A cutesy eatery and pizzeria in Lower Hutt that serves Western classics, Rizzo's is perfect for an informal catch-up, a family dinner or a low-key date night.
It's a restaurant that doesn't take itself too seriously! Rizzo's fuses the vibes and decor of a daytime cafe with an Italian bistro. Keeping things cool and playful, turquoise chairs are mixed with diner-style booths and mellow-yellow walls which only means one thing; summer feels all year round, which in Wellington is hard to come by!
Their starters are all our favourite comfort foods in one place! Who hasn't munched on cheesy garlic bread in their pj's or dipped their chunky chips in aioli in front of the telly?! As well as these moreish morsels, you have vegetarian arancini balls, halloumi chips and garlic prawns that come with a garden salad.
The main event? PIZZA! Straight from the pizza oven come the traditional contenders as well as a grilled steak, pork loin and meat rotisserie topping. Other mains include a plethora of yummy offerings; they're hearty, homemade and are the equivalent of a foodie hug. Burger fanatics will love the buttermilk fried chicken burger and carnivores are spoilt for choice with the pork belly, ribeye steak and lamb rump.
Rizzo's is also a member of the famous Wellington Hospitality Group's Social Club. Points are awarded for every dollar you spend and don't take long to add up. Better yet, when you join the club, you will earn points at all 30 of their venues! It takes seconds to join (and it's free).
*Please note, that on your First Table booking points will be awarded on drinks only as your food is heavily discounted already.
