It was a warm night and we sat outside. We had the Brussels sprouts to start. They were nice and spiced. My wife raved about her chicken pot pie being flavorful and tasty. I enjoyed the bison meatloaf. It was a pleasant experience.

Judging by most of customers there, the Rialto Cafe serves tourists. Which is just as well for them, because if other diners' experience was like ours, they're never coming back. It started when my daughter, my son-in-law and I walked in and asked for a...More
