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.

I was in Norfolk visiting friends and went here on a Tuesday night. There was only one table available- which says a lot about the place. The food was quite good- we ordered zucchini ribbons as an appetizer to share. It was grilled with olive oil, a hint of garlic and pine nuts. It was delicious. For entrees, we ordered... More

Cozy restaurant with great food. Italian bread is fantastic as is the calamari. The two sauces served with it are good as is just plain lemon. Penne a la vodka is great; I had shrimp added and they were big and cooked perfectly.

Arrived for a late dinner on a Friday evening. The service was friendly and fast. The Veal Marsala was excellent and served with a side pasta. Their bread is so good that we were all still eating it after finishing our meals. It's a small, quiet and friendly place with awesome service and food.

This well kept secret is hiding out in an area of Norfolk that is being brought back to life. Its unassuming façade may be totally missed since it doesn't look like much from the outside. Indoors, it is a cozy, bustling spot with several tables and booths. We didn't have a reservation on a Friday night, but managed to snag... More

We decided to try Razzo for the first time for an early Valentine's Day dinner. Both the food and service were reasonably good, but not necessarily what would make us want to travel 30 miles again to come back. We both had the house salad with vinaigrette dressing. The salads were fairly ordinary. Our meals (Linguini w/clam sauce and Rigatoni... More

While travelling we like to find hidden gems, we sure hit the jackpot @ Razzo! The White Lasagna was delicious, waitress was pleasent, and food was brought out in a timely manner. If you like Italian it's a must try.
