A long time ago I'd seen an episode of DDD which featured Bizzarro Italian Cafe. On both visits the food here is just amazing, and it doesn't matter which dish you order. The pink grapefruit sorbet was also very delicious. The service was excellent and the server was full of suggestions. Be prepared to line up. The restaurant isn't that... More

This is such a neat place and I can see why Diner’s Drive-in’s and Dives highlighted it. I came by myself during a business trip and had to wait for about 45 minutes to get seated. Not too many seats in the place as it is obviously very popular. It was certainly worth the wait. The décor is a crazy... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. Our group included 2 children. Staff was welcoming and friendly to all of us. The atmosphere is quirky to say the least....but in a good way. The room was welcoming and comfortable. Our food was excellent....portions are moderate. Wonderful handmade pastas...mine had shrimp in a Lemoncello sauce. For dessert we had Angel Fluff...a panna...

The bread, the food, even the ginger lemonade was delicious, I had a lasagna and a Cesar salad, so was very simple but the flavor was so good! My husband also enjoyed a lot his food.

This was our third visit to Bizzaro's: the first two were before the Food Network and DDD "discovered" this place. On this visit, the main courses were good, but not excellent: the forest floor mushroom entree and the clam linguini were not bad, but not up to previous standards - maybe because we were there on a Tuesday night? not...

With all the great reviews (and Guy's strong recommendation), we were really looking forward to eating here. Unfortunately, we were so disappointed. We had the rice balls, eggplant and the "famous" linguine with clam sauce. I cannot say that I liked any of the three dishes. Sorry. The staff was delightful. The atmosphere is bizarre, but fun. But the food... More

Met old friends here to grab a bite and were so happy we did. Fun atmosphere and really good pasta dishes.

A real quirky place serving excellent food, went here twice on a recent holiday once as a couple and once with the family. The hosts could not do enough to provide the food we wanted as there were 4 vegetarians in our party. All the food was excellant and served with a good carafe of house red. The decor is... More

We found out about the restaurant on the Triple D list and it didn't disappoint. The phone was busy when we tried calling for same-day reservations so we opted to try to drop in. We got there about 5 pm and were lucky enough to get a table for five that had just opened up - the line of customers... More

This is not really typical Italian restaurant but an experience one should have. Funky decorations inside but all food is delicious. There's always a wait as restaurant is small but packed!
