We have been going to Ralphie's for many years and always walk away happy (and full). They recently moved to a new location and the food is still great. I don't typically order red sauce based meals, even at Italian restaurants because I'm pretty judge-y...More

Food here is great and the service is friendly. It is a smaller, cozy place with a family feel which isn't surprising because it is family owned and operated. The portions are HUGE which is great so you can have something to take home

We had a wonderful meal here on a Saturday night. The restaurant is popular and can be quite busy, but they do not take reservations. Also, some of their dishes are limited, so don't get there too late!

We have been to RALPHIE'S five times now, and I think we're becoming regular guests. The ambiance is lovely, with a warm and cozy atmosphere. Even though the place is always packed, one doesn't have to shout to be heard. I guess you would say...More

We went to Ralphie's and it was closed. Later we see that they are building a restaurant in a different location. Please post the situation so others don't spend their evening driving around. Lesson learned: call ahead. We look forward to trying out Ralphies when they open.
