Italian
Naples is the birthplace of pizza, and Neapolitan pizza captures the pure essence of this simple and delicious Italian food. True Neopolitan pizza (or D.O.C. pizza, which stands for 'Denominazione di Origine Controllata') is so pure, there are only a handful of restaurants in the US to make it! Stuzzi creates that authentic product. Our wood fired oven was hand built, on site, to exacting standards. The oven's unique "beehive" design allows the temperature to be maintained at a blistering 1000+ degrees Fahrenheit -- hot enough to turn raw dough, tomatoes, cheese and basil into a blistering bubbling pizza in about sixty seconds.

    I made a reservation, only to arrive and see a sign on the door saying Stuzzi was closed for vacation. Very disappointing. We love the food at this restaurant, but have been disappointed time and time again by service, cleanliness, and now arriving for a reservation to see a closed sign. Doubtful we'll give Stuzzi another chance.

    Ordered gluten free pizza (allergy) and 20 minutes later was told that they didn't have any that day. SO it delayed everyone's meal. I ordered gluten free pasta with vodka sauce. I was assured there was no flour in the sauce. after being in the restaurant a full hour, dinners arrived and the sauce was so thick that if there wasn't flour it was like eating the sludge at the bottom of the pot from the day before. The waitress seemed very new and didn't want to go back to the boss with problems or complaints. I didn't eat the meal - but she was more than happy to charge me for it. I thought I was finding a new Gluten free pizza option - but clearly it was a bust on all accounts. Never again.

    The food and service were excellent! He raviolis were fresh made and the pizza was delicious! I wanted to give the restaurant the highest rating! But the ambiance needs work. And the place needs a really good cleaning. And maybe dishes that aren't chipped. Bring in a decorator, maybe a woman's touch, and people will be lined up at the door.

    We were seated a few minutes after arriving at Stuzzi, but waited 15 minutes before our server brought menus or took drink orders. It then took about 10 minutes to get water, another 10 minutes to get my husband's glass of wine, and another 30 minutes to get my glass of wine. It seemed like the other tables around us, including a large party of 8 that arrived after we did, got served long before we did. When we finally got our food, the eggplant parmesan was very salty but the pizza was ok.

    Very disappointing, poor service at the bar, dirty wine glass, waited 30 minutes past our reservation time, although they were seating others. We were waiting at the bar. They must have forgotten us, but we finally got our table after asking twice. Service was very slow, food order incorrect, and when the food did arrive we still had no silverware, napkins or plates. Not sure we will return here.

    our family has been Stuzzi many times. while the service has always been just fair, we came for the pizza and pasta. this time, the service was terrible (long time to get service, food served without small plates or silverware). And the margherita pizza was missing flavor (no basil), the foccacia was super salty and the broccolini was limp. clearly they had plenty of customers. I am disappointed that they don't the edge they had a few years ago. fortunately we have alot of good pizza choices in RVA

    Every other place was slammed so we decided to give Stuzzi another try, hoping not to get a repeat of a way-too-soggy-in-the-middle pizza like we did last time. We were not successful. Service was not attentive, bare minimum kind of thing. :-(

    This was my first visit here. I ordered a personal pizza and it was just fabulous. I also tried the fried Mozzarella and it was very light and delicious. My friend had a salad and said it was awesome. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful.

    We have eaten here multiple times over the years. The pizza is solid. We decided to go with caprese and order a calzone. When the caprese came out - we thought it was a a bit of joke. There were 2 slices of tomato and 2 slices of mozzarella. We have come before and it was 4 of each. So we were a bit disappointed. The calzone was good - but a bit unique. It was literally a pizza folded in half with some ricotta cheese in there. Not thick like a normal calzone, but it was good. We weren't too impressed overall with this meal, but, when we come back - we just stick to pizza.

    Our first visit to Stuzzi’s — Arrancini rice balls were as delicious as those we had in Rome, as was the pizza and cannolis. Between watching the pizza dough being tossed, and the taste of the food and wine, we felt like we were back in Italy! Will be returning soon!

    Great food, very authentically Italian. Wood fired pizza like you would get in Italy and perfect Cannoli. But they'd almost run out of wine and didn't have Italian coffee :(
