They have a special way of fixing their chicken and it is so good! They started in Granite City and now are here as well as Fairview Heights. Try it and guaranteed you will like it and be BACK FOR SECONDS!!!

This is an Italian restaurant that has a large menu with something for everyone. We especially liked that the kid's options included smaller portions of regular menu items (spaghetti, raviolis, etc) instead of the typical hamburgers and chicken fingers listed on most kid's menus. Our food was excellent, but be aware that the portions are huge and many entrees can... More

Really good food. Can't go wrong with anything Italian from the menu. Sunday buffet is nothing short of amazing. A really great place for couples (including dates) or families. The bakery items are take home MUST. Nothing but good things to say.

Ravanellis was a Different Pasta Experience. I took my Family here Expecting The Best Pasta in The Saint Louis Area: Instead I was totally Disappointed: The Pasta was Over Cooked and The Marination was Over Sauced: This was a Disappointment! Ravenellis was not a true Pasta Experience:

Great buffet with fried chicken, soup, Pizza , Pizza, mostacholi, salad bar, etc. Good service and always quick to get in and out. It is so successful because it is a good value and ownership or management is always on hand and visible.

When we are in Collinsville, we visit Ravanelli's! My momma introduced us to the local chain that has been around since 1964. Over the years, we have tried many items from the menu and have not been disappointed. Pasta, pizza, fish, salad and the deserts are great! Wow if you like a rich dessert, try the Snickers Pie: outstanding!

The family meals to go are very good and the kids really like the food! Give them a try and you will be pleased. Especially with the chicken.

Great fried chicken to say the least. I've never left hungry or disappointed. Good food and good service. I hear the buffet is good but I never seem to be there on the right day or at the right time. #de-lish

I love their fried chicken. Great place to go and eat a home cooked meal without cooking yourself. Desserts are phenomenal. Usually a very busy place, and understandably so. You will enjoy though.

You always look for that place that has the great homestyle taste and feel, but great service as well. My family and I were all taken away but how much we loved it here. We are from oklahoma but will return when we can. Thank you ravanellis for the amazing memories and time. If you can and have the opportunity... More

Although it serves Italian food it also has some of the best fried chicken I have eaten. The desserts are fabulous and I believe they also serve seafood
