Local family operated Pizzeria still getting “Rave” reviews on food and entertainment

Now in its fifteenth year, The Ravenite has made a name for itself in Downtown Fairhope. This family owned and operated pizzeria was named after the original Ravenite, a club in the Little Italy section of Brooklyn which no longer exists. The skyline of New York City wraps around the interior of the Ravenite and the kitchen is bricked in a manner depicting a fire station. Their pizzas are hand tossed with dough that is made fresh daily.  The sauces are homemade and they blend their cheeses. The Ravenite serves traditional New York style pizza. There are several ingredient combinations to choose from in addition to specialty and gourmet pizzas. There is also a gluten free crust option. Pasta Dishes include Spaghetti and Meatballs, Spaghetti Puttanesca, Manicotti, Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti Pomodoro. Calzones, Stromboli and specialty sandwiches. Hearty sized chicken wings come in buffalo, Thai, honey garlic BBQ, Buff-a-Que and Jamacian jerk flavors. Chicken fingers are also an option along with salads and appetizers. The menu is in the process of being expanded to include cannelloni, buffalo chicken bacon cheese fries and a few more  specialty pizzas.

There is a full bar featuring a large beer selection. The Ravenite provides entertainment in the form of live trivia and rock and roll bingo. It is also a great late night option providing live music and karaoke. The Ravenite is open 7 days a week, Sunday and Monday they open at 4pm, Tuesday thru Saturday for lunch and dinner. Several nights a week, the kitchen has extended hours and serves until midnight.
