Per usual another amazing experience at Ralph’s! We had our first date at Ralph’s and returned on Monday evening to celebrate our engagement. They allowed us to sit at the same table and it made it all the more special. Thank you!

Ralphs is always a great place to go if you want real Italian cooking. Our waiter was excellent and it's a fun atmosphere if you grew up in an Italian family environment.
the folks next to us were from Kansas and appeared to really enjoy their experience.

There's a reason Ralph's has been open for 120 years. The food is tremendous. I had the veal Parm and we shared a dish of mussels which were outstanding. Our server(Matt) was very friendly .

Really good Italian place in Philly, billed as the oldest in the US. Unlimited italian bread, huge salad, fettucini alfredo was delicious but didn't get all that much.

Great Italian spot in South Philly. For Saturday lunch, got there at noon - plenty of seats. Warm bread and butter served right away. Glass of Chianti and some meatballs to start. My wife had the pasta with garlic and oil - couldn’t finish it - large portion. I had meatballs with spaghetti - perfect. Not inexpensive but really good with large servings.

Seating too tight. Too many tables in small space. Felt like a sardine.

Great food!. Room we sat in was upstairs and super HOT and NOISY! Not a place to dine if you want to talk to your friends and family sitting at your table. That was a BIG disappointment 🙁
