Bizzarri began his career Racing Club de Avellaneda in the Argentine League, where his good performances drew attention from La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid, which signed him in 1999. Unsettled and blocked by the emergence of 18-year-old Iker Casillas he battled for second-choice status with Bodo Illgner, being a used player in the club's victorious campaign in the UEFA Champions League.
During the summer of 2000 Bizzarri was transferred to Real Valladolid, eventually becoming first-choice. From 2002 to 2004 he did not miss one single league game, but his team would be relegated from the top flight in the latter season.
In the 2006–07 campaign Bizzarri played for Gimnàstic de Tarragona, in another season that ended in top level demotion. In June 2007 he signed a one-year deal with Italy's Calcio Catania, a link that would be renewed at the end of the season for an equal period.
During 2008–09, Bizzarri became Catania's first-choice under new coach Walter Zenga, after spending most of his first season as a reserve behind Ciro Polito. His performances were consistent throughout the campaign as the Sicily outfit retained its league status, and the player's performances also allowed him to be part of Goal.com's weekly "Serie A Team of the Week" more than any other goalkeeper in the competition.
Despite some stellar performances Bizzarri admitted, towards the end of the season, he would not be renewing his contract with Catania. Following this announcement coach Zenga opted to drop him to the bench, so young Tomáš Košický could gain some top flight experience.
In June 2009 Bizzarri signed for fellow league club S.S. Lazio, on a free transfer. In his first year he backed up another South American, Uruguayan Fernando Muslera, as the Rome outfit barely avoided relegation; he added four appearances in the season's UEFA Europa League, winning two and losing two (seven goals conceded).
