The chicken parmegian is delicious! They have excellent wines to select with your meals. The staff is friendly and courteous.

We had dinner here and the food was simply delicious. The fried calamari for appetizer was the best. I had the shrimp scampi and my fiancé had the mussels marinara and we enjoyed every bit of it. They also know how to make a mean drink. It stingy on the drinks at all. In fact I would say they made... More

Stayed in Lake George the last weekend in January, lots of places closed for the season, but we found Mama Riso's very close to our hotel. Cute, welcoming place and hostess was very pleasant . Garden salad (with house made Italian dressing) and bread were nice and fresh. Unfortunately I was not impressed with my entree- chicken francaise. Two small... More

The bread, which we had to ask for while waiting, was warm and tasty. The food, however, was only so-and-so, and the leftover lipstick on the glasses gross beyond words! Won't be coming back.

Mama Riso's is an Italian restaurant open year round in Lake George. I recently ate there on a cold Sunday night and it was so delicious that I went back on Monday for take out. On Sunday, our party of three started out with roasted peppers, Italian Cheese and hot crusty Italian bread while looking over the menu. Entrees come... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant for the prices they charge. This restaurant is inside of a big house. Decor is bit dated. For appetizers we had eggplant rollatini, calamari and garlic bread. The garlic bread was very basic and plain. The calamari was a disappointment. Do not order the calamari here. No salt just battered and not enough... More

My son and I went to Mama Riso's when we were on vacation in George. After waiting an excessive amount of time for a server to show up he went over the specials. On of the specials was described as a Seafood dish with Lobster, shrimp and scallops. After waiting an excessive time to receive the meal. The pasta was... More

Cozy restaurant with good Italian food that comes with a nice size salad or soup and fresh bread. Reasonable prices and friendly staff! I would come back again.

That's their logo and they do their best to help you do just that: eat great. We went there on the recommendation of the Front Desk Hampton Inn where we were staying (separate review). It's five minutes pleasant walk to the restaurant. The leaves are just beginning to turn and the views from the windows are gorgeous. Even the road... More
