    We had a great Father’s Day experience at Rio on Sunday night. Our waiter was wonderful! My husband and his son split the Sunday gravy and were swooning. I had the gnocchi and grilled chicken with pesto and the gnocchi were perfect little soft pillows that literally melted in my mouth. Thank you for making it the perfect Father’s Day.

    Our server was wonderful. Did an excellent job at answering our questions. Meatballs were so delicious. The portion size of the chicken milanese was quite large. It'll be dinner tonight. Sauce was very good, of course.

    The best Italian food in Los Angeles. Flavor, flavor, flavor. The meatballs are by far my family's favorite, they're perfect. We love the lemon chicken, the veal, and the shrimp scampi. The service is so professional and friendly. You can tell they train their staff well. We have been there many times and it's consistently good.

    Overpriced, over-sold, & mediocre at best. Dessert was the best part of the meal. Half-full restaurant but extremely slow service - not our server's vault, but the kitchen.

    Had a great time at Rao's! The scampi was delicious, and the special of the day was outstanding. Can’t wait to return for more exceptional dishes and fantastic atmosphere!
