My wife and I have dined here many times over the years. Our most recent visit was again, not surprisingly, very good. We all had a different selection NY Strip, Veal Parm, Scampi, and another veal dish. Everyone gave a good review. Dinner for 4, with 6 drinks among us, came to just over $120. It was unusually quite the... More

From the service to the food, everything was excellent. My husband and I went on a Monday day night and although it was quiet, no details were missed. We'll definitely return!

We decided to split a "Scallop flat bread" Chopped lemon pepper grilled scallops served on baked flat bread with a basil pesto, roasted red peppers... More

I realize food is subjective but the food here was just really bad. Good place to drink and then eat somewhere else.

Rizzi's offers consistent service with very good food from a menu that offers a wide selection of entrees. The prices are fair and the serving sizes are fine. The restaurant is a great neighborhood type place...easy to get to and parking is generally not a problem.

I have to say that having dinner at Rizzi's was one of the WORST dining experiences I have ever had in Rochester. Frankly, the rave reviews on this sight are very surprising. Are we even reviewing the same restaurant? I am not one to write reviews, but this experience was so awful that I would feel remiss to not warn... More

First, let me say that I have NEVER rated any restaurant or lodging lower than 3 stars. In fact, I tend to look on the bright side of things and assume that folks are doing their best - maybe just an "off" day. But this review reflects not just poor quality food but the unhelpful and confrontational attitude of staff... More
