Italian
Our Concept became a reality through inspiration from two particular families who provided us with generations of secret recipes and techniques. Along the Southern Coast in Naples the Rizzo family gave us direction on several traditional dishes, many of which they serve their families today. Bold flavors, fresh herbs, and seafood right off the docks are all staples in the Rizzo home. In Northern Italy we were fortunate to find the Pisoni Family who were passionate about their cattle and poultry. Their ribeye cuts, veal, free range chicken and tender filet mignon were the most exquisite we’d ever seen. They shared the mastery of cooking with whole cream, hand churned butter, sautéing and reducing of fine wines until they created the smoothest, silkiest sauces we’d ever tasted. Our thanks and gratitude is owed to the Rizzo/Pisoni families. In honor of their Italian heritage and our appreciation for them allowing us into their lives, we’re so very proud to bring you Rizzoni’s!

I was looking to impress on a first date so of course I chose Rizzoni’s! The outstanding ambience coupled with the excellent food makes it a no brainer every time!

We arrived on time and were seated. Two of us ordered your house special Seafood Risotto, two ordered your steak and one your pork.
The pork was fine but the risotto although very tasty was cold.
The steak was cooked to perfection but again was not warm.
We have eaten there before and not had this problem.
The waitress was efficient and pleasant.

The service was excellent and the wait was not long. It was a quiet period and we were very relaxed and not pressured to finish early. The waitress was very pleasant, advises us on the choices available and made us comfortable. Also, although my mother's birthday is today and not yesterday she served the dessert with candles and everything. It made us feel very special. Great customer service

Took my girlfriend for a date best service I could ever ask for from the warming staff who welcomed us with smiles hardly something you see. We arrived at 7 and left within an hour. The food and drinks came so fast we were shocked. Even managers came and asked about our experience how was the food and waitstaff and it was nothing but impeccable as we told them . Would recommend anyone on any given day

Whilst the food was generally good, the wait staff is clearly not attentive enough as upon complaining about the heavily battered calamari-less dish we got, the manger replied “well I’m seeing calamari in there”. This was unacceptable which he tried to cover up with giving “free” ice cream whilst the untouched dish of calamari sat there - the appropriate response would have been to comp the at-fault dish

The experience was great but I did have to send back my steak to be cooked well done. But overall a nice experience.

After being seated at around 2pm, we weren’t served any bread until 3:30pm. Worse yet our meals didn’t come until 4pm. I have never waited so long on food at any establishment. The drinks took quite some time as well. To make things worse, when I received my meal, the meat was cold (actually cold). I had to call the waiter to take the food & they simply threw it on the grill again. Absolutely disappointing.

Food Was Delicious. The noise from the live singing at the plaza was a little annoying. The wait staff was a bit slow in the draw and it was not even a busy night. There were only 4/5 tables with customers yet food seemed to take long to arrive especially dessert.

My steak was cold, flavor was good but meat was stringy. There was no red wine to enjoy with my steak as part of the steak Friday special. Had to settle for the white.
My wife's grouper over cooked and chewy.
Pasta was excellent, my mom quite enjoyed it.
Service was very good, though our food took way too long to get to us. A table that was seated about 15mins after us got their order before us.
Cheers.

The management made a huge mistake with Valentines Day. Our server had 13 tables and it showed. I would not recommend maybe it was the day but they should have known they would be busy.

The food did not come out right and we did not get drinks we ordered. I felt bad for the server.

The food tastes great and the ambiance was stellar my only complaint is the portion size, the parmesiano I believe is what I ordered and it was barely enough for me.

We were a party of six. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Our food came and was very tasty. The restaurant was not crowded and we had a delightful, uncrushed evening with Christmas ambiance and great food!

The apple tart was covered with chocolate sauce and made the dessert not edible.

All other items were really good.

I was hoping for a slightly more romantic setting as it was my anniversary and the table that I was placed on was very small and rocked side to side. The waiter was pleasant and helpful. The food was good. The atmosphere was casual. The prices were a bit more than I expected.

This was my first time at Rizzoni’s and it was money and time well spent. Beautiful setting with a lush, jazz infused atmosphere. The service was excellent, I did not have to wait long for the different courses. Delicious food made me want to indulge to my heart’s content. I will definitely visit often. This could fast become a favorite place to dine!
