“Try the pillows of heaven - you won't regret it!”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

High quality ingredients, good food, and nice atmosphere. My favorite is the homemade stuffed gnochi - aka pillows of heaven. Semi casual atmosphere.

“Risotto's is a regular stop for us”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Risotto's is the best Italian offering in Gurnee. The food is great as is the service. This is a favorite for most locals.

“New Year Eve's fare was disgusting - $50.00 for a horrible lobster meal so I feel obligated to warn future clients.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

This restaurant had a special menu for this holiday so you were very limited in choices. There were no meals inder $29.95 and very few selections. Four of our party chose the 8 oz lobster meal along with soup. The lobster and crab bisque soup had no lobster or crab pieces - just the bisque. And it was basically tasteless. The minestrone soup had a very odd, strong flavor that was bad - could not eat it. When the lobsters came and we picked them up off if the shells, the shells were still green which generally indicates they were not broiled or boiled. Since they were tasteless and tough we are guessing they may have been microwaved and then set on the shell. One was still raw and had to be sent back to be further cooked. Along with this dinner came an ice cream scoop size of mashed potatoes and there was no offering of baked or otherwise (rice). For the vegetable - a mess of steamed vegetables that were mostly carrots that were mushy. Since this meal was so horrible there will be no second chances for this restaurant. Maybe there normal Italian fare is better, but I won't waste my time or money to find out.

Reviewed November 11, 2011

Over priced for the quality of food and service. Food was ok but expected. Service was very slow and not her friendly. Would not go back again.
