We have always enjoyed the Risotto House for its savory risotto dishes, but it had been awhile since we had visited. We were happy that the quality remained outstanding. We kept the appetizers on the light side, knowing that the rich risotto entrees would be quite fulling. The special was figs wrapped in prosciutto. The sweet fruit with the savory... More

This is a small restaurant, but nicely appointed with linen tablecloths and napkins. Be aware that it is a BYOB. But, it's the food that matters most and Risotto House delivers. We started with the fried calamari, which was lightly golden in color, not greasy and sooo tender! It was outstanding, particularly in comparison to the vast majority of restaurants... More

I had my sons communion party here. As always the food was very good and plentiful. The service was decent, despite the fact that Pat/Carlos was incredibly rude to me from day one. I say Pat/Carlos because he told me his name was Pat, but when you look on line it says Carlos. So I have no idea what his... More

Came here on a Thursday night 6:15pm and the restaurant was half full. Most diners seem to be local seniors. After reading through the menu, I realized the reason why. This restaurant serves traditional / simple risotto specialty. It was not fancy enough to attract cutting edge crowd, but the solid cooking keep the regulars happy. We ordered a mixed... More
