The food is so good and so fresh. But if it's busy they will allow the guests who are waiting stand at the bar which means they stood over our table for more than an hour. It was completely unacceptable.

The restaurant prides itself on being part of a family operation and this leads to an informal approach. Not that this is a bad thing but could catch you off guard if you are not ready for it. Food was great and we went with the desserts which sealed the deal. The only down side was when a fly landed... More

We have dined at Ritorno half a dozen times. Sadly we felt after our last visit that the quality of the food had gone down, and that the house wine was way over priced. We did not feel that the wait staff were adequately trained compared to a number of comparable class restaurants we frequent. The veal picatta way paper... More

We have eaten here many times with Friends, family and as a couple. We have never had a bad meal, never been rush, and always received above average to excellent service from their friendly staff. The pasta dishes are fairly priced and I would rank these dishes as slightly above average. The daily specials are your safest bet for an... More

Ordered two spaghetti dinners and two orders of meatballs for take out. When we went to pick up this was 66.02. It was too busy to ask about the cost and quite frankly the food was very good, but no bread, cheese or anything else. I just looked at the menu, apparently 6 meatballs was $18.00' as were the two...

We have dined here only once. I found the portion rather small, I ordered Veal Limone. I had 3 tiny pieces of Veal. I was sadly disappointed. It was overpriced for the portion size. I found the restaurant to bit small and tables cramped together. Not planning on returning.

Ritorno has been a fixture in the Oak Park area providing a comfortable neighbourhood atmosphere. The restaurant can boast a very loyal clientele which fill up the restaurant on weekly basis which can make reservations challenging. The dinner on tonight's occasion, however, was a little below standards. The beef brisket on a bed of mashed potatoes was disappointing dry. The... More

Five of us went for a birthday dinner at Ritorno's and I was really disappointed. We were told this place was one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. That was not our experience.
