Description: RIZZI'S ITALIAN RESTAURANTS is a family-owned business operated by the Rizvani family. Chef Dave Rizvani, along with his son, Bekim are your hosts. We take pride in the fact that we live in the area and work in the area. You, the customer, are important to us because you are our friends, our co-workers and our family. Our customers are the most important people to walk through our doors, and our staff strives to treat you as the VIP's you are. RIZZI'S RESTAURANTS have been operating in Peoria since 1995, with the first Rizzi's being our Sheridan Road location, and Rizzi's on State added in 1997. Rizzi's on Sheridan has a cozy atmosphere to meet with your family and friends and is a popular local eatery. Rizzi's on State, located in downtown, is perfect for dining prior to a Civic Center event and has additional space for parties and an outdoor patio area. We pride ourselves in knowing our regular customers and they are like our extended family. Dave & Bekim Rizvani

“We go there often”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Rizzi's is a wonderful meal and we visit in the winter and summer--when it is warm, we like to sit outside and listen to music. If you are looking for a good meal downtown, Rizzi's should be at the top of your list.

“We Love This Place”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Living in Peoria, all of our lives, we think Rizzi's is the best Italian restaurant here. In addition to the excellent service and staff that remembers you, the regulars are just as friendly. Some nights we order pasta fagioli and eggplant rollantine. Some nights we order full dinners like pollo sorentinino and pollo ala Rizzi. Some nights we order Stromboli or their NY style pizza. The food and the people make us come back every time.

Reviewed 21 April 2014

Eggplant appetizer is amazing ...most so called Italian restaurants do not bread and fry their eggplant ..Rizi's does..growing up with Sicilian inlaws,I was blessed to have the best Italian cooking ...Rizi's is the place I go to recapture my fond tasty memories through their wonderful dishes...
