This was our first time to visit Rizzo's on our annual trip to Memphis. We had two people recommend it to us. I think it will be added to our group of regulars. The chef is amazingly talented and we could not have been more satisfied with the great food and award winning bread pudding.

Let's start with the service! The hostess, our server, the chef/owner - everyone, made us us feel right at home. They gave great advice and I was so pleased with what we ordered - the Chicken Pot Pie, The Chorizo Meatloaf, and for an appetizer, the Avocado Crab Salad to share. I still can't get over how fresh and appealing... More

This was a Birthday dinner for my 18 year old daughter. We were looking for a new experience, atmosphere, and good food. We found all 3! Love the art work! Three of us have multiple food allergies.... the chef reworked several dishes for us like it was very normal. Wonderful evening out!

My sister, daughter and I had brunch at Rizzo's before a matinee of BEAUTIFUL at the Orpheus Theatre. It is the perfect place for brunch, lunch or dinner before or after the theater. Original art for sale, white tablecloths, delicious food, and quaint venue!

We were there for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The place was surprisingly quiet. We had sandwiches which were ok, nothing that was memorable. The atmosphere was fine and the location was great. I would give it another chance because of that.

They have moved to Main St. Much nicer interior. Food is very good. Lunch is really a good buy. Vegetables are great. Never overcooked. Service has been good too. Their chicken pot pie is made with a top of puff pastry so is crispy, not soggy. Fish is very good as well.

Had noticed this restaurant during many recent visits and finally decided to give it a try. I wish I had tried it sooner. Have dined there twice since and have tried the nightly special (which was red snapper that evening) and their take on chicken pot pie. Both were extremely well prepared and delicious. Also the lobster pronto pup is... More

The food here is amazing and the service even better. I had the famous pot pie and the blueberry bread pudding and it was out of this world!!!
