We had a party catered by Rizzuto's in our home for 60 people this past Saturday and couldn't have been more pleased with the professionalism, quality of food and the overall service. Maryellen and her assistant were extremely helpful in arranging and preparing everything. The service and cleanup took all of the stress out of entertaining. We would highly recommend... More

I dropped by here last minute this week to grab some take out for the family. While I did like my dish, I thought that the prices were pretty high. I had ordered two "make your own pasta" dishes and it came to $40, WITHOUT any sides or salads. I'm sorry to say that penne a lavodka is not worth... More

We held a family gathering for over forty people here and the event, food, and staff were excellent. Many of our guests, who had never been here before, had highly favorable comments about the food. The staff could not have been more helpful with service and special needs.

Been 4 times and each time we walk away full and satisfied! Don't let the strip mall exterior fool you. This place is the real deal

We were a party of four that went for happy hour. There are only 2 tables in the bar with 4 seats. After purchasing almost everything on the happy hour menu and several drinks later we asked for a $5 individual pie to go so that we may bring it to a relative in Bethel Health care that we were...

We make a point of stopping here every time we are in the area. The food is definitely Italian style, freshly prepared to order, and delicious. I had the basic salad which was all fresh types of greens, with a delicious balsamic dressing. My penne with marinara sauce was cooked to the right amount of doneness and the added shrimp... More

Food here was good. Not amazing. It's a bit on the pricey side. Employees were friendly. Restaurant was clean. Our particular server wasn't exceptionally attentive. My son had pizza and I had pasta. Wouldn't go back for those, but it wasn't a bad meal.

I eat at Rizzuto's several times a year with my work colleagues and I've never had a meal I didn't enjoy. After trying several entrees I've found one that I especially like...penne pasta with chicken in vodka sauce. It is delicious! On my most recent visit I was part of a group of 8 that needed separate checks on a... More
