Food was great and the atmosphere was so relaxing and elegant. The waiter was helpful and diligent. We would recommend this restaurant to others. Probable not the best place for kids though.

Great facility. Nice staff. Mgr had a hard time opening the wine. Waitress insisted that we drink their sparkling water ( for a fee). She saved herself w/ positive energy rest of the evening. Calamari looked and tasted like fish sticks (seriously NOT calamari). Pipini only had 3 shrimp and three shellfish . Good broth. Tasty bread. Two of three pasta dishes were judged as “ok, not memorable, overpriced”. A couple of Good Ruffino wines saved the evening. We’d probably go back someday while visiting after they get a little better with their menu.

I firmly believe all new restaurants should be given a little grace due to working out the “kinks”, with that being said our meal was pretty horrible. Hair in food, under cooked noodles. Undercooked asparagus. Under cooked potatoes. I refuse to write off a restaurant due to one bad experience. The management staff was attentive and I was to believe they will remedy the situation. I will give them one more chance in a few months and hopefully I am able to change this review to a positive one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Ramata Italian in Branson. Our server, Ashley, was outstanding. We are a laughing hearty kind of group and she rolled with our punches to keep us laughing. The decor, ambiance and service were wonderful. The food was very good for three of us (fettuccini alfredo for two of us and shrimp scampi), but the fourth person had the fried calamari which was lacking flavor.
The bread we were initially served was rock hard, but as soon as I brought it to Ashley's attention, she promptly replaced it with fresh-out-of-the-oven delicious bread. The lunch menu is considerably less expensive and yet portions were satisfying. After a year of visiting restaurants who struggled to keep up their standard level of service due to staffing issues, it was a pleasant surprise to once again enjoy our favorite thing to do, eating out. Everyone enjoyed our visit and we look forward to our next visit.

I absolutely loved this place! I ordered the Chicken Piccata and it was AMAZING! I would've gave this restaurant a 5 star, if it were totally up to me. My husband ordered the Fillet Modiga and didn't think it was the best. I tasted it and thought it was good. He said it just needed a little bit more flavor for him to give a 5 star.
Our waitress was amazing. Such a friendly girl. Loved how absolutely beautiful this place was! I can't wait to come back in Spring, so we can eat outdoors!

The restaurant itself is very pretty. The service was great, the wait person was very personable. The food is not fine dining, average at best. It's my understanding that staffing is an issue so they may get the kinks worked out.

We went in for lunch. Good menu. Food was very good. A little thing but noteworthy: Why is there not garlic bread on the menu? I have never really been to an Italian restaurant I just had white rolls. Not a dealbreaker but noteworthy. Also the prices were very good for lunch although the wine prices beware. For a very low end wine it is $14-$20 per glass. And this is for like a 6 ounce pour. These are bottles that are $10. A bit stiff I would say.
We would go back but scale back to one glass of wine or possibly water. L

Fabulous ambiance, amazing service, although they didn't have a bottle of wine 🍷 on the menu, they suggested substituting that for an upgraded bottle at the same price which perfectly accompanied the delicious meal. Portions were large, so we split an entree & salad & they divided for us & brought in separate plates, without an up charge, which was lovely. The open kitchen, fireplaces, decor, & music selection of Sinatra hits made us feel like we were in NY-great place to take friends - we will be back 🍾

Bread was served with solid cold butter instead of Italian seasoning and Olive oil. Bread was somewhat plain. When food finally came out, 30 minutes later, it was anything but hot. Very lukewarm, almost to cold to enjoy. We had tea, salad that we split, appetizer and lasagna and veal parmesan. It came to 82.00 dollars. It was the lunch menu so not much to choose from. Very disappointed. Will not go back. Only good thing was service.

We waited 90 minutes for our food which was a little frustrating. Our server explained "as you can see, we only have two cooks" which I can empathize with how the work force is now but we also had a reservation and I would hope that they would limit walk in and reservations according to their staffing.

My dad ordered the Filet and on the menu it is described as medallions and what came out where strips of meat. The server explained that there was a menu change due to customer feedback and they are a "new restaurant". My chicken was good but my fettuccine alfredo sauce was cold and the cream was starting to separate. The restaurant manager came and took the filet off our bill and gave us free dessert but to be honest at that time we were quite frustrated. We got there at 5:30 and left at 7:45 by the time we paid.

It was extremely disappointing and what was supposed to be a special night left our family upset and frustrated. I can appreciate the effort that was made to try and make it right but I think the customer service could have been better, we were only offered everything after we expressed great frustration.

It's really difficult to upscale Italian food. During this visit we had several different pastas, some with cream based sauces and some with tomato based sauces as well as a couple of pizzas. The restaurant was understaffed (which is probably not their fault) so service was slow. They were out of several ingredients so they were substituting rigatoni for several of the pastas. In the end, rigatoni and tortellini are just not the same. Most of the pasta was served cold and the pizzas sat under the warmer for at least 10 minutes. That is one of the drawbacks of having a kitchen the diners can see. Cream sauce broke during cooking so it looked like scrambled eggs in cream. Salads were over dressed and some of the dishes were swimming in oil. Maybe they were having a bad day but based on the price, you just can't have bad days. There was no offer to remove poorly cooked or cold dishes from our bill.
On the upside, the inside was beautiful. However, it needs some sound deadening to absorb some of the background noise and echo. Sorry to leave this review because the town needs some upscale dining. This could be it but it needs some polish or a different concept.

I took my wife here for her birthday and overall we enjoyed it. I ordered the FILLET MODIGA. The steak was amazing, but the Sicilian Potatoes that came with the meal were not the best things to eat. The tasted old, dry, and bland. Too be honest, if it wasn't for everything else that was great with the evening I would have said that it could have ruined my night. A couple of other things that could ruin anyone else's night, would have been that the bread was hard and stale tasting and that the meal took close to 50 minutes to prepare. We were not in a hurry so we were ok with how long it took to get our meals. We will be back and we understand sometimes things just don't go the way that they need to go. Our server and the staff were very friendly.

We were a bit hesitant to try Ramata because of some of the reviews, but I am so glad we did. We had a wonderful experience. The food was great, our server was amazing and the atmosphere was very nice and well designed! They also had a really neat patio area. I will say there was a bit of a wait for our food, but as parents out for a date it was nice to not feel rushed through a meal. As a new restaurant it can take some time to work through some of the kinks, but they are well on their way and we will definitely be back!

It's only been open 2 weeks but my wife's pizza was undercooked, the caprese salad had no flavor, and the Pappardelle Olio was more bland tasting the Kraft Mac N Cheese. Hopefully it'll get better in the next few months, but right now it's overpriced for the quality. We'll give it another chance in a few months and hopefully it's better then.
