They will be moving north to a new building

Decent prices, decent food. I am not usually a fan of Italian food, but here I truly enjoy the food. Simple and straight forward. Owners are very amicable, and I have been frequenting Ralphie's for quite a few years now. They are moving just north of Barnes and Noble on Rte 28 and I cannot wait... read more

Ralphies closed last year, but according to their Facebook page, they broke ground in November, 2014 and are building a new restaurant at 91 South Broadway, Salem, NH. I'm sure that this horrific winter set them back, but I am looking forward to their opening.

It's been a while since I went to Ralphie's. Crowded small restaurant, but friendly. Great food at a reasonable price. They are in the process of building a new restaurant and I look forward to returning to this delightful restaurant.

I have been to this small establishment many times. The food just keeps bringing me back. I find it difficult to find a good Italian sauce when I go out to dinner. I am Italian and have been spoiled with homemade sause all my life. This sause here hits the right spot!!! Salad dressing is their own. Portion are good... More

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

This is a family owend very small Italian restaurant that is located in a strip mall. The food is good and the service is great. Lots of choices on their menu with daily specials very reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly. The owner Lisa is a sweetheart she is very dedicated to her customers. I would recommend this restaurant... More

Love this place the best Italian outside of Boston, there are more expensive places in the area but if you want great traditional Italian it cant be beat. Its small good service, it a family place you can go in jeans and not be out of place. The sauce is delicious can sometimes be watery. But they have great chicken... More
