Food was above average, nothing special. Service was good, not great. Lots of history. Definitely worth going to.

Friendly staff at tables The staff was very efficient at all phases from the chef to al other faces of production The prices were more than fair!!! The quality ingredients reflect in the taste, You can also taste the passion of the chef! Awesome dessert choices They found me a seat for me and my date we were finishing some shopping and wearing casual clothing I has a blast.

Went for dinner this evening. Food was good, the service was bad. The waiter was extremely rude.

Years ago we had a booth exhibition at the convention center and I asked about local restaurants. Ralph's was highly recommended so we ate there the first night, the second night, the third night and the fourth. My colleague and I had the veal rollatini all four was that good. Try to get it from another Italian restaurant! I've taken my entire family there for the same dish several times when I lived in was worth the trip. Only problem was at the time they were cash only and the first night was embarrassing. I understand they accept credit cards now.

A great place for the classics. Historically relevant too! This place is an icon

Such a disappointment. BF and I visiting Philly on a whim and heard all the rave about this place. Totally disappointed!! I had veal parm (over cooked and dry) and he had gnocchi (no flavor at all) and some other pasta dish that was totally forgettable. The service was also not great. We went during lunch and the place was empty....I should have known. Don't feel bad if you haven't eaten here, believe me, you're not missing anything! I've had better veal parm at Olive Garden!!
