Excellent service especially with 1 vegetarian and 2 pescatarians. They served up without any fuss about different diets and knew where everyone was sitting. The variation of food was great. The section at the back we had to ourselves. IT doesn't have the ambience of the main restaurant but is good for lively chatter in the group without disturbing others.

Variety and quality of food was outstanding. Presentation on the plate was excellent and the service was prompt and efficient. As each course was delivered to the table a description of the plated food and ingredients was given which added to the pleasure.

Four of us had the Chef's Menu and every course was brilliant. The Duck Ragout Pasta and the Kangaroo Carpaccio were highlights, but, it's so hard to choose favourites when dining at Ragazzone. Service was friendly, attentive and never intrusive. Will definitely visit again!

The food was as usual lovely. Beautifully presented and tasty. Service brilliant. Whilst I understand that Covid has made the time schedule tight, it felt too rushed and went home with an uncomfortable stomach.

After all the hype about this restaurant
I was greatly disappointed in the food .
The quality of the food was not in accordance with high cost.
It was served Luke warm and not tasty and not an example of high end Italian food
I would not recommend this restaurant

Raggazone is just what Ballarat needs. The food is exciting - beautiful fresh ingredients prepared thoughtfully so that each element shines. Each course was thoroughly delicious.
Service was perfect in timing and staff interactions. Our wait staff were engaging and helpful but not too hovering or too chatty.
We’ll be back.

Amazing food and wine. Had the $90pp chefs choice menu which took the fuss out of making decisions. Service was excellent; friendly and helpful with great wine suggestions. The Musk Lane Sangiovese was delicious!

We booked for bar seating & not the Set Menu, instead we were seated at a table and not given the choice to order from the menu. While the food was delicious & the service attentative, there was just too much to really enjoy each course.
