Our food server was so accommodating. The table by the fireplace priceless. Food extraordinary.
What a nice dining experience!
Our favorite restaurant. We're there almost ever yweek.
Great food and service. Great place.
King lobster roll was to die for!! Also meatball appetizer was amazing
As always I recommend you get the fish specials. They are unbelievable. I had the Sword Fish this week and it was good.
The food was excellent and the server was exceptional!
I highly recommend the Fish Specials. I had the Halibut and my wife the Sword Fish and we were both pleased. Finished off with the flourless chocolate cake and it too was delightful
Birthday East upstairs or
Reserve an igloo or cabana in the rain
We sat outside in a "cabana" for COVID protection & it was a cool, windy evening. Despite that, our server was cheerful & food arrived hot. They're doing a great job in extenuating circumstances.
Clams casino were amazing.
Very good experience! Nice server and everything was delicious
Alysen, as always delivers excellent service. We feel very fortunate to have Rizzuto's in Westport.
Asked to leave before we were finished, calamari chewy and did not have red cherry peppers green peppers not spicy. The Lobster Roll was excellent. Oysters we’re gritty not cleaned well.
Nice new floors. Great food
Always satisfied when dining here. There is always something on the menu of interest. Staff is friendly and efficient.
Love! Our go to!
Alyson makes the best Dark and Stormies. My wife gets one every time we visit.
food was awful and service stunk!
over priced for the quality of the food!
We are outside in one of the private tents. This was our first outing since October. Everyone felt very safe and al covid protocol were followed. The clams casino were delicious and so was the halibut special.
It was so nice! The igloos are the way to go if you’re looking for a unique experience. The waitstaff are friendly and so accommodating. The food is good, the drinks even better.
No one does covid-compliant outdoor dining better than Rizzuto’s. We dined in one of their cute Cabanas, essentially a tent with one open side. Outside of a couple of snafus (an overhead light and a propane heater that keeps going out,) the logistics of winter outdoor dining were executed well. Pictured here is one of their Uber-cool Igloos. They are closed structures with a zip up door for server access. Each has lights and a couple of heaters. We’ll be back with a few more people to try one out. It’s a tough time for restauranteurs, kudos to Bill and the team for going above and beyond to not only survive, buT thrive, all why providing diners with a special experience.
It was our first time and we were celebrating a birthday. The food was amazing and Teresa was awesome!!! We will definitely be back!! Thanks again!!

Andrea (Andy) was a Ray of Sunshine on a dreary day. We got the lobster rolls and were impressed not only with the taste but with the amount of lobster. I recommend them.
Great food, great service and great menu for the whole family (even the little picky eaters)!
We sat inside and the tables were well spaced and the food was delicious. I felt very COVID safe.
Updated review as owner was gracious enough to follow up on a few mis-steps we had on our visit. Overall good food, nice atmosphere and a dedicated owner.
Our tent was great. We had to wait a while (20 minutes( but we grabbed a drink and stood near the fire pit. The tent was perfect. Just us. It was quieter than when we used to eat inside. The heaters kept up warm and the food was perfect. Just as good as always!!!
Rizzutos is always good value, I enjoy the food and the service is good.
Best, freshest seafood, period. Long-time customers who can’t wait for the return to normal dining.
Day Specials are amazing and they have GF options! Eat in the cabana's, clean and so much fun! Loved the fire pits and the heaters warmed us up. Servers were amazing friendly. Will definitely be back!
Always delicious! Love the calamari, chicken parm, penne vodka and pizza. Fresh seafood is always great, too. Cold local beers on tap, great wine selection, clean environment and super friendly and accommodating staff
Birthday outdoor dining. Waitress was attentive and kind. Great night!
Always our favorite restaurant and glad to have such a welcoming and professional wait staff. They, and the owner, made dining outside in February in the Pandemic, something to look forward to.
As always, the service was wonderful. The outdoor dining is great.
Items on the specials menu where not available and Manager offered no apology or offered anything to soothe our annoyance.
No cappuccino in an Italian restaurant? Absurd
Seafood and linguine was sub par
Service from a very sweet and personable waitress was pleasant but there was no pouring of wine after the initial service and no refills of water glasses.
Deserts were adequate, but certainly, no up to par with most good restaurants.
Ambience was Spartan and uninspiring.
We will not be returning.
We will not
Resturant was freezing cold, and pizza came out burnt. Bottom of pizza was coal black and could not eat it.
Good afternoon. Thank you for taking the time to let me know about your experience. I am so sorry about the heat and the pizza. It was a challenging night with the heat breaking at exactly 5 pm. Making matters worse, our maintenance company did not arrive until the next morning. I am also sorry about the burnt pizza - not at all our typical quality. We strive for 5 stars, and I am so sorry we missed that mark. I know your next visit will be on par with our usual standards! Bill R
Another amazing meal at Rizzuto’s! Our waitress, Andrea, was incredible, once again, we absolutely her!!! Mussels, oysters, gluten free pizza, the burger, all of it, delicious!!! Thank you! A very special place!
Cold. Heating problems.
Hi Brian, I am so sorry about the heat the night you dined with us. It did malfunction and was quickly repaired the next morning. I hope we can serve you again soon, in a warm dining room by the fire! Please let me know before your next visit so I may personally look after you. Thank you! Bill R
I highly recommend that you always order one of the fish specials. They are always terrific.
