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

Four of us went here after the Seahawks stomped the Rams and had 4 great meals. The Eggplant parmigiana spectacular truly was. The lasagna, clams, spaghetti with meatballs, and that wonderful dish that started with a P that I can't pronounce or spell were all incredible. The servers were attentive and fun. while you are waiting for your table, go... More

Enjoyable place to eat... good food but I found the menu very limited, it could do with a few more dishes..This place was on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. I think I expected a bit more so it fell short of my expectations..Could have also done with a bit more taste to the food.... Best thing, no use of the... More

No matter when we've gone to this restaurant we've waited for a table for at least 25 minutes. Reservations are only taken for parties of 6 or more. There's limited space within the restaurant to wait so people leave. They are called when their table becomes available and they have about 5 minutes to return. It delays everything more. The...

I have a feeling the locals would prefer not to spread the word of how great the food is here because it's a small restaurant and the wait could be very long or even impossible to get in. If you're able, try to go on a weeknight and hope for the best. Now about the food....we had five different dishes... More

We tried to go to Bizzarro Italian Cafe for Dinner and were told there would be over an hour wait so we ended up trying again the next night and were seated right away. We ordered the ravioli and the lasagna. I was very pleased with mine and thought my husband's lasagna was pretty good also but he was not... More
