Ralph's is an old fashioned restaurant with excellent food and ambience. The prices have gone up a lot since my last visit here about 10 years ago, but the food is wonderful. Great stop for a special date with my husband.

Chicken parmesan was thoroughly enjoyed, as was the manicotti. One in our party raved over the shrimp and gnocchis. The everything salad was plenty for the four of us. This establishment is always a winner in our eyes.

This place is truly a gem. I drove an hour and half to eat here. It was absolutely worth it. Their veal parm was outstanding...best I ever had.

Another good meal. The only negative was the calamari was fishy and we didnt eat much of it but they wouldnt take it off the bill. Kind of not thinking big picture. Our bill for 9 people was nearly $500.

Service is brusque - but polite. The dining room filled quickly - even at 4:30 on a Monday - but service was efficient and food was delicious! Great prices and portion sizes. Definitely make a reservation.

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.

The Veal Parm was delicious! I love that it was so tender yet the coating was little crispy. the dark side of the moon for dessert was soooooo yummy!
