History

Eat. Drink. Love Italian.

The Rizzuto's family continued resilience over generations has grown their legacy from its early beginnings as a simple Vieux Carré grocery stand, founded by their immigrant ancestors, into their present-day, new restaurant concept, Rizzuto's Ristorante & Chop House. A once in a lifetime experience… is precisely what we strive to deliver to our guests at Rizzuto’s Steak & Chop House.  Savor ‘La Dolce Vita,’ or the sweet life, through the eyes of Grandmother Lena and her old-world recipes.  Indulge your senses, and allow them to guide you through an intimate tour of Caporeale, the Sicilian village where the Rizzuto family originated, and where our age-old culinary tradition began. Let the aroma of fresh herbs invoke your sense of smell, the tannins of the wine invigorate your taste-buds, and prepare for an exquisite encounter!  Our dreams are big, but the mission is simple – ensure that each guest leaves as family.   The authenticity is what distinguishes us from the rest, the execution is what elevates our brand, but the passion is why we are driven to share this love of cuisine and culture, and why we warmly offer you a seat at our table!
 
At Rizzuto's, the menu proudly showcases the many flavors and colors of the Rizzutos’ Sicilian roots from classic Italian entrees like Shrimp Fra Diavolo and Crab & Lobster Ravioli to Prime steaks & chops as we marry old world and new world cooking traditions and generations of exceptional cooking. Additional highlights of the menu are Brisket Salad, Bruciuluni, Crab Pasta and the succulent Lamb Rack. Buon Appetito!
