At Your Service
Rialto

Stuff y or rushed service simply would not complement chef Jody Adams&'s exquisite new menu, focused on her interpretations of regional Italian cuisine. Nor would it match Rialto's soothing, airy new Maryann Thompson-designed interior. Good thing, then, that the service is a perfect combination of relaxed, low-key, and attentive-when-you-want it. Even on a jampacked Saturday night, you'll enjoy lingering over every morsel and sipping your wine slowly while indulging in good conversation — just as you would when dining in one of your favorite regions in Italy.

$28-$43; Charles Hotel, One Bennett Street, Cambridge, 617-661-5050, rialto-restaurant.com
