Love this restaurant. Hands down my favorite place to drag people to. Looks much fancier than it is. Diverse menu - from great burgers to divine mussels in garlic sauce. Delicious salads. But the real draw are the HUMONGOUS apple martinis. Some say they taste like liquid jolly ranchers. Let's just say they can be dangerous.

Rialto as os 4/11/08 is closed and under going re-construction. It was one of the first places on Elizabeth st. before the area took off like crazy. I believe it will open up shortly under the same name and management. Overall its fine.

Pros: Great space easy to sit large parties... decent food you can count on.

Cons: The steak is over priced and its the amaetur new york crowd on the weekends.

Service almost non-existent. food was nothing special and overpriced for what it was. Stay away from the steak. Doesnt merit any more of my time complaining.... Dont eat here.
