My daughter's wedding at Rizzo's on 8/18/18 was the most beautiful, heart-warming day of our lives!!The outdoor Pergola setting was amazing on a beautiful sun shined day!! Rizzi and his staff went above and beyond to make this day a fairy tale wedding! Our guests were amazed at the food, antipasto display, cookie display, attentiveness of every staff member and nothing was left to do but enjoy this day!! The reception hall was breathtaking..Thanks to Lynn, the wedding coordinator and Rizzi and Jerry and their entire staff of workers for everything they did and they worked with us from day one to make sure we were happy!!! Grazie! Grazie! Grazie!!

I typically don't write reviews, but for this venue, I simply have to. From the initial meeting (with Lynn - event coordinator) to the day of and after the wedding (June 23, 2018), I cannot say enough about the professional-attentive-outstanding staff, gorgeous landscaping, beautiful hall, and of course - the mouthwatering food. Lynn (talk about service) worked with my son and his fiancé to help create the wedding of their dreams. The grounds on the property are absolutely breathtaking for an outdoor wedding on their pergola (and a "Plan B" is in-place in the event the ceremony has to be moved indoors due to weather). There was also plenty of parking for our guests. We stumbled upon this wedding oasis in Crabtree (Greensburg area) and cannot be more thankful we did. Lynn, you are quite the coordinator - we cannot THANK you enough from the bottom of our hearts for an amazing ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for our guests! You went over and above what was expected - when all was said and done, we felt like part of the Rizzo Family! The only recommendation I would make is that Rizzo's may want to consider building a hotel (or maybe a B&B for the bridal party) on their property; I know for our wedding alone, we booked 35 rooms (many for 2 nights). Rizzo's could offer on-site accommodations, guests wouldn't have to drive, and the couple wouldn't have to provide transportation ... sounds like a win...win...win to me! Thanks again Rizzo's Malabar Inn - truly a wedding oasis in Crabtree!
