Description: Rizzuto's Italian Restaurant and Bar in West Hartford, CT combines a warm urban environment and genuine hospitality with a rustic Italian menu and authentic stone-fired Neapolitan brick oven pizza that focuses on fresh ingredients, simple preparations and great value. Rizzuto's is a community driven, family friendly Italian restaurant and gathering destination for everyone to enjoy a great dining experience. In 2008 Rizzuto's opened its second Italian restaurant dining & bar location in West Hartford, CT's Blue Back Square, a retail, dining and entertainment district. The large multi-dimensional space dazzles with an active display kitchen, large stone-clad wood-burning pizza oven, antique-designed wood-burning grill, pasta pantry, and a private wine room for events.

This restaurant was recommended to us and the recommendation did not disappoint. Our server, Monica, was efficient and delightful. Appetizers were excellent. The burrata capresse was very good and the meatball vegetable soup was excellent. Full of flavor. Everyone ordered the chicken parmigiana. The portion was large and the sauce had a wonderful taste. The manager, Lynn, is a wonderful asset to this restaurant. Not only is she very engaging but she makes it her job to go to each table and welcome guests as well as making sure they are happy with their meals. We will certainly be back and will bring our friends. it's a great place for dining in Blue Back Square. Worth the drive for us from Branford.

Great restaurant in West Hartford/Blue Back area with warm, open atmosphere. Both my daughter and I are gluten free and although an Italian restaurant, they are exceptional in offering GF pizza crust, pasta (penne) and other options on the menu. Highly recommend it. Happy hour looks great as well

A good Italian place. You can customize your Pasta dish by selecting your sauce, protein, veggie & sauce. You can customize you antipasto plate. Good menu with many selections. we had a party of 15 and everyone was pleased including a Vegetarian. Very tasty!

Totally enjoyed the brunch along with my family. The sausage was so different from the normal restaurant offering. Plenty of leftovers for 2 more days with the omelets. Coffee was very good, as were the hash browns. Added bonus, hubby received a $25.00 gift card on Father's day. Service was good. Pleasant waitress. Can't wait to go back and have dinner.

The food here is awesome. The happy hour is not one to be missed. The bar is area isn't too too large so not great for big groups but perfect for a few friends or a date night. The drinks are good too. Even though the food is free there are incredible deals on the happy hour menu. Soooooo worth a visit!
