I love it. TCM Chef Jody Adams combines great food with a beautiful atmosphere. The flavors are what they are supposed to be. -Carmen Gonzalez, Top Chef
Poor Charles Hotel. How many people pass through its lobby nightly, ignoring its staffers smiles and glazing over its dcor? Blame Rialto: The second-floor restaurant has such pull.

Have had better duck-good taste, but too tough and rubberlike.

Jody Adams' Harvard Square flagship has been drawing crowds since opening nearly a decade ago, focusing on regional Italian cuisine and locally sourced ingredients. [Eater 38 Member]
$1 oysters on Mondays in the bar & lounge from 5:30-7:00pm and $10 burgers all night in the bar & lounge on Sundays.
Everything about Rialto was amazing. Food was delicious with perfect portion size. Price was reasonable. Our server (Kristin) and the manager (Andrea) treated us like royalty.Definitely hope to return
Solid, always solid.
Not sure I will ever return. Good food but horribly bad service.
Head here for outstanding Italian-inflected New England-style fare like lobster bucatini and slow-roasted duck. Head to the bar for dollar oysters on Mondays and addictive fried stuffed olives.
You simply cannot go wrong with cocktails at the bar. Try having the bartender concoct an "off menu" drink. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
$1 oysters on Monday nights!
Had a unevenly cooked octopus followed by a chewy boar. The ubiquitous staff was surprisingly unhelpful. This was comically juxtaposed by an overly stuffy atmosphere.
Classy and delicious.
The "senza spirito" mocktail called Ivrea was unique and delicious!
Bucatini with lobster, tomatoes, saffron, and chilies.
