The waitress lacked training of the menu and wine list. The food taste was marginal and lacked flavor. The value of the meal was too expensive for the quality of the food. The one man band was too loud and ruined the ambience.

Had a great time siting and dining while listening to music. The food was really great even has gluten free options. It’s alittle chilly but wasn’t too bad. Server was really nice and patience with me since I’m deaf. So far it’s great place.

We were very impressed with the whole experience dining at Regazza di Bufalo. It was nicely decorated and clean. It felt as if we were dining in Italy. Our waiter, Felix, was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and we appreciated Chef Topple taking the time to introduce himself. We definitely will eat there again! We are anxious to try his restaurant in McCall too. Thank you Chef Topple and Felix and the rest of the staff! We enjoyed our time at your restaurant.

Maybe we ordered the wrong thing, but the food was pretty basic and could have had a little more flavor. We will give it another try sometime in the future.

Very pleasant early New Year’s Eve dinner last night. Restaurant has an old country ambiance ~ small but well curated dinner and wine menus with selections that reflect classic Italian dishes. Attentive service, kitchen paced courses from appetizers through dessert nicely. Outstanding deep fried Calamari, Chopped Italian Salad were delicious, generous and shared between us. Our orders of Gnocchi and Shrimp Scampi were satisfying but both drowning in their respective sauces, sometimes less is more. Tiramisu and Pear Tart with a red wine reduction sauce were a sweet finish to the palate pleasing meal. I’d like to have seen a couple additional pasta choices, Spaghetti Carbonara being one, but all in all we enjoyed what the kitchen had offer, the homeyness of the restaurant, and the welcoming vibe of the place.

Server was personable and attentive. Cocktails were well made.
Food was ehhh. Portions were modest.
We enjoyed a delicious meal at Chef Topples’ Ragazza restaurant in McCall, so we had high expectations for this Caldwell relative.
Upon entering and smelling a strong mustiness, I was put off, but had hopes of a yummy meal. The booth was uncomfortable. Wish I could recommend this restaurant….Perhaps we have higher than average expectations.

My husband and I were so excited we found an authentic Italian Restaurant only 25 minutes from our home. It was a perfect evening with a delicious dinner and lovely wine. My husband had the buffalo and sausage lasagna and raved about it and I had the Fruiti De Mar (Fruit of the sea) pasta dish and it was delicious.
Leslie our server was full of energy and was very helpful with our wine selections and never skipped a beat with us and great service.
Oh yes and the ambiance is calm, welcoming, delightful, and relaxing.
I would highly recommend eating here.
We cant wait to go back.

Excellent dinner overall! Started with house salad & veggie sausage soup. Both well seasoned and thoughtful - salad had salami, cheese and olives for the extra touch and soup was flavorful but not mushy. Entrees were the seafood pasta and lasagna. Seafood pasta was a lighter version of a cioppino with less tomato and just enough chili flake for warmth. Husband had the lasagna with a cream sauce and mushrooms that was super rich but a nice change from a traditional red lasagna. Finished with the pear crumb cake and gelato. Only off note was icy/grainy gelato that still was tasty. Excellent service & a great meal too!

Veal Osso Bucco was good. Price was right also. Truffle risotto was not bad ... a bit crunchy.... needed a bit more cook time to reach creamy consistency. Fruti de Mar Pasta with Spaghetti, Clams, Shrimp, Squid, Scallop and Arrabiatta Sauce was delicious. The broth was the star of the meal! Paired with a delicious Primitivo Italian wine recommended by our waiter. A lovely meal. Would definitely recommend.

Drink service was slow and our drinks did not come out together. Our meals did not come out together either. By the time my wife’s meal came out, my meal was no longer hot. All of this was going on while our waiter was standing around talking to someone at the door. Also, the waiter came around and asked my wife about another drink. She responded yes and began to walk off without asking me. We had to stop him and tell him I wanted another as well.

What a great find! The staff, food and ambience exceeded our expectations.
Leslie, our server, was attentive without hovering. She allowed us to taste our wine selection before we committed to ordering a bottle. The artichoke appetizer she suggested was perfect with the wine. For the main course we selected the shrimp manicotti and the pork marsala. Both entrees were perfectly prepared; so delicious and generous. A takeout order of tiramisu, also delicious, was enjoyed at home. we will definitely be return customers.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Ragazza Di Bufalo. Our server was relatively new but worked especially hard to make sure that our needs were met. The food was delicious. The ambiance was outstanding with some live music and the normal background noise of people talking and enjoying themselves. My buffalo lasagna was amazing. Overall, it was a very nice and romantic evening.

I have written a review before, but every experience is just so good. Our waiter was fabulous! Very attentive and equally knowledgeable about the food, the beverages and the wine selection. His recommendations were perfect. The food was divine. Regazza is my new favorite. I will pick them every time.

The food is unique and excellent. My seafood dish had clams, mussels, shrimp, and squid. All were cooked perfectly and served over spaghetti with a red sauce...spicy, but not too hot. All the dishes, wines and desserts we had were top notch. Highly recommend

I really wanted to love Ragazza Di Bufalo, Caldwell, Idaho 😢😞

The goods:

The calimari was cooked perfectly! Not chewy, spongy or rubbery but soft and delicate. Unfortunately the breading was over floured and under seasoned, throwing the dish off and leaving a powdery taste in your mouth.

The service was excellent. Our server was friendly and fast. We were never left waiting.

The bread was delicious!

The prosciutto salad was incredible. If it had been cantaloupe season, the dish would have been a 10 of 10. 

The Cabernet Savignon that they have by the glass is very good.

The not so good:

The salmon was good but slightly over cooked with a bit of a fishy smell.

The risotto was over cooked and mushy. The Osso Buco had absolutely amazing bone marrow but was over cooked. I did have a couple of small pieces that were moist.

The lasagna was thick, heavy and over cooked. The pasta was rubbery with what I would describe as an overdone Béchamel sauce. The dish seemed clunky. 

The Burrata appetizer was melted into a pool and turned to rubber. The salad next to the Burrata was really delicious and the bread was done well.
