About Stuzzi - Richmond

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.

Excellent food and pizza selection! Every dish was special, and the team takes great pride in the variety and quality of their brick oven pizzas!

This used to be a wonderful place in its prime but we stood at entry for over 5 -7 minutes and were totally ignored. Finally had to stop a server who acted annoyed but finally got seated. Place was dirty and worn - flies all around our table until we moved open condiments. Bathroom for women disgusting and toilet did not work. Food was good but not great but everything from getting a drink to food was slow. When food was served no napkins or plates or utensils had been provided previously. We used to come all the time but had not been there for 2-3 years . Not coming back

The food was just not good. We ordered a lot of different things and ate nothing. Seems more like a college pizza dive. Server was friendly. But not worth a return visit.

We went for a birthday celebration and were greeted at the door by the owner who was extremely friendly and hospitable. We are originally from New Jersey area and every bite reminded of us home. We sampled many items, all of which were delicious, but would highly recommend the gnocchi and pizza.

Way too slow for service. Plus too hot inside. Looked like AC unit was out. Owner checked on us and when we said the wait for food was way long he didn't apologize. Took 30 min for a salad and crostini that didn't require any cooking. Will not be going back.

There was a major bug problem....after we sat down and ordered (we ordered quickly since we were hungry), we noticed that there was an infestation of flies all over the wall behind us...we moved tables, but there were still lots of flies and the floor was very dirty. We were disappointed since the food was very good.

I would not recommend Stuzzi. We had a reservation, and when we arrived were told it was a good thing we wanted to sit outside because there were no inside tables available. So, if we had wanted to sit inside we would have had a long wait despite our reservation. The patio is pretty and pleasant but the chairs are highly uncomfortable. Our server was young and very inexperienced. The drinks took awhile and came out at different times. My husband and I each had one drink and were never offered a second although we were there for well over an hour. Our waters were never refilled. We had calamari as an appetizer which was very good. For dinner we had pizzas and pastas. The pizzas came out well before my husband's and daughter's pastas. We tried to wait for them but it took so long we all ended up eating the pizzas. The pizzas were tasty but the crust was floppy and soggy in the middle. My husband's pasta came out maybe 10-15 minutes after the pizza. It was so salty he could barely eat it. When my daughter's pasta never appeared we questioned the server who said it must have been taken by another server. She said she put in a rush to have it remade, but it still had not come out by the time we were ready for the check. It ended up being ready as we were ready to leave so we had it boxed to go. They did remove that pasta from our bill. We will not be back.

Very good restaurant. Known for their pizza. We didn't actually order pizza, but everything else was at or above expectations. I felt the day to be a little pricey for not having ordered entrees and just splitting salad, small plate, and app. If you can get your kids to split a Kid portion meal, that would be my suggestion. The Kid portions are way more than most can eat and are suited to split. However, with to-go boxes the kid meals turned into additional meals that evening and for lunch the following day. I will surely return and try the pizza.

What a terrible disappointment. We've been to Stuzzi many times and the food especially the pizza is always great. The service is never great but this time it was horrible. We were seated and didn't have a server for a long time. We also didn't have water, napkins, plates or silverware. We ordered and the food came out before the drinks or the plates or silverware. We actually never got water even after two servers said they would bring it. The food came out cold and in two enters came out before he other two for our table and it was clear the waiter had not put the two orders in. The owner/manager sat at the bar while many tables complained and never got off his stool. I'm sorry to say I will never go back and not sure how they can stay I business with this type of service and management

Overall the food and ambiance were fine. The main problem with the experience was the service. I know our waiter was busy because this was saturday night, but still, there were long lags of empty waters and diet cokes on the table, sometimes over 20 minutes (there were 3 of us). He misplaced one of my friend's orders and hers came out almost 15-20 minutes after the other two. He took our dessert order but didn't submit it to the kitchen (or something went wrong in the kitchen) so we cancelled it. Then it took 20 min after that for the checks to come. I usually give waiters the benefit of the doubt but that performance was sub-par.

They charged us $2 for a little cup of marinara and didn't tell us until the bill came. Obviously, this isn't a huge deal but it speaks to the penny-pinching nature of the owner. Everything is at least a little overpriced.

I have been to Stuzzi many times, and the food is excellent. Pizzas are excellent and the gnocchi is top-notch. So go to Stuzzi for the food, which again is excellent and worth the trip. The service is terrible. I have been at least a half-dozen times and every time, the service has been mediocre. This past time was the worst, where our party of six sat there for 15 minutes and no one came up. I finally got up and spoke to the owner and he was very attentive and got our server immediately to our table. Our server had very knowledge of the menu and we literally had to ask for boxes and the check three times at the end of our dinner.

I go to Stuzzi for the food and have low expectations for the service.

We went for Valentines Day and while they were incredibly busy the service was very good. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. My only complaint would be that once our pizza made it to the table it was cool. It wasn't even warm. Despite the temp. it was still delicious so if it had been hot then it would have been out of the park amazing!

Food was very good and plentiful. Service was below par. We were seated when we arrived for our reservation and 15 minutes later I had to go ask a manager if there was a waitress available for our table. Even after that poor start, service was just average going forward. The baked ziti served family style saved the evening.

I love this restaurant. However, I don't love it when we show up early for our reservation and the restaurant is closed with no notification from the restaurant whatsoever. This has happened before but with a more last min reservation at a later time. They advertise being open until 10PM so we made the reservation for 9PM shortly after 8PM. At 8:45 they were locked up tight.
