    Everything about Rialto was amazing. Food was delicious with perfect portion size. Price was reasonable. Our server (Kristin) and the manager (Andrea) treated us like royalty.Definitely hope to return

    Jody Adams' Harvard Square flagship has been drawing crowds since opening nearly a decade ago, focusing on regional Italian cuisine and locally sourced ingredients. [Eater 38 Member]

    Head here for outstanding Italian-inflected New England-style fare like lobster bucatini and slow-roasted duck. Head to the bar for dollar oysters on Mondays and addictive fried stuffed olives. Read more

    Fantastic restaurant and their private dining room is amazing - lots of windows so you don't feel hidden from the world.

    Everything is amazing, but try the Artic Char! It is Icelandic and s an Icelander it was better than any char I have had in Iceland!

    I love it. TCM Chef Jody Adams combines great food with a beautiful atmosphere. The flavors are what they are supposed to be. -Carmen Gonzalez, Top Chef

    Had a unevenly cooked octopus followed by a chewy boar. The ubiquitous staff was surprisingly unhelpful. This was comically juxtaposed by an overly stuffy atmosphere.

    Incredibly elegant and comfortable. So pleasantly surprised to be offered a special menu catering to my food allergy. Buono mangiare.

    Go on Mondays at the bar. Not only are Island Creek oysters only $1 each, the creative accompaniment sauces (delivered in a trio of spoons) are only available during these nights.

    You simply cannot go wrong with cocktails at the bar. Try having the bartender concoct an "off menu" drink. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    My experience here is so so..Disappointed. Yes. Maybe I expected too much. Duck was tough, chicken taste like anybody else's chicken. Fish is Ok. Appetizers -ok but it leaves you hanging. Bad service

    Poor Charles Hotel. How many people pass through its lobby nightly, ignoring its staffers’ smiles and glazing over its décor? Blame Rialto: The second-floor restaurant has such pull. Read more
