Cozy restaurant atmosphere that is a favorite for locals. Orders to-go available. Staff is always friendly, and the food is fantastic. Weekly specials often showcase fresh hand-made specialty pasta.

What a quaint great restaurant to enjoy an Italian meal and a reasonable price either as a couple or family or getting together with friends you can't beat the specials and every Italian entree. Try Rizzi's on Sheridan for the best Italian ever!
