Went there for a date night. Early reservation, 6:15PM. Ordered Pinot Noir , they were OUT. Dinner was good. Hostess then was raving about desserts and touted one in particular. We ordered it. They were OUT. Ridiculous.

Food was delicious - I ordered a seafood pasta dish - only 2 Scallops - expected more than that. Our server wasn’t the best - we had to remind him my husband never got his wine.

Food was okay, not great. The place was empty and we were the only people in there after 8:30. Service was very good but I wouldn’t return.

Excellent service but food was not up to standard for this class restaurant. Had the chicken parmigiana and it was rather blah tasting.

Slow service, inattentive waiter, poor quality drinks, veal marsala was drowning in greasy cream sauce, eggplant lasagna was flavorful but mushy and the plate was so hot for so long I could tell it was sitting under the salamander for quite a while waiting to be served. Way over priced for the portions and the quality. Decor is lovely, but we won't be back.

Ragazzi’s has been in Tucson for a number of years. They moved to this location about a year or so ago. Their service, ambiance, and food can be counted on for consistent quality.

Arrived on time for our 6pm reservation for 4 people. She said they were running a little late. But, we did not get seated until almost 7pm. This was after she said she was setting up our table, but it was a 2 top, one of 3 in a row along the wall/bench, where she also sat 2 other tables for 2 with 4 people! We refused and waited longer for a table for 4. The restaurant had totally overbooked! They did not even seem apologetic about it. This is the 3rd time we have been there and the third time we have had a reservation problem! The other 2 times, made reservations through Open Table, and they did not even have us on their books. The food is relatively good, but we will probably not return due to the seating problems and their attitude.

We liked the calamari, bread and soup to start. Very good flavor and fresh ingredients. We had a seafood and steak dinner which was very tasty however a bit small portions for the money. Our waiter provided great service and was very friendly. We will be going back again soon .

Waited over an hour with reservations and then found 2 couples with later reservations seated before us. Complained to the hostess and she apologized that one couple was the owner’s parents and the other couple was mistakenly seated first. Then she promised us a discount for waiting that never materialized. The place was exceedingly noisy and the food was average and the prices higher than average. However much of the problems could be alleviated with a new hostess and staff.

The food was excellent , the service was excellent, and all was good with one exception -- the noise was almost unbearable. There was a large group of approximately 20 people seated in the center of the dining room and they seemed to have a contest about who could shout the loudest and make the most noise -- they were totally out of control. Our server and the hostess (manager?) apologized about the situation, but there was nothing they could do. I suggest that in the future, large groups such as these be isolated in the bar area, away from other customers.

We were seated 45 minutes after presenting ourselves on time for a 7pm reservation. While waiting at the bar (drinks comp'ed) we watched as another party of two was seated without reservations (they were friends of ours). Don't plan on returning.

Staff, everyone we were in contact with, were gracious. They all worked hard. We had reservations but still had to wait approx 20 minutes. There was very little room in the bar for our party of four to wait. No seats available except where musician needed to be. Not good, but understandable on a weekend. Food good if a little pricey. Would like to see broader wine list. Dining room noisy. Tables close to each other. Will definitely return but never on a weekend again. Great musician.

Ragazzi has an extensive menu of appetizers, pasta, and entrees. They do not serve pizza at dinner.
Their bread is outstanding as are their seafood pasta selections. Their spaghetti and meatballs are average. This is a good restaurant to meet friends and have a leisurely meal.

Disappointed will not return. Service poor. Waited way too long for food to arrive. Food was mediocre. Even though we had a reservation we had to wait 20 mins til we were seated. Then another wait to place order. Wait some more for order to arrive. We finally got food served one hour after we arrived at restaurant. No excuses.

We do like the food at Ragazzis and the atmosphere, but feel there’s something missing. The service was good, but wine list could be improved. If we are comparing to Vivace’s, then there’s no comparison. It’s still a cut above other Italian restaurants. Love the looks of the restaurant.

Welcoming restaurant - gracious hostess.

Food was Great and service pretty good. It’s a store front in a strip mall so not very cozy or romantic.

Veal was superb. Wife had some seafood pasta which she raves about. Overall very satisfying experience. Would go back again.

It took 45 minutes to sit down, with a reservation. We had to flag our waiter down several times to get service, He never asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. We had to get the bus boy three times to get assistance. It took a very long time to get our check, This was our second time at the restaurant. We will not return,
