Went there for lunch with a family group, and it was terrific! Friendly, homey staff of real people serving good Italian comfort food of very high quality. We had a personal pizza, a panini, and the calimari appetizer (as an entree, and it was plenty), and enjoyed it immensely. This is a local restaurant for us, and we will definitely... More

I wish I had discovered Ralphie's on the first day of our MA/NH trip instead of our last day. It was very difficult picking just one dinner from their expansive menu. I went with the haddock piccata - a fantastic choice. (I know the giant spoon is meant for twisting the linguine into your fork, but the sauce was so... More

The meat sauce is good, but they charge an extra $4 to your meal. Sounds a little steep for ground up hamburger added to the sauce. You can buy a whole pound of meat for that price. My husband loves veal parmesan, but the meat was very tough. The portions are very good for sure.

Went here on a Wednesday evening around 5:30. Got right in, was greeted by the owner and was brought to a table. Service was great, and the food was just as good as when they were in their smaller space. The atmosphere is also nice here. The antipasto is the perfect appetizer to share

I have eaten at Ralphie's many times. I have never had a bad meal. It is family owned and run. The antipasto is a must. Their bread and dressing is fabulous. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.

My friend/companion ( a Salem resident) took me here, but warned me it may be bad for my diabetic diet...LOL Linen napkin service type place. Prices for entrees between $17-30. My bill, without drinks or dessert, came to $52 including tax and tip.
