If you love Italian with a desi touch, then head to Riso – the all new Italian vegetarian restaurant. I was here for lunch and loved the food. The interiors are great, the service is good, staff are attentive and the food is very different. Oh yes, their Lebanese food is great as well. We…

These dishes include flatbread piadas,…
