Most Gracious Host
Critics, upstate: “This is not a restaurant,” Marco Rizzo says. “This is my home.” Guests at Ristorante Marco certainly feel at home, thanks to the warm, cozy atmosphere and their host’s personality—friendly, full of life and Italian all the way. Rizzo thinks of customers as his friends, he’s always quick with a wine recommendation for veal scaloppine, and he’s even absorbed customers’ family recipes into his menu. “I feel like part of their families,” he says. “I even get invited to weddings.” Rizzo, who is from Italy, still visits his home country every year, then brings back the latest in wine and food trends. He’s built such a loyal following, in June he opened a second restaurant, this time in Greenville. (1847 Pulaski Hwy., Bear, 392-2244; 3801 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, 254-5427)
