    My wife had the veal and I had the 12 oz. bone-in filet. Both meats were great...the baked potato was "ughh"-microwaved all the way. Dessert was the bread pudding-great. Service was slow and meal took a while to come.

    My husband and I usually visit twice a month for happy hour. This was our first time dining in the restaurant for a birthday celebration of one of our children. It was an excellent experience from the time we walked in through our meal the service was wonderful. We will certainly visit the restaurant again. C. Pelican

    Was disappointed in oyster appetizer. Crab cake was very good to my taste but my wife was a bit disappointed since it was supposed to 95% lump crab she found it lacked seasoning . The cap steak was excellent while the oyster bordelaise was tasty but oysters very overcooked to the point it was hard to taste the oyster. The side of mushrooms were great and the creamed spinach was overloaded with cheese which is all you could taste.

    I've never had a problem with this restaurant. The ambiance is definitely off but that has nothing to do with Rizzuto's but rather the limited dining capacity secondary to Corona. As usual, the service was excellent and the veal parmigiana can't be beat!

    We ordered oysters and the waiter did not bring them before our entrees - he said he forgot to write it down. I ordered my food based on the oysters so my salad was good but my entree was unfulfilling.

    I had heard the seafood salad was wonderful. At $20 it is steep for a side salad, but I ordered it anyway along with Chicken Marsala. The seafood salad was salty and had cut up shrimp and a few pieces of crab meat tossed in romaine and tomatoes, It was very salty and certainly not worth $20. I asked if there was a half portion but there was not. When the entree arrived, it also had a side salad. Seems like the waiter would have pointed that out and asked if there was a substitute I would prefer. The marsala was very tasty and served with a mound of pasta. We had to ask for bread as well as refills. All in all, I was disappointed and probably won't rush back anytime soon.
