"The son of a northern Italian mother knows how risotto should be cooked; most restaurants fail the test. Not Geranio. The arborio rice in their lobster risotto was slightly al dente, nicely flavored and most important without added the cream, fillers, etc. that are often added to create the (false) impression of creaminess. Cooked right, arborio rice is creamy on its own; Geranio's chef understands that. That, along with my wife's nicely cooked salmon entree and the two fruity, affordable Sangiovese selections at the top of the wine-by-the-glass red wine list, are the elements of the "Outstanding" score I give to Geranio's food."
