It has been years since I have eaten at Riazzi's and we went for a birthday party. I will say that we had Risotto and fried zucchini for our appetizers along with the bread that was brought out and that was very good. Each of us got a different plate and all the food was excellent except for the Anitpasta... More

I used to go here a lot and really like it. I'm trying to stay away from carbs, so I don't go very often now.

We celebrated our 30th anniversary last night, so of course we went to our favorite restaurant, Riazzi's. Just walking into this ultra-relaxing place is a pleasure. We settled into our usual padded booth in the bar, and the sounds of a new Italian music tape wafted around the room, added a nice touch. Our usual waiter and server brought us... More

We stopped in on a whim as we were just....hangry. I was so happy to see spinach lasagna as it's my absolute favorite and very hard to come by. I was so not disappointed and so VERY happy they had my favorite! I cannot wait to go back as a great meal was had by all!

Stopped in for a business lunch and had the lasagna. It was absolutely scrumptious, and a perfect portion size for lunch. Cute restaurant with an older style Decour. Will return.

. . and it shows. I was concerned as we walked through the courtyard that the fountain wasn't on and filled with dirt. Broken tables and plastic chairs in a corner. Arrived at our reservation time and were told it would be a 20 minute wait. I see lots of tables empty but in need of bussing. Carpets are stained... More

This beautiful little restaurant on the corner of Mill Ave and Alameda, a location where you would not expect a restaurant to be, has been providing excellent Italian Food for many, many years now. Enter through a lovely little courtyard, shaded by a massive tree that is a treasure unto itself, and enter into this lovely little building. You will... More

I like Riazzis. It is an old time classic restaurant and for that I give it a high rating. The food is competently prepared but not outstanding. It IS a cool restaurant nonetheless.
