Description: Although it serves Italian food it also has some of the best fried chicken I have eaten. The desserts are fabulous and I believe they also serve seafood

The food is always plentiful and a variety of items on the menu. Their specialty is a home style fried chicken, with a crunchy skin and lightly spiced. They also have a variety of italian pasta dishes including a delicious lasagna. The wait staff always seems pleasant and helpful. The meals are reasonably priced and usually include bread and salad... More

We had the all you can eat fried chicken, a massive bacon cheeseburger, ravioli, & chicken fried steak at our table. Everything was very good! You've gotta leave room for their wide variety of delicious pies calling your name as you enter this restaurant!

I highly recommend the chicken and their pies are to die for. However, I find it difficult to make myself eat there because the acoustics are pretty bad. I find that carry-out is the best option for me. I used to really enjoy their "King Salad", but they seem to have cut back on the toppings, making it less like... More

My wife and I visited Ravanelli's twice in late March. I usually post reviews quickly, but I've been struggling with this one. We really wanted to like this place, but it didn't happen. We had seen glowing reviews on TA and thought this would be right for us while visiting Collinsville. The first visit was a Friday in Lent. A... More

We thought we would stop here for drinks and appetizers. But it is really a chicken restaurant for families. The dinners were reasonable and looked good. We found their bar was limited to beer and wine. No chianti in an Italian restaurant? The waiter knew nothing about the wine they had. The appetizer platter we had was very good, except... More

I went on a buffet night and it was the first Italian buffet I had ever been to. I love Italian food and it did not disappoint. There was a ziti with red sauce, a white sauce pasta dish, fish, steak, chicken, two types of salad and a few side dishes and all for $10.99. It was well worth the... More

I'd eaten at the Granite City location years ago, but the buffet at this location was recommended. Ate there for the first time tonight. I'm guessing that items ordered off the menu are better, because the only 'hot' items on the buffet that were actually hot were the chicken (if a piece was picked from the bottom), the rigatoni, and...

We were a party of 7 without reservations, before a child's college graduation. We were seated immediately, but did have to wait a while on the food. We still had plenty of time to make it to the graduation and the food was delicious! We enjoyed the all-you-can eat fried chicken dinner. The fried chicken was awesome, as were the... More
