate there on occasion but seemed the service wasn't as good as we had remembered and have had better food elsewhere and paid less.

Referred by my hotel. I have been traveling for 30 years on business and this was the one of best experiences and totally unexpected. Try it, you won't be disappointed. The Owner and her staff make you feel special and welcome. A great change from the typical chains we all are familiar with. Thanks for a great evening!

Food not consistent - veal piccata was not pounded, simply sauteed and served as tough beef. Other dishes were okay. When owner is present food is much better. High prices should always dictate high quality.

We go to Statesville monthly and my husband is originally from there. Since we are normally there in the afternoon, we had tried twice to eat at Ristro's Place but they are closed in the afternoon as are a lot of restaurants in other towns. On the way back from Charlotte a week ago Friday and frazzled by the traffic,... More
