Located in the heart of Harvard Square, Rialto restaurant and lounge offers elegant and whimsical interpretations of regional Italian cuisine created by James Beard Award-winning chef Jody Adams. Rialto's newly renovated dining room and reinvented menu are a living record of Jody's passionate relationship with Italy. Each dish is a reflection of her travels up and down the country, her long-standing friendships with purveyors, and her study of regional traditions. In 2007 Rialto received its third consecutive four star review by The Boston Globe.

To make her vision of rustic Italian elegance a reality, Jody partnered with Cambridge-based architect Maryann Thompson. A white stone path inspired by an ancient Roman road leads guests past an illuminated onyx bar into the dining room, where swooping banquettes and cozy nooks create an intimate dining experience. Saffron, olive and white drapery evoke the warm colors of the Italian countryside.

Short of hopping on a plane, dining at the new Rialto is the quickest way to get to Italy.
