Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have visited the Rialto several times in recent years and I never cease to be pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food cooked, the portion size, pricing and overall experience. Whilst it was busy this past Saturday evening, it deserves to be packed....These local independent restaurants need all the support they can get and when they are this good you have to book a meal with them.More

Been a while since I last ate here. Friendly welcome and good service. I had the Palma ham and melon starter, a very generous portion. Main was duck with mash and brocoli. Again a very good sized meal, broccoli a vibrant colour and nicely cooked.

As we approached the restaurant I wasn’t expecting such a rich interior, filled with Italian elements, this elevated our experience dining here.The menu was vast and filled with a variety of dishes to cater for all pallets.The service was prompt and fantastic, more so towards...the beginning of our meal as it wasn’t as busy,nonetheless we were well cared for. Our meals were cooked well and could taste the quality of the ingredients. What really impressed me was the quality and taste of the sorbet and gelato, the best I’ve ever had! Would highly recommend and will be dining here again.More

Really average takeaway pizza. Ordered a couple with rocket and it was soggy old leaves. Had chicken wings to start and they were tasteless. Wouldn’t recommend to be honest.

We were a family of four, with very different needs. Nonna, 13 year old birthday boy and two adults, We were greeted by a warm, kind intellegent waitress who was Ukranian - who spent time with us ordering and chatting through all the menu. `an...amazing mother and generous lady. We had the seafood starter to share, King Prawns with garlic prawns, squid rings. Mains were Pepperoni pizza, meaty pizza, mushroom risotto with chicken, seafood risotto and 10/10 for a;ll. Thanked the Chefs for the amazing food and also the owner. Well the ice-cream sundaes also blew our minds - the warm friendly. kind family atmosphere and seriously amazed we have such an amazing restaurant in Dorking. Please go if you want wonderful food, family friendly and excellent food. Anyone who gives negative feedback, really does not understand the wonderfulness of this gem.More

We had a wonderful evening at Rialto. We had a marvellous seafood risotto followed by wonderful homemade ice cream and excellent wine. The service - as always was excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable evening as usual. Finally very good value for money

Best Italian restaurant in a ten mile radius? On that basis Dorking must be the Italian food blackspot of Europe. Travel ten miles, twenty even but don't eat here. This food completely lacked the instinctive flair, delicacy and great ingredients that I associate with good...Italian food. I have Italian friends who can rustle up better food in twenty minutes with a couple of tins from the supermarket and basic cooks' ingredients. As for atmosphere, the little there was of it was soured by some very uncalled for rudeness from a waitress in response to a perfectly polite enquiry about dessert. Bear in mind that including the service charge in the bill should mean the management have taken steps to ensure the staff actually deserve it. If you find yourself desperate for Italian food in Dorking, with no means of transport, postpone your visit to the Rialto until you've seen it featured on a Gordon Ramsay show.More

As a family of 5 we went and really enjoyed the food and the service here is good. This is the second time we have been. The children's make your own pizza is good. The quality of the pizza is above average and easily beats...a poor mass market chain like Pizza express. A place that charges a ridiculous amount and who has some of the rudest worst waitresses I have ever come across in a restaurant. But that is the power of marketing. I would give Rialto's a try as an independent pizza place which actually offers good value for money and whose staff are polite, it deserves your custom far more than a rip off chain restaurant run by a Chinese hedge fund. The Ice creams here are also fantastic.More

Booked for a team meal, mid week, late afternoon. 22 people. We were given a pre order scaled down menu which was fine. However, on arriving at the venue, it was apparent that we were expected to squeeze in around the tables so we were...literally shoulder to shoulder (and I mean touching). A couple of colleagues arrived after us and it was a physical impossibility to get the chairs at the table. They knew how many were coming but didn't provide a relaxed seating arrangement. Food was OK, it's subjective so won't comment apart from the gelato puddings went down a storm, fabulous flavours on offer and very good value for money. Unfortunately, whilst the two waitresses were efficient in bringing the food out, they seemed to be lacking in enthusiasm and smiles, almost like we were an inconvenience. As we were so crammed in against the back wall, they were handing over boiling bowls of soup over the heads of colleagues opposite me. A local corporate booking worth hundreds of pounds, think we deserved betterMore

We visited this restaurant in December around a theatre panto trip, unfortunately we couldn’t get into pizza express so tried here. It’s definitely not the locality for why it was empty. The pizza was wet and soggy, the waitresses poor and went to take out...bread we paid for away as our meal arrived, and it was generally not great. The toilets are dated and that’s fine for some restaurants but this not great. We didn’t feel we could complain as Christmas spirit dictated not too and we aren’t complaining type but unfortunately not a great experience. Then just to top it off a 10% service charge included (albeit that you can decline it but let’s be honest you don’t feel you can especially at Christmas). Definitely wouldn’t re visit and advise a swerve on this one.More

This is one of our go tos in Dorking for a work team lunch. I had the fantasia salad again which was so good as usual. The tiramisu was homemade and apparently extra special.

I don't see why not. Dorking offers many more places where you could do that - if you are using papers I wouldn't recommend it. There is a soft play so you may have children there running around. You might be better... More
