Had dinner last night on St. Patrick's Day. Fortunately, the dinner crowd was not a rowdy one. Lots of families with well-behaved children. Great service from Alexandra. Food is always a good value in family-friendly atmosphere. They often have a buy-one get one free entree nights. Sign up for their e-mail address to get these notices.

We love Rizzuto's. Have been going regularly for a few years. Excellent brick over pizza. Great wine list. Food is fresh and well prepared and service is good. A great place to go with family.

A good value proposition. Menu is a leaning to Italian but with some other choices. It's a nice family place at affordable prices. We went straight into entrees, pasta & pizza. Went down well. Good sized portions and good flavors. Dessert is standard fare but good stuff. Open kitchen & huge fire lend to the ambience. It's quick, easy, parking... More

We go to Rizzuto's at least 4X/yr. Has a lively atmosphere, good service, very good eats and drinks. Burrata app was much enjoyed by the four of us, my wife's salad with salmon plate left clean. Butternut squash ravioli entree really good, meatball pizza very tasty. Like all area restaurants, there are no bargains, with tip and tax, figure $45... More

We've been going to Rizzuto's since it opened in Westport several years ago. It has a good diverse menu - pizzas, fish, meat and pasta - and they've all been very good. The bar is big and active and they serve a good drink. The prices are reasonable and it's a fun place to be. I happen to favor their... More

Was here with another family on a busy Friday night. There were 8 of us total, half kids. None of the kids ended up ordering off of their kids menu, but off of regular menu. Wide array of choices, steak/seafood to various pastas. My Son opted for just a bowl of Clam Chowder that he said was very good. Another... More

I only be in town twice, but each time I've had an absolutely fantastic meal here. The meals are awesome but what made it even more enjoyable was our server. She was the best! I will stop by every time I am even close to here.
