This "little piece of Italy" is a gem in Surfside, FL. We opened the door for an Italian couple entering...they noticed we were looking at the menu outside and said, "We highly recommend it." They were right. Even though it was afternoon, the white linen, glassware and natty waitstaff led us to believe we might be a bit underdressed in... More

My family has a condo in surfside, fl. Within fifteen minutes there are hundreds of restaurants being only ten minutes drive to south beach. Why would you go! I personally have only been fortunate enough to be to cafe ragazzi 4-5 times but it is enough that I will not search out another Italian restaurant in the area. Let me... More

As frequent vacationers in Surfside (annually for over 20 years) my wife and I have enjoyed Cafe Ragazzi since it first opened as a tiny corner bistro . In that time Ragazzi has expanded somewhat and has had a huge positive impact on Harding Ave. by providing a consistently excellent and sophisticated casual dining experience with a warm and welcoming...

With 3 Italian resturants within a block, this place looked like it had the best vibe. The food was fantastic. The menu had almost too many great sounding options. I had the grilled prawns on safron rissoto and it was out of this world! Service was very good. They could have brought our food out a bit faster as we... More

This restaurant in surfside has oustanding food and service. They will accept your imput about the meal, and it will be served, exactly the way you ordered it. The service is excellent, and even if the restaurant is full, you will not wait for long for your food. We tried the Carpaccio, the Ravioli, the Capellini Pomodoro, and everything was... More

Great location just one block from our hotel. The food was fabulous. The service could not have been better. It is a small crowded place so a bit loud. But, we loved the food.

The Burrata is a must-have! The Pollo Limone was tender and in a nice sauce. But the true hits were the pastas: Cannelloni melted in your mouth and the lasagna was delicious. Calamari looked amazing and was a huge portion. Wish we had saved room for dessert.

Staff friendly, ambiance good, food is great and not over priced. Portions were huge. We all brought home bags. This restaurant can get loud but it is good for couples and families. Will we go back.....you bet!
