Table was a little wobbly but the meatballs and ambiance made up for it. Tasty and fun a bit pricey though.
Food was great, servers very friendly. Santa and Mrs. claus was a nice touch.
Great meal, great service, nice vibe.
Thanksgiving dinner was great.
Disappointed they cannot extend the happy hour drinks to the tables. I had a table 15’ away from the bar and was forced to pay 2X for the same drink. I guess if you want to take advantage of happy hour you have to enjoy your drinks in an unhappy atmosphere.
Scrumptious dishes with superb service!
Entrees for all palettes and dietary requests.
We had a wonderful server who made the experience very friendly and special. We were celebrating a birthday and the night went off without a hitch! Food was excellent and came out on a timely manner.
From appetizer to dinner to dessert, everything was delicious! We had a few dietary based changes that were graciously accommodated. The only thing that was off was the beverage service timing. We waited a long time for our initial cocktails, they arrived well after our appetizer and our bottle of wine, to have with our main course, was delayed enough that I told our table to put your forks down or we will have no food left to go with our wine.
We went to Rizzuto’s for my husband’s birthday dinner. This was our first visit and we were incredibly impressed and blown away from start to finish. The high quality of the service and the food was impeccable - I highly recommended the antipasto appetizer! The food was exquisite! I would come here again without question - there are many more things on the menu we are excited to try! Fantastic experience!
Overall the evening was very good but the noise was almost unbearable. We all left hoarse due to having to shout! The food and drinks were tasty.
I would but my husband and I came for the first time to your restaurant for our anniversary. Our first table was in a little tiny nook. I asked for a different table because there were several available. Waitress was very nice! Our Drinks came out way into our appetizer, our entree came out before app was even finished and side salad came after half way through our meal. Felt very rushed! Reservations were for 6 pm we were out by 6:45pm
Fun and delicious, only issue was entrees came out while we we’re still working on our salads
Very good value. Salads and main course were both very good. Our server, Chris, knew the menu and helped with the sides.
Wine list is broken down by type within red or white to help with pairing.
The Bombolini is worth the wait.
Came from out of town and took a recommendation from a friend. Great recommendation. Very fast and friendly service and DELICIOUS!
On a Saturday night in West Hartford, we could not have asked for a better experience. Our service was fantastic and the food was timely and delicious. The limoncello shots and complimentary dessert were the perfect touch and made the evening really special. We will definitely be back! Thank you for the perfect birthday dinner !
Great service and food
Table was ready when we got there. Our waitress Monica, was very attentive and helpful. Great food and wine selections.
Absolutely fabulous in every way! Exceptional service, amazing food and great prices. A fun atmosphere and ambiance! This is a MUST go to location.
Celebrating our sons girlfriend’s birthday. Delicious food, great service and attention. Gluten free pizza crust not the best we’ve had, but not bad. Gobbled up everything.
We went for a birthday brunch, asked to be seated outside, and were seated quickly. Drinks came fast, food was delivered perfectly and hot! The birthday girl was given her choice of dessert at no charge. All in all it was a delightful experience and we WILL return.
The noise level is just too high for a quiet conversation. Our server was good, but tried a little too hard. The food was, as always, excellent.
Had 2 issues with our meal/food. But the manager was on top of it and made it better.
Celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect. Great food.
Went and sat at the bar and had an AWESOME bartender. He knew the menu really well and helped me pick out food, and shortly after some friends of mine came in. He happily accommodated all of us to a table and served us and the entire bar. Our drinks were never empty before he asked us if we’d like another and he was very polite and easy to talk too. Made the whole experience great!
Steve behind the bar was excellent. I ordered a lime drop martini followed by a watermelon mule and both were out of this world! Awesome job
Fabulous all around, can't remember waitress' name but slim blonde lady with glasses was great
Great evening, helped by the perfect weather and the fact we ate outside. Service was excellent, timing was perfect. Food was very good, none of it was poor, some was excellent. Portions ample. Prices reasonable. And all in the heart of the West Hartford shopping mall area.
Server was very impersonal. Barely made eye contact and had a pout on face all evening.
Faded glory at this restaurant. May have run its course.
Waiter covering too many tables, could not attend to us (2) regularly, party of 6+ was clearly the priority. Table had no salt, though pepper was offered when apps came. Took about 6 min to get waiter for salt. My app Buratta caprese? Was supposed to come with bread and did not. Swordfish steak - only half was cooked. The rest was pink. Took about 10 min into meal for waiter to come check how we were doing. Waiter offered to have it cooked again but at that point would have taken too long as friend with me was already finishing her meal. No manager apology and no reduction on the bill and I could not eat half of the fish, though the waiter assured me “it probably wouldn't make you sick”....
Our server, Ryan, was very friendly, attentive, accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu! I had a wonderful dining experience and look forward to returning in the near future!
Excellent dining experience and service!!
Really underwhelming experience. Why bother participating in CT restaurant week if you’re going to serve mediocre food. My friend had the steak and fries, which was tasty, but the broccoli was clearly from a bag. My bolognese was large chunks of unseasoned beef and prepackaged tortellini, and the “mini fruit tart” dessert was a few berries in a plain, mini pie crust shell.
Our server wasn’t attentive, she left us sitting after our entrees for about an hour, dropped off the check, I had to remind her that we still hadn’t gotten our desserts. Then when I opened the bill, it wasn’t our bill - which is no big deal, mistakes happen, it was just the cherry on top of a mediocre experience.
We got the $30 app, entree & dessert combo as it was restaurant week. Bolognese was delicious. The swordfish a little dry around the edges but tender inside. Our waiter, Steve, left for the night after serving the dessert. We found this out when the bartender came over to check on us and see if we needed anything else. In spite of that we will visit again as the menu had many more tempting options.
Good food, poor service. It was a Friday night at 7:30, the place wasn't packed but the wait staff were nowhere to be found. Food was great!
We went for West Hartford restaurant week. Service was very good. Our salads came without dressing, tomato mozzarella salad came without the balsamic glaze. We asked server about it and she said the glaze wasn’t included in the restaurant week menu??? What, who serves a tomato mozzarella salad without the glaze?
We all had the flank steak entree. The medium rare steak was so tough you couldn’t cut it with the steak knife or chew it. Medium well steaks were okay. Broccoli side had florets that were still frozen!
We all had the fresh fruit tart with ice cream for dessert. With the first bite of mine, I bit into something very hard. It was a broken piece of plastic! We asked for the manager. She was very apologetic and credited my dinner. We will not be back or recommend this restaurant.
Excellent service and wonderful eggplant rollatini. Perfection.
Everything was fabulous. We needed a few dietary accommodations and they were all taken care of.
Overall great food and service.
Birthday was so good and fun!!! Great place for apps drinks and dinner! Highly recommend
