Description: Excellent Italian and Italian kissed cooking culled from the owners' family archives and travel jaunts recreated as a well worn, well-loved and heavily textured vintage tavern/trattoria experience where heavy upcyling targets informed and shaped this one-of-a-kind design that's both ancient and modern, edgy and sexy all at once. Curated eclectic soundtrack to accompany an old school sworn menu replete with vintage Italian tavern and home cooked rustic flavours - fresh traditional pastas of Roman, Umbrian and Tuscan tradition, a quality grill offering of top notch beef, lamb, veal, quail, chicken, fish and pork. Part of the historic zone's Durham Social - a multi-chambered emporium housing several intimate and highly popular concepts, keeping company currently with Red Fang Tavern, Durham Hall and the Roma '71 Bar. An awesome and unique find in a Northern Ontario city's downtown!

If you are looking for amazing food, personable staff, reasonable prices, atmosphere, and a great night out be sure to try Respect is Burning. We have never had a meal we did not enjoy and keep going back for more. Don't be surprised if the owner Rob Gregorini stops by your table for a chat. His number one priority is that you have a wonderful dining experience. Enjoy!

“Absolutely delicious!”

Excellent service, excellent meal. Not very crowded so easy to converse. Waiter established an excellent rapport. Portions were quite big. Chocolate cheesecake was very yummy - and huge!

“Great food and vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

OMG the food is good! The menu features a number of wonderful Rustic Italian dishes and the presentation is top notch. If you've got family and friends coming to town and you're looking to show off something cool about Sudbury that they will remember for a long time, a dinner at RiB is a must.

“Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Who would have thought! There was 9 Tour and Travel Board members from various regions accross Ontario in Sudbury for a board meeting at Science North (also a great place) on July 10-11 and we had dinner at Respect is Burning...... Oh my goodness everything was amazing! The menu was so veluptipus we ordered several "mains" as appetizers to share just to be able to taste everything (plus our own delicious mains) the butter sage ravioli and ribs were to die for. Personally my favorite was the Mushroom soup.. People were raving over there individual meals including the quale. Colleges were talking about their meal even as we were making our way back to the airport the following day. A MUST visit if your ever in Sudbury.
