This restaurant was suggested by the front desk at the Magnolia. We didn't want to drive anywhere and it was just a couple of blocks away. It was a small, dark place in a corner storefront on Main. We had a caprese salad, lasagna and penne with sausage and vodka sauce-all very fresh and tasty. Bread was warm and none... More

A nice little restaurant with some outdoor seating available. Decor was upscale and the service and servers fit with that image. I had a daily special, linguini fra diavolo with shrimp for $19.95. The pasta was clearly made in house and the sauce was files with small pieces of tomato. I'm used to shrimp in this dish being pan fried;... More

Stopped here for lunch. Had the mussels, pizza, a sandwich, and a salad. Everything was delicious. But what was incredible, was the staff. Paul, our waiter. went out of his way to let us know where to visit, what to see. And Milan, the manager/owner(?) - sorry I don't remember for certain, was so accommodating with making our drinks.

I enjoyed two meals at this restaurant while at a conference. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I enjoyed the neighborhood bar-type atmosphere and was very comfortable.

This restaurant was recommended to me by my hotel nearby. I spent a lovely evening there, quite good food, excellent service and kind attention from all the waiters, but particularly Paul. Being European it is difficult for me to say this is "typical" Italian, it is not. But it is very tasty and a good deal for your money. Excellent:... More

We dropped by for a shared dish after a failed dinner earlier in the evening.  We were both hungry, but not for a full meal.  The waiter was very nice and recommended several specials, we settled on a ravioli dish stuffed with several blended meats with a light vodka cream sauce,  They slpit the plate for us and we savored...

fabulous Italian food! I had the lobster ravioli and a salad that was superb. The fried calamari was cooked to perfection, the crust so flaky and the calamari tasted super fresh. My friend had the lasagna and it was made with a lot of Italian sausage, which she did not particularly care for, so just be aware of that. If... More

We had a wonderful experience at Ravenna's. Our hotel recommended it. It was a short walk in downtown Dallas. The food was delicious. We started with brusetta which was alright...better if cheese had been melted. I had the lemon Parmesan crusted sole which was to die for...and the reason for the four stars. My husband had ling

Ok but not great. Service was good but menu wasn't exciting. Wine is a bit pricey and the standard TV in the background is a bit off putting. No way we would do a return visit.
