    The food, ambiance, and service were quite extraordinary. Our server, Victoria, was attentive, thorough, and a delight to speak with. She explained the menu and specials in detail and ensured our birthday celebration was special. Great ambience with Motown music all night, and a wonderful large table off to the side for our party to engage in conversation privately. The food was amazing. I’d suggest splitting multiple appetizers, pasta portions are great for a single serving, and main courses can be split throughout. The hazelnut torte and pistachio ice cream are a great way to complete the meal. Will be visiting again!

    Our server Daniel was phenomenal. This is the second time we have been served by him and he is really personable, accommodating, knowledgeable, and overall super sweet! The food at Rialto is also great - inventive yet unpretentious classic Italian fare. We love the ambience, food and service here!

    The patio is a wonderful place to enjoy cocktails and delicious food. The vibe is super friendly and a bit upscale, which we loved. It felt a little more special than a regular patio, which fits with the menu being a little more unique and imaginative. Our server, Isaiah, was there exactly when we needed him. He certainly added to our overall enjoyable experience. We will return!

    Asked to sit on the patio…was told no…two tables sit empty all night out there. Food was good, but simple, yet expensive. Good meal, but much better choices for $100-$140 pp.

    The food was good but a bit pricey for the vibe of the place. It was a very casual place with prices of fine dining. Food was great, service was amazing and beyond. Was good enough for one time but I cant say I would go back esp. because it was quite far from our home.

    The waitress was not able to clearly answer my questions re:dish ingredients such as cicoria and I feel like she made things up. If you are unsure then just say that. Fennel and cicoria are not the same things !!The portions were very small for the price. Wine was lovely Glad we tried it but would only return if there was another venue. Super convenient.

    Absolutely terrible. Will never go back. Waste of money and a huge embarrassment in front of my date. Food came out cold as if it was sitting out for a while. Steak was tasteless. When notified the waiter, he took the steak back to the kitchen seemed like he warmed it up in a microwave cause it became extremely chewy. When asked for wine, they brought out a wine expert. The recommended wine was complete opposite to what we had asked. We paid for the wasted bottle and ordered a new one. They took the steak off the bill. But you expect a manager or an owner to come out and apologize for such a shameful dish at the very minimum. We needed grabbing a sandwich at a local bar for dinner.

    We had booked the private room at osteria rialto for a birthday event as we had a group of 14 and heard that they had a good family style menu. We made the reservation and had contacted their event coordinator. There were two different sample menus $75/$100. Our group chose the $100/person menu. We were told that the only change on the menu would be the steak course. When we get there, no mention of any changes to our menu we're communicated to us. We noticed that the calamari, octopus and triangoli options were not served and brought that to the server's attention. He went and spoke to the manager and came back with a 5% discount and a said he would take care of one of the full. Sample menus since we had brought an extra guest. I told him our reservation was for 14 and not 13 like he suggested. We weren't happy with the fact that the manager didn't even come to our table and also didn't even know what our reservation size was supposed to be. We were told not to worry and they would reach out to me the next day to come to a resolution before charging my card. Nobody reached out and then they charged my card. Disappointing dinner, the food was mediocre and the service ended up being pretty bad. Would not recommend for a large group.

    The food was very good! Excellent dishes, but the service was not good at all. The waiter made mistakes, forgot plates and drinks, was not around the table frequently, we had to wait 20min between dishes because she did a take out order on time. But as I mentioned before, the food was very good, I would come back, I am sure it was only a atypical issue.

    We usually tend to go to big chain restaurants, but this time we wanted to try something new! It was really nice getting to eat authentic Italian food and try some incredible wine! The family-style sharing courses were really fun and the staff was incredibly helpful when it came to assisting us with selecting dishes and drinks. It was honestly a really great experience and one I wouldn't hesitate to try again. Definitely pricey, but for something this special, it's incredibly worth it!

    When I had trouble on the app trying to book a reservation by use the email address provided on their voicemail and got a response promptly and no problem booking with them directly. Upon arriving we were seated almost immediately and the food was way beyond our expectations but appropriate for the price point. Waitress was helpful with selecting portions and was even able to create a custom non alcoholic beverage for me.

    Great addition to the neighbourhood, so glad they have been able to re-open. If you dine in the patio area (closed in during winter) it can be chilly - so bring a sweater. Very helpful servers - and as a bonus, buy something at the bottle shop (which also sells food products)!

    We loved Rialto for its location and charm. The food was absolutely excellent, and the service by Victoria very attentive to details. We didn’t love the check-in process and the gentleman who checks you in as he lacks business mindset and warmth (we ask to tour the shop prior to going to our table and he said no, I am taking you now. Wow). As we toured the shop after our diner (we knew it was closed), he came to tell us we would not be able to purchase. Very automatic and careless. Otherwise there are 2 ambiances on the main floor. The patio is much warmer, but much cooler too.

    Long waits and poor service at different stages of the night and underwhelming sides and dessert selection are the reason for the 3 stars; however the apps, pasta and mains were first class, especially the raw spotted prawns and steak which were perfectly prepared and the homemade pasta was sublime. I will still go back, the food is that good and the sommelier also recommended a great bottle of wine. One last thing, you must get the focaccia, it's so light and crispy and along with their olive oil is a perfect start to the meal.

    Beautiful restaurant although very drafty, we assumed this was because the space is mostly windows but bring a sweater if dining in the winter. Service could have been better, as someone who appreciates good food/drink and never minds paying for quality, I felt that some things were priced highly just for the sake of it and the quality did not reflect the cost. This space is attractive and has lots of potential but in my opinion, need to work out some kinks in their service and in their menu before I'd return.
