  • 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.
  • Rialto has $1 oysters at the bar on Monday nights.
  • Every Monday night Rialto has $1 oysters at the bar and Wednesdays are Wine Wednesdays - a free tasting of a bottle of red and a bottle of white at the bar starting at 5:30pm.
  • Have had better duck-good taste, but too tough and rubberlike.
  • #6 - IWalked Boston's Top 10 Italian Restaurants. Located in Charles Hotel. Boston Magazine's recent top pick. Enjoy the rotating 4-course regional menu. Dinners may be fixed price or ala carte.<LINK>
  • 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
  • Rialto continues to maintain its sparkling reputation as one of the city's best. [Eater 38 Member]
  • 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.
  • Average italian
  • Classy and delicious.
  • The "senza spirito" mocktail called Ivrea was unique and delicious!
  • Bucatini with lobster, tomatoes, saffron, and chilies.
