I absolutely love this little gem of an italian restaurant!!! Infact they are relocating to a brand new location after 30 years because they need a larger space, and there is such a big demand for seating, for their delicious food. I know the grandmother used to cook all the food, don't know if she still does, but the legacy... More

A small intimate space decorated in a very homey style. Serving food that resembles dishes coming out of your Italian grandmother's kitchen. Not fancy, but it is good and reasonably priced. No pretentions here. What you see is what you get. Try it you might like it. If you have a big appetite, this place will take care of you... More

This evening I "treated" my Mom, sister and her husband to dinner at Ralphie's. The food was horrible. I can't believe there was a real cook/chef in the kitchen. The bread basket contained 2 large baguettes. One was fine, the other was stale. The butter was hard. The salads and soups were good. The entrees were HORRIBLE! Mom and I... More

Very small but clean and always busy when I visit. Family run place, a lot of regulars , the owners enjoy visiting them. My favorite is chicken parm with penne. Enjoy the italian music playing in the backround.

Ralphie's is a very small Italian eatery hidden in a gas station strip mall that you would have to be looking for to find. Inside, the place is fairly small, and if you have a large party, you'll need to call in to get a seat. The menu is traditional Italian with lots pf parmigiana, meatballs, and pasta. Simple but...

I've eaten at this restaurant a few times. There isn't a lot of space in this restaurant. Overall the food is ok. I've eaten spaghetti and sausage or spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs are very large but not flavorful enough for me. The pasta sauce is not my favorite as it's not thick enough nor does it have the Italian... More
