Razzi's

How I heard of this place: The Entertainment Book first introduced me to Romio’s, which is what Razzi’s used to be until recently. I visited the Romio’s in Magnolia, first, then proceeded to try others as coupons multiplied and pizza cravings grew. Razzi’s was discovered when a group of 23 people celebrated the One-eyed, lip curtain food fest on this fine, hilarious evening.

Type of cuisine: Greek- and Italian-inspired cuisine, including salads, pastas, pizza, calzones, gyros, paninis, subs, grinders, as well as an expanding low-carb and gluten-free menu.

Ambiance: The large, spacious interior, maroon carpeted with green-accented floors, a grape-and-leaf trellis making its way across the top outer spaces of the ceiling and windows along two sides, welcomes patrons into the space.

Both table/chair as well as booth seating are available to diners, made up of many individuals, friends and families from throughout the neighborhood, in either the main restaurant space or the private banquet space. Exposed brick walls give the cozy, home feel to a space that boasts family establishment with every turn.

What I ordered: Of the 23 dining at our two tables in the banquet room, I only sampled a few of the entrees ordered, and will, therefore, list only those. One dining companion and I opted to share an appetizer, dinner and a dessert. For starters, we selected the Antipasto Salad (whole: $8.95) with mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, salami, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, mushrooms, black olives, pepperoncini peppers and Gorgonzola cheese, which was served with a homemade Italian dressing. I also tasted a neighboring diners Spinach Salad (half-size: $6.25) with spinach, Roma tomatoes, red onions, toasted walnuts and goat cheese, tossed in a Raspberry balsamic vinaigrette. For the main course, my dining companion and I selected the Razzi’s Calzone ($10.95), a thick pocket filled with pepperoni, savory Italian sausage, mushrooms and black olives, oozing mozzarella and ricotta cheeses and Razzi’s homemade red sauce. Two at our large set of tables ordered the Chicken Fettuccini ($13.95), fettuccini noodles layered with chicken and roasted red peppers in Alfredo sauce. I sampled one. Additionally, we were offered samples of the Real Buffalo Wings (with spicy sauce; half: $7.25, whole: $12.75), “Sticky sweet, spicy or savoury, you’re sure to want more of this finger-lickin’ chicken. Served with Ranch or Blue Cheese dipping sauce“. I also tried a dish that was being passed around, the Spinach Cannelloni ($12.95), Canneloni pasta stuffed with spinach, ricotta, Romano then topped with marinara, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, baked to a gooey, crisp perfection. For dessert, my dining companion and I ordered the 3-Layer Mud Pie ($5.45), with coffee and chocolate infused ice cream on top of a rich Oreo cookie crust, sprinkled with nuts and chocolate. Our dining companion to the left ordered the Deep Dish Lemon Coconut Pie ($5.45), with luscious lemon meringue in two layers of crust, a sweet frosting and flakes of coconut.

On a return visit, 22 July 2015: My family returned for the Greenwood Parade and a little bite to eat, including Razzi’s Famous Chopped Salad ($12 for a whole portion) with diced chicken, salami, lettuce, fresh basil, diced tomatoes, garbanzo beans, scallions, mozzarella and provolone cheese, tossed in house made Cucina Italian dressing,

and a half-half pizza of The Great Greek ($25 for the 15″ pie) with seared Greek gyros meat, red onions, tomatoes, feta and Greek olives smothered with mozzarella & feta cheeses, Tzatziki on the side, and the Kickin’ Chicken with BBQ chicken, red onions, spicy jalapeños, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese with our sizzlin’ BBQ sauce (no pizza sauce).

On a return visit, Monday, 22 February 2016: Out for a family walk, my husband could not return home without a pit stop at Razzi’s. (No wonder our detour went right past it!?!) My husband, in the mood for pasta strayed from our usual pizza order! Which left me to order pasta, too. After our starter salads, our selections

for him, the Chicken Marsala ($18): two tender lightly breaded breasts of chicken sautéed and served with a creamy Marsala wine and mushroom sauce.

For me, the Baked Fettuccine Formaggi ($17): “The Boat of Cheese” with RAZZíS organic fresh fettuccini noodles, Alfredo sauce and meatballs.

What I loved: I loved the salads most of all. The pastas and calzones (and pizzas, as I saw at the far end of our table) were large and well worth sharing.Razzi's

Why I loved it: The huge portions, warm comfort food and company clad in mustaches and eye-patches made this one of the most memorable dining encounters I have ever had in Seattle…or anywhere.

Cost: Average ($9.95 – $15.95 per dinner entree, not including pizzas)
