Good food and efficient service abound at Ristobar

This beautiful Marina spot is the perfect place to go when you want to kick back and relax over a glass of wine and some cheese or if you are looking for a complete Italian meal to share with friends. It is warm and inviting while still feeling spacious. It gets four and a half stars.

Our party of 15 sat comfortably at neighboring tables in the semi-private room at the back (I say semi-private because people have to walk past that room in order to get to the restrooms), carefully tended to by our chipper, knowledgeable and easy-going server Michael. We ordered many plates to share, and each was successful, save perhaps, for a plate of wilted chard, kale and spinach that wasn’t wilted enough for my liking and made me grateful for having a strong set of teeth. Mind you, many people in the group didn’t have an issue with it. In addition to our sharp server, the efficiently run kitchen scored high marks. All of our dishes were delivered in well-paced succession so that there was always something to go with our wine (and raspberry sodas for the kids). All in all, ours was a relaxed and enjoyable two-and-a-half hour meal that literally left a good taste in our mouths.

Pappardelle

This dish was a delicous preparation of fresh pasta, seafood, zucchini and spicy tomato sauce. We ordered several of them so that everyone could get a couple of mouth-watering bites. It went really fast!

Gnocchi

The gnocchi were soft, pillowy and glistening with gorgonzola dolce latte and Sicilian pistachios. Even the Italians at our table were pleased with the quality and authenticity of the dish.

Valencia Pizza

This pizza comes with ricotta, goat cheese, asiago, pear and watercress on a crispy chewy crust. Really good savory and sweet combo.

Oven roasted beets

Think warm oven roasted beets with creamy melted fontina cheese together in one dish. For some, it was an odd pairing, but I enjoyed it.

Duck leg confit

Both kids simply loved this dish. My son even had two orders of it, on top of pizza and a chocolate trio dessert. The duck was served with mushrooms in a huckleberry reduction. Hearty, meaty, cooked perfectly with crispy skin and all. It’s a real winner.
