“Nice Italian worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

If you are in the neighbourhood and want an Italian restaurant this is a nice choice.
The food was really good and big pasta portions. The service was very high and fast.
If you are into more expensive wines you can find some and the prices are very low so you can actually do a bargain.

“Fantastic Food, Giant Portions, Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Located in Surfside this great Italian restaurant has a varied menu and reasonable prices along with a good wine list Great fresh baked bread basket good choice of entrees. I had the Vitello Parmigiana at 25.95 which was Lightly breaded veal with marinara sauce and topped with mozzarella cheese. The portion was huge, instead of thinly sliced veal it was a thick cut and really good and tender. My wife had the Saltinboca alla Romana also at 25.95 Tender scallops of veal with prosciutto di Parma, red wine, in a bed of sautéed spinach Served with vegetables and potatoes or pasta

I wish I could tell you about the desserts but i was so full from the entree we didn't make it ti dessert. We will definitely visit again!

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Our first night in Surfside, we stumbled upon this restaurant, and almost didn't stay. On the weekends, it is very crowded and loud. We decided to stay and eat outside. OMG, and I happy that we made that choice.

It started with the bread that they brought to the table. So delicious. Then came our main dishes. We had ordered the ravioli. The preparation was excellent. I could tell that everything had been made fresh. Such a delightful experience. The cream sauce was so light and perfect.

Café Ragazzi is one of those restaurants where you want to try everything on the menu, because you know that it will be a great experience. If you are in the area, and enjoy Italian food, this is the restaurant to try.

“WOW, WHAT A GREAT PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This "little piece of Italy" is a gem in Surfside, FL. We opened the door for an Italian couple entering...they noticed we were looking at the menu outside and said, "We highly recommend it." They were right. Even though it was afternoon, the white linen, glassware and natty waitstaff led us to believe we might be a bit underdressed in "tourist casual", but the waiter/host made us immediately feel at home. The wine and light lunch, topped off with tiramisu and espresso was just exactly the correct compliment to the World Cup playing on the large screen TV in the bar area. It was a little bit of heaven, for anyone who loves Italy. To top it off, even though we did not notice nor did we complain about any of the service being slow (we weren't in any hurry to get in and out) the manager gave us the tiramisu on-the-house because "of our wait"...we took it. Highly recommended for lunch and late dinner, especially. Their pasta is wickedly good.
