Beautiful, bright and cheerful restaurant. Very informative staff that cater to the needs and wants of the diner. My wife has many food allergies so she had questions, all were answered. They even have a separate gluten free menu, ask for it. We settled on a tomato salad topped with Buffalo mozzarella cheese. It was the little things like the... More

We are regulars at Ritorno. The quality never disappoints, the staff are always friendly and professional. Make a reservation on the weekends, because it's packed.

The other dish ordered was Veal Parm and... More

So I went to this Italian restaurant and the decor is just ok. Nothing special and seating a little uncomfortable. The wine list is very limited. However I did have a delicious chicken marsala that had lots of flavor and a very good portion. I'd go back but I wish the seating would improve and the wine list could definitely... More

My wife and I come here all the time. As much as we possibly can. Food is always excellent. To be honest I haven't ordered off the menu in probably a year. I always get the special and have never been disappointed. Our favourite server is Morgan, she is absolutely lovely, remembers us when we come and is always fun... More

My family and I have recently discovered this little gem in Oakville. The Linguine Pescatore is my son's favourite. The gnocchi is sublime. The Osso Bucco is fall off the bone tender. I like the cozy ambiance and the wait staff is very attentive. Recently went there to celebrate my son's 13th birthday, and Ritorno was his choice. Morgan our... More

Second visit to Ritorno in the past year and once again it was once again a very busy place so making a reservation was definitely the right thing to do. All appetizers were excellent - the Antipasto plate in particular was great value and the mussels were great in the sambuca cream sauce. For the main dishes, everything was well... More

The best gnocchi, ravioli and calamari since I have moved to Canada from Italy 2 years ago. Everything was fresh and super tasty. The staff is very efficient and friendly. Right now my first Italian restaurant choice
