I had never heard of this restaurant and did not know anyone who had eaten here. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised! The menu has a bunch of options for everyone and is not limited to traditional Italian. Very cozy and decent service. We will return!

My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch that was truly a bargain. The lunch special fish entree was salmon which neither of us like, so our server substituted mahi-mahi instead. It was a huge portion, beautifully cooked in a lemon sauce, served over pasta. I also had a very crisp house salad, with nice big croutons. With the hot, fresh signature breadsticks, neither of us could even begin to finish our entrees! Including a beverage, each of our checks were $7.95 - unbelievable! Delicious, fresh, and perfectly prepared - what more can one ask? We love J. Razzo's!

Enjoyed the food! Appetizers were quite scrumptious! Bacon wrapped stuffed dates were out of this world as were the olives! Our entrées arrived soon after and were hot and very tasty. Portions were large enough to take home a bit. Service was super and our booth was quiet and clean. Just five stars from me!

My friends and I enjoyed another wonderful lunch at J. Razzo's. We asked for a quiet booth, so we could enjoy our conversation, although the entire restaurant has an ambiance conducive for conversation. The Caesar salad was perfect to start. Two of us enjoyed the delicious Chicken Veneto, which is always my favorite. Our other friend loved her Chicken Marsala. The lunch portions were very generous, and because we ate too many of the hot, fluffy, fresh breadsticks, we each took half of our lunch home! The prices are extremely reasonable, and everything is freshly made to order. This is one of my favorite restaurants and never disappoints!

My wife made the reservation for my birthday more than a month ago....and requested
a booth for us....we were seated in what can only be called a banquet room at the back of the restaurant....by the restrooms....at a table....

The hostess did not say a word to us....no follow me please, welcome, nothing...strange..

Drinks were good; food was so- so at best...don't plan on returning...

We enjoyed another excellent meal at J. Razzo's of two outstanding pastas, the baked rigatoni and shrimp a la vodka, both rich and delicious. The freshly-baked hot breaksticks are always perfect while waiting for our food, and the wine selections are very good. We are always too full for dessert, but I'm sure that they are outstanding as well. J. Razzo's is a favorite go-to choice.

This was actually our second visit. Our first being only a few weeks ago. Our son and girlfriend came home from Purdue and our daughter and husband were available so we made it a night. The appetizers are great, get the cheese sticks! Everyone tried something different to drink from bottles of wine to signature cocktails to craft beers and all was awesome. The food is authentic. I can't believe we lived her for 16 years and never ate here. We've been twice in a month. They do have private little booths as well and is exactly where my wife and I ate the first time. We're coming back, count on it.

We were very impressed with the ambiance and thoroughly enjoyed our apps (Risotto balls). The bread was also a serious highlight. Our server was very pleasant and even promptly filled an impromptu order for our three year old son.

The entrees portions were very generous (chicken parm, pollo pepperoni and bambino spaghetti). However there was a bit too much breading on the chicken parm. The flavors for the pollo pepperoni didn’t make a impact. Our server didn’t come around too often after initially taking our orders. I’d dine here again to check out their other dishes as there was a nice selection.

Of four in our party, only two thought the food was great. For one of the others, his salmon was dry and over cooked and the asparagus was undercooked. For the other, the eggplant was mediocre. Perhaps pre-prepared and heated up. We should have ordered what our friends did: great lasagna and very good chicken parmesan.

Went to J. Razzo's for Valentine's Day, table was immediately available. Food was delicious, waiter was attentive. I have a feeling if I had asked for special requests they'd have been more than willing to accommodate.

My only wish is that we hadn't forgotten our leftover lasagna!

If you’re looking for authentic Italian food at a fair price, give J. Razzo’s the opportunity to serve you. The restaurant offers a nice wine selection and the service is excellent. We’ve had dinner here several times and always enjoyed our dining experience.

Save your money or spend it somewhere else. Service was fine but not exceptional. Food was incredibly bland. My wife had veal parmesan, beet salad, and ice cream. I had risotto balls, walleye, and tiramisu. Risotto balls were tolerable and ice cream was good (but who screws up ice cream?), but everything else was disappointing. I don’t like putting restaurants on blast but I would hate for someone spend $90 (with tip) on dinner and get the result we got.

Good food, excellent and friendly service, and they have REAL spumoni ice cream. A bit hard to find, however, if you are not used to Carmel, so check out your route if driving there.

We went during devour Indy. The service and appetizers were great.. but the veal Parmesan was paperthin and when I pointed it out to the waiter, he became defensive and our service changed from good to essentially non existent. He actually said, ' I didn't cook it', and threw our check on the table as he passed by... very disappointed in this, as I wasn't blaming him for the quality of food, just pointing it out. Better options out there.
