Our party of 3 meet at 6:00 at Rizzi's and were seated in a nice table. This a quaint little restaurant and once inside, you'd never know you were in a strip mall. We ordered breadsticks for an appetizer. Service can be a bit slow, but it's worth it, order an appetizer. We each ordered pasta dishes and were very... More

My husband and I had a good dining experience at Rizzi's. The bread is delicious! My husband had a salad, and I had the stuffed pepper soup which was very good! I don't remember the names of the dishes we ordered, but both were outstanding! I had a pasta dish with chicken, sausage, and mushrooms in a red sauce; and... More

Very nice people serving great food. The flavors are refreshing and have the right balance of pasta and protein. Being local still keeping it affordable and delivering quality food is the key feature of this restaurant.

We chose Rizzi's for a Valentines dinner. We had been to Rizzi's many years ago and for some reason hadn't considered it. We were very pleased with the food and service. We chose 2 appetizers as it had been a long time since lunch. The stuffed mushrooms were flavorful and the garlic bread was large slices with a crunch crust... More

Service was great.... appetizers yummy... ( fried polenta special).... I had the Cannelloni, it had a great sauce, but one of the things they stuff it with are carrots... which I don't mind, but these weren't cooked long enough and had a bit of a crunch to them. This was our first time dining here... I will go definitely try... More

For Peoria, this is good Italian food in a personal setting. It is a better value than upscale Italian chains, such as Biaggi's, and somewhat less expensive than PV II (another good Peoria choice for Italian). We enjoyed the Veal Sorrentino (3 small cutlets nicely arranged and layered with eggplant and fresh mozzarella or similar cheese) that came with a... More

Love this local restaurant. The staff is always on point, a team, friendly. We had the calamari, lentil soup, ossobuco, and the Pollo Albanese. Food is always good, and the chocolate martini is a must try.

We eat there almost there almost every week. It has modest price, quiet atmosphere, filling dishes, friendly service, good food, and good variety in the menu. What more can I ask?

Intimate and friendly, the wait staff have been with this restaurant for some time and that speaks volumes. This is a really nice Italian Cuisine restaurant. I highly recommend the Calamari appetizer which it is easy to make a meal out of. The bread is exceptional and the olive oil which is on the table with some parmesan cheese and... More
