Michael Rizzo and the Rizzo’s Family of Restaurants have been serving Western New York for over 30 years. In 1980, Michael’s parents, Vito and Rosemary Rizzo, opened the original Rizzo’s Casa di Italia at 2763 Eggert Road in the Town of Tonawanda. The restaurant offers a comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff and continue to be the perfect place to share a meal with family and friends. Schnitzel & Co. on Eggert's menu features authentic, homemade pastas including lasagna, ravioli, gnocchi and manicotti-- all made in house and with the freshest ingredients. The daily specials found at both of these casual dining venues have become community staples over the last three decades. The legendary Wednesday Chicken Parmesan and Friday Fish Fry have been a guest favorite for years.

Wrong size beer came out as to what was ordered, soda glass remained empty for an extended period of time. Appetizers and entrees were outstanding, dessert was a joke.

Went another couple and we all enjoyed the food at Schnitzel & Co. Would have liked a larger selection of German or European beers but other than that it was a very enjoyable dining experience.

Slow service, one hour wait for food. Waiter
Adam was slow, bringing things out one at a time. Swiss steak was so tough and almost burned in one side. Stuffed cabbage was hardly stuffed, more like cabbage in sauce. Saltiness delicious but sides were cold.

Food is always good. Spinach salad with hot bacon dressing was a hit.the sausage stuffed mushrooms were very flavorful. I wish the spaetzle were smaller. They were more like large dough pieces sauteed in butter they should be smaller and pillowy. The salmon was moist. Always a bonus. The black forest cake was good. The bread pudding would have benefited from being warmed up. Serving it cold was not successful.

We would have never went there had it not been for restaurant week. But im so glad we did! My fiancee and i went there for the first time Wednesday and we were beyond impressed! I left there already looking forward to our next visit! From the service, to the incredible food, to the welcome feeling every employee gave, this restaurant instantly became a new one on our list!

Food was very good...went for Restaurant Week, had stuffed mushrooms as app and Jager Schnitzel main course, both very good. Dessert was a bread pudding, hopefully done better when not a Restaurant Week special. Needed a sauce or something...quite dry. Not really busy the time we went...would have liked to not have to wait for server to come around.

Took my mother-in-law for a fish fry and it was great. Got the breaded fish and it was absolutely delicious. Have been here before and the staff is friendly and the service good. Will definitely be back soon.

We really enjoyed our food at Schnitzel and Co. Rubens were very juicy almost needed a fork to eat them. The pretzel was unique in appearence (the shape was the Z in their logo) and the beer cheese dipping sauce was a hit for all. The fish fry was delicious! I happily took the leftovers home for lunch the next day. My only complaint was that the menu prices online were lower than those at the restaurant... Keep you online site updated folks. Our waiter was terrific and very accomodating when I asked for a birthday candle in my husband's strudel which by the way he said was delicious. We will be back.

Pass Schnitzel & Co. twice a day. It looked so inviting I had to try it. Went on 3/9/19 with two beautiful ladies ( my spouse and Mum). Katie was our attentive server with great presentation of the exquisite fare. The atmosphere is relaxing and we look forward to visiting again and sharing our experience with family and friends.

I enjoyed everything. Except for some old family issues it was a good time. Staff was very friendly and cooperative and efficient. My grandson greatly enjoyed the rouladen and he's a chef. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the atmosphere and even the music were like a true biergarten.

The food continues to be excellent and the service is friendly. I am only disappointed that every time I go they are out of Spaten Optimator. I do not understand how a German restaurant cannot keep their dark, German beer in stock.

They did offer me a free beer to make up for the lack of the beer I wanted. That was nice of them.

I ordered the 2018 menu and the pork schnitzel was very dry, the cabbage was excellent and the dessert was very cold almost frozen. My husband had a chicken sandwich which was good but his fries were terrible, the potato pancakes were ok. Overall I was a bit disappointed I had gone to the Transit location and was not impressed. I was hoping for it to be better since it is close to my home.

The occasion was Restaurant Week. The staff was friendly, though it was pretty busy and the food seemed to take a long time. The food was delicious, though not all was hot when served. I think I’ll go again on a regular night and order off the menu. You would be hard pressed to find a menu like this elsewhere. Delightfully different. The background music was quiet enough to hold a decent conversation, which I appreciate.

We liked our chicken schnitzel, but were disappointed in the sides. The green beans were canned, with added bacon. The sweet potato pancake was not as sweet as I expected for being a sweet potato. The dessert, Dutch apple pie, was very disappointing. It was not homemade and dry. We took our desserts home. There was a dollop of whipped cream in the container, but I added a little ice cream too as I thought it was that dry.

Snitzel breaded chicken tasted of oil only. Could not eat it. Carmilized brussel sprouts were so undercooked,hard,unflavorable. And, potato pancakes were plain greasy. Couldn't eat them. Have ordered this meal in past and was always excellent. I think maybe it was so busy due to Restaurant week and cook had difficulty handling this crowd. The upside, chicken dumpling soup was awesome!

We took my Mom there for her 90th birthday. The food was authentic and delicious. The reuben, german potato salad, and potato pancakes were so good. And not like what you get at other restaurants.

I did mention when I made the reservation, it was my Mom's special birthday. I thought maybe they could have given her some ice cream or something for the special occasion. Many other restaurants acknowledge a special occasion with a small dessert.
