The restaurant is fairly small, but there is a large deck for dining outside, it's all very cute and intimate. Our service was excellent, everyone was very friendly. The food was quite tasty. Definitely try the truffle fries with truffle dip and they don't skimp...More

We had lunch outside, as did most other lunchtime patrons. The ambiance is charming; the food is very good. I particularly liked the tomato soup. The service is friendly and competent, the wine and beer prices reasonable. Recommended.

So many people told us how good Riso Foods was, we found it ok but not as good as we thought it was going to be, were going to try them for evening meal see if that's any better.

This restaurant is a jewel. I shared a very good pizza with my wife. Our waitress was a delight. She took time to explain the menu to us. The decor was white providing a nice clean appearance. The beautiful coloured paintings complemented the white decor....More

We are from Colorado and all 6 of us agreed that this restaurant has an awesome atmosphere inside and out. Pizzas were great. We were still talking about how good the pizzas were days later. I would highly recommend visiting this place.
