When I was at Disney’s Hollywood Studios earlier this month it looked like PizzeRizzo was almost ready to open. It appears that I was right as Disney has announced that on November 18th the restaurant will formally open its doors!


Love the reference here in the sign to Pizza Planet

Obviously pizza is going to be the staple food here with entrees being served with a side caesar salad. Pizza toppings will include pepperoni, meat lovers and cheese, meatball sub and vegetable.

Other options will include an Antipasto salad which includes lettuce, tomatoes, olives, ham, pepperoni, salami and mozzarella.

Traditional Italian desserts make their way onto the menu with cannoli and one of my favourite desserts, tiramisu.

Of course with Rizzo the Rat and his family behind the restaurant, the decor is going to be inspired by them and will feature photos of the guests who have visited the restaurant over the years. Upstairs you will find Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall where a wedding reception is midway through and guests can join the dance floor to show off their best dance moves.

I am pretty excited by PizzeRizzo, Pizza Planet was one of the worst Quick Service locations on property and I am pleased to see Disney replace it with a Muppety themed restaurant with an improved menu.
