Rizzuto’s Restaurant Review

: Rizzuto’s is a Stamford mainstay for Italian cooking prepared in an open kitchen. The place is ideal for a quick bite or lounging at the long bar equipped with counter seating. Well-executed standards range from antipasti and salads to appetizers like spicy calamari and bruschetta topped with fresh tomatoes. Pizzas are baked in a brick oven, while entrées include moist, lightly grilled salmon in Provençal sauce served with potato leek ragù, and the heartier pan-roasted chicken breast with chestnut stuffing, red wine apples and haricots verts. Pastas also feature classics, like the penne alla vodka with jumbo shrimp and plum tomatoes in a light cream sauce. The wine list consists of California and Italian regional varietals; the full-bodied Chianti Classico works well with the meat antipasti.
