There are many fine restaurants in Norfolk, Virginia and one of them is somewhat off the beaten path. So, head to Ocean View, the Avenue along the Bay and stop for a nice southern Italian meal. The wine selection is more than adequate and our favorite appetizer is the roasted garlic plate. A large pizza is plenty for four and... More

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the Tidewater area. Their chicken parm is the best. Only thing I don't like is that if you want pasta with it you have to order it separately. The wait staff is friendly and check on you often. The food is delicious. It is small with only 7 booths and 6... More

Ordered Greek salad. It was not cold and very disappointing with mostly just lettuce. Also had the baked fennel which was ok but was disappointed in serving size.

Got there at 5:30 and got the last table. There was a line out the door when we left. The food is tasty, the portions are huge, and the décor is quite pleasant. This is the place!

My wife and I stopped by for dinner on our way through town. The service was great and the atmosphere was laid back. Walking in to see one of Norfolk's Finest enjoying a meal there was a great sign. The meal started with an order of the "Roasted Garlic" appetizer which also included olives, goat cheese, roasted peppers and sun-dried... More

Having lived near. We took another couple for what was to be a night of pasta. Waited more than 45 minutes. After order was placed, one order did not have what was ordered. Placed concern with manager about the service and missing ingreadents to which the manager would delete a portion oi the bill. When the bill arrived,after some time... More

It is a small restaurant , so have reservations or be prepared to wait at the bar, which is an ok option also!!! The service was great. Very attentive. Good recommendation of wine. The... More

Italian Restaurant, small seating capacity so it fills up. Food is always great, and usually enough for leftovers. Pasta is homemade. Wait staff are friendly and attentive.

My family (half Italian) decided to have dinner at Razzo. We order the lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo, tuna grill, sausage and roasted peppers. Starting with lasagna - the presentation was horrible, looking like a pile of cow poop with a ton of marinara sauce in top, the sauce was uneatable (sour as it was made with rotten tomatoes and very salty),...

Good food, good service and a pleasant environment, if a bit dim lighting wise. Would certainly recommend giving it a try. They do not do bookings so be prepared to wait if you want a table, it will be worth it.

Thank Hugh B
