Went there with 2 other couples. All of thought the food was excellent, service was very good, and the staff friendly. Chef even came out to visit for a while (not a lot of customers at that time). You get a 4 course meal with a soup tureen on the side in case you want more and unlimited very tasty... More

Great meal starting with the bread, minestrone soup (so delicious!) and salad. The sauce on my lasagna was plate-licking good. All six people in our party loved the food, the homey atmosphere, and the friendly owner who prepared the entire meal. We have already made plans to return the next time we are in the Dells.

Great homemade Italian food served in a relaxed, quaint atmosphere. Plenty of food as all meals are four-course meals with the first three courses served family style all you want to eat. Loved the experience and the food was fabulous. Friendly wait staff too! Good value. Don't be fooled by the exterior appearance of the restaurant. It's a local favorite!

My husband and I had a bad experience at the Italian restaurant across the street so we decided to try R Place because we read great reviews. We are so glad we did! Atmosphere is cozy and feels like home. I ordered the lasagna with meat sauce and it was wonderful. My husband had the linguini with clam sauce and... More

The decor is so homie, it reminds me of something out of a movie! R place's dishes all came with bread, soup, salad and dessert. The best part is that, once you finished any one of these plates, the waitress would ask if you wanted a refill. The soup was the best part of it all. The chef also came... More

Everytime we come up north we always have to stop at R Place. I absolutely love the atmosphere, the food, and the quality of food you get for the price. The chef really knows what he's doing. We always get the unlimited soup, salad, amd breadsticks! When we do order a dish it's always outstanding. Love love love!!!

1st time here for us and we enjoyed the meal thoroughly. My wife is a Celiac and the Chef went out of his way to put together a great meal for her and kept everything Gluten-free. Full 3 course meal with fresh bread (not for the Mrs. of course :-). Family owned and operated not a factory restaurant like most... More

Dinner at R Place has become a new tradition for our yearly family vacations. We have dined there the last two trips, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere is calm and charming, the servers are very friendly and good-natured, and the food has been excellent. There are countless places to eat in the Dells, but I highly recommend... More

Best Italian food in the Dells, maybe in all of Wisconsin. Been stopping there for over 18 years. Best bargain also with the great soup and salad included with the meal and the refreshing sherbet also. Owner chef always makes sure you are satisfied. He will accommodate any special requests within reason. No need to try other make believe Italian... More

We are a small, family owned casual, fine dining Italian-American restaurant. Our meals are four course, which includes homemade minestrone soup, tossed salad with Italian dressing, your entree and rainbow sherbet. Please plan on a leisurely dinner, as all entrees are made to order. They may take a bit more time, but we are told that they are worth the wait!
