This was our first visit to Ralphie's but will not be our last. We stopped in for lunch which turned out to be a wonderful experience. The menu was huge and so were the portions. My flatbread pizza was delicious and large enough for at least two people. The chicken parm was perfectly prepared and a very large portion. The... More

Ordered takeot, which was a first, ordered the seafood chowder which was excellent, it was 7.50 for a large maybe about 10 ounces. Not to thick but loaded with fish, shrimp and clams. We also ordered the Shrimp and Scallop Fra Diavlo for $20. There were two shrimp and two scallops and a pound of pasta. I thought this was... More

Stoped here on a a trip last summer and was generally disappointed with the food quality! I generally seek out and try any and all Italian Venues that I can find! None of us were impressed with the tastes of the tomato sauce, nor the textures of the pasta!! I always seek out extra al dente pasta and did not... More

We had been wanting to visit Ralphie's Café Italiano but found the parking lot packed every time we drove by. We finally went early one week night and were able to be seated immediately. We have been there twice now and both times had excellent service from two different waitresses. It appears to be a family place as there were... More

We have been to RALPHIE'S five times now, and I think we're becoming regular guests. The ambiance is lovely, with a warm and cozy atmosphere. Even though the place is always packed, one doesn't have to shout to be heard. I guess you would say that the restaurant has done a very good job of soundproofing the whole dining area.... More

My wife is a big fan of another Italian restaurant located in the southern part of Salem on route 28. In looking to try something new we decided to give Ralphie's a try. We opted to sit at the bar which we found to be inviting and had no complaints with our server who was very pleasant. We started out... More

It was good. Great service , great food and great portions. If I could do 4 & 1/2 stars, I would. I couldn't give the fifth star because of poor atmosphere. Will Go Back!!

We go to Ralphie's regularly. The food is awesome, the portions are huge and the price is reasonable, especially considering the amount of food you get. The food reminds me of the home style Italian food my mom and grandmas used to make, and that is high praise. My wife and I always sit at the bar because Kathy the... More

The inside of the restaurant is nice. We thought we would be underdressed going in, but were happy to find that it is very casual and comfortable inside. My husband and I each ordered the chicken parm and shared a side of meatballs. The meatballs were each the size of a tennis ball! They were good. Our chicken parm was... More
