10-year-old Rialto Pasta Bar & Grill to become a Fremont classic

Posted by Nancy Leson

Rudy La Valle, owner of the little Green Lake Italian restaurant, Rialto Pasta Bar & Grill, is moving to Fremont. The retail block his restaurant sits on is slated to be redeveloped into (all together now) a mixed-use condo project. The original Rialto will close after dinner service Saturday, April 26th, so get over there and say "Arrivederci!" Green Lake neighbors. Then keep your fingers crossed that Rialto's move into the old Fremont Classic at 4307 Fremont Avenue N. (most recently owned by Doug Armatage of A New York Pizza Place ) goes smoothly.

"We've been renovating for the past two months and shooting for a May 1 opening," Rudy told me. "The ugly sheds in the front are going away in order to liberate the patio for summer outdoor dining." The heart of the menu will remain the same, though we can expect a longer list of pastas. "Moving and expanding is always a gamble," Rudy says, "but we have a strong base of support and hope to bring in a whole new crowd from the Fremont neighborhood."
