My husband and I were celebrating our first Anniversary decided to dine here. We were just blown away by the way we were treated by the waitstaff and management. The waiter wished us a Happy Anniversary the moment we were greeted. We ordered our drinks and food together. We ordered the daily specials for our entrees. I had the New... More

This is the third time we came to this restaurant. Every time we come the experience seems to be worse than last time. This time the food was just ok. I ordered a roasted chicken dish and the chicken was a bit undercooked. My wife thought her pasta dish was average. But the worst thing was the service. Granted, it... More

Our party of 5 (all adults) had a 6pm reservation to celebrate a birthday. This was our second visit. We arrived 15mins early which seemed to throw the front desk into a spin. We waited and waited while much discussing took place. Another party of 2 arrived and were shepherded straight in. It was most odd as there was quite... More

We have been a couple of times. Every thing has been great. Different pasta dishes, chic parmigiana, steak, fish, all have been good. Portions are decent, although can vary. Sometimes huge, sometimes average. Ask for the homemade pasta, you will thank me. Service has always been good.

Didn't realize they did brunch - but they do it well. Lots of "breakfast-type" options, well served. Cinnamon buns are delicious - but take 20 minutes as freshly baked - so make sure your group is willing to wait.

Rizzuto's is the place to be if you want to great Italian meal in Westport. A very lively bar scene in addition to a great dining atmosphere. The four dinners that we had we're all top drawer. The trout and the salad entrée with salmon were excellent. The veal Marcella was one of the best ever. The scallops were good... More

This restaurant has something for everyone. Inside fireplace, bar area, outdoor seating, enclosed window area. We ordered the combination antipasto, 2 meat choices, 2 cheese and 2 vegetable choices. There were four of us and this was really a nice amount for all of us. Flat bread is also served with this. The eggplant caponata was exceptional! We then ordered... More

A quiet Monday evening my hungry family really appreciated the generous and tasty pizza and pasta. A good wine list and the Monday night promotion of half price wine is to be recommended.

Easy to find and good parking for Westport, I met a friend for lunch. Rizzuto's was her recommendation and she was right on. We both had Cobb salad with hangar steak and it included blue cheese, avocado, bacon, and very thin, crispy onion rings. It was delicious, a good sized portion, and we ate the whole thing. Excellent, attentive wait... More

Relatively new pizza chef - Martin (sp.?) - creates the most DELICIOUS pizzas. (And we had ours to go - can't even imagine how they would taste fresh out of the oven.) Really - this guy is a master. From what I hear, he is presently only there on weekends. If you're a Neapolitan pizza fanatic/aficionado, you have got to... More
