The neon street sign high above PizzeRizzo.
There are all kinds of entrances into PizzeRizzo, but technically, this is the main "front" entrance.
Awe, an iddy-biddy side Caesar Salad.
All of the adult entrée-sized pizzas and the sub sandwich are served with this side Caesar Salad. No... the larger sized Antipasto Salad doesn't come with a side of pizza.
PizzeRizzo's Vegetable Pizza all by itself.
This is the Vegetable Pizza with the side Caesar Salad that is served with it. All pizza entrées are served with a side salad.
There are only a couple of desserts on the PizzeRizzo menu. This is the Tiramisu, a traditional Italian cream and coffee dessert.
Actually, the Tiramisu seemed to be pretty authentic, for a counter service location that is. Yes, it's mass produced and I'm sure the amount of mascarpone and coffee are pretty thin, but the texture was good and surprisingly, the delicate flavors were well balanced.
The counter-service area itself is very, very large!
Let's hope this is a new trend for Disney counter service locations! Many, counter service ordering and pick-up areas seem too small for the volume of guests that pass through on a daily basis.
I'm sure "all" six registers will only be open during peak dining periods, but at least they have the space! All registers can accommodate ordering on the right and left sides.
Moving closer to the food pick-up area, there are little brass guide rails in place... presumably to keep guests from shifting too far left or right from the register that their meal was purchased at.
Looking at the main entrance doors from across the counter service food-ordering and pick-up area.
It looks like Pepé needed to borrow a dollar. Unfortunately, it was Rizzo's "first dollar", and all that's left is an empty frame!
There is outdoor seating available at PizzeRizzo. Here, we are close to the front door and looking north west down the full length of the seating area. This is the ground floor of a two level seating area.
We're still on the ground floor at PizzeRizzo's outdoor seating area, this time, looking south east.
At the south east end of the ground floor, there are stairs leading to the second floor seating area.
Once up the stairs, the second floor seating area at PizzeRizzo looks a lot like the ground floor... except the view over the balcony is better!
Now we are looking north west on the second level seating area at PizzeRizzo.
The indoor seating areas at PizzeRizzo are all very well designed. The area on the ground level, near the stairs kind of reminds me of a deli. There are black and white period photos hanging on the white wahsed brick wall.
Check out that cool flooring! I do think putting three chairs side-by-side at this table is a little ambitious. There are more comfortable seating areas for large groups (six or larger) up-stairs.
Here's a cute little two top really close to the stairs at PizzeRizzo. The have smartly put up a railing around the back side of the open staircase, keeping guests out of that area.
This table seems like a great option for a large group at PizzeRizzo.
After going up stairs, the decor at PizzeRizzo changes. Note the wood floors throughout most of this area and the open rafters.
There are signs and art hanging on the north west wall (the long side without any windows), most are from various locations in Manhattan (or New York in general).
The open rafters and wood floor give this space a very lofty feel.
With my back to the windows on the second floor, the staircase leading down is on the right, while some cool street signs from New York are hanging on the back wall.
Don't let those "booths" fool you! They may look all comfy, but there's only limited padding on the seat. The "back" of the booth, is plywood.
Taking a closer look at some of the wall art at PizzeRizzo.
There are various pieces that reference Manhattan or New York in general hanging on the walls on the second seating level at PizzeRizzo.
What a cool looking period art piece for New York!
This photo was taken on the second floor of PizzeRizzo. You can see the staircase leading down to the first floor in the center of the photo.
The second level seating area at PizzeRizzo is quite large. Here, we are next to a giant half-circle archway window looking south at the "banquet hall" entrance.
Here's a closer look at the entrance of the Banquet Hall at PizzeRizzo. Anyone can go in there... it's not "really" reserved for a banquet... it's just another one of the themed dining areas at the popular counter service location.
The "Banquet Hall" seating area at PizzeRizzo is on the second floor.
This cool room even has it's own sound track! The music is a bit louder in the Banquet Hall room, but if you like radio pop from the 80's and 90's, this is a great little room!

The themed areas at PizzeRizzo are pretty neat looking. This is a counter-service location that has been designed really well, with tons of room.
Movin' Right Along to the north-most wall on the second level... (see what I did there, with the song title from The Muppet Movie?)... there's various caricatures of Muppets hanging on the back wall.
Here's a closer look at some of the Muppet prints hanging on the second level's southern wall.
Hey, I finally found a print of Rizzo in his early years, delivering pizza on the streets of Manhattan on his skateboard.
Awe, it's Scooter ... on a scooter!
Taking a look acorss the very large second story dining area at PizzeRizzo. The open rafters and wood floors give this whole area a very loft-like feel.
The rooms is mostly accented with green and red... traditional colors for an Italian restaurant I suppose.
The metal chairs may just be a bit more comfortable than the booths. The booth "backs" are not padded... they are solid wood and set at a perfect right angle to the ground.
