From the street, it may look like no one's inside, but don't be fooled. Even on a Tuesday night when we decided to give it a try, the place was full of satisfied diners. The staff were very friendly, the decor was pleasantly modern, and the food was good. We'd go there again.

By the looks of it reminds me of one of the buildings in the Fan in Richmond. We were recommended this restaurant by our daughter and a former waitress. We were cordially greeted at the door and received excellent service from our waitress. My husband ordered Italian sausage and spaghetti and I ordered eggplant parmesan. We were not disappointed.

We were passing through Norfolk on our way to OBX and after looking at the review on trip advisor we decided to try Razzo's for dinner. The outside doesn't look like much, but don't be fooled the food was delicious. I had the stuffed eggplant and my husband had veal parm and we really enjoyed the meal. The place is... More

Razzo’s was a pleasant surprise. It has a small dining room and looks a little “worn down” from the outside, but looks are deceiving in this case. Our dinner was absolutely delicious! The roasted garlic appetizer was generously portioned and offered a wonderful variety of tomatoes and peppers and tangy goat cheese. The Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp was scrumptious. The... More

We had dinner and we got the barbecue shrimp that was excellent, the veg lazagna and the papardelle with shrimp. Both dishes were good but they smothered in sauce. Overall good, but could have been great!

We were in Norfolk for one night before hitting the bridge for Chesapeake area. I read the reviews and decided to try this place. At first we thought we had made a mistake. The menu is NOT adventurous at all. Like every Italian restaurant you have ever been in. Lasagne, meatball subs, pasta with Bolognese sauce, you know the drill.... More

Razzo is a small restaurant with a loyal clientele made up mostly of people who live in the Ocean View area of Norfolk. Having been warned that the restaurant can fill up quickly, we got there at 5:00 pm. Within 30 minutes the dining area and the bar had almost no seating left. The food style is like home cooking...

Staying at the Norfolk Airport we were looking for a good place to eat without going into downtown Norfolk. Happened upon Razzo, which is about five miles away from airport area. Absolutely great! This is a small location with approximately 15 -20 tables, so get there early. Service was outstanding. Wine list was reasonable despite not offering a great selection.... More

We went here on a Saturday night for my husband's birthday... the place is a bit small, but very quaint. We waited a long while for our food to be served but once we got it, it was well worth the wait. I got the white lasagna, my husband got the crab cake topped with a filet, and for dessert... More
