About Rizzo's Fine Pizza Co. Beer & Wine Bar
Since 1959, Rizzo's has been making our own unique style of Thin Crust Sicilian Pizza. Baked in old fashioned black pans fabricated to Mr. Rizzo's own specifications, these pies are thin, light & crispy. Particular attention is paid to the dough which is made fresh throughout the day and is the foundation of our menu. Our much loved full bodied sauce is both naturally sweet & tangy, and is made from choice California tomatoes. We use only real whole milk mozzarella and a blend of Parmigiano & Peccorino Romano cheeses for just the right blend of both buttery and sharp flavors. Our Neapolitan Pies are even thinner, and Personal Pies are thinner still. And while all feature exactly the same ingredients, each has its own distinct character & flavor profile. Add to this our creative toppings, fresh salads, & delicious made to order calzoni & stromboli, combined with a level of service & hospitality all too rare in the pizza business, and it's fair to say we specialize in happiness.

So yummy! The pizza is sooo good! We tried five different kinds including the BBQ chicken, Aumma Aumma, and the Quatro Formagi all were amazing! And the loaded garlic knots and cannoli were outstanding! Such a nice little restaurant with wonderful staff. My family truly enjoyed it. Thanks!

Rizzo's Fine Pizza Co.
We enjoyed Rizzo's very much. The food was good, service great and and atmosphere very pleasant.
We were a group of 5 , 3 adults , 2 children.
Small place , but great service , fresh food, and impressive wine list! I'm a native NEw Yorker and very critical of pizza. The pies at this place were to die for, and the options were endless. Great place for groups, and certainly child friendly .

The Ditta round pizza is highly recommended. The pizza crust is thin and baked to perfection (no burnt/charred crusts), the service is excellent. Truly a neighborhood gem in LES.
Good Pizza, Great Service
I brought visitors from Texas and we had a very good dining experience. The pizza was tasty and the service was great. Our server was very helpful with the menu and steered us in the right direction when it came to choice of pizza type (round or square, depending upon toppings). I'm a foodie and I'm quite used to spending too much money in NYC restaurants so it was nice to enjoy a casual spot on the LES with good food and a warm ambiance.

We loved it. It was evident that the ingredients used in our pizzas and salad were not only fresh but of top quality. What a great place and great pizza!

I went with some friends to celebrate my birthday, and this was an excellent place to do just that! It had great food, great prices, and great service. Bugsy was our server, and he gave good recommendations, and also referred us to a bar afterwards where we could "skip the line". I would highly encourage anyone to go here! There are a variety of delicious pizzas, and a good casual place to go with friends or a date!
Great thin crust pizza and beer!
Second time I've been to Rizzo's and it did not disappoint! The thin crust pizza is terrific, the beer was cold, and the service was great. It's now on my list of regular spots for the Lower East Side!
Great spot for dates or with friends
The service is great here. Really friendly, patient, and honest recommendations for various customers' palettes. Great spot to bring a date and/or just hang out with friends!

We had the "square" pizza. The crust was PERFECT; crispy. The flavors on each pizza were great. Definitely will return!
Fresh ricotta on the pies and in the cannoli. Tomatoes in the sauce outstanding. Good thin crust pizza in a cool, narrow joint.
Best glutton-free pizza & knots
My sister said that Rizzo's had the best glutton-free pizza she has ever had. She is a petite girl, but ate a pizza and a 1/2 herself!My wife (who is very careful about how she spends her calories) ate a few of the garlic knots and could not stop talking about how worth it they were.
My friends and i thoroughly enjoyed the food at this place. The pizza is a very thin crust and there are many delicious options. This is a great place for a pie. My only critique is that for a place with the words "Beer and Wine Bar" in the title, there are so few beer options. There were 6 beers available and although they were great beers, all local or small breweries, I thought they could have more beers to offer.
Rizzos downtown is a really good spot for thin crust pizza. It is well done and delicious. They have a wide variety of specialty pizzas and have happy hour until 7. The wine list is great along with the service.
RIZZO'S IS THE SPOT
I wanted to try the best pizza in NYC. I've had good pizza from a truck, good pizza from a local chain, really good pizza from a popular spot in Brooklyn (yeah that one), and really good pizza at a place I just stopped in walking down some side street. I've had really good pizza in Des Moines, Denver, Scottsdale, and Atlanta. There's really good pizza in So. California too. Where is the pizza that makes you stop and say, "Now I've have really great pizza. At least once in my life I can say I've had really great pizza?" RIZZO'S IS THE SPOT. I will say it again because I'll be back. Fresh, thin and crisp, round or square (we got both) yet still just a bit chewy, incredible like-no-other-taste. A great glass of wine. Honestly friendly people.
Second time we dined at Rizzo's - pizza is the best and the garlic knots are to die for. Server staff is excellent. We will return.
Went there with 9 girlfriends to celebrate an engagement, and boy were we pleased. The ambiance was amazing. Service was quick. The food was out of this world (garlic knots and fresh thin crust pizza) We will definitely be back.
Great Group Spot
Easy to get a big table on short notice, the staff is very friendly and accommodating, the pizza/wine is delicious and affordable -- great spot. Simple.
A wonderful pizza joint located in the Lower East Side; part of a chain located throughout the city. We loved our pizza here, and the loaded knots were to die for! It's a small place with only a few tables, but the ambiance was cool and the service was great. Make a reservation or just stop by, you'll be glad you did!
We were looking for something
We were looking for something beyond the usual slice at our local pizza shop and Rizzo's was perfect. Pizza was very good - we had to try a square pie + a specialty pie which were both great though I preferred the thin crust specialty pie; service was excellent; great wine and beer choices...everything that we were looking for to make our Fri pizza dinner more fitting for a date than just grabbing a slice of pizza and soda. The location is tiny so definitely better for smaller groups.
