PizzeRizzo: Eating Lunch With The Rats In The Muppet Courtyard – Full Review

323

The zany fun filled world of the Muppets has been delighting us for many years and Disney’s Hollywood Studios has captured that magic with the Muppet’s Courtyard area.  Muppet Vision 3D is always a fan favorite along with getting your picture in front of Miss Piggie’s fountain, but if you’re hungry…you need to go eat with the rats.

PizzeRizzo

PizzeRizzo is run by Rizzo the Rat and his family.  They serve authentic Italian style meals, just like you would find in New York City.  Get a personal pizza or maybe a meatball sub, just be sure to leave some room for dessert.

I recently had the chance to visit Rizzo and his bunch for a quick lunch.  He was able to share some of his favorite food options with me.

I personally decided to go with the meatball sub.  The pizza’s seemed similar to most quick service pies that you will find on Disney property.  The antipasto salad looked pretty delicious, but I was in the mood for something hearty and filling.  The meatball sub won in that category.

Meatball Sub

The restaurant is done up just like a New York City style joint.  The best part is the wedding ballroom.  It it classy and classless all at the same time.  There is some really nice outdoor and balcony seating available, so I chose to enjoy the beautiful day out on the patio.

The meatball sub was filled with three good size meatballs, some authentic Italian red sauce and was smothered in mozzarella and parmigiana cheese.  The roll was toasted nicely and held everything in with each bite.  Overall, I thought it was pretty tasty.  It didn’t whisk me away to Italy in any sense, but it did make me feel like I was getting something authentic to New York City.  I could only eat about half the sub, it was very filling.  Each meal comes with a Caesar side salad that was tasty as well.

I would give PizzeRizzo a thumbs up if you want to enjoy a quick and fun lunch.  Getting a chance to enjoy the Muppets in any way always makes for a wildly crazy experience.
