Italiano at it's best!

Not much to not like here. This is a gem in Ocean View. They do not take reservations. Seating is limited and they do have seating at the bar. You have to have all of your party there to be seated. Tried several dishes including their pizza. Portions are ample and prices are good.

The beet salad and egg plant were out of this world. Service was attentive and responsive. Blair did a fabulous job and we will be back. VERY GOOD!

Have been here twice. Good italian food in a popular, trendy (noisy on a Sat) neighborhood setting. Food portions are very large, and delicious. Service is friendly, but quite slow when busy, not enough waiters, it appears. (2 hours for 3 courses.) Still worth a visit, as one of the most interesting places in the area!

Razzo was my sister-in-laws choice for her birthday dinner. I'm not a big fan of Italian food but I did enjoy my white lasagna. The portions are big and they will bring an extra plate for sharing. You have to get there early if you don't want to wait to be seated. It is a small place that fills up... More

Went here as highly rated by trip advisor but our experience did not live up to it. Interesting Italian food. Had simple pasta/white sauce/clams were chewy. Friend of SSider had eggplant, very good. What turned us off was mixup with order that resulted in long wait. Waitress thought we ordered a "fennel appetizer", (who would order that??), a little fennel... More

Great appetizer selection, as well as pastas and mains. We loved just about everything we tried. The proscuitto wraped asparagus stuffed with goat cheese, the chicken parmesean, and penne alla vodka sauce. The pizza was good, but a bit heavy on the cheese for our tastes. The setting is just a place to sit, nothign special, but that was not... More

We had a wonderful meal here on a Sunday night. Outstanding food, service was very attentive. If I had to say one thing bad it would be that the large table celebrating a birthday was really loud and this place it so tiny that the acoustics make everything loud. We still had a wonderful meal and will definitely go back... More

When you come from South Philly and you are used to some of the best Italian food in the country it's hard to rate this place better then average. The service was very good, and we enjoyed our meals but it's just not on par to what we are used to. It's a nice small town Italian restaurant.

My husband and I had dinner with friends here for their 30th wedding anniversary dinner. They said the veal was the best they had ever eaten. My husband and I ate there once before. I thought the stuffed eggplant was fantastic! The service and the ambiance was so special. This will be a regular place for us to visit. You... More

If your perception of great Italian food is Olive Garden. Stop and leave now...please. If however, you are a foody on a quest for real, wonderful, authentic Italian cuisine, read on...please.
