Razzo's (which means "rocket" in Italian) is located just a short drive away in Rochester, which our readers found was well worth the trip. For those who aren't familiar with Razzo's and its story, it opened in 2008 after the soon-to-be restauranteurs dined at a Rochester pizzeria and decided that they could do it better. The owners bought the place, opened with absolutely zero experience, and haven't looked back in 15 years.
Razzo's has a hearty menu of pizza, pasta, calzones, sandwiches and salads, so there is sure to be something to please everyone's palette. Razzo's makes its pizza dough in-house, with freshly grated cheese, fresh-prepped veggies and a 50-year-old family recipe for its pizza sauce. Razzo's even goes as far as making its own Italian sausage.
If you think a 50-year-old pizza sauce recipe is impressive, Razzo's also uses a 100-year-old family recipe for its pasta sauce. With recipes that have been around that long, no wonder our readers gave Razzo's the nod for first place. They also commented favorably on Razzo's commitment to support the local community that supports it. Razzo's website proclaims "Yes, we are nuts." Our readers, obviously, take that as meant in the best possible way.
