We walked to this restaurant for an early dinner after seeing the reviews. The service was outstanding and very professional. The decor is beautiful, the food was very good and Riondo's would be wonderful for a special occasion.

We were starving and didn’t want to wait for our dinner reservations two hours later and decided to walk in to Riondo’s. So glad we did! Great food and service...the gnocchi and lobster ravioli was excellent. Highly recommend.
