Amazing food and service! Loved starting with drinks and bruschetta-both were delicious. Would definitely return!

We were starving and didn’t want to wait for our dinner reservations two hours later and decided to walk in to Riondo’s. So glad we did! Great food and service...the gnocchi and lobster ravioli was excellent. Highly recommend.

Went on a Saturday night over one of the Mardi Gras weekends. Had made a reservation for 6:30, but stopped in at 6 pm and was seated. We had purchased an online special for the Mardi Gras so we did not see the full menu. The wait staff was excellent, was seated in a very nice quite alcove area of restaurant. I go the house salad which was very good and their house dressing was good, it reminded me of a thousand Island dressing. My husband got the soup, which was also very good. they brought out bread with an olive oil dipping sauce, which had a little to much vinegar in it for, me. I have had better dipping oils. The main course was excellent. I order the fresh catch which was swordfish served in a red pepper sauce, with a side of linguine. My husband got the duck, which was very good. For dessert they served the tiramisu , which was very tasty and nice and light texture. Their coffee was also very good. Nice location and good food. Would go back.

Located in a historic building on the Strand, Riondo's fresh and fairly-priced food, robust cocktails, soft lighting, cosy Mediterranean decor, well-placed tables and excellent sound system make this one of the most enjoyable restaurants in greater Houston. Ideal for couples, the friendly staff also makes children welcome. As appetizers, the tender grilled octopus complemented the antipasto plate, on which were arranged best-quality prosciutto and marinated vegetables. My husband enjoyed an enormous, flavorful osso buco, which we could easily have shared. The same saffron risotto accompanied the octopus, the osso buco, and the duck breast. It was tasty, but winter greens or another veggie side would have lent variety. No parking, but in easy walking distance of many lots.

On our last visit we did not have reservations but space was made for the two of us at the bar. As always quality awaited us and as always the staff was attentive and friendly. Food is excellent.
