Large restaurant. Genuine food. Family atmosphere. Best to book beforehand. We were satisfied with the overall experience dining at Rizzu. Ideal for seafood. Other dishes such as meat dishes were delicious too.

Been there for a touch and we are really disappointed about the food, so ridiculous the way how they cook on the dishes and anything. Very expensive the bill at the end. Review obviously negative. Eat and cook fish is another thing!

Starter of traditional prawn cakes was followed by a great seafood platter - as it was lunch we just shared one between two and found it more than adequate. Food was fresh and delicious, the wines very reasonable and the coffee was great too. Recommended.
