The predecessor to the Rancilio Silvia as the company's premier consumer machine, the Rialto was introduced at the same time as the Rancilio Rocky grinder in 1989.
Kevin Westberry (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: This machine will suite 99.95% of the people reading this review for decades. Why wouldn't you get one?
Bottom Line: If you can get a good one used, go for it. Parts are replacable, and it's a very solid machine.
James Bremner (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: If you can get a used one at a good price, it is a great machine to get you started.
Chris Nicola (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: I love it. If you are lucky enough to find one of these used for a good price buy it. The retail price is not worth it though, get a Silvia instead.
Brendan Getchel (quality: 5.6)
Bottom Line: Silvia hardware and performance in one ugly package. Jump on it at $250 or less!
Robert Holman (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: The Audry is a good solid serious "starter" machine capable of better than average shot quality. If you can live with its style, Audry will remain a sentimental possession, even after you upgrade to higher performing machines.
David Bogie (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Great machine but up against the Silvia itís no longer a viable choice. For the additional $75 or so you get much more in the Silvia.
