We went to dinner on a monday about one week ago. We went in and were seated at the high tables by the bar. We didn't see anyone for some time.After a while the bartender came over and took our drink order. After the drinks were brought over we didn't see anyone at all. Apparently we were never assigned a waitress or waiter. I had to flag someone down to take our order, then our meals came and the girl noticed we didn't have any bread etc. and said she would get some. Bread comes and we never see another person at our table! My wife had eggplant parm and it was so soggy and the breading was like onion ring batter. We finally got the attention of the bartender again and he asked what was up. we told him and he offered to remove it from the bill,but from the rest of our experience so far my wife gave up on anything else. To not be waited on when you go out does not make for an enjoyable experience. Then for the meal to be disappointing puts a cherry on top.<br />

I won't go back just because this one of the very few cafes that don't have free soda refills

OMG! have NEVER been so disappointed at a restaurant! Pasta was overcooked and Ive had better sauce out of the jar! I went to this place years ago and liked it but it has gone WAY down hill! We went out for our anniversary and it was the worst choice we ever made. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Best Italian restaurant in Salem, NH!! I would recommend this place to anyone.

I wanted pasta fagioli.It had a nice flavor.Short on beans and had spaghetti in it.<br /> Shrimp Scampi was tasteless not one bit of garlic butter. It would have been better served with garlic bread to add to the nothing taste. I will not go back. BRING POLCARIES BACK!!!!!!!!!<br />

Would not allow kids pasta to be served with alfredo sauce, not even for an upcharge. Marinara was runny and cheap tasting. After 5 minutes, the marinara started to separate into oil, grease and runny tomato sauce. This was clearly made with low quality ingredients. For kids pasta with meatball, the meatball costs an extra dollar but you actually only get half of a meatball. Actual prices on menupix are well below actual prices. Restaurant didn't care, said "oh, didn't think that was still up there." They don't even have their own website? Ridiculous, will never go there again.

Went to Ralphie's sat. with our friends from Hudson NH. They told me i wouldn't leave hungry. I ordered the pork cutlet and spag w/1 meatball. The meatball was tender, large and good. The pork cutlet is the best as is the sauce for the spag & meatball. Can't wait to go back again.

Simply, the best.<br /> The place to go to eat good Italian food.<br /> Not so much if you are looking for ambiance but you will not leave hungry.

I've been dining at Ralphie's for 22 years.The first time there was a freezing cold night. It was empty. Looked at the menu, and at the time it didn't include veal, which is what I was looking for. Almost left, but the waitress Lisa told us they had pork cutlet's and every thing was home made. We both ordered it, and fell in LOVE with this place!! I've sent countless people there since and always a thumbs up!! Good prices. Great meals!! Then tried the Collisium up the street. 5 times the price and the food doesn't hold a candle to Ralphie's. Its the best!

We're from Phoenix, AZ and when we are visiting New Hampshire we never miss a visit to Ralphie's! Our favorites are the Ravioli, Chicken Parm and Eggplant. Very homey and delightful service. The Feole's make everyone feel like family. Only wish we could eat there more often.<br />

Ive been going here since I was a child and I have never had a bad meal there. I highly recommend, the shrimp scampi, seafood marinara, white wine muscles, and there home made dressing is amazing. I highly recommend Ralphies to anyone. staff are extremely friendly and fun to be around 5/5

Ralphie's is the very best! THis is the north end ..up North!<br /> <br /> The food is fantastic and priced very fairly. The family atosphere is great and the whoile family works there so it is very nice.<br /> <br /> Go there and try it you'll never go anywhere else. Cheese Ravioli's with eat sauce and a meatball will make your day!
