“good food in a small town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

This small restaurant in located in a converted old time movie theater on the main street.
The place is small and was full all during our visit -mostly with locals.
Our waitress was extremely friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu choices.
We chose an alfredo dish and a shrimp pasta dish and both were very good.
There are not that many places to eat on a Sunday nite here and you cannot go wrong by choosing the Rialto.

“A nice surprise in Alamosa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

On the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, I tried dining at the Bistro Rialto after a tiring drive from Cañon City. The hostess was charming, and I was seated immediately (in a booth, even though I was alone) I ordered the house salad, the house lasagna (half), and a glass of good Australian shiraz. All of the ingredients in the delicious house salad were fresh and tasty. The wine and lasagna were served promptly and the pairing was perfect. My server was prompt and attentive. Charming atmosphere. Recommended.

“Excellent Lasagne...Cool Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

I loved the "feel" of this restaurant! The staff was so entertaining and the food was sumptuous. I particularly enjoyed the half lasagne which was more than enough when accompanied by the salad. I highly recommend a visit to the Bistro.

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Eating at the Rialto Bistro was just an all around great experience. Went with the family and we all enjoyed the food (pizza and all you can eat noodles for the kids, lasagna and prime rib for the adults). Not only were the food and dessert great, but I thought the service and atmosphere were also superb. If this restaurant were closer to me, I'd be a regular.

“Okay food. Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

The pasta dishes were average. Pizza was better. The problem was the very poor service. The waiter started well, but quickly fell off. We waited 25 minutes for 2 glasses of wine. Our water and tea glasses went empty twice. Overall, an average meal marred by the poor service.
