If you had an Italian grandma! Always an adventure going to Ralph's. Parking can be a pain, but the food is well worth it. We have been going here for years, and have taken friends and family when they are in town. Situated in a row house in South Philly, the seating can be cramped, but for us, that's part of the experience. The wait staff is old school and while service can be a bit slow on a busy night, they know what they are doing and keep the food moving. I recommend reservations. The menu is basic Italian, but in a very homemade style. I personally love the veal with artichokes and get it every time I go. Based on other people we've taken, you can't go wrong with the veal. The cannoli cake is also a favorite. Always a fun and amusing night out as long as you chill and enjoy the ride.
