When in the area, try this place. The atmosphere was nice and so is Rhonda. She recommends items to your taste. Very attentive and personable. Try the tomato basil soup! I like my steak just a little more rare than I ordered but it was still good.

My daughter and I came to Rania's for dinner while there for an Ultimate Frisbee tournament. We were seated promptly and were greeted by our server, Rhonda. She was very pleasant and efficient. We received our drinks and bread quickly. We received our entrees in a timely manner. I had Chicken Parmigiana and my daughter had Rania's Classic Trio. Both... More

Went to one of my favorites after it had reopened from a major renovation. The food is better than ever and the service was attentive and prompt. A good friend and I had some well made drinks, a elegantly presented shrimp cocktail, and a fabulous dish served hot by Chef Herbert. The Grilled Fish with Caliente Sauce served with a... More

Rania's features some of the best Italian food I have ever eaten. Each dish is prepared with care and the service is great. From breads, to drinks, to main course, to desserts, you will not be disappointed. It also features a nice atmosphere and occasionally piano music.

Nice atmosphere, complete with piano music; good value and range of foods for all tastes and budgets; good quality food, but service last several visits have been below expectations. (although if you get the lady with the pink hair, she provides superb service and you will not be disappointed)

Slow and intermittent service for the 2nd time in a row, and we now realize it is due to not being seated in their rockstar server's section. When you go in, look for the server with pink hair and demand to be seated in her area and you'll be guaranteed wonderful service to accompany the great food there. The menu... More

We attended a Christmas gathering at this restaurant. Service was delightful and friendly. Buffet was served with several entree choices - not certain if this was common fair, or special for the party - but it was all delicious. Past experiences of good food and cozy decor helped us know this was going to be a good outing. A bit... More

I've been going to Rania's for years. In that time I've never had a bad meal and service has always been consistently good. Everyone there is friendly and they are genuinely glad to see you. Usually the restaurant isn't very busy and that leads to a nice, quiet atmosphere where friends can visit.

I have been here before some years ago and the food was ok, nothing special. Recently, we took some out of town guests for dinner and what an improvement over the last visit. The food was wonderful, everything cooked perfectly and presented well. The service was also great. Drinks were a little pricey for what you got but overall it... More

We go to Rania's every month or so, love the food and usually love the service--but not this time. Our entrees finally arrived an hour and a half after we were seated, and we were so annoyed with the slow service that we had them box it up for us and ate at home. Our appetizers arrived in a reasonable... More
