The atmosphere is pleasant enough for brunch/lunch at 12:00.Sunday brunch menu only. We were seated in the main dining area in a booth. Same table layout since 8-9 years ago. I ordered the eggplant panini that had the bread lightly toasted and the breading on the eggplant was lightly fried, just the way I like it. I had the small... More

We hadn't been to Rizzuto's for a while but today we stopped for a late lunch since we were in the area and we are so glad we did. We started with fried calamari and they were excellent, crispy and not greasy,accompanied by two sauces, one spicy tomato and the other a creamy garlic. There was enough for two people... More

Great atmosphere and lots of food choices. My wife and I shared fried calamari, bruschetta and a sausage roll. It tasted so good we had one more sausage roll, boy were we stuffed. The place is very nice with a large outdoor eating area. We ate in the bar and had a full view of the dining area and parts... More

I have been to Rizzuto's several times in the last few months. It is a well-appointed, friendly restaurant with great service and good food. Rizzuto's is a neighborhood place and a successful one. Why? Because you can go there and order most anything on the menu and get a very good meal. Salads are large and easily shared by two... More

Wood top tables with real napkins of cloth increase the comfort of wood fired oven and an adjacent comfortable bar area with high table seating and flat screen tv. From pizza to wood oven heated Pasta and fish dishes all well seasoned this is a nice casual place to have a drink and dine. Prices are fair and service is... More

This is one of my favorites to go for Happy Hour to meet a friend. The specials are fantastic. You can get a glass of wine and appetizer portions of mussels, wings, sliders, and more for a decent price. Another favorite is the meat, cheese and vegetable platters, so good! The food is good, the restaurant is clean and the... More

Came here with family for pizza. I recommend making a reservation since most times I've gone without one I end up waiting a while- watching as late reserved guests fly by. The gluten free pizzas here are terrific- they don't leave you wishing you could eat the real stuff! We sat outside on their patio which was nice, they have... More

We ordered delivery and the young lady that answered the phone was polite and cheerful! I ordered calimari and eggplant and was told it would be 45 minutes. Dinner was delivered with plates, plastic wear, breads, olive oil and the food I ordered. It was delicious! Definitely worth going back for!
