We had dinner here for the first time after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor. It’s located in a strip mall off US31 and has more modern decor than typical Italian: high ceilings, white tablecloth, simple, tasteful furnishings. We arrived before 6 on a Monday and were seated at a quiet booth. Our server was friendly and efficient, but our three... More

We are always happy with the great food & changing specials at J. Razzo's. The small dining room can seat 50 or so for private events & the bar area is small for an intimate drink & appetizers. We were happy they lasted due to loyal customers during the now completed road construction. Easiest access is from Pennsylvania street &... More

J. Razzo's serves a great variety of Italian cooking in a lovely, homely setting. The service is always friendly and helpful, and unpretentious. The pastas and other dishes are very reasonably priced. It's a wonderful neighborhood restaurant where we often bump into friends; that's a bonus !! We find it to be a delightful "night out", very tasty, and very... More

This is a white table cloth restaurant, with great food, and absolutely delicious breadsticks, like none other you've had. The chicken dishes are to die for, and the service is usually perfect.

Razzo's is in a strip mall with a modern and comfortable atmosphere. It's not the old school Italian family atmosphere restaurant, but very good. Service was excellent. Menu is pretty typical for Italian restaurants with many choices. The veal marsala meat was a little tough; but the sauce was loaded with mushrooms and was excellent. House salad dressing was very...

Everything we had on the menu was great, but a couple of must haves are the arancini, Chicken Veneto, the Raviolo special, and a must have that you need to order as a starter and for dessert are the ricotta beignets--they are to die for!

Razzos is one of our regulars for great food, wine and atmosphere. The owner,John, takes such pride in his restaurant and every patron is treated as a special guest. Definitely recommend. Oh, and try the calamari.
