Lunch with my son

The food was very good and very friendly staff. The pies in the pie counter looked very good but we did not have any.

The food was a little too much like cafeteria food. The chicken was excellent but the pasta had no real flavor. I would say the food was OK, but I do not know if I would search out the restaurant again. We went because it was next to our hotel.

I cannot say enough about the food and service at Ravanelli's. Every meal that I have ever had here has been without compare. From the salads to the main dishes, every single meal is prepared to perfection. The quality of the ingredients is superb and the final products absolutely delicious. Prices are moderately high, but the food is well worth... More

By far this is the best chicken I've ever eaten. Great casual family place. The desserts are wonderful as well. Friendly staff and prompt service are part of this great place. Take your friends and family but be prepared to wait if you don't have reservations. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

We ate at Ravanelli's as part of a large group of family, and we had a great time. Delicious country- style food hit the spot. My husband ordered their specialty, pressure- fried chicken, and it was excellent. I ordered a pasta bowl, which was also wonderful. If you order a salad, you've got to try their house made ranch dressing.... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the metro east. Food is good time and time again. Rarely do we have a disappointing meal here. My only complaint would be a steep increase in menu prices recently. One of the pasta entrées I used to get was $9.99, then went up to $11.99, and now it is $16.99!!!! That... More

Prior to leaving Orlando for St Louis I was told numerous things to do while I was here. One of which was have Toasted Ravioli's. When we pulled up to the hotel I noticed a restaurant hidden behind it. It didn't seem like much but then it popped up during a google search of nearby places. We stopped in &... More

It's a favorite in the area by all the locals. Everybody raves about the chicken, but their Italian food is all wonderful. I eat there regularly, and have never found a single dish I did not like. Prices are reasonable as well.

After reading some of the reviews we were a bit nervous about trying this restaurant out. We were even more hesitant when the hostess told us that it would be an hour wait for our party of six. There was nobody else waiting! My brother in law spoke to the hostess pointing this fact out and we were seated in... More
