It supposed to be a romantic dinner, but it was ruined by a very mean, rude and screamy waitress (named Kimberly).

Rizzi's offers consistent service with very good food from a menu that offers a wide selection of entrees. The prices are fair and the serving sizes are fine. The restaurant is a great neighborhood type place...easy to get to and parking is generally not a problem.
