    Dinner was delicious and service very good. Restaurant was very busy with several birthdays going on but we were seated quickly and our waitress was attentive and pleasant. Even with a busy crowd, the owner made time to stop by and greet his guests. The gluten-free menu is another plus.

    Very nice looking place. Overall the food was good but the service was lacking. It appeared that the service team might just have been inexperienced and it seemed that no one was supervising to ensure a great dining experience. We had to ask for the bread basket (really in an Italian restaurant). Unfortunately my wife's cosmo tasted like cranberry juice with barely a splash of vodka. One of groups appetizer came after the rest of us finished ours. One dinner came about five minutes after the rest of us were served. We had the dinner and a movie special and they did not give us our movie tickets. So, to sum it up it was just OK.

    We don't normally come to this area for dinner, we live in Dix Hills, but had to go to Apple store and decided to get a bite. Looked on Open Table and Ragazzi popped up..Very crowded naturally for a weekend night, Hostess wasn't the most personable person, but blew that off. We sat and had a few apps that were delish!! The Calamari I would go back for! Tender and light....."Italian sushi" was yummy, what a great concept! Eggplant tower was very good....I would go back while in that area for sure!

    The wait for a table was quite long; especially since we saw quite a few open tables available for diners. Could be there were groups needing tables to be put together, but an explanation would go a long way towards keeping patrons patient. The food and service here are wonderful, though.

    Third time dining here. Nice looking place, food is very good, nice bar. Owner is often or always on site which I believe makes a difference at any establishment. Hostess and staff very welcoming, other than 1 waitress whose style was a bit abrupt and got lost a few times chatting with her colleagues....but other than that one server everyone else was fine

    Ragazzi restaurant was an excellent choice for my wife's birthday. The food was good (only iffy topic was the price on 2 dishes of pasta ala Vodka for the kids) and reasonable. The restaurant co-owner (Sal) greeted us and made our night much more special. He also sent us complimentary specialty coffees of our choice and a special birthday dessert and candle for the birthday celebration. We truly felt like we were dining in a family members home. Additionally, you can go next door to Costco and purchase a $100 gift card to Ragazzi for $$79.00. It helps ! Lastly, the servers / waiters (Rob, Jen and others were exceptional)

I've been telling my parents you have to go there. We finally all went for my mom's birthday and they loved it. Ragazzi has 2 more new customers!

    We took the family again last night to Ragazzi and this time we were there for pasta night. All pasta options are options including the amazing lobster ravioli. The meal was delicious and I had a Napoloeon for the first time for dessert as part of the special and it was delicious. I can't wait to go back again.

    If you are looking for a mediocre dining experience then Ragazzi's is the place for you. The menu looks promising but the actual food does not live up to the hype. The cuisine at Cheesecake Factory which is across the street is far superior and it's a chain restaurant. Don't waste your money!

    We celebrated my grandmother's 97th birthday with a small luncheon with the immediate family. Never been here before, we really didn't know what to expect. All 12 of us had nothing but good things to say about the food, the service staff and the owner/manager. We weren't in a rush to eat and run but towards the end it did seem that the service got a bit slower. Overall I recommend it, the dinning room is very nice and comfortable and they accommodated us in every aspect. WELL DONE!

    Reservations were easy to make. Sat at tables outside which were great till we were disrupted by bees. The bus boy was even afraid to get stung when taking the plate. They messed up the appitizer order. After we asked to go inside they told me the gluten free tortillinis were not availalbe 20 minutes after we placed our order. When we took our table inside at a booth in the bar. It was not crowded but we still had to wait 20 minutes for our dinner plates. We then ordered dessert. We waited 15 minutes to get a gluten free canoli while our waiter was talking to the table behind us about his personal life. The canoli was gross and expensive($12). Over all they charged $25 with all items combined extra to make it gluten free.

    Ragazzi is such a great place. The food is great otherwise we wouldn't return, but the most wonderful thing about it is that the manager ALWAYS comes to your table and really makes you feel like you're family. That is worth so much in my book! I love the selection and the fact that even if something isn't on the menu (in case you have someone who is fussy and wants you to do this and that) they will definitely accommodate your request not matter how big or small.

    This was my third time back in a month. Every time we've been there, the food was good. This time, the waiter made some errors on our order, but they were quickly rectified. We went with a group of ten of us and everyone was satisified and couldn't even eat dessert! When you are out and about shopping by the mall and want a nice meal, come here! Prices were good and the owner is very quick to please the patrons. It feels like you are in your family kitchen when the owner stops by and sits with you to see how things are. He really cares about his restaurant, and that makes for a happy dining experience. The food was good, and service does matter!

    The menu is similar to what it used to be, but the quality of the meals has definitely changed. Everything we ordered were dishes we had ordered previously, but everything was different. The food was bland, the veal was tough, and even the chopped tomato topping served with the bread basket was weak. This used to be one of our favorite places, but not any more. We didn't recognize any of the staff. I suspect the restaurant is under new management.
