“Nice, upscale change for Nogales”
Review of Ragazzi's

Ranked #3 of 71 Restaurants in Nogales
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 November 2016

In a town not known for fine dining, this is a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere is darkish, elegant, with nice music, black tablecloths & so on. I would suggest they staff-up, however, because two waitpeople cared for the whole place during a jam-packed lunch hour. The owner stepped in to help, but our drinks went mostly unfilled, our table un-bussed.
That said, we enjoyed our meals. My simple pasta with garlic, basil & fresh tomato sauce was delicious. My husband's lasagna was not outstanding ~ very cheesy, very little meat ~ but tasty. The salad was good-sized tho nothing special, but at least featured romaine lettuce ~ & unless you like gobs of dressing, we'd suggest getting it on the side. The minestrone was delicious, with obviously fresh veggies. The bread basket included focaccia & garlic bread, & the parmesan was grated fresh at our table. The tiramisu was quite large, with traditional lady fingers soaked in what tasted like rum. And the flan was unusually hearty & delicious.
The menu offers mostly Italian dishes, tho some Mexican entrees, steaks, seafood & even a burger. When we got the separate dessert menu we noticed pizza options on the back. Many dishes have a choice of lunch or dinner portions, at different prices. Lots of wine choices, cocktails, tequila etc. If our lunch visit was any indication this is a very busy place, especially for business / office groups. I'd suggest arriving well before or after peak times. We'll definitely eat here again.
