Delicious Chicken

I have been eating at or have done carry out at Ravanelli's for years. The chicken is great. I also like the potato wedges and salad. A good place for couples,family, friends ,business or solo. The servers are poor performers but the food and price are nice. You may want to stay away during... read more

We recently had the Thursday evening buffet. We were all very happy with not only the price, but the food. The service personnel could use some work. She only came by once to refill our drinks.

I took a United airline pilot & his wife to one of the Rav. Locations knowing he would be comparing his dining experience with many others around the world. He was very much impressed with the food quality and choices available ESPECIALLY at the modest price level. We have known the Rav family and their managers for 45 years &... More

Good flavor, chicken parm is always a great choice! Wish they would have drained pasta a little more, water in bottom of dish diluted the sauce

I've eaten many times at this location. The staff is consistently friendly and the place is clean. The chicken is breasted and tastes delicious. Pasta is also very good. Their tortellini soup is excellent. I've not tried any of the desserts. The only area of concern, is with their buffet. If it is a low volume crowd, such as during... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and had 8 tired people from spending the entire day at the zoo. Bad weather was coming in and we didn't want to be out late. So we sent the two dads in search of food. The hotel staff had a menu for Ravanelli's with a 10% off coupon with our hotel key... More

This place have really good fried chicken. Been here a few times and I like the place. There pasta is also good. They are close to interstate 70 so if you are hungry and traveling through St. Louis/Collinsville it's a great place to stop.

Ravanelli's is ALWAYS great tasting food. It is very good. The fried chicken is some of the best I have ever had. It is close to the interstate, so if you are passing through, stop and eat.

Family & locally owned. Great food. Better than Olive Garden. They give you big portions for your money. Chicken Alfredo is awesome! Restaurant is kind of hidden near convention center.
