I was very pleased with the great selection of wine, the location and the staff. They even gave me free chocolate ice cream! This bar is the best!

“Best wine bar in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I live in thessaloniki and the first thing i noticed when i entered the place was the classic decoration and the music. Both fabulously paired with each other. Later i found out that they have one of the biggest wine selection in town .The service is splendid.

“The only true wine bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

During my stay in Thessaloniki I visited a couple so called wine bars and then I went to Rialto! Enormous wine list, all the choices available by the glass (more than 70 etiquettes) and food and wine pairing offers all day. It is directly behind the church of Agia Sofia with a fantastic view of the church. The music was very good and all the plates prepared with care and crisis friendly prices!
They have salads in the menu, something we found very useful for keeping us for the rest of the day. An amazing place, would definitely recommend it.

“A true Class Act!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

i won't say much but every time i visit Thessaloniki, i stop by at The Rialto Cafe for a quick espresso, or a hot chocolate! The staff is always very helpful and efficient! It truly lives up to its description of a caffe- wine bar and not a single detail is overlooked! Great job:)

“Cozy atmosphere, excellent service, good quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

I am from Thessaloniki but live in the UK for the past 5 years. Therefore when I return back for a few days on holidays I always aim to catch up with people as much as I can. Rialto provides me with the perfect environment for that. Despite the fact Thessaloniki is indeed the "capital of cafes bars" in Greece, I find Rialto to have a competitive advantage vs the rest. The way it differentiates itself is the excellent service at a very high standard (not common in bars in Greece) and the cozy atmosphere with lounge/jazz music that is loud enough to be heard and create a friendly atmosphere but to a level that is not of disturbance to a chill out coffee or drink. In the same time the range of cocktails, spirits and others is just amazing (15 types of beers and 80 for wines) without that being against quality in any way. Lastly, every drink is accompanied with some sort of treat that has been sophistically combined with what the drink is (e.g. smoked salmon canapes for smokey whiskeys and dark chocolate for aged non smokey ones).
Rialto is simply an extra reason to want to travel back again.
