Very Tasty!

There were six of us for lunch on Sunday and we were seated in a nice nook area. Our server did an excellent job in filling our orders and in keeping up with drink refills, more breadsticks etc.....

In a word - bland. Not bad - just bland We have tried several pasta, chicken, and salad orders - all seemed unremarkable to us. What a missed opportunity. Quantity and low prices seem to have taken precedence over taste. We would rather spend a few bucks more and have a tasty meal.

Ragazzi's is an Italian restaurant along the lines of Olive Garden. They have a variety of lunch specials in the $7-9 range that include a drink, unlimited salad, and bread sticks.....a great value. The food is good and always served hot. Service is efficient and friendly.

I have been going to Ragazzis for many years. I recently made reservations for 25 of us, they were able to accommodate us without any problems. Our service was outstanding, nice and friendly staff from the moment we walked in and clean. Our food was outstanding, lots of choices on the menu, pasta, chicken, seafood and steak options were available.... More

Have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Service is great, food is absolutely delicious and servings are huge- we can never eat everything. I would go there for their salads alone. If you like Olive Garden, you will love Ragazzi's. Italian food at its best.

Have eaten at hundreds of Italian restaurants and this is certainly one of the best! Marinara very fresh and delicious. Fettucini Alfredo with chicken was amazing. Chicken was hand breaded. Salad was wonderful. Mozzarella sticks are like logs. HUGE! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! !

Traveling up the Blue Ridge Parkway and needed a stopping point. Happened upon a great pasta place...Ragazzi's. Prices were very fair. Marinara was full of fresh basil. Sausages were grilled and nicely spiced. Great place beyond the mall and chain restaurants. Adam our server in the bar area was fantastic. He was so friendly and attentive and between business was...

Please do yourself a favor and do not eat here. To be honest, no one really expects a quality meal at one of these cheesy Italian chains, but this particular Ragazzi's was beyond horrible. My main course was literally inedible. The pasta tasted like rubber and the chicken was... well, I'm pretty sure it wasn't chicken. It's texture led me... More

A very large, casual-style Italian eatery. Noisy and busy, but not annoyingly so. A wide selection of typical Italian fare. The portions were generous, and the meals were good, but not great. Fairly low prices. For the area, it was probably a good choice.
