Fabulous meal. Lasagna & meatballs were fabulous. Veal parm was huge & delicious. Will definitely return. And the valet parking was great. Didn’t have to hunt for a parking space. Thank you for a fabulous meal.
Definitely in my top 5 choices in Philly as to where I'm going to dine with family and/or friends :)
My sons (17, 16 and 12) made dinner reservations for our last night in Philadelphia. The staff was friendly, menu selections great and food was delicious. Excellent Italian food - I highly recommend Ralph's!
We eat here whenever we are in Philly. Just love it. Food and service are spectacular!
I have been going to Ralph’s for over 30 years, it never disappoints. It is exactly the same as when I was a kid.
Excellent authentic Italian food.
historic restaurant, great food/gravy, wonderful staff, talented chefs . don't miss it!!!
Always fantastic food and service.
Awesome and the funniest waiter named David ever!
We've eaten at Ralph's a dozen or so times for a reason: their food is outstanding! JB always makes us feel welcomed when we walk in the front door, and Lauren was on-point with her service and hospitality. Our reservation was for 6:30. We arrived early in order to have a pre-dinner drink and I ended up in a conversation with someone who was there for the first time. I recommended the chicken parm and the gentleman ended up stopping at our table on the way out to shake my hand and thank me for the heads up. Their meatballs are a MUST!
The food was very good. I had chicken florentine and a ceasar salad. The salad and entree were large and, as usual, I took half my food home. My husband and daughter enjoyed their meals. Very attentive waiter, who also kindly shut off the whirling ceiling fan over our head. The first floor space was not very atmospheric. Overall, nice meal.
Food was amazing. This place serves real deal Italian food! Worth every penny!
Awesome! Old school Italian spot so delicious!
Food and service excellent as usual! This place never disappoints!
Excellent food in a great, traditional South Philly Italian atmosphere.
Outstanding on every aspect ! From time you enter the door until you leave!
Delicious food as always - the veal Parmesan is spectacular. Service very attentive but not overbearing
The food and service were outstanding! Made our trip to Philadelphia memorable! We will be back!
Very authentic Italian food. have been married into an italian family for years and this is that hard to get real italian cuisine like you get home. Very Very good. Atmosphere is inline with what you would expect from such an Iconic place. Energy in the resturant is good. not overpoering.
Must have a reservation. Food is outstanding. Service great and not rushed. Met someone who has been dining there for 66 years and stops every time he is in Philly. Valet service ($10) gets busy so use public transit or cab if able.
We had such a great time here entertaining friends from abroad. The host was friendly and showed us more attention than most places. Our waiter mike was attentive friendly and just the perfect waiter in every way. The food was incredible this place has it all we were there the night of villanovas win. The whole room was talking about it as were the staff. They made it a fun atmosphere we felt we were with a bunch of friends Ralphs is truly an experience and not one to be missed there is no place in the city like it you are never a customer u are a friend or family thank you for welcoming us and treating us so well
Great food! Good portions. Neighborhood restaurant ambiance. Definitely would recommend and eat here again!
Ralph's has always been a place where my family went to eat on special occasions because it's the closest thing to good homemade Italian food your gonna get.
We went on Easter Sunday, so it was very crowded and noisy. Tables are very close together and service was bare minimum. The ravioli and chicken parm were very good, but I had veal marsala, and not only was the veal very overdone, the sauce had zero marsala flavor. It mostly tasted like butter. I was very disappointed and would not eat here again.
Awesome food. All six of us loved our dinner. And didn't know it is the oldest Italian restaurant in the US.
affordable menu, delicious food and excellent service!!
Ralph’s is a treasure!
First time there, will definitely go back, worth the drive into the city. Gave a lot of food, had enough for a second meal.
We liked it so much we went back again the next night!
Quaint atmosphere, amazing authentic Italian food (perfect portions), and great service! Definitely recommend
Tables were crammed in so tight there was barely enough room for our dinner plates and glasses. The food was bland and not noteworthy. Waitstaff was so busy it was impossible to get a refill on water. We made reservations through this website and put that it was for our honeymoon and nothing was said on our arrival. Very very disappointed after driving an hour to eat at this famous restaurant.
Absolutely the BEST italian food in the city. We were a party of 8 and NOT one person got a bad meal. And we love SEAN the 2nd floor bar tender.
Excellent meal in the city !!!
Snarky server-and not in the “fun Italian way”.
Lasagne was pretty bad
Rest of our meal was “fine”
I don’t get it. Had better Italian food in Nazareth the next day.
Food is consistently great and plenty of it. Wait staff checks on you unlike other restaurants who forget about you once you get your meal. Always a good time out
Everything was incredible as always. Best Italian food in the world.
Ralph's was on my bucket list and I did not leave disappointed. Food was excellent and our waitress, Lauren I believe, was great. I will be going back again for sure.
Ralph's is a classic Italian restaurant in Philly. I've been there a number of times with clients and business associates. First time with my wife for a quiet Sunday lunch. We had a nice time. Quiet, awesome food, good service. Ask the server for recommendations around your likes. They WILL hook you up. Highly recommend it for those who like Italian and history.
If your in the mood for old school Italian this is the best place you can go!
Why eat anywhere else when there's Ralph's!!! I just went for the first time, and all of us at the table had great service, delicious (incredibly delicious) food (from appetizers through dessert) in a clean and friendly atmosphere. No matter where you live or work, get to Ralph's.
