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

A recent visit to Ralphie's was a really nice surprise. The restaurant is outfitted with dark wood booths as well as tables with classic red-checkered tablecloths. Water and bread are served right away, and the menu is enormous. I opted for the Chicken Marsala which was absolutely delicious, probably the best I've ever tasted. And the portions are big enough...

My husband and I received a gift certificate for Christmas. We went for lunch. I was kind of disappointed that there is no luncheon menu so the prices were higher. There are sandwiches available though. I had the meatball and sausage with angel hair and my husband had the veal eggplant and penne. We both had two small salads. The... More

Delicious! We waited 1/2 an hour for a table (the place is pretty small with overflow parking into the business next door) but it was well worth it. I had the lobster ravioli and it was stuffed with chunks of delicious lobster and the cream sauce was divine. My husband had the chicken marsala which was excellent (my personal taste... More

This restaurant is great. It's very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, and there is no call ahead seating. Aside from that, the food is awesome. We ordered a variety of food....fettuccine alfredo, ravioli, pasta with a big meatball, chicken parm, and veal parm topped with eggplant. Everything was great. The food came out fast, there were six of us... More
