Pleasantly Surprised.

Very good home style Italian Food in a new and appealing restaurant! The wine list is limited, but the selections are good and reasonably priced. Appetizers are tasty and entree portions plentiful. Be prepared to bring home a meal for later. Service was timely and pleasant.

Food was great and you definitely get what you pay for. You will most likely be bringing home leftovers. Their new location is very nice, but parking can be tough. Just beat the rush by getting there at 4:30. The fra diavolo sauce wasn't too spicy and complement the mussels and spaghetti I got very well. I was very impressed... More

Party of 3 - nobody crazy about food.....very bland. Calamari appetizer was good. Pasta dishes could be better, especially for an Italian restaurant. This was my second visit. First visit was average so I thought I'd give it a second chance. Won't return again.

My wife and I had lunch at Ralphie's today. The service was prompt and courteous. The food was good Italian home style cooking. The servings were generous and taking home what we did not eat was not a problem. I really liked my veal parm sandwich and my wife thought her Caesar salad was fine.

In todays crazy world, its tough to find the old school restaurants we all grew up with. With that said, Ralphie's comes real close to those memories! The restaurant has moved up the street next to Fords Flowers. The food is fantastic, authentic Italiano! Full bar and wonderful staff. They fall short of 5 stars, because whoever planned the new...

Ralphie's moved to a larger and more relaxing atmosphere in Salem. They did not sacrifice food quality when they moved. The meals were still very tasty with large portions at a very good price. Would highly recommend this new location.

Relaxing family casual atmosphere with an appealing menu but my focus was on their tripe dish, which is a time consuming delicacy not often seen on typical Italian American restaurant menus. We were told that the owner chef personally prepares this dish from a recipe handed over from his mother... Tripe has to be prepared in a certain way in... More

Went With my husband, mother, 14 & 7 year old sons (I was also 8 mos pregnant) for dinner. I ordered the eggplant parm, husband ordered chicken piccata & they were delicious. The eggplant was both moist & crispy, with the perfect amount of breading. Husband said the same thing about the chicken piccata. 14 year old had spaghetti &... More

We were visiting friends in Southern NH and they suggested this new Italiam restaurant called Charlie's. It was Sunday night and there weren't too many people in the restaurant. I ordered the chicken cacciatore after making sure that the chicken was actually cooked in the cacciatore. It came with choice of pasta- I chose linguini. When the food arrived, I... More
