    The food and service were fantastic. We enjoyed every course and Michelle, who looked after us was fabulous. She was professional and friendly and extremely knowledgeable about both food and wine. She no doubt enhanced the total experience for us. We would definitely recommend your restaurant to anyone who enjoys great food , service and ambience..

    The staff are fabulous, food great although I’ve had much the same dishes each visit (my most recent was my 4th visit), I do feel it is overpriced ,the 2 sittings are more about staffing not capacity. 6pm is what I consider nursery tea not adult dinning

    I love Ragazonne! The service is amazing, the food is 5 star and it never disappoints! The team made my 40th birthday a special occasion without any prompting. They went above and beyond and it was a lovely surprise. I would recommend to anyone! I can’t rate the food high enough!

    Delicious food. Some food needed to be served hotter in temperature. Service very disappointing. Our waitress very undertrained or not trying her best ?? Wasn’t able to clearly outline the 2 dining options. When asked to repeat them 5 minutes later, gave a different version which was still unclear. Almost served our wine to a different table, then didn’t even show us the label on wine before pouring. Still not sure if it was what we ordered. Then emptied last contents of bottle out, instead of serving it to us. What should have been a great experience was marred by the poor service

    One of the best places in Ballarat to have a feed, food is not only pretty but seasoned and tasty. Cocktails are delicious and overall a great experience. Love the fact you don’t get to choose it’s just delivered. Highly recommend this place.

    Had been wanting to visit Ragazzone for a long time, finally booked for an anniversary and loved it. Will not be waiting as long for the next booking. Really great staff and service. Delicious food, that had been thoughtfully planned. Menu was beautifully balanced. Left with that ‘just right’ feeling. Not too fully, not hungry, just right.
