“Fun and tasty”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We enjoyed a relaxed and casual dinner here yesterday evening. The staff were friendly and welcoming and they have a cheerful atmosphere created in the restaurant. We ordered two pizzas, they'revery tasty but rather large, one to share would have been enough to fill us. We asked to take what we couldn't eat to go and this was no problem. We shared a tiramisu for dessert and it was really yummy. Overall it was an enjoyable meal.

“Mama's kitchen”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

This small bistro is a must. It is like walking in to an Italian family's front room. The smells are amazing and the welcome is just unblievable, fantastic. Beware if you order the calzoni pizza.... when the waiter laughs and the locals go quiet it is for good reason. You'll see when it arrives! But do order one... it is awesome.

“What a delight! A true Italian fun experience with marvellous authentic cuisine”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Having been welcomed warmly by the owner and seated promptly it is clear the customer is valued in Ragazzi. What a atmosphere. The place was full of energy.
We ordered a glass of a marvellous house wine which came in oversized wine glasses ( why do other places miss out on this detail of a wonderful glass to serve wine, so makes it special)
Our starters of pasta with fresh clams,seasoned beautifully and served hot was a triumph. Served with thin pizza bread, it hit the spot. Our mains of fillet steak and fresh cod with mussels were also a joy . Tender , fresh and mouth watering. Well done chef!
Our meal climaxed with a tiramisu and pannacotta with summer berries, expressos on the side. Wonderful!
Value for money , delightful food and supreme service! We will be back! :-))

“Good fun and food is not bad..”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Been here a few times as a visitor to Dalkey but first time back as a resident and it is just as good.

Very Italian ambiance, nutty waiters who charge about making you feel at home. 'Early Bird Menu' is good value, choose from almost anything on the menu for €19 for two courses. Food is good, not amazing (although my chicken in a tomato, chilli sauce was very good) but it is more than made up for by a real, relaxed, fun eating experience.

I have yet to try the pizza, next time in..

Give it a try, it's worth it...

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

After looking through all the options on tripadvisor and asking advice at the hotel, we decided to give Ragazzi's a go. We were welcomed in and efficiently seated and drinks brought to us. The menu was a little limited (only a little!) but the quality was outstanding. We waited just long enough for it to have been freshly prepared and cooked and the taste was terrific. The decor is rustic but totally in keeping with the style and price. If you want a really good value, traditional italian meal, you can't go wrong in choosing this wonderful gem. BTW the house white wine was sensational!!!
