Let me start by saying that I travel a lot, and I probably eat over 500 meals a year in restaurants. I should also mention that I have been to Italy more than once. I went to Ralph's with a friend because it was her favorite Italian restaurant near Philly. But she admitted that she hadn't been there in about... More

A bartender at the Marriott, Renee, recommended some awesome places, Ralphs being the best! Renee recommend the mussels and said the mussels with bread is enough in itself. It was delicious, but we didn't stop there. Renee also recommended the veal parm, which my boyfriend ordered and I tasted, and it was good. I ordered lasgana, which ended up being... More

Ralph's is one of the best italian restaurants in the city! The service is top notch and the food is amazing! Old school italian family feel like you are sitting in your grandmother kitchen.

My girlfriend and I came in last week. The service was amazing. Our waiter Al went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect. Our dinner was wonderful, the portions were huge. I order the eggplant parm which was out of this world. All of the staff were very pleasent. Great place to grab dinner.

We were excited to visit Ralphs but won't be going back. We were 15 minutes late for our reservation...we did call and let them know we were trying our best to get there with the heavy traffic. When we arrived...they were rude. We were completely rushed through our meal from that point on. The waiter was irritated when we asked... More

We had a large group, seated at two tables. The waitress would not issue separate checks, so of course paying the bill was a major problem. The tomato and mozzarella salad had small little pieces of cheese and an excessive amount of balsamic vinegar. The eggplant parm was mush. The ravioli was good, but lukewarm. The shrimp scampi over penne... More
