What a surprise!

This place was quite unassuming from the outside, and more of the same inside. But we really enjoyed the food, and the wait staff didn't miss a beat. We will return.

When we arrived at this restaurant there was a line to be seated at tables. The place is quite small and in need of a facelift. We decided we would sit at the bar since it looked like our best chances to eat. We were in line for approximately 30 minutes when seats at the bar became available for us.... More

My wife and I enjoyed Razzo shortly after it opened several years ago and decided to try it again for her birthday last night, along with our adult son. Razzo doesn't take reservations, so we were there when the door opened at 5:00 PM. The place is small and was packed before 6 o'clock. We were all pleased sharing appetizers... More

We were staying at the Quality Suite near the airport as we had a 6 a.m. international flight. We made the trip to Razzo's and are glad we did. We drove by it initially and then were not sure it was open as it didn't look as if any lights were on inside. Parking is not appear readily available and... More

We arrived a few minutes before 5pm they open at 5. They do not take reservations. It fills up very quickly. The portions are large. Great presentation of the dishes. Great salad selections easily shared. The veal francese with lemon and capers was delicious selected by three of us. The Tuna Minion was beautifully prepared wrapped in Bacon. The prices... More

We've eaten at Razzo several times, usually as a couple but we took my parents when they came to visit. The meal is always delicious. It can get loud as it's a small place and you might have to wait to be seated, but well worth it, I assure you.

I confess, I am an Italian food snob. The food here was the one of the BEST meals I have ever eaten. From the app to the entree to the dessert...absolutely perfectly prepared and seasoned. The restaurant is very small and the wait was a little long, but it was totally worth it. Service was very good- prompt, attentive and... More

My husband and I have been to Razzo (the name is a nod to ' the Rocket' roller coaster that once trilled many in Ocean View) three or four times in the past couple of years. We would go more often because it is in our backyard and the food is great; however, the restaurant is very small and if... More
