Rizzuto’s Coming To Stamford!
Restaurateur Bill Rizzuto prepares to open his fourth installment of his popular Rizzuto’s brand of casual Italian dining. After the success of his Bethel, West Hartford and Westport locations, Bill is heading to southern Fairfield County to a neighborhood he knows well from his years as the General Manager of the Greenwich Hyatt Hotel. The space, formerly Route 22 American Restaurant and Bar, straddles the Greenwich / Stamford line at 1980 West Main Street in Stamford.
Oh snap, they aren’t going to be just nestling in to Stamford in cozy downtown, no. They’re going bold, and opening shop on the Stamford/Greenwich border. Could the culinary prowess of Stamford be expanding? Sure looks like it.
With an early November opening in the works, finishing touches to the large space are in motion, including the installment of a state-of-the-art pizza oven that just arrived from California, beautiful stone and tile work, spruced up woodwork and flooring, plush banquette seating, and Rizzuto’s signature granite antipasto bar and counter seating. The multi-dimensional space seats up to 160 people. With three levels of dining and a large bar area that can be sectioned off with retractable garage-like doors, Rizzuto’s event capabilities are numerous.
Have a look at their MENU…it’s mouthwatering.
