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!

We found this little hole in the wall after searching Diners, Drive-in's and Dives. Arrived Sunday just after opening time, we got in without a wait. Massively eclectic interior, close quarters while eating (except for the Best Table In The House...which is where we sat) friendly servers, fresh ingredients, can't say we were disappointed with any aspect of our dining...

We were in town for Spring Break with our girls and found this gem on Trip Advisor! We enjoyed this small quirky Italian Cafe! Loved all our dinner choices! We dinned on Clam Linguine, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Lasagna, and Risotto balls. The lemon ricotta in the lasagna was a pleasant surprise!!! Flavors are spot on, not too heavy. Would highly... More

My wife and I have been to Bizzarro's many times and we always feel that we have had a terrific meal. Fresh pasta with great sauces, terrific salads and desserts make it a "go to" place for us. My wife clams that the pasta and clams are the best she has ever had, and she has sampled this dish all... More

It's best to expect a long wait. We did, and spent a pleasant hour at the Blue Star Cafe next door with drinks and appetizers. The atmosphere at Bizarro is eclectic, casual, friendly and a lot of fun. The wine list was on point and the salads, which come with the meal, were fresh. We all devoured our pasta dishes.... More
