Riondo’s Ristorante is located in the heart of historic downtown in Galveston Island, TX. Proprietors Don McClaugherty and Chef Rico Caminos offer Northern Italian cuisine crafted from generations of family recipes and are known for their “Farm to Fork” and “Sea to Table” values. We are proud to source our ingredients from local farmers’ markets, fresh seafood from The Galveston Shrimp Company, and beef from 44 Farms.
Every plate is made to order from the freshest ingredients — even dessert.

Edgardo “Rico” Caminos
On a daily basis, he not only devises off-the-menu featured items for both lunch and dinner, he also oversees and participates in the creation of most of the integral ingredients for his dishes. He makes his own pastas and sauces; the pizza dough, Focaccia, and Ciabatta breads are baked in house; and Rico even goes so far as to make his own cheeses and the ladyfingers for his Tiramisu.
