Positives: service, ambiance/atmosphere, Salad, drink menu Disappointment: gnocchi was very soft/mushy, bolognese was more like a tomato sauce, meatballs were dry I understand known for gnocchi but I would order something else if I ever went back.

We went on Friday night, around 8 pm, we had to wait, and let staff know that a table was available in order to seat there, while our waitress was very nice, and friendly, (her service was excellent), unfortunately I can not said the same for the food, while the soup of the day was great, same as the calamari...

This was our first time at Ritorno, we wanted a place that was close enough for all of us to get to easily. The atmosphere is noisy and energetic, it has an old world charm, the wait staff are all in black. The menu has a great variety of appetizers, pizzas, pastas and mains, but it's not overwhelming. The wine... More

The food here is amazing. Always fresh. I have tried fish specials but my usual go to dish is the restaurants gnocchi. I go back for the gnocchi often.

Not only is the service at Ritorno excellent, the food is superb. I have never eaten better gnocchi in my life - the vodka sauce is an excellent pair with it. My family and I have been twice in the past 2 months and we are planning a family party there in December. Highly recommended.

Food was ok. I found the menu somewhat limited as I do not eat carbs. They need more chicken, meat and fish entrées as a veal parmigiano and picatta are not enough. No fish other than one salmon dish. Not running back.

It consists of a variety of entree options, which I'm afraid you might not have had the chance to review the night you were here. Veal Picatta, Chicken Marsala, Pan Roasted Salmon, and the Lamb...

Tried this little spot for dinner with my girlfriends. We picked it for the location - it was convenient for all of us - and it ended up being a fantastic surprise. We walked into the restaurant out of the rain to a well lit, up beat vibe with Frank Sinatra blaring. The server was super friendly and suggested some... More
