We love Rizzuto's. Have been going regularly for a few years. Excellent brick over pizza. Great wine list. Food is fresh and well prepared and service is good. A great place to go with family.

A good value proposition. Menu is a leaning to Italian but with some other choices. It's a nice family place at affordable prices. We went straight into entrees, pasta & pizza. Went down well. Good sized portions and good flavors. Dessert is standard fare but good stuff. Open kitchen & huge fire lend to the ambience. It's quick, easy, parking... More

We go to Rizzuto's at least 4X/yr. Has a lively atmosphere, good service, very good eats and drinks. Burrata app was much enjoyed by the four of us, my wife's salad with salmon plate left clean. Butternut squash ravioli entree really good, meatball pizza very tasty. Like all area restaurants, there are no bargains, with tip and tax, figure $45... More

We've been going to Rizzuto's since it opened in Westport several years ago. It has a good diverse menu - pizzas, fish, meat and pasta - and they've all been very good. The bar is big and active and they serve a good drink. The prices are reasonable and it's a fun place to be. I happen to favor their... More

Was here with another family on a busy Friday night. There were 8 of us total, half kids. None of the kids ended up ordering off of their kids menu, but off of regular menu. Wide array of choices, steak/seafood to various pastas. My Son opted for just a bowl of Clam Chowder that he said was very good. Another... More

I only be in town twice, but each time I've had an absolutely fantastic meal here. The meals are awesome but what made it even more enjoyable was our server. She was the best! I will stop by every time I am even close to here.

We went to this restaurant on Saturday, Sept 3rd after working our butts off at the Blues, Views, & BBQ fest. We were originally going for lobster rolls at the new Lobster Shack.

Went to Rizzutos Lobster Shack. I had the shrimp roll and my mom had the lobster roll. The shrimp roll was very good. Needed a little more salt. The Cajun fries were great. My moms lobster roll was good. A lot of lobster and seasoned well. I do think there a-little pricey. $17.95 for lobster roll and fries but otherwise... More

I was intrigued that RIzzuto's has a new "Lobster Shack". We went today. Server said 10-15 minutes, actual time 22 minutes. Warm or chilled lobster roll is $16.95 and MINISCULE. Seriously under seasoned. Did they run out of salt? Oh and they served the rolls with coleslaw that was FROZEN and inedible. This was the worst lunch I have had... More

Good morning and thanks for your feedback. You are the first guest to tell us our lobster rolls are small - in fact our feedback has been overwhelmingly positive given the fact that we use fresh meat from an entire lobster on each roll. We are new and still have a few bugs to work out (such as a fussy... More
