Southern Inspired Cuisine



Rizzo’s by Michael Patrick is located in the Historic South Main Arts District.

Rizzo’s opened its doors to much acclaim in October 2011, beginning with a quaint 8-table, 32-seat dining room. Under Chef Michael’s leadership, Rizzo’s has grown into the larger location you sit in now.

Award-winning designer Ann Parker collaborated with us to design a space that celebrated the rustic brick and morter look of the Historic South Main Arts District with splashes of green to highlight our personality. The artwork you see hanging throughout the restaurant is for sale. We proudly showcase Local Artists(inquire within for details).
