    We dined on Mother's Day, so I was expecting a delay in seating. We had a 7:15 reservation, and arrived at 7:10. When I went to the platform to let them know we were all there, I was informed that our table was being set up. At 7:15 we were seated. This is how a restaurant should be run!!! The staff was attentive, the food was served exactly as ordered, and we all had a great meal. 2 members of our party have gluten allergies, and the menu contains numerous selections to satisfy their needs. I especially like the fact that the gluten free meals are served with a GF flag on the plate. We will definitely dine here again.

    We had been wanting to go to Ragazzi for quite some time and boy were we sorry we waited so long. This place is reminiscent of great dining spots in Florida with a very upscale vibe. Even though it was very hot, we opted to sit outside and the waiters were very attentive to us being in the sun and always took care to adjust the umbrella and constantly filled our glasses with ice water to keep us hydrated. We were 3 adults & 1 child and each of our entrees' were wonderful. We oooed and aaaahed a lot! The manager introduced himself and made us feel so welcome, we felt like we had known him forever. To say that we were happy about our meal, ambience and service would be a big understatement -- we were ecstatic! We can't wait to return.

    Dined on 5/8/2014
    Overall, very good. Only negative is the noise level. When the restaurant is more than 3/4 full, the noise level is so high it is very difficult to carry on a conversation. Early in the week is a good time to go. The restaurant is less full and the overall rating is then a 4.

  • Not On A Saturday Night!
    Disappointed
    Dined on 5/3/2014
    Went to celebrate my son's 40th Birthday with a party of six on a Saturday night. That was a mistake!!! Had to wait more than 20 minutes past my reservation. The place was so extremely noisy - the place was packed and there were several large parties. When seated, one of the large parties kept encroaching upon our table (especially the kids)....when ready to leave, the members of the party just kept hanging around in our immediate area which was very annoying. My wife was brought the wrong order!! She did not reorder because it would take too long and others would be finished with their meal. Wish we knew how crowded this place would be; would have gone elsewhere. Also too noisy to converse among each other.

    Early dinner on Saturday evening. Some kind of party was taking place in the restaurant. It took up most of the tables. We were seated more or less right in the middle of these tables. It was so loud we could barely converese plus there were kids running all around our table screaming. We had to ask to be moved to a table in the bar area, which was slightly quieter but overall it was still ridiculously loud for a dinner hour. If this restaurant wants to accomodate these type of events they should have a separate room so as not to disturb customers coming in to enjoy a quiet dinner.

    Enjoyed the service and the atmosphere. The food was overall good. But I expected more than good. I ate here 1x a year ago and 2x in the fall. I feel the food maybe is getting less attention. I had the chicken stuffed with walnuts and it was dry, good but dry. My wife had the lasagna and it was warm not hot, so we brought it home. Dessert on the pasta night....awesome! We will be back, maybe just an off night.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Easter lunch/dinner this past Sunday a t Rigazzi. They had a special Easter menu as well as their regular menu available. Although there were so many wonderful things to choose from, we chose from the specials menu. The food was DELICIOUS!!! The service staff was friendly and very attentive yet not intrusive. Overall it was a very enjoyable dining experience and we are looking forward to returning (and not just for special occasions)

    My family made a reservation for 8 people. When we arrived they realized we had a wheelchair that couldn't go up stairs. Although we were the first diners of the day, they decided to squeeze 8 of us at a table for four. They should have asked prior if the party could go up stairs. The restaurant was too dark as well which made it hard for the seniors to see the menu. Overall the waiter was great. However, the food was just mediocre. For the price they give you a large size plate but the seafood is tiny. The veal dish I ate was lacking flavor as well. I'm not sure that Ill be back to dine any time soon.

    My daughter was just diagnosed with gluten intolerance and she is struggling with having to give up certain foods. This is NOT a problem at Ragazzi. Almost EVERYTHING on this menu can be prepared gluten free if requested…pastas, pizzas, entrees, appetizers…even bread. The food was delicious! The food was carefully prepared and identified as gluten free as it was delivered from the waiter. We had the gluten free arancini (rice balls)….they were the BEST I've ever had….the risotto inside was moist, flavorful and deliciously crunchy on the outside. She was served a bruschetta on gluten free bread that we were fighting over it was so good. There was even a gluten free tiramisu….wow! We will definitely be going back.

    I went to Ragazzi's w/ my wife's family based on the reviews from others. The friendliness & attentiveness of the staff was wonderful as was the ambience. We were seated promptly in a corner booth & even though there were two parties going on, we were unaffected by any noise. What was disappointing was the food. We order the fried zucchini (soggy & without flavor), calamari (not all fresh calamari, more like frozen from a bag & "again" w/o flavor, even with the marinara sauce &/or the wasabi sauce). Unfortunately, dinner was the same way, I felt like I was on an episode of "Chef Ramses". The only salvation inregards to the food we ate was dessert (& the pizza & fries my son had for dinner). Won't be venturing back there anytime soon.

    We couldn't have been more happy with everything. Our server Robert A. was the best. He explained everything because we have two people who were gluten free. He made sure we got everything we ordered, the way we ordered it. It was a birthday celebration and I love the fireworks. It is very unusual. Needless to say we will be back again.

    Dined here a few times. 45 min wait with a reservation. food was just ok. I think they do a better job with the appetizers than with the main meals. Seafood pasta dish..tiny shrimp, miniscule scallops, chewy calamari...sauce watery. Napoleon dessert was fantastic. Probably wont dine here anymore with so many other great italian restaurants a few minutes away such as Spezia in St James and Manninos in Smithtown.

    The food was very good and so was the service. You could tell they wanted to please you. Although, we sat on the upper level thinking it would be more intimate but it was just the opposite. They had a very large party going on and they were very loud and very distracting and not caring about the other diners near them. They really needed a room for themselves. We couldn't hold a conversation without needing to repeat ourseleves all the time and pratically yelling each other. It was very disappointing.

    waitress was great, food was great, the bread they bring out had a wide variety and was served with a nice pesto hummus. there was no wait to be seated. I did have a reservation, but it appeared they had available seating regardless. the scenery in the restaurant is nice. there is a bar area that has sports on which is close enough to be able to enjoy, but far away enough to not disturb your dinner.

    We dined at the Restaurant this past Saturday evening. We have a reservation for 6:45 PM but arrived a few minutes early and they graciously seated us about fifteen minutes early. The ambience is wonderful, the food was excellent and the server was fantastic and very responsive to our needs. The Staff was very friendly and helpful and we had a great time there. We had been there when the Restaurant first opened about four years ago and will now make this establishment a "regular" on our dining list. It was an enjoyable experience!
