This would be a very good Northern Italian restaurant anywhere, what a surprise it was to find a restaurant of this quality 1 mile from our hotel in Nogales. We always stop on our trips between Casa Grande and Mazatlan. I especially recommend the the...veal or chicken parmigiana. They are just excellent.More

We went to this restaurant as it was conveniently located across from the hotel we were staying in. We were also not in the mood for Mexican or fast food and they were one of the few that seemed to fit both bills. I had...lasagna while my husband had a pasta dish. My husband was disappointed as he wanted a small portion and the portion sizes were very from. We both, however, enjoyed our meals. Given the portion size disappointment of my husband, I imagine I enjoyed it more than him. The waitresses were bilingual, as appears to be the case, in most of Nogales.More

After a 520 mile drive from Las Vegas, we were looking for a nice restaurant for relaxing over a good meal. There's not much competition in Nogales' not surprising fast-food and Mexican dominated restaurant scene, so Ragazzi was an easy choice. The menu explains the...local history of the now multi-location family-owned / operated business, starting with its Nogales origins in 1996. Service was quick for cocktails and toasted, seasoned breads for swabbing through oil / balsamic. The one negative of this location is the bar service - the "bartender" is untrained in martini cocktails, serving totally unrecognizable drinks not even faintly similar to our ordered classic gin and lemon drop martinis. We gave up even after explaining the simple, common preparation of each drink. Just stick to wine or beer. The kitchen had no similar lack of experience with the entrees. Both were well-prepared with excellent pastas and sauces. The taste profile is a little sweet - maybe reflective of the Northern Italy regional cuisine on the menu's subtitle. I added salt to my chicken marsala to cut the wine's sweetness - we make our dish with the dryer marsala for a better flavor balance. The portions were very generous. The dining area is nicely lighted with a dark decor that creates a serene setting. Patron conversations are muted - the staff banter in Italian around the open kitchen added to the experience of foreign dining. Ragazzi was exactly the right place to relax after our long day on the road, and I doubt we would find a better option in Nogales.More

We come often to Ragazzi to enjoy their delicious lamb shanks - a rare treat in restaurants. Usually the quality is exceptional. Last night, however, the normally perfect sauce was 'way over-salted, almost inedible. Altogether missing was the faint hint of rosemary. The shanks were...cooked beautifully as always, but the sauce ruined the dish. Perhaps just a bad night, or maybe the chef was on vacation?More

Average Italian food, owner added gratuity to the bill, presenting it as the meal charge on the check without letting us, the customers, know that, so not knowing this, we tipped on the presented total....that is very dishonest! We only realized that after we had...left the restaurant and were on our way to Phoenix, adding up the details of the meal and tax, but how many customers add their own totals and even discover that? WE will not only NEVER eat there again, but also make sure we tell everyone we know about this customer rip-off restaurant!More

Nice ambience and good food when you get it. Service could be faster and wait staff a little friendlier. They don't seem to enjoy what they're doing. Lasagna is good as are alfredo dishes.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant several times since moving to the area 2 months ago. Ragazzi’s has become our go to restaurant. We haven’t eaten anything that we didn’t enjoy. Decent wine selection, cocktails have been quite enjoyable. Victor is our favorite...and very personable/ professional waiter. We would highly recommend stoping in for a bite.More

Wife and I visited this restaurant early November we stopped in during lunch to look at the menu and were greeted by a very friendly professional hostess. We made reservations for later that evening the ambience is very relaxing in the service was very high-quality....We thought the prices were very reasonable and the food was definitely handmaid presented in served excellent. Waitress was happy to give us suggestions and opinions and we tried everything she recommended and it was delicious. We won’t be going to Noe Gallas very often but when we do we will definitely return thank you for a great mealMore
