Rizzuto's Stamford CT - A Sports Bar and More!

Tastemaker's Sampling

Rizzuto’s Restaurant Group expands their Italian inspired restaurant and gathering places throughout Connecticut with the addition of Rizzuto’s, Restaurant-and Sports Bar in Stamford CT, a fun and casual sports oriented restaurant featuring Rizzuto’s terrific food and delicious beverage offerings. 

Rizzuto’s Stamford’s menu caters to sports fans and families alike with a wide variety of choices. 

There's truly something for everyone at Rizzuto's!

Fans of this popular locale can attest that Rizzuto's traditional and favorite stone-oven fired pizza, pasta and Italian specialties can still be enjoyed, now alongside classic American sports bar fare.

Rizzuto’s boasts NFL Sunday Ticket and Red Zone programming and its new Tailgate Menu, Rizzuto’s version of a football happy hour menu served during ALL, yes, you read that right...ALL NFL games.

There are 15 large HD Screen TVs throughout the HUGE bi-level space accompany and classic sports fare such as: a variety of chicken wings; sliders done with classic cheeseburger, meatball parm, BBQ pulled pork, sausage-n-peppers and spicy buffalo chicken with blue cheese; smoky chipotle bacon mac 'n cheese; slow-roasted baby back ribs; and stone oven baked nachos. 8” Half Back pizzas include; 'Sunday Morning Pie’ topped with two sunny side eggs, bacon, potatoes, onions, peppers, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses; and  Fig Barbecued Chicken pizza covered in caramelized onions, hot cherry peppers and Rizzuto’s fig barbecue sauce; and more!

In addition to featuring televised sports events, Rizzuto’s is also the only Stamford location for World Tavern Poker, America’s #1 poker league. It’s free to play and cardholders can win some great prizes.

We had the chance to meet owner Bill Rizzuto, (no relation to Phil Rizzuto) who explained, "We’re excited to offer our customers an exciting and comfortable place to hang back, bring the family, meet with friends and watch the game while enjoying some great food and drinks, all at a real value."

We loved the many Creative “Game Day Cocktails”, such as 'Spicy Sunday Morning Bloody', Bloody Stella, Mimosa and Sunsplash variety and come with half price refills. 

Here's some of the items we sampled at our Tastemaker's Sampling.
