“No Good”
Reviewed August 23, 2009

Very bland... Very Expensive. Very old decor. Terrible salad dressing. Sorry, I wanted to like this place but its just not up to par.

“An amazing culinary treat, fine dining in casual environment”
Reviewed August 9, 2009

Risotto's is the proverbial oasis in the desert of chain restaurants and the culinary wasteland of Lake County. Everything on the menu is made fresh on-site. The staff is warm, yet professional, very welcoming. The food is...Oh My God. The food is fantastic. If you have an important dinner meeting, a first date you want to impress, or just enjoy fine dining without the attitude, Risotto's is the place. Nothing else in the area even comes close...Risotto's stands alone.

“Best Italian Food in the North Suburbs”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

We've been going to Risotto's since it opened. Everything on the menu we've had, and we've had most of the items, has been delicious. Raffi takes great care in presenting high quality food. It's often hard to choose what to have because it's all so good. It's nice to spend time at the bar with Anna too, but go for the food. You won't be disappointed.
