Second visit to Ritorno in the past year and once again it was once again a very busy place so making a reservation was definitely the right thing to do. All appetizers were excellent - the Antipasto plate in particular was great value and the mussels were great in the sambuca cream sauce. For the main dishes, everything was well... More

The best gnocchi, ravioli and calamari since I have moved to Canada from Italy 2 years ago. Everything was fresh and super tasty. The staff is very efficient and friendly. Right now my first Italian restaurant choice

I had visited this restaurant a few years ago, and remember their mussels being delicious with a very generous portion. This time, the mussels probably amounted to 24 very tiny mussels (either overcooked or just a poor batch). The sauce was good, but there was also a note in the menu that additional bread baskets would be "extra". So we... More

The seafood pescatore was beautifully presented and was very bountiful and delicious. My wife's spaghetti and meatballs was very tasty and a large portion for her. I has the pumpkin bread... More

Overall great dining experience, from fantastic service to stunning dishes. I have visited Ritorno multiple times and have never been disappointed. I have always been greeted with a smile and left with a genuine farewell. The restaurant has a charming and intimate atmosphere, perfect for date night and family get togethers. I enjoy all of the options on their menu... More

When I had lunch there I thought it was just all right. But dinner was great and all six of us enjoyed ourselves. Good wines too.

Service was very good. We decided that it was going to be an appetizer lunch. We both ordered the Caprese Salad which was very good. My colleague had the mussels and I had the Calamari. Both were enjoyable. They do have a fairly nice wine menu for a small restaurant.

Positives: service, ambiance/atmosphere, Salad, drink menu Disappointment: gnocchi was very soft/mushy, bolognese was more like a tomato sauce, meatballs were dry I understand known for gnocchi but I would order something else if I ever went back.

We went on Friday night, around 8 pm, we had to wait, and let staff know that a table was available in order to seat there, while our waitress was very nice, and friendly, (her service was excellent), unfortunately I can not said the same for the food, while the soup of the day was great, same as the calamari...
