"Ralph's is a great place to visit if you are from out of town or if you are entertaining visitors who want to get a South Philly Italian vibe. It's everything a tourist would want in an Italian restaurant off the Italian Market. Great family spot."

"The food was excellent as was the service. I asked waiter what did he suggest for my dinner, and, he said their signature dish was Veal Parmigiana. That is what I got and it was the best I have ever had! Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal just as much!
The waiter could not have been more attentive. All in all a great evening!

"Ralph's was amazing. As an Italian, I can honestly say it was some of the best italian food I've had in the area. Every single meal was delicious, portions were great, and the prices were amazing for the quality received. Server was a little lackluster, but it's okay - some people have their days. I would definitely return and want to try everything on their menu eventually."

"Ralph's has been here for over 100 years so they must be doing something right. There were four of us we ordered 2 appetizers of calamari and clams casino. The calamari is like none you ever had, not fried but sauteed in red gravy and served in a bowl like that, rings only and so good! Now my favorite, I do not eat clams casino but my three dinner guests loved them, saying they were perfect because they used small neck clams. All of us ordered something different from the special, flounder with spinach and crab meat, the canneloni, the osso bucco and the braicole. I had had the osso bucco which was amazing, no knife needed, melt in your mouth! They canneloni was amazing but the braicole made me second guess my order. All I know is next time we go to Ralph's (hopefully within the next few weeks) I will definately get the braicole.
Ralph's is in a three story house is south Philly with no elevator. If you cannot make the stairs, then when you make reservations ask for the first floor. The second floor decible level is ridiculously loud, but the third floor is a dream. Wonderful, intimate area, when we go again I will be requesting a third floor table. Listen, if you like good, homestyle Italian food and want to feel like you are back in your Nonna's house THIS is the place to go. This is not french style fine dining so your servers are relaxed and very friendly, like they're your cousins serving you for the night, Wonderful atmosphere, very Philly. Go, Eat, ENJOY!

"We were going out for an average Saturday night dinner and we discovered Ralph's. A tiny older decor Italian restaurant with excellent martinis and good food. We had a great younger waitress who gave us recommendations since we had never been there. They were very accommodating with our special requests for dinner and were very attentive to all our needs. I would highly recommend going to Ralph's for some good Italian food and some strong drinks!"

"This is very good basic Italian food. The portions are large. One can sense the family nature of the place. I felt like I was eating in the kitchen with my friends."

"We have never had a bad meal at Ralph's. Everything is delicious. Our only wish is for a small side salad to be offered on the menu."

"I anxiously awaited the gnocchi and was disappointed; they were rubbery beyond belief. My husband liked the tripe very much though. The available wines were one choice per varietal, which as I looked at the bar was a cheap jug. I guess I expected high-end and what we got was a general Italian restaurant. It wasn't bad, I just expected much more. Service was excellent; they couldn't have been better."

"Ralph's is not your molecular gastronomy fad of the week kind of place...not a sous vide, cold smoked, small plate in sight. But if you want solid, traditional southern Italian -- I'm talking pasta/'gravy'/veal/mussels kinda place, Ralph's is for you. The tables are small and close together...if you don't want to hear the conversation next to you, go elsewhere. The folks waiting at the door will be happy you did. :-) Oh, and don't fill up on the pre-meal bread (thought they'll gladly bring more). Believe me, you're gonna want it to sop up every last drop of whatever sauce came with your meal. It's the place your Nonna would recognize as a restaurant, and I pray it always that way."

"Great traditional Italian food in the heart of South Philly! A little crowded (close) and pricey but that goes with the territory. Parking is a challenge! Mangia!"
