THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Racanelli's Restaurant Review

: The yeasty, chewy goodness that’s at the base of this New York-style pizza is at odds with the traditional St. Louis cracker crust, just as its mozzarella is at odds with the local favorite cheese, Provel. Racanelli’s is a family-run chain with multiple locations scattered across the metro area, but it gets street cred from roots going back to the Bronx and---before that---to Bari, Italy. The thin-crust pies come topped with everything from spinach to meatballs; the Bronx Bomber has all 14 toppings at once. However, it’s the Sicilian, a double-rise pizza baked in a pan, that really shows off the simple pleasure of a good sauce and gooey cheese. Calzones, strombolis, heroes and sandwiches piled on house-made focaccia round out the menu. It’s a nice alternative to the national fast-food chains proliferating in Fenton---and, yes, it delivers.
