We rendezvoused with old friends and family. Ralph's is such a special place. Not only is the food fantastic but the atmosphere is so warm and friendly. We celebrated another diner's birthday song that was seated in the same room as our party of 8. It was so much fun, we were invited to share the cake, and both parties sang "Fly Eagles Fly". The food and service was wonderful one of my favorite places to dine.

A Lyft driver recommended Ralph’s to us and told us the history of the restaurant. I’m originally from Chicago, and I know good Italian food, so I’m always willing to see what a good Italian restaurant has to offer. I was not disappointed. The location was quaint, and the food was excellent

This was our first time dining at Ralph’s.
We felt our server was a bit short with us and we felt a bit rushed even though the restaurant was not crowded and people were not standing around waiting for tables. Also, at the table next to us one of the employees was filling shakers with parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes; we found that a bit odd since we were in the dinning room and still dinning.
We enjoyed the food and overall had a nice time with our friends at Ralph’s.

This was our third visit to Ralph's, and it will not be our last. Eeach time we have visited the food had been delectable. (I suggest the chicken sorrento). Staff was available and friendly.

We were there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Everything was perfect. The waiter was very nice, answered the kids questions. Food came out fast, but not rushed. Everything was delicious! Will definitely return

Good Service and Good food. Saturday nights will always be crowded and therefore noisy so that was expected but we made a reservation and were seated right away so overall a very good experience.
