“Best lasagna ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2007

A client recommended I try Rillo's when I was in Carlisle in July, 2007. Oh my gosh, it was wonderful!

I ordered the lasagna with a glass of pinot noir and the house salad.

The house salad was okay. Nothing too special. They also brought some good thing slices of garlic bread.

Then the lasagna arrived and my life changed forever! Okay, that is an exaggeration, but it was the best I've ever had. I understand that they make their pasta fresh and it sure made a difference. As I was on my company's expense, I had planned to save room for dessert, but then didn't want to stop eating my lasagna. Oh well. I am sure the desserts would have been great.

It is a nice restaurant with good service. My lasagna was $16.50 but well worth it. Other entrees ran up to $25 or so.

“Straight from the Sixties”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2007

This place is straight from the sixties. You expect to see Frank and the Rat Pack come through the front door. The food also dates from that era. It is heavy on the sauces without any updated, healthy choices. This is a Carlilse landmark, but it badly needs updating.

“a true gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2004

A gem of a restaurant,tucked at the end of a residential street.
The quality and quantity of food is unbelieveable.
Service and waitstaff are "right on the money".
Has a nice bar area where you can have a before dinner drink.
The food has never disappointed us. Top quality ingredients.
A must,if you are in the Carlisle area !!!
