The food here is amazing. Always fresh. I have tried fish specials but my usual go to dish is the restaurants gnocchi. I go back for the gnocchi often.

Not only is the service at Ritorno excellent, the food is superb. I have never eaten better gnocchi in my life - the vodka sauce is an excellent pair with it. My family and I have been twice in the past 2 months and we are planning a family party there in December. Highly recommended.

Food was ok. I found the menu somewhat limited as I do not eat carbs. They need more chicken, meat and fish entrées as a veal parmigiano and picatta are not enough. No fish other than one salmon dish. Not running back.

Hi Terry, thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I'm pleased to announce we've released our new fall/winter menu Monday, October 3rd 2016. It consists of a variety of entree options, which I'm afraid you might not have had the chance to review the night you were here. Veal Picatta, Chicken Marsala, Pan Roasted Salmon, and the Lamb...

Tried this little spot for dinner with my girlfriends. We picked it for the location - it was convenient for all of us - and it ended up being a fantastic surprise. We walked into the restaurant out of the rain to a well lit, up beat vibe with Frank Sinatra blaring. The server was super friendly and suggested some... More

This somewhat hidden restaurant was an extremely pleasant surprise. In fact it is so hard to understand some of these negative reviews - must have been a bad spell that's all. Service was prompt and friendly. Drinks came quickly. The bruschetta appetizer was self serve on to the bread with a rich garlic taste and lots of Parmesan cheese. Their... More

Stopped by at lunch. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Ordered the Prosciutto pizza with sweet fig jam, proscuitto, oven roasted tomato, asiago and olive oil and was really disappointed.The crust was like eating cardboard and the 10" pizza only had toppings in the middle 6". This made the underwhelming crust even more difficult to eat. I left half... More

The food is always splendid....lasagne, gnocchi and gluten free pasta are top shelf. I also really appreciate the flexibility in changing pasta types, adding some shrimp or scallops there.... This all only outdone by the service. Professional, attention to detail, a smile....they listen!! I mentioned to Matt that I really enjoyed the La Florencia Malbec. The next thing I know... More

Although my wife and I have been here several times in the past few years, we are always impressed with the food preparations, the congenial staff and the atmosphere at Ritorno. Yesterday was my birthday and, since our daughter had given us a gift certificate for what she knows is one of our favorite dining spots, we applied it against... More

This restaurant tries hard and it does have some redeeming qualities but the Italian fare comes up short. They use fresh pasta in their spaghetti/linguini and meat balls....but the pasta was way over cooked. They likely use it to speed up the service but at the expense of the al dente sensation of a great spaghetti. The sauce was ok... More
