    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/1/2014
    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!

    Usually very crowded in the evening due to location & reputation. Food has gone down a notch in quality and prices inced up. Wait staff varies from good down to very poor trainees that should not be serving or spilling things on customers. I'll go else where.

    The food was superb. So delicious that I craved it the next day. The service is outstanding. We went there to celebrate my son's birthday and then again the following week. Both times someone in our group didn't realize what type of sauce was on their dinner selection and the waitress took it back and gave them a new dish with the sauce of their choice. Next month we're having a 80th birthday party there.

    The food was ok at best. I was really not impressed with the seafood becuase it tasted like it was frozen prior. In aiddition my waitress said she would bring me a replacement for my over saled fettachini which was un bareable. She brought me a menu and forgot about me for 30 minutes. When she came back she asked if i wanted desert and forgot that i wanted somthing different and she never even took the old plate away while i looked at the menu.

    Went here for valentines day. They had a good valentines day specials. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our reservation, and the parking lot was completely full. But service and quality of food was very good! They had heart shaped pasta, unfortunately were out of by the time we got there. My girlfriend received a free rose and a picture on their Facebook page. They seem to have a great Tuesday night pasta special. Will deff be coming back!

    I have been dining here since ragazzi first opened. It truly is a neighborhood gem. The staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. The ambience is inviting and relaxing. The food is outstanding to say the least. From the first bite you can tell everything is freshly made with all the finest Ingredients. Ragazzi is by far an upscale dining experience with out the shocking bill at the end. Very reasonable for the quality of food. I would and do recommend ragazzi to everyone... Keep up the fantastic job!!!

    Took my wife and 2 children (older) out to celebrate mom's birthday and the food was fantastic and the service great, mentioned to our waiter that it was her birthday and they came out at the end with a sparkler on a piece of cake, very nice. Also, one of our sons is autistic and can be difficult at times in public spaces, but the wait staff must have sensed the issue and where VERY patient with him throughout the entire time.

    We have gone to Ragazzi many times before and we enjoyed it very much but this last visit we were extremely disappointed with the food. The rolls were cold, my veal parm actually looked like a Swansons TV dinner. We will not be going back to this restaurant nor will we recommend it to anyone. And to top it off the price we paid made us feel even more disappointed.

    Food is very good!! So glad we were able to make a reservation less than an hour prior using Open Table and avoided what could have been a very long wait. They were offering a Saturday night special, dinner & a movie which includes a free ticket to any AMC theatre. Worked out great since we planned on going to the movies afterwards. Highly recommend.

    We sat in a booth in the bar area and we froze. The draft from the window was so bad we had menus standing up to block the draft.my Husband ordered ravioli and the cheese was bad. They did take it back and replace his dinner but this is not what you want when dining out. The drinks were delicious but very weak on the amount if liquor that was used. All in all we did not have a good experience. I would not recommend this place

    Good food.. Really nice setting.. Disappointed with the service.. All the employees and staff were well dressed and presented a inviting product, unfortunately they didnt live up to expectations.. If there was some kind of team work and communication between employees to let each other know what needs to be done the place would be a 5 star experience..

Given the occasion, we had good service - water glasses were refilled promptly and the management was receptive to our requests. Would recommend this restaurant and will definitely go again.
