THE SUCCESS OF RIZZO’S RESTAURANT IN WINDBER IS A TWO – FAMILY STORY
In 1924, Celestine and Mary A. Rillo, who had immigrated in the early 1900’s from
the Northern Central region of Italy, built their home at 2200 Graham Avenue. The Rillo’s lived on
the second floor and operated a general store and meat market on the first floor.
In 1937, the Rillo’s decided to open a restaurant
at the location. At that time, Windber was a coal mining center of activity where Rillo’s “Fairway
Café” enjoyed a successful start. Our industrious Grandma Rillo was in charge of the kitchen
where tasteful and authentic Italian foods were prepared from old world recipes.
Please get in touch and let us know what you think of this site and our restaurant. We're always looking for ways to improve our service and offerings.
