Ralph's Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I’ve traveled to Italy , I’m an Italian American and I know what Italian food should taste like. And Ralph’s is as good as homemade. I mean real homemade. I don’t now them and I don’t usually post a review. So what’s that tell you... I’ll. be back soon , that’s the best compliment. Carlo Morelli
We headed over to Ralph’s after the eagles game and dinner was outstanding. However I must say that our server Lauren was incredible, best server I have ever had. She guided us through the menu every step of the way. Anything we needed she got for us. I would recommend this restaurant and the server to anyone that would listen to me. Thanks again Lauren for the wonderful service and attention my wife and I will be coming back soon.
Best Italian food around. Nothing fancy, but on point! So relieved they don't put too much cheese and gravy on everything like most "Italian" restaurants. This place is the real deal. Everything from sweetbreads to tripe as well if you enjoy that old world Italian grub.
Ralph’s delivers the real deal - authentic Italian food! I’m an Italian American and the food here is just like I remember as a kid. It’s made just like Mom & Dad made it. The service was great and the menu gives you enough variety so that you can go often. The seating is a little tough with small tables squeezed into a small area, but a frequent visit to Ralph’s is a worthwhile experience. I highly encourage everyone to visit Raplh’s - a true Italian original.
The food was fresh and we'll prepared. Our server, Matt, was very attentive and pleasant. The atmosphere was classic Italiana do would have been a nice quiet date night if not for the wedding rehearsal dinner happening on our floor which was extremely loud and made it difficult for us to enjoy any conversation.
Went here with a friend on a Thursday night and definitely needed a reservation, the place was full but not overcrowded. We order the house a carafe of the house wine which was very affordable and two pasta dishes that were both delicious! Can't wait to go back and try some more. Bonus was it is only three blocks from my place, dangerous!
Calamari over spaghetti. My biggest complaint is I bought the cook book and they are not revealing how they make the calamari so tender and delicious. I've been going to Ralphs for 30 years and that's all I ever get. Antipasta, calamari, house wine. My favorite meal anywhere.
