Rizzuto’s was rec by a friend who lives in WeHa. Our party of 4 was very satisfied with our meals and our server. Our server was even kind enough to go take care of our parking as we were confused as to whether or not we had to pay for the garage. He was a gem! Our server was also aware of our timeline for the night and got us out of there in time for our 6:30 engagement.
Found this on Yelp! with great reviews. We started with a charcuterie platter. My only suggestion would have been to offer a better selection of softer cheeses. Otherwise, the platter was very good. The garlic cheese bread-so good! We split the shrimp/mushroom risotto. It was delicious. Would I go again? Certainly!
This was our first time here and we do plan on returning again soon.
Food was great
Was able to enjoy my time conversing with my partner. We never felt rushed. We were always attended too. The food was fantastic, and the portions were generous.
Great restaurant! Perfect place to take the family and everyone is happy!
First time are this restaurant - I had the meatball pianni - very good - nice small salad came with it - one friend had the spinach salad with chicken - not a bite was left! Other friend had the tomato soup and grill cheese - again nothing was left on her place (lol) Needless to say - we plan on having another get together at Rizzuto's - Wait staff was very accommodating and pleasant.
We loved the restaurant!
Excellent Easter Brunch! Very accommodating and eager to please.
Enjoyed the ravioli w shrimp and prosciutto - although it was too heavy with butter/olive oil. Tasty, but swimming too much in oils....
Great meal and even better service. Everything was top notch. Mussels were great. Monkfish cooked perfectly. The freshly-filled cannolis were among the best I have eaten. Our waiter, Taufiqul, made the night even better. He treated our kids (10, 13) very well. He treated them like diners in their own right, and didn’t make the mistake of asking me or my wife to order for them. We were there for my birthday, and I will certainly return.
If you are a party of two then table options are bad. We were right near a computer station. At times there were four waitresses within a foot of our table lined up to put in there order. Not going back.
Maitre D went out of her way to give us a table we liked- thank you!
Food was mediocre - fettuccini w pasta was very goopy, and over cooked pasta. Would not order again. But will return for other dishes.
The wait staff was friendly. The price fix meal was a great value.
Our food was excellent. Our waiter was well versed in food and beverage options. Unfortunately we told him we were on a schedule bc we were going to a play. He did not ask, and we didn’t know about the Playhouse on Park discount. Toward the end he got busy with another table, and we ended up being late for the play. We got the dessert as a take away, but it wasn’t heated properly due to the rush.
Not entirely impressed with Rizzutos. Expensive meal for what we got. If you like Tiramisu, don't get it at Rizzutos.
The table locations for parties of 2 were dark and spaced close together. Had much better experience with party of 6 in a booth the month before.
Our waitress was very kind and super friendly and attentive.
Noise level was high. Good service until dessert and then they got backed up but all in all we had a good meal. We will be back.
We have been to rizzutos many times and always enjoyed our meal... atmosphere..staff...but unfortunately this time the chicken parmesan was horrible...it looked burnt...very dry...hard to cut....and chew... hopefully this is not what we can expect the next time we visit...my husband had your roasted chicken and enjoyed it very much....
When visiting West Hartford, we find no reason to go anywhere else. Since Fall 2017, three visits and great food each time
Our table suck there was water under the table all over the place service was slow and even forgot half out food !! I keep giving this place the benefit of the doubt but it always disappoint me in some way ! At least our serve did everything she could to accommodate us !
Went here for Valentines Day and was perfect. Thank you!
I was disappointed with how quick the food service was, it made it feel as if they were trying to simply turn our table over for the next guests. Within five minutes of ordering or meals (we didn't order an app) our meal was delivered to us. The meal was only moderately warm at best and clearly not made fresh or even given the impression of being made fresh. There is no way that a lasagne bolgnese or chicken parm dish could be completed in about five minutes. It was very disappointing as we spent $20 on each pasta dish and had a bill of $70 after tip. We were there for Valentines Day and we will not be returning in the future.
Amazing Valentine’s Day dinner tonight! I had fresh pasta and a nice glass of wine. They even gave us complimentary chocolate covered strawberries for dessert! Can’t wait to come back.
Good food, fun atmosphere. However, the wait to order anything from a drink, appetizer, or a refill was a long wait. I believe a couple of bartenders on a special occasion are necessary. Ambiance was very nice.
The setting was comfortable, though a bit noisy as the place filled up, and the bar and wait staff were very courteous and responsive, The food was excellent.
Great night, great food and great service
We are frequent customers and we’re sat in the back after we requested a booth. We were told it was due to us only being a party of 3. That was not the case as the next 4 parties were a three and received a booth
Great food and service! Wine and beer by glass very pricey!
Food and service excellent
Food was very good however service was terrible. Waited 30 minutes for bread and salad. Another 30 minute wait before our entrees were served. Waiter never checked on us between courses.
Inconsistent with previous dining experiences.
Felt like we’ve had better meals in the past. It was also rather quiet ...
We are locals, we walk to all restaurants that West Hartford center and blue back has to offer. We don't go to Rizzutos too offer because there are better choices. We love brunch and have been to every restaurant in an area for a brunch. Past Sunday derided to give Rizzutos a chance...... there is a reason why we don't go there. Very slow service. We were sitting at a table for 10 min until someone stop by and they were not busy at all. Food was nothing special. Manager stoped by our table to see how everything was holding dirty dishes, gross...
Anyway, ok place to go if there is nothing else around, but not when there are so many other options.
I was planning a smaller get together which turned into a party of 6 and was happy Rizzutos let me book the larger party on open table app. As indicated, the noise level was definitely energetic, as this was on a Sat. nite around 6. THey have a mixture of some booths, tables with chairs and bar stools for seating. The format is open kitchen so you can see the cooks actively working. There is a nice counter in front of this scene which also included a pizza oven. None of my party had eaten there before. Most of us ordered from the pasta "your way" where you pick pasta, sauce, protein, and other things such as veggies. THe place does wood fired pizza as well. Overall, the food was tasty, served hot and in a timely manner. The wait staff never forgot about us but would pop over after extended periods which doesn't always work well. For example, as we got our pasta and had to ask if there was any grated cheese? If we didn't ask I am sure no one would have bothered to handle this. The pizza-eater gave it a thumbs up, it looked like a slightly thicker crust than a typical Italian thin crust pie, dinner plate size. Only real negative is it would be nice to get some complimentary bread served beforehand. Serving sizes were not gigantic and will hit the spot if you are hungry, but you aren't having it for lunch tomorrow. None of us had dessert, but from what I could see the waitstaff carrying the desserts were generous and done well.
Thank you to the general manager, Lynn, who treated us like we were royalty. Her customer service is second to none. We had excellent service and every part of the waitstaff was so friendly and attentive. I can’t wat to go back!
Dennis was our server. He was absolutely wonderful and the suggestions he gave from the menu were PERFECT
Food was good, not great. Started out with the cheese, meat and veggie platter. Enjoyed that very much, although it took forever to come to the table. Once the main dishes came out, no one cleared the appetizer and left it there the entire dinner, although it was empty. Dishes were good. Pasta a la Vodka was very tomato based with not much creaminess. Potato pizza was ok. Got the gluten free crust which seemed store bought and not very good. Toppings were good. Kids had sword fish and pasta. Both liked their dishes but weren't wowed.
Service was slow and lacked that personal touch.
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.
