The Cottage Chestnut Hill has it’s origin in two different lifestyles. John grew up surfing the beaches of Southern California. Laura grew up in Wellesley and is the third generation in her family to have a business in town. Our decor, service and food reflect the casualness and familiarity of So Calif and the sophistication and warmth of New England. Please take a moment to say hello on your next visit. Welcome to the Cottage! — John + Laura

We are committed to serving food that will be creative, yet “classic,” service that will be impeccable but not intimidating, in an ambiance that will be elegant, yet comfortable and inviting, ensuring a dining experience that will be extraordinary and memorable!

Unwind, Italian-style, at Rialto, where James Beard Award-winning chef Jody Adams brings an Italian perspective to New England ingredients. This September and October Rialto's kitchen turns its focus to the snowy mountains & mild valleys of Trentino-Alto Adige, whose ideal climates lend themselves to fresh fruit, hearty meats and sausages, smoked hams, and cows milk cheeses like Asiago-- all of which you'll find on our new Fall Dinner Menu. Current menu offerings include Smoky Speck with Stuffed Grape Leaves; handmade Rye Tagliatelle with chanterelles, squashes and asiago; Venison - Chop and Sausage - with buckwheat polenta, and Apple Strudel with Dulce de Leche and Rosemary-Cinnamon Ice Cream. The Boston Globe awarded Rialto a coveted four stars in three consecutive reviews and Gourmet Magazine named it one of the "World's Top Hotel Restaurants." Visit www.rialto-restaurant.com to learn more about private and special events, cooking classes and new menu offerings.

"We had a fantastic Valentine's Day dinner here.
We've been coming here 2-3 times per year since the restaurant opened.
Never disappoints.
Salmon tartare appetizer.
Fish soup as good as anywhere in France.
Perfect pasta with Lobster.
Fresh riff on the American Classic of carrot cake.
Well-made cocktails, nice choice of wines by the glass. Even the coffee was good.
Gracious and professional service."

"I started in the bar, waiting for a colleague. There were few customers when I arrived. It took twenty minutes for a waitress to ask for my order. To be clear there were three employees on duty. Apparently none of them was able to figure our that their pay checks ultimately depend on serving customers. Bad start.
Moved to dining room for dinner.
The food is quite good. Presentation of dishes is attractive. Room was stylish, hip.
Service is cheerful but utterly inept.
Our sweet waitress brought us the wrong cocktail, the wrong wine and a wrong main dish. All was fixed, but my salmon was returned to sit under a heat lamp while my conpanion's duck was being prepared.
With so many good restaurants in the area, no need to come back."
