Cafe Ragazzi Restaurant
Space is one thing you will not find at this tiny, 40-seat trattoria. But you will find warm, personal service, delicious food, and low prices. Homemade bread, Italian meat and fish staplessuch as salmon with sauteed radicchio, and fabulous pastas keep customers coming back for more. Try the spinach-and-cheese cannelloni or the meaty lasagna. The cafe has the comfortably crowded ambience of a neighborhood trattoria. You find a mixed crowd here consisting of primarily the younger set, and the occasional family.
OK, friends from Germany want Italian, they described Ragazzi 'New Jersey' not Italian, they should know (they own an apt in Rome).
Felt a bit pressured, the Soprano's types that American people think is Italian abound at this place, is it a different owner from when I used to go twice a month? Expansion ruins another local hang out.
As always when a place expands don't even think about returning, lost all its charm, where is the 'normal' Italian man who used to serve me red wine while I waited?
Guests wanted meat as they do not do carbs after noon. Five out of six 'carni' choices were veal so we asked the waiter about the specials hoping they had other 'carni' choices, YES, two other veal dishes!!!!!...they decided to have veal.
What happened to the prices? Italian food should be simple and cheapish, these people are thieves.
You know if everyone is not drinking red wine it would be nice to have a selection by the glass.....nameless varietals are on offer, pinot grigio seemed old, funny color, not fresh or crisp or fruity.
Pasta fagiol soup offered by waiter turned out not to be available so we chose the alternate 'lentil', yeah it was a very good try at a canned version, I mean, is that a common Italian soup?....look, if you are charging those prices you gotta be on your game, I want something that a chef has made...or at least been close to.
Chicken parmigian for mid twenties price. I cook, I only choose the best ingredients, no commitment to describing the type of chicken, was it organic free range from a trusted purveyor, NO, just a high price with a chunk of ordinary cheese. This place stinks of Cosco!!
Hey Ragazzi, what is it with the veal, you had a freezer full going bad or something.
My guests are all professionals and with Euros to spend to boot, they just wanted a progressive place to enjoy a healthy dinner, i was a bit embarrassed......close half the restaurant and go back to how you used to be, at least you never felt ripped off if things were sub par.
Zero stars, would never go back, rubbish.
Love the ambiance, the service and the most important factor of course, the great food!!!!!!!!!!The ambiance is like being invited for a happy family dinner where everyone is happy to be there!Excellent in every size form and description!
I thought the people were very friendly, especially the waitresses,but as soon as the owner came in, I know he means well, everything went chaotic. I love the food there, and will still go to eat there, but having an obnoxious guy come and try to handle an entire business just wont do. And there needs to be seats outside if people are expected to wait.
The restaurant appeared understaffed, even though it wasn't very busy. We waited a good 15 minutes for the menus, I even thought of leaving. We ordered a salad which arrived with much lettuce and a little limp. The shrimp order came with only four rather small shrimp. I mentioned it to the waiter and he just shrugged his shoulders. From that point on, the whole meal went downhill. We didn't bother dessert!!!
