This was my first visit to Ravenna. I ordered the House Salad, Chicken Florentine, and Raspberry Tea. The salad was very tasty. The chicken was juicy, succulent, and delicious. The spaghetti was very good. The roll was shaped like a pretzel and was very warm, soft, & delicious. The raspberry tea was great! The service was very friendly and attentive.... More

Quaint place in downtown with a cozy Michael Bouble vibe. I'm pretty picky but I had the pork chop which was very good! Caprese salad was nice and light and tiramisu was moist and delicious, bread was fresh and hot with a nice dipping sauce. I would have given it 5 stars but my companion ordered the Kansas City strip... More

My wife had the sole and I had the filet mignon specials and both were very tasty meals. The service was great and our waiter Chance and staff were very good. Please keep in mind this is not a bar and grill;you are paying for great food and great service.

Came here after the Cotton Bowl, and were immediately greeted by the most friendly wait staff! Very accommodating and helpful on what to order. The food was amazing and very fresh tasting. Inside was very quaint and clean. Would definitely come back if in the area, and I highly recommend it!

Quaint little spot for dinner and drinks in downtown Dallas with the very best pasta and seafood. Manicotti with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce was fantastic. Ravioli was homemade and cooked to perfection. Don't leave without dessert!

Went for a pre-concert dinner, on a week night. The service was wonderful! And the food...wow! This is a very nice restaurant, very quaint. Would be wonderful for a quiet romantic dinner. And the 14 inch pizza--HUGE! We will definitely return!

I've had dinner at the Ravenna several times while in Dallas. The chicken piccata is quite good, and the wine list is good if not very extensive. The service is goid, although the tables are quite close together. It's pretty good value for the money.

Thank Randy C
