    I took my parents and my son for dinner the other night. The wine options are impressive and we each chose and enjoyed our beverage of choice. The food was very good, although the menu is not large, there is something for everyone. The atmosphere is fun, the owner and waiter are personable, and I will definitely be back. It was too loud for my parents,but my son and i I enjoyed the music.

    Our favorite place to eat in Little Italy. Always great food, always fun, authentic Sicilian / Italian food made by authentic Sicilians. Roberto makes incredibly good cokctails and he sings too. Love that they have grappa. They also make the best espresso in town. Highly recommend.

    Overall the food was good and service staff friendly. Be sure, however, to check your bill at the end of the meal. We were not given a detailed bill due to the restaurant using a hand-held payment method, which emailed the final bill. After returning home and reviewing the emailed bill we found we were charged for a glass of wine we did not order, and the bottle of wine we ordered was not the one reflected on the bill (higher price). We don't believe the mistakes were intentional, but rather a mix-up due to two different servers taking our order.

    Marco provided great service from start to finish. He made sure the people in the party who had to leave for airport got their food first. The food was delicious - green lasagna and meat lasagna were big hits at the table. The fish and pasta specials were terrific. And the chefs selection appetizer was amazing. Already planning a trip back!

    Second time visiting R&G and both dining experiences were a delight. Marco has the best wine recommendations. Their green Lasagna is heaven and "it's the best in the city, try it." (The Godfather) We will continue to return until we have tried everything on the menu.

We had meat and cheese board for two that was so filled with delicious meat and cheese that it was enough for our entree. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it!

    First the good… the service was outstanding and the gentleman singing and playing guitar was amazing! The outdoor dining was nice too. Unfortunately the food was not great. My husband had the sea bass over lobster mashed potatoes and he said the fish, although cooked well, was very “blah” and his lobster mashed potatoes had no lobster. I had the chicken parm and it was TERRIBLE! Chicken parm is my go-to dish at an Italian restaurant and this was definitely one of the worst I have ever had. It was soooo rubbery that I couldn’t eat it. The pasta was good though so at least I had something to eat! I can’t believe all the positive reviews of this restaurant. Maybe it was an “off night” for them but I definitely would not return!

    I’ve been here four times and each time they exceed my expectations. The proprietors are incredibly friendly, the place is clean, the food is excellent, and the music is quiet and top-notch. Away from the cluster of people in Central Little Italy, this place, being on the outskirts, is a diamond in the rough!

    Don't think twice about eating here if you haven't already. I loved everything about this place. The service is fantastic - very warm, welcoming, professional, and fun. The food was notably delicious and perfectly prepared. I'm often disappointed by meatballs served at local Italian restaurants, but here, they could have been prepared by my late Grandmother. The pasta dish of the evening was phenomenal. I'm drooling thinking of the garlic bread - get it. I want to try everything and will be back!

    Food was very good, and the staff was extraordinary... great energy. Initially, we found the lighting a little off-putting (stark LED), but do not let that deter you. Come in and you'll feel like you've been transported to Italy! And don't pass up the lemon tiramisu!

    Came for pasta while out of town. Several apps on the menu, server recommended meatballs and garlic bread. Meatballs were pretty good, garlic bread was average (more hard/crispy than I prefer). Entree/pasta selection changes daily, not listed on the menu. Traditional and green lasagna were available, or penne with scallops. I opted for the traditional. It was good, though I wouldn’t call it the best pasta I’ve ever had, as other reviews indicated. I got the cannoli to go, it was a bit too sweet for my liking. Service was okay. I dined solo and there was a boisterous party near me that occupied the server.
