The location is great, the ambiance is quite nice and the service was very good, no doubt, but I thought the restaurant was overpriced in comparison with other Italian restaurants we tried in Pafos. The pasta dishes we ordered were only very average. However, I did have one of the best white wines I have tasted in ages here (a... More

I have just signed up to this to try and stop people making the same mistake. The food is honestly foul, three of us ate and not one of us had an edible meal. I decided on a mushroom bruschetta to start and pizza for main. The bruschetta was a dry bit of bread with a brown bogey on it... More

Firstly the ugly. The waiter looked a lot like a ex which instantly put a bad taste in my mouth. I didn't think that taste could get any worse, it did! I struggled for a long time to even chose something to eat, then adopted a Bear Grylls outlook and felt like I was eating for survival rather then enjoyment.... More

We spent over 45 minutes walking around this evening trying to find somewhere where all of our group would like. We looked at several different restaurants and cuisines and settled on this one on the harbour front as it was a good location and had a reasonable selection for two vegetarians in our group. We ordered a mushroom bruschetta, a... More

great food,great service, overall great value for money when taking everything into account. Recommend the penne arabiatta, go for the spicier option and a great tiramisu to finish.. The manager, Mr Happy ( not ) is a perfectionist so dont be put off by him , he always remembers us and is really very nice and welcoming.

We decided to try this restaurant on the harbour as it looked really good. It was lovely, but so expensive. Roughly our evening meals have been between €25-50 for the two of us. This bill came to over €100 for two main meals, two v&t's and a bottle of wine! Bit steep and have to say no better than the... More

The choice of food is vast but have never been disapointed with what comes out of the kitchen. Even the pizza was given the seal of approval by my daughter! What makes this a special visit are the wines, they have a vast cellar . Worth asking the knowledgeable manager for his recomendation , you wont be disapointed . Priced... More

This is the second or third time we have been here on various trips to Paphos. The food is fine in my opinion, staff are polite and friendly, I have noticed a few reviews here that say that the staff are not so friendly, I find you always get what you give ! We both had simple pasta dishes and... More

Busy along the harbour front tonight and had problems finding a nice table outside. Managed to get a reasonable table here at Risto but as soon as we were seated we noticed the manager having a go at the staff. I wish I could speak Italian because he was talking down some of the customers buy the look on his... More
