I had a sausage-stuffed chicken dish that was jaw-dropping. So tasty! Reasonable prices, too. We'll definitely be back again soon. —KurtSample

Perhaps he could have instead put all that extra salt in the marinara sauce (served over pasta as a side), as it was incredibly bland. It tasted like plain crushed tomatoes were poured over pasta. Please, add garlic, salt, basil, ANYTHING to give it a little character. I was not impressed with Rizzi's, do not recommed the place, and do not expect to return. —MerCDotes

The calamari was chewy and soggy, chicken french lacked artichokes, and steak au poivre was heavy on the peppercorns and salt. The side veggies were undercooked, almost raw. The bread and oil dip was pretty good, but not enough to make up for the rest of the food. The atmosphere is lacking and the cooking style is "old" and uninspired. We were really hoping to like it but we won't be back. —AutumnMarie
