Rizzuto's is a good Italian fare restaurant, with a decent variety of dishes and OK pizza. The bar has somewhat of a scene at HHs. Service is good. I go usually once a month.

Every time I select oysters (and or clams). I like local Blue Point and usually here are quite good. They do not come with vinegar though, which sometimes is a good option. Little neck clams are excellent. Pizza has a great chewy consistency and usually well cooked. This time I went for the funghi option, which was good but not outstanding. The mushroom flavor was a bit hidden by too much bacon. In other places I had porcini mushroom pizza and that's something different. Net net, would have loved less bacon and more mushroom. Wine is generally good, right amount for a glass and decent selection. I was alone and sat at the pizza bar which could be entertaining. I will be back. Certainly oysters and clams. But prosciutto pizza will probably be my next choice (tried in the past and loved it).

Ok my husband is from Italy so we are definitely picky about Italian food. He says it's the best pizza he has had in the us outside of Napoli. We always eat at bar, the staff is great, wine excellent, specials tasty, and appetizers never disappoint. Parma pizza and prosciutto arugula pizza are not to be missed!! Also, the reverse happy hour (sat and sun 12-4) is a steal.. You can't go wrong! Definitely check it out for an affordable quality meal!

I like to sit at the bar in restaurants and Rizzutos has the best bartenders in town.There is a nice selection of Italian wines and about five beers on draft and then several others in bottles.The bread, the linguini with clam sauce,the crabcakes,and the mussels are all excellent.The pizza is quite good too and comes with a thin crust.

The atmosphere is especially inviting in cold weather and in the spring and summer the outdoor seating is fun.

A very upscale atmosphere with an attentive wait staff. The very expansive menu and wine list leave many decisions to be made. Some nice reds are offered by the glass. The meatball app was very good and the salads were very fresh. a very good first experience. Looking forward to my second trip
