B or Q train to Sheepshead Bay station; B44 or B49 bus to Emmons Ave
Cutting through the chase, our absolute favorites here are their fried calamari, the crab cake sandwich with fries (it’s just sooo good!), and the steamed seafood with pasta entrée. However, we just can’t enjoy either of these without their signature sliced Italian bread, which is served a little stale and enjoyed while dipping in your choice of mild, medium or hot marinara sauce. It’s unexplainably yummy, and gives this place a unique, “at home” feel. Randazzo’s is really festive and is a staple in the Sheepshead Bay neighborhood. Its bright lighting and the festively loud conversation among the staff and patrons make it great for families, groups of friends and a really casual date. Good for lunch or dinner. Randazzo’s offers bottled beers and personal sized bottle wines. We can’t say enough good things about this place. The prices are comparable to the menu selections (which means that since you’re getting a great seafood selection, the food is greatly prepared and the service is hassle free, warm and friendly – you’re paying the best price for all of that). Your visit is almost sure to be a great casual dining experience. Do check it out.
Good! (This place is sure to offer a dish you’ll find special enough to come back for). If you love seafood, this is a promise!
