Amazing quality and variety of food. Lovely waitress and service even though she forgot to serve table bread rolls until after first course! I would highly recommend Raggazone as a fine dining experience. Will definitely return in the future and can't wait for that opportunity when given this chance!

Loved every mouthful of the entrees but found the main courses way too salty, even the salad. Enjoyed the attention to detail in the lighting and feel. Great wine and staff which made the experience very pleasant. Will definitely retutn and will be interested to see if the salt problem was a one off or not.

Tried Ragazzone for the first time last weekend for a catch up with a friend. We were both really impressed with everything about our experience. The food was amazing and we were very happy with the chef's dinner, the service was first class and the venue is tastefully decorated and has a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to other diners looking for a top notch evening.

Ragazzone was a perfect date night for my parner and I. The food was beautiful and the service expectional. The wait staff were fun and light but not interfering. There were a couple of times when we couldn't hear each other over the music however the music was pretty awesome if you were born in the mid 70's

An exceptional dining experience... food was absolutely extraordinary and felt privileged to be able to watch the incredible team work from our vantage point at the bar. Wine list offered amazing variety of fresh and smart wines; the Fiano we chose perfectly complemented our meal. Don’t forgo a cocktail to start. Service was impeccable and personal... always made to feel very special.

Good food and service excellent. Only negative was the slow moving disinterested young lady bagging spaghetti... bare hands(which is okay usually) fiddling with her hair, wiping hands on towel at her waist, in a dream world while very very slowly weighing cooked spaghetti. I won't be ordering spaghetti when I return. !
