    I've eaten at Ragazzi about 5 times now. The decor is very pretty and the food is generally pretty good. One of my guests noted that very few of their main courses are made with traditional red sauce , not a bad thing but just to be noted most of their main dishes are made with a brown or garlic/oil sauce. The service can be inconsistent, sometimes ok but several times i've experienced the disappearing waitress syndrome. This happened on a recent visit when we waited a long time to get our check run, and the restaurant was only at half capacity. for some reason the temperature in the place was also very cold, i almost ate with my coat on.

    The food is excellent and served in generous portions. The service is excellent- the wait staff is very professional and friendly. Your water glass is always filled and your bread basket replenished without having to ask. I also like that they offer many wine varieties by the glass as my wife doesn't drink and I can't finish a bottle by myself.

    We love Ragazzi's!!! It is one of the best restaurants in Long Island. From the moment you enter this restaurant to the minute you leave, every minute is great. Every entree on the menu is prepared with love, care and pride. You never have a bad appetizer, entree and dessert. Everyone who is employed at this restaurant treats you amazing. You will have a terrific evening when you dine here.

    I had made my reservation on line and they had asked us for any special instructions. So I had let them know that my husband had just had knee replacement surgery so we would need a booth and it was out anniversary. The booth was great and the waiter wished us a Happy Anniversary. They made the whole night special. It was nice that a restaurant actually paid attention. I will definitely be back and recommend them to family and freinds.

    I am not easy to please when it comes to Italian food. I lived in Italy. But their food is very good. I have been there many times and it's consistantly great. The stuffed articoke was amazing. My only complaint was that I could not use my iPhone to pay and get my $10 coupon, but the Jelly beans at the door filled my pocket and I forgot all about it.

    Was always curious about this spot and glad we stopped by. We started with a split Caesar salad which was fresh, crisp and dressed perfectly. Our entrees included a Salmon oreganata - flavorful and cooked just right, and Lasagna rollatini - tender and robust. Our server, Nichole, was friendly and attentive. The support staff was prompt and checked on us often. Overall, a great date night, the staff does a great job and we would definitely go back!

    We have eaten at this restaurant many times, and it is not the first time we have had a long wait. We arrived on time for our reservation and still had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. I thought the idea of a reservation was to avoid having to wait. If it weren't for the gluten free food we would probably never go back there. Get your act together! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !

    Made reservation for a "quiet table". They seat us towards the front with the most traffic...hmm. But in their defense, there is no such thing as a quiet table in this restaurant. Tables are close together. We felt like they were more interested in turning tables. We had drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert (included in a special) in less than one hour. The quality of food is good and the portions are huge, which I don't consider a positive as I would rather have smaller portions and higher quality food. I don't like being stuffed like a turkey. You can seriously order just 3 appetizers and it would be enough for 2 people. Wait staff was pleasant, but there were too many negatives for us to be returning customers.

    Be careful making a left ino his place. They made the entrance only suitable for drivers comming from the west. I made a left into the parking lot from RT 25 and damaged my new car with a cement block dividing the people going in and ou of the lot. There is a left lane marked on he street so you would think it would be ok to enter that way but you will hit a cement block. I heard other patrons while I was there complaining about the samething.

    Ragazzi provides a wonderful dining experience. This is a sophisticated atmosphere but without the outrageous price tag. There is a variety of different food to choose from, as well as the specials. I asked for fettuccine alfredo (which was not on the menu) and there was no problem in the chef whipping it up for me. Besides the fettuccine, All the meals were delicious and flavorful. Service was attentive and I felt that whatever I wanted would not be a problem for my waiter. We were there on a Saturday evening, but because we had reservations we did not have to wait to be seated. The restaurant was full, but the noise level was fine and we were still able to carry on a normal conversation.

    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!

    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)

    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!
