    My best friend and I had an amazing night at Ragazzone. The food was all incredible and the staff took extra time to explain each dish as well as provide some great cocktail recommendations. The restaurant has a great vibe and it’s worth what you pay for the experience!

    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.

    Everything about our night out was absolutely lovely, until the end of the evening, when a waiter who hadn’t served us during the evening, reluctantly asked if we wanted coffee, and his attitude ruined our whole evening. We felt he couldn’t wait to get out out of there even though our time was certainly not up. He was rude, arrogant and condescending. Not good for your business at all. Not sure if I would recommend to a friend simply because if him unfortunately.

    Ragazzone was suggested to me by my manager and I am so thankful that he did. Everything was absolutely amazing, the food, the service and the drinks were incredible. It was amazing to be able to see the chefs cooking and plating up the food! And the menu items allowed me to try and love foods that I probably wouldn’t have ordered on my own!

    Excellent food beautifully presented - scallops were divine, pork belly melts in the mouth, the taste of the sea was perfectly captured in the marinara and let’s not forget the lamb shank and the food just keeps on coming. Well done. I will be back.

    The food was delicious. We were seated in the back room which was so dark we could hardly see our food. The music was loud and we had someone at the table who was hard of hearing. Not a great night for them. We had a table for eight and it was a bit hard to hear the people at the other end. But as I said the food was great.
