Shrunken Menu is Disappointing

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... read 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

The first time I tried this place was really good. I always order take out and my favorite dish is Chicken Marsala. Like I said the first time was great. Sadly I went to order on a day that they have 50% in all their meals and it was very disappointing. The food was extremely greasy that you could see... More

This local casual restaurant offers a broad variety of Italian dishes, but the real star is the house-made pasta. Since this was my first visit here, I ordered a fresh pasta sampler plate containing 2 different ravioli, manicotti, and a meatball. While the plating was a bit sloppy and served with too much sauce, each of the pasta items were... More

Dined with 2 friends who had the chicken Parm and liked it. Sauce is fairly plain, but chicken and pasta were cooked properly and served hot. I had a chicken meal with vegetables and a wine sauce that was served over spaghetti, which was a nice surprise. Like chicken Marsala with goat cheese on top! All of our meals were... More

If you're looking for the bling, this place doesn't have it, but it has good quality traditional Italian, at good prices, with pleasant servers. Portions are very large, but you will enjoy the next day. Sauce is a bit on the sweet side, but no "agita". The chicken parm never disappoints, but I tried the Chicken Melanzan - man, oh... More
