Our party of 10 dined at Rizzuto's for a working dinner meeting. We were seated in a private area and treated like VIP. Veronica was a very attentive and friendly server. We ordered apps and pizza. Everything came out fast and was tasty. We could not eat everything that we had ordered so we had plenty of leftovers; yet, a very reasonable bill. I always leave Rizzuto's very satisfied.

My husband and I dined at Rizzuto’s on a Saturday evening. We made reservations - which I highly recommend! It was packed! The seating was a little squished. We sat at a table in a nook by the window. It was so drafty we had to move seats. The next seat was just as cold so we ate with our coats on. Something has to be done about the windows, especially for the winter months. The wine list was wonderful. We had a bottle of Cabernet from Tuscany. Delicious! We ordered the stuffed garlic bread for an appetizer and split the large Caesar salad. Both very good. My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan. It was ok. Overdone chicken but tasty. I ordered the beef short rib dinner. Very good! For dessert we shared the creme brûlée. It was good but should have been a little warmer. Our waiter was very, very good. Very attentive but not overboard. Overall an “ok” experience but we wouldn’t rush back.

Really bad experience. It was very crowded, super noisy and waitress was very busy so she forgot our drinks... we waited for our dinner for 40 (after waiting for our drinks for 20, they were so busy they couldn’t even see us calling them) when we finally got our dinner, my steak was dried and completely burnt on bottom and the potato gratin was so burnt I couldn’t even cut it! When I brought this to the waitress’ attention she said “I’m going to make sure they know about this”
This was a $30 dish which I couldn’t even eat, I expected at least an apology... or a discount or something.... we had to pay the whole check (bare in mind I couldn’t eat my $30 dinner!)
Never returning there, it was a horrible experience and I’m not recommending it to anybody!

My husband and I went for a midweek dinner in a cold night. We shared the risotto balls to start. He ordered the bolognese, his favorite, and in order the lasagna. Both were excellent. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

The salad entree was over dressed but an adjustment was made to the bill. Everything else was delicious

Unfortunately the night we went there was a problem with the heat. We were not told about it even after we asked for the heat to be turned up. We even moved our seat from the restaurant to the bar to warm up by body heat. At the end of the night when our check came the manager came over and told us about it. Would have been nice to know when we arrived. Made our first experience a bad one and we didn’t even get compted a drink or dessert for the inconvenience.

Food was not good. Chicken way over cooked. Server was good but everything else was uninspiring.
