PizzeRizzo, the new quick service Muppets-themed restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is getting ready for their grand opening tomorrow, November 18, 2016. They opened today for 2 hours, just to get a feel for things with a small soft opening.
The restaurant is themed like Rizzo the rat and his family have owned the two-story space for years. Upstairs, Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall is set up like a wedding reception is already in progress, complete with disco ball for dancing.
Pizzas are personal-sized and include vegetable, pepperoni, meat lovers, and cheese. Also on the menu are Meatball subs, Antipasto Salad (Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, mozzarella, kalamata olives, ham, pepperoni, salami, and balsamic vinaigrette), and a Caesar salad for a side dish.
Kids have a choice of cheese pizza, mini chicken sub, or a “Power Pack”, which consists of yogurt, apple slices, carrots, goldfish crackers, apple-cinnamon snack bar, and milk or water.
Desserts are traditional Italian sweets, like cannoli and tiramisu. Guests can indulge in a non-alcoholic Peach Bellini, Wildberry-Basil Lemonade Limoncella, and wine and beer is available for adults.
Though the menu remains similar to Pizza Planet, who previously occupied the space, the interior has been redesigned.
An outdoor seating area has been added on the second level.
My favorite part of the decor happens at night! Check out these photos to see what happens when the restaurant’s neon sign flashes:
