We returned to Risotto for lunch after a previous good evening experience. It was a disaster. We arrived at the indicated opening time. The staff were having their lunch and suggested we wait outside until they were ready. In the time we waited another 8...More

Simply excellent. A little more expensive but everything is right. Food, variety, service, view (also in the evening and "despite" east direction), not drafty, restrooms.

Went for evening meal. Slow service. No apparent electric lighting so had to use mobile phones/torches to see both menu and food. Did not consider value for money. Might be better for lunch when one can appreciate surroundings.More

We've passed this place numerous times, without realising that they do lunchtime snacks as well as risottos. And the view from the terrace is truly spectacular. It was a sunny day when we finally made it here, so we chose a table out of full...More
