The Go To Italian Restaurant!
This restaurant never fails to provide a great dining experience. The food is top notch and always distinguishes itself through fresh ingredients prepared perfectly. The arugula salad is a treat with a wonderful balsamic dressing. The calamari is tender and flavorful. The Penne Caprese has the most incredible tomato sauce ever. My wife eats Gluten free and they accommodate with delicious gluten free versions of their pizzas and pasta.

Stuzzy is not a very large
Stuzzy is not a very large restaurant and can get very busy on most nights. I was grateful to be able to reserve a table for my business party of 10.

The pizza was fantastic! Perfectly
The pizza was fantastic! Perfectly baked in a wood oven with ultra fresh toppings..delicious! The service was only so-so, but not bad enough to keep me away from that pizza! Yum!

We asked to be seated outside
We asked to be seated outside and they set up a "makeshift" table for us which was perfectly fine, except our server didn't seem very excited about it . That would be my only complaint was our server, she never checked on us , I got up to get my own straws and napkin and had to ask someone else for sugar for my espresso . The food was absolutely delicious, and the owner definitely
Keeps the place feeling welcoming to all guests , felt like a little Italy NYC restaurant. We will be back to try the pizza next time (highly recommend the rigatoni vodka)

One of our sweet spots
We walk here from our house and the food is fantastic, the vibe cool (but noisy), and the owner friendly. This time we had a new young waitress who had not been trained -- knew nothing of wine service, or table bussing. The pizza oven was running behind the kitchen and one entree came out far later than the others.
This place is casual and these little blips happen, but the food and friendliness make it worth while. We also like eating at the bar.

We shared Grandmas Sunday
We shared Grandmas Sunday rigatoni and Veal Lemoncillo. They were both fantastic! They were both specials and I hope that they are the specials all of the time because they were amazingly special!

A favorite when visiting from NJ
Stuzzi is one of our favorite casual restaurants to go to when we visit Richmond. Each time we've dined there the food has been delicious and there have always been great specials to try. And the pizza - actually comparable to NYC pizza! The pricing is also reasonable for the amount of food provided. Can't wait to go back again soon!

I had another very consistent meal at Stuzzi. The pizzas are delicious, and are my favorite thing to order. The salads are large, fresh and very tasty. The mozarella is made fresh, in-house and has a great flavor. Every time I have been to Stuzzi's I have enjoyed my meal. The thing that keeps me from going back more frequently is the noise level which is VERY high, and the inconsistent service. Overall, though, the pizzas keep me going back....you just can't beat the crust.

As usual, food was fantastic. The arancini was fabulous and a must get when there. It was unfortunate that I was charged $1.00 for a side of marinara for them when I asked. The amount is is so insiginificant it seems almost insulting to charge a dollar for the side. It was also unfortunate that if you want some bread for dipping the sauce from your meal (ordered the Ravioli - yum) you need to order an appetizer to get bread. The dessert (Halzelnut Calzone and Profiteroles) are incredible.

Good variety for sharing!
The waiter was great and the food was very good...especially for sharing with a group. Just a little disappointed w/ the nutella calzone. It was huge but the advertised banana was just banana pudding. Maybe I just misread the description!

delicious pizza and great staff
Stuzzi has great and beautifully prepared pizza if you like thin crust that is not oily which we do. The menu has lots of options even if you do not want pizza, The wait staff is terrific and eager to please. The place is small and cute but not elegant. It is a great place to meet friends and have a really good meal.

Try something new it's all good!
We came in for the pizza, we ended up ordering three different and extremely delicious Pasta dishes.

Everything was AMAZING!!!! This is our new special occasion restaurant!!!

We'd go back
We had a very good experience at Stuzzi's. My husband has celiac and thinks their gluten free pizza is the best he's had anywhere. The other three in our group enjoyed their meals as well. Service was quick and our water glasses were never empty. We are all looking forward to going again.

As always, great pizza and
As always, great pizza and a reasonably prices wine list. Music can get a little loud, but the authentic Italian pizza makes it worth it.

Easy-going atmosphere, helpful service, amazing food - try the carbonara, wow! Great for a laid back date night with husband.

Great food and great service.
Great food and great service. My only negative is that the music was a little loud and made communication difficult with the whole table. We will definitely go there again and recommend it to friends.

Fantastic food and service.
Fantastic food and service. The night we went also had an affordable special ($25 per person) for a selection of appetizers, pizzas, pasta and wine. I have had a great experience each of the past four times I have gone to Stuzzi. Highly recommended

Best pizza in Richmond. New York style. Nice people working there. We go when we can.

Service and food were great but the NOISE level is unbearable. Luckily we were offered a table outside.

Georgia meets Virginia!
We had a wonderful time @ Stuzzi! We had guests from Georgia come to town here in Richmond, VA and they loved every minute of the experience! The food was excellent and the wait staff was very attentive. We think that our guests will remember what a grand time we all had together!

Great Food & Vibe. Small entrees
Quality of food was fantastic. Service was great. Friendly atmosphere for families or would be equally good for date night. Portion size is very much on the small side. Great neighborhood dining location.
I had chicken saltimbocca with a side of rigatoni pasta topped with bolognese sauce. Very thin and small chicken cutlets and only about 10 rigatoni pastas shells placed in the middle of the dish for $15. Another in our party got the veal parm with spaghetti. Equally small portion.
Everything was cooked to perfection. Fresh ingredients. Very high quality Italian food. Left hungry however. Suggest a pizza for everyone to share if you are getting entrees. Will certainly do this the next time as we intend to be back.

Pizza is the best I ever had!
The pizza is cooked in a 1000 degree oven and cooks on 60 seconds. The crust is light amd airy and the toppings are fresh and delicipus. The pizza with sausage and fresh basil is amazing!
We had other entrees and appetizers, but the true stand out was the pizza. If I were rating this restaurant soley on the pizza, it would get a 5 +.

We loved the food. We were craving real Italian pizza and that's what we got! It was a bit pricey though... The service was mediocre. The gal didn't seem to know the menu really well, but she was otherwise pleasant. Atmosphere was just was we were looking for too... Lively but intimate and cozy.

A Taste of Napoli
We have lived in the Richmond area since 1996 and finally found a restaurant that cooked like what we were used to in Naples. The whole scene reminds me of many of the family run Trattoria's where we ate in Naples. The portions are very generous, the pasta cooked "al dente" and the Veal Marsala was the best I'd had in a very long time. I'd definitely recommend the Pasta Fazool for someone who wants a hearty soup. And, if I would have closed my eyes while eating the pizza, I would have thought I was in Naples! The waiter was friendly and checked back often to cater to our needs. Overall, a great dining experience.

I took my friend to Stuzzi for the first time before a lecture at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. We each ordered a personal pizza. The pizza was delicious! We could have easily split one pizza, but there was enough pizza left over for another dinner. It was wonderful to walk from Stuzzi to the VMFA in the lovely Fan district of Richmond.
