Visiting our daughter at Webster University and wanted a quick dinner. It was hard to agree on our pizza toppings since it all looked so good. We settled on 2 pizzas and a Stromboli(which was more like a calzone to us Indiana folks). All very fresh ingredients and nice crust. Decor is nothing fancy and seems very family friendly with...

Great New York style pizza. Excellent sauce, fresh ingredients, and crunchy crust. Perfect for folding a large slice while you take a big bite and dream about the Big Apple.

We were really looking forward to trying Racanelli’s Pizza in Webster Groves. We are not big fans of thin crust pizza and prefer East Coast Style-Hand Tossed/Classic Style crusts.. so it sounded like a great idea. For starters, as first timers at this location, we ordered a simple pepperoni with sausage for carry-out. Sad to say we were disappointed. First... More

I had the spinach calzone and I have to say the crust was perfect, not to thick and it was stuffed with lots of spinach and cheese, I didn't feel like I was getting mostly crust like at some restaurants.

I was visiting from out of town and I am always searching for good and true New York style pizza. It looked promising from the website and pictures. Well, it was good pizza, but it wasn't great pizza. The pizza was a bit under salted, but most of the crust was just not right. Maybe they need a higher gluten... More

When this place first came to town we ordered a hamburger pizza. When it arrived it looked fine, but once I bit into it I spit it back out. The, "hamburger" was the taste and consistency of canned dog food. We have never been back and never will. Can't say what this says about the taste buds of the rest... More

Like many other reviewers, the wife and I are NJ natives and have been craving "real" pizza since we moved here 4 months ago. After some research, we settled on trying Racanelli's (after a severely disappointing and misguided Imo's experience....what the $&@/? is Provel anyway?). They hit the nail on the head! Mozzarella!!! What a concept on pizza.... The sauce... More

As a previous reviewer said, results vary based on location. I love New York pizza, and Racanelli's, when it's good, is about as close to the real thing as possible. The Webster Groves location has consistently made the best food. The pizza is evenly cooked, with no burnt crust, an issue I've had a couple of times with the location... More

It's tough being a Jersey Girl, living in St Louis where people consider cardboard squares topped with glue to be pizza (aka Imo's). Racanelli's comes pretty close to the pizza I grew up with. I love being able to order a 'slice of plain' and they know that I mean 'cheese with no extra toppings'! The Webster Location is one... More
