"One of my favorite restaurants. I was there with my husband for the first time. My favorite item, Cobb Salad was no longer on the menu. This was disappointing but I was quite happy with my alternate choices.
They were very busy and it took a while even with our reservation. Our server was very busy and service suffered a bit. He was very pleasant but stretched a little thin. More a management issue than server. Suggestion, better coverage for the wine room. Also bring back the Cobb.

"The food is always phenomenal! I'm always impressed with the freshness of the food and really appreciate the use of locally grown, farm fresh produce. The chefs are fantastic and flexible when it comes to food allergies or dietary restrictions. I will definitely be back!"

"Party of 7--we ordered a variety of meals from lobster risotto to pizza. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The server was mostly absent. The restaurant is loud so it's impossible to have a conversation among a large group."

"This was my 3rd visit! The salads, especially the Caesar was perfectly delicious!!!!! Caesar dressing is tough to master -- some chefs make it too strong (fishy) or too heavy (creamy) -- not this Caesar! It is perfect in flavor and texture!!!! I have had it once with chicken and twice with salmon and both are great!!! The last visit was for lunch and the service was a little slow -- maybe someone did not show up for work so we ran out of time for coffee and maybe a little dessert!! Oh well, next time I'll go for dinner!!"

"Went to Rizzuto's w/ group of friends before a movie. Place was very busy on a Friday night. I had cavatelli w/ short ribs. It was delicious. My husband had ravioli red pepper special. He said it was good but had way too much sauce on it. Some friends ordered pizzas, some meals and some salad and crab cake. All was good and waiter was very conscientious on getting us out in time for the movie. Overall dinner was very good. I have been to the restaurant's happy hour many times and that's great as well."

"Our server was prompt, friendly and efficient. Our meals were very good. I had pasta, girlfriend had fish. The place is pretty noisy but, not untypical of a family restaurant. Bar looked very busy and the folks there seemed to be having fun."

"Our meal last Saturday was a disaster. We were given a poor table. No waiter came to the table and we had to ask several times before one came. The service was poor. No one came to the table with bread until we asked several times. The rest of the meal was also poor. The food is at best average and certainly not worth the high prices. Actually this restaurant hasn't been worth going to for several years, but we keep giving it a try. No more. We are done with Rizzutos"

"Rizzuto's has been a favorite of ours since it opened and we will continue coming here despite a significant problem at the outset. We arrived early for our reservations and noticed a few empty booths. My wife asked the hostess if we could have a particular booth. Some minutes later another couple arrived who appeared not to have reservations so we were quite surprised when they were shown to the booth we wanted while we were left sitting in the alcove. When we inquired of the hostess, she told us that the couple that had been seated was a friend of the waiter in that area! Ten minutes later we were offered a booth next to the busy hostess stand and declined and finally got a perfectly nice window table for two. Our waiter, who we had had previously (Henry, I think) was charming and helpful. We split a Caesar salad, I had what in other restaurants is called an eggplant rollatini (delicious but not quite hot enough) with an ample side of al dente ziti. My wife had ziti with vodka sauce and their locally sourced sausage. Both dinners were excellent and ample enough for leftovers. The only other thing worthy of note is that there excellent small loaf of bread was served with a tomato sauce and we both thought it would have been better with olive oil since the sauce overwhelmed the bread. We will certainly return."

"I always order Caesar salads for my side salad and Rizzuto's was the best ever!!!!! The very first time I ate lunch there it was the Caesar with chicken -- yummy!!!! The second time was for dinner and I had the Caesar with salmon -- yummy, yummy!!!! My friend also had a salad (not Caesar) and she commented that it was very, very good! Can't wait to go again and try something different!!!!!"
