I must say I loved the building and the old wood floors and painted ceiling. Menu and specials give a nice variety to choose from. Bread for the table was room temperature, it would have been nice to get warm bread. My business colleague ordered the chicken parm and enjoyed his dish. I ordered the veal capriccioso. It was good, 6.5 out of 10. What I did not like was that it was swimming in sauce and the sauce was not as hot or warm as the veal and it needed a little something to bring out its flavor. The veal was good, but not the best I have had. That being said, I would return and dine there again. Nothing bad about the meal, I just think has more potential.

My only complaint was the penne vodka dishes seemed like they had been sitting around and were a bit dried out. Everything else was delicious! Waitstaff was attentive in checking on us and refilling our waters while letting us enjoy our visit with each other.

The mussels were delicious and tender but the white garlic sauce is the worst I ever had. Watery. Not much flavor. The roasted peppers and mozzarella were bland. I expected more olive oil and garlic. The papardella pasta and marinara delicious !The flounder franchise and veal Marcella were the best I probley ever had...delicious! And the cannoli and tiru misu amazing...pass the chocolate cake. Nothing special Overall I would not go back...to many other better Italian restaurants in Philadelphia

Great for larger parties and attentive service. For food, we got: - Bruschetta: comes with four pieces, as expected nothing special - Meatballs: comes with 2 meatballs, dense but lots of sauce for dipping. We asked for the ricotta on the side and they were very amenable - Penne alla vodka with shrimp: good amount of shrimp, but was super limited on sauce which was a total bummer - Fettuccine Alfredo: status quo, but not a ton of flavor - Gnocchi blush: lots of sauce, good flavor - Chicken parmigiana: large pieces of chicken covered in mozzarella and sauce, great flavor and dish For dessert, we had the tiramisu (as expected) and the tartuffo (this was great but superrr hard so it was really difficult to scoop a bite until it had time to soften). Not sure if we’ll back, but as one of the oldest Italian restaurants it did the job.

I'm a very good home cook and particular about where we dine. We had the basics at Ralph's.... Antipasto, Clams Casino,Chicken Parm, Veal Parm, Lasagna, Canolli cake for dessert. EVERYTHING was so fresh and delicious. Cooked perfectly. Veal & chicken were tender and moist. The breading was fried perfectly crisp, the sauce was fresh and had perfect consistency. Lasagna was perfect, Clams Casino were very tasty with the perfect amount of ingredients and seasoning. So happy I decided to scrap cooking this year and go to Ralph's. They never disappoint. Always consistent. An Italian Market staple!

The mussels in red sauce still reign as my favorite. Plump and delicious mussels in a wonderfully garlicky red sauce. The Caesar salad was quite good and easily shareable. The chicken Sorrento lived up to my memories. Perfectly cooked moist chicken with a simple but rich heavenly white sauce with cheese. The portion was so ample my friend went home with my leftovers. My friend had the veal saltimbocca which was also quite tasty. (I think he liked mine better). We ordered spaghetti and escarole as sides. I’d prefer my escarole slightly less cooked but it was still good. The carafe of Chianti was quite good and a real bargain at $25. We finished our meal was with a delicious cannoli, and I had a decaf cappuccino. I am now wishing I had my leftovers. Still a south Philadelphia favorite.
