“fresh food made from scratch”
Sheryl & Risto Toukola purchased the restaurant in 1999 and operated it as Mayo's Ristorante. In 2007, Risto accidentally lost his life and Sheryl recently renamed the restaurant "Risto's Place" in his honor. It is said that every restaurant must have a specialty. Sheryl's specialty is fresh food, made from scratch with produce and fruits from the local farmer' market. Herbs are all home-grown, desserts homemade daily, soups and sauces simmer long hours on the stove and not heated from a can. Sheryl serves only fresh fish caught in the wild in American waters. Hers is the only restaurant in town that serves bonafide Black Angus Omaha Beef. Sausages, salamis and cheeses are still sent to Sheryl from specialty stores in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (GO STEELER'S!!!) Coffee, however, is shipped in from her favorite roastery in Seattle, Washington. She is all about "BUY AMERICAN". Her dishes are from an American manufacturer as in her silverware and glassware. She gets canned tomatoes from a California grower and cannery. She purchases every item she can American made. Prosciutto, however, would not be the same unless it was aged in Italy.
