Homemade pasta, delicious Cobia, we wanted to lick our plates by the end of the meal.
The service was perfect, the wine just right and a delicious chocolate desert with espresso to finish off a perfect dining experience! We have been so inundated with the "Bahama Bill" style Italian restaurants here this place is like an oasis in the desert.

My wife and I shared a bottle of excellent of wine with dinner. The waiter had very nice wine knowledge and paired it well with our meals. The atmosphere was quant and romantic. We both loved our dinners and the service. Our server and server assistant did an outstanding job. I could see other tables were equally impressed with their servers as well.

I went to Il Ritorno, a couple of days ago. The ambiance was very cozy. The people who work there are the friendliest people.
The food is incredible, the combination of food outstanding. The presentation unbelievable.
I think I've found my favorite restaurant in town.
