The Raimo’s Story

Raimo’s history started long ago when Papa Frank and Mamma Sarina came to the United States with their children from Messina, Italy. Like many European people of their generation, Frank and Sarina learned that America was the land of promise and that they would have a good chance to better their life. So in the early 1970’s, they began their long journey and settled on Long Island. Back in Italy, Frank and Sarina both had grown up in the “trattoria business,” therefore when they came to New York, they were able to get jobs in restaurants. They worked very hard for many years and together with their grown children, opened the first Raimo’s Restaurant & Pizzeria in Freeport, N.Y. One thing the family kept in mind was to do things better and different than all other restaurants, and that was to offer the finest quality of authentic Italian food and hospitality. Today, Raimo’s is known for certain signature dishes such as “Pasta ai Gamberetti,” “Veal Rollatini,” “Focaccia pizza” and many more delicacies which originated back in Frank and Sarina’s hometown of Messina. They are proud of their accomplishments and hope to carry on the family tradition for generations to come.

I've been going there since High School. About 38 years. Best pizzeria in Freeport. Some of the same staff is still there. Even their mom is still cooking in the back. God Bless You Guy's.

I have been eating at Raimos for over 15 years ONE OF THE BEST PIZZA JOINTS ON LONG ISLAND... This is one of the places I always make sure to visit when I am back in New York. Highly recommend you check this place out!!

Trinity Allen

Best Italian food I've ever had!! They are truly a family run place with fabulous service, amazing prices, huge portions, and a nice atmosphere. This is our new go to place for dinner. Try the sausage broccoli rabe slice and you HAVE to get the spaghetti and meatballs. Sounds boring but it's the furthest thing from it... Amazing.
Their food is very good & service is great ☺

The seafood dishes are amazing! Explodes with taste. Pizzas are addictive.....


Best Pizzeria in Freeport NY. Visiting from Florida after moving out of Freeport 20 years ago. We just had to go back.

Everything here is amazing. My family orders from here a couple times a month!

If you're looking for more than generous sized heroes and dinners, this is your place. The pizza is also more than worthy of being called among the best on LI. I've been dining here for over 30 years and it would be tough to say that I've ever been disappointed in the product. The staff is friendly and the owner always greets the customers. Suggested dishes: Chicken Parm hero, Veal Parm hero, Baked Ziti Sicilian style (w/eggplant), Stuffed Pizza (unreal), Fettucini Carbonara (ask for melted mozzarella on top)

Been going here since I was a kid. There are lots of places that sell pizza, but few that make pizza like they do at Raimos. Real Italian pizza with the right ingredients that make their taste unique. The slices are big and loaded with cheese. Once you've tried this pizza, you'll be coming back, guaranteed!
