Friday Food Critic: Rizzo's Bar and Grill

Each week, we nominate a new restaurant for you to review. That's right, you're the local expert.

When it comes to restaurants,  has it covered.

We have some great local places that many would consider community gems; we have some restaurants that aren't exactly mom-and-pop but are unique to the area; and we certainly—for better or for worse—have plenty of chains lining our main streets.

But what we don't have is a consistent food critic to tell us what's good and what's not. 

That's where you come in.

We could throw some money at a professional food critic, but that's not exactly what Patch is all about. We'd much rather know the opinion of the fine folks that eat there day-in and day-out.

It's your community. You eat the food. You tell us if it passes the mark.

That's why we are introducing  column, where each week we will put a different restaurant on the chopping block. You tell us how you feel about it, what dishes are good, who has the best drink specials and so forth.

This week's restaurant is , located at 1155 Wentzville Parkway.

Patch reader AmLy reviewed Rizzo's and this is what she said:

We've never been UN-happy at Rizzo's. We first fell in love with the pizza, as most people do then found a couple pastas and traditional Italian dishes that are great too! We really enjoy the non-corporate- local atmosphere and look forward to our upcoming wedding reception dinner there this year!

To add your review of , simply click on their name (or on ). You'll be directed toward their community listing in our places directory, where you can rate them on a five-star system or write a personal review.

At Wentzville Patch, we believe your words of wisdom are better than any food critic.

What are you waiting for? Let the reviewing begin!

Rizzo's is a great change from all the chain restaurants in wentzville with great food and friendly service! The wings are HUGE and delicious, love the house salad, and the pizza is the best in town! My other favorite is the Tipped off burger which is cooked to perfection and topped with sautéed mushrooms and a creamy cheese sauce. They also do a wonderful job catering as I had them do our office Christmas party last year and received rave reviews from the most difficult critics! The bar area has a nice hometown feel where you are sure to find someone you know. The employees and owners really get to know you and make you feel like part of the family.

We love Rizzos!!! They have such a great variety to choose from. If you want chicken- Chicken Modiga is excellent. Craving a steak, the filet or steak Anthony just melts in your mouth! Can't ever go wrong with that pasta or pizza!!! If salad is more your style - the honey mustard chicken salad is wonderful! The servers are very friendly and always make sure you are enjoying your meal! Great happy hour drink and food specials in the bar too!!! You can tell this is a family owned establishment as they take great pride in their restaurant!!
