Great old fashioned Italian cuisine served in abundant portions using very high quality ingredients. Lots of old school type of servers, schmoozing and glad handing patrons. Great drinks too!

Celebrated my son’s birthday. Had a great table, great food and great wine. Service was spot on. Joey Roastbeef was a great ambassador for the restaurant. We loved it.

So much fun at Rao's - you are greeted immediately by the more than friendly "Beef" - the maitre'd - straight out of central casting and warm as can be. Service is attentive and ambience old school. Not to miss: the meatballs and lemon chicken, and ANY pasta - all terrific.

I did not know what to expect. The service was good, the ambiance was good, the food was good and no one goes away hungry. I understand the appeal of the place having been there and would gladly recommend it to others. We brought our own wine and the corkage fee was reasonable ($30 for two bottles of expensive wine)
