Dark and dirty, thick heavy red sauce drowns the pasta.

Table cloth was not clean, floors nasty. Prices are reasonable and portions are huge, but red sauce DROWNS all the pasta. Anything could be under there--hard to tell what the flavor is beyond the "gravy" (red sauce). Parking is fair--it can get crowded and hard to find space. There are finer... read more

This place is a diamond. The food is just mouth watering. The service is very good. Personable wait staff. Upgraded bar area for the sports enthusiasts. Have been going to this diamond for many years. Please enjoy.

I honestly can't believe nobody has rated this place 5 stars yet. I went here for the first time with my wife a little over a year ago, now we try to go back at least twice a month. Food is amazing, and prices are cheap. I see some other comments about service. We've never had a problem. In fact... More

We visited on Friday night after being away for a while. Food and Service were wonderful. Sadly we were shocked by the "pared-down" menu. What a shame. We miss the large 3-page menu with all the creative choices. -- We were not even told of any "evening specials" beyond the printed menu -- In a town of so many good... More

Russo's is a hole in the wall with food to match. Sauce isn't bad but that's all I can say good about our meal. Had eggplant Parmesan or at least that's what I ordered. It wasn't like any eggplant I ever had. My son had the lasagna and the ground beef was dry and tasteless. There cleanliness is lacking as... More

Since we had a party of 10, we decided we should call ahead and make a reservation. We got an answering machine and did not hear back until the next day. Stopped by around lunchtime but they were not opened. Thought perhaps we needed to make alternate plans but not to worry. Got a confirmation phone call and they were... More

Arrived on Sunday (2/23/2014) at 6:45pm. Waited for ten minutes for a hostess to seat us before finally asking the bartender to seat my family of 5. We sat for at least 20 minutes before a waitress acknowledged us - simply to say she would send out the other waitress. There was enough time to feed our 1 year old,... More

On a recent trip to Rizzo's, my husband and I were disappointed with the lack of customer service.We have been patrons of this restaurant for many years, but it is very doubtful that we will ever return. We waited at the hostess station for ten minutes. When the hostess finally arrived, she said we would have a short wait. We... More

We found Rizzo's while on vacation in our Entertainment Book. From the outside appearance we were not expecting a lot, heck even after stepping in the front door - I was a little underwhelmed. But after sitting and receiving hot bread with flavored dipping oil - we were won over. My son had the Stromboli - big enough for 2-3... More
