The best Italian food I have had in a long time. Service was excellent. I highly recommend the penne a la vodka with sausage...it was the bomb!

A surprise in an old building on a reasonably busy street. It is not on the beach and has no view, but offers good, honest Italian fare efficiently and with a smile. Obviously the locals know because parking is overflowing to the pizza place opposite. In this area there is not a lot of choice and the quality offered here... More

We were looking for a new Italian place in Norfolk. We found this place on a tripadvisor.com search. This is a small family style restaurant not a chain. They start you off with really good bread with a good EVOO and balsamic vinegar on the side. Our appetizer of wrapped asparagus and the veal and chicken parm. was great. The... More

I went with the wife, baby and friend. Had a good dinner and good service... nothing out of the ordinary... I would return.... Prices are resonable and the parking lot had space when we arrived...

If you're hungry for pizza or Italian this is THE place. Their best pizza by far,is the margarita pizza.

We live in Chesapeake and drive 13 miles to dine at Razzo every couple of months. It is awesome! The Chicken Marsala is exquisite, but the best part of the meal is the bread. Home baked every day, the bread is to die for. It is the perfect accompaniment for the many delicious entrees. The staff is friendly and professional.... More

Me and my husband stop in Norfolk on our way to OBX. This is the second year we stopped at this restaurant and had a great dinner. The eggplant with artichoke, spinach , mozzarella cheese was delicious . My husband's veal parm was good too. The prices are very reasonable. Don't miss a great meal at this restaurant.

Food quality was nothing special. i ordered a caprese salad with "fresh" mozzarella, and it was nit a fresh mozzarella that I would expect for "14. To me, it tasted like a Bel Gioso brand mozzarella that is marketed as "fresh" but has a... More

Came to visit our daughter and she took us to Razzo's for dinner. The food was wonderful! The roasted garlic appetizer platter is enough for 4. The chicken parm easily feeds 2, just add the side of pasta. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Thank Judgedee2
