So I'm sitting hear trying to figure out what to say about Rizzuto's. It's a nice enough place, nothing terrible, nothing great. Perhaps it's best attribute is the ambiance. It's a nicely lit, open floor plan with high ceilings, a fireplace and a pleasant subtle aroma of burning wood , a view into the kitchen showing the wood burning brick oven. The bar is a large L with two big screen TVs. There is also some outdoor seating, the drawback there is it is immediately adjacent to the parking lot.
Our waitress was very good, coming over quickly to take our drink order, again coming promptly to get our food order, and frequently visiting us to check if everything was okay.
Our food was mostly good. The lobster bisque was much too salty and had very little lobster. My oven-roasted free range chicken breast was well prepared and flavorful, as was the accompanying broccoli rabe. The artichoke salad was not as good as it could have been. The dressing was too heavy in lemon and did not draw out the rest of the flavors in the salad. The desserts were sizable and very enjoyable. The cannolis were crisp with a tasty delicate filling, the tiramisu was classically prepare and very good, the flourless chocolate was good, but not your typical "flourless" chocolate cake. It was very light, and certainly seemed to me that there was indeed flour as it was somewhat like a devils food cake. The accompanying raspberry sauce was excellent. All and all a good experience.
