The upside of jury duty. Given a little over an hour for lunch, Ralph n Rich's (an Italian restaurant) is a short walk from the Superior Court in downtown Bridgeport. I was surprised at how large the restaurant is. The bar area forms an L shape as you enter, cozy tables occupy the street-facing windows and we were greeted by... More

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Fairfield County. The food is always fresh and the selection never disappoints! The owners Ralph and Richie have been in downtown Bpt for many years and they gave a huge following.

Ralph N Rich's is the place my wife and I go to when we want a good night out and are not going to NY for a show. The food is excellent. You might be able to get as good in New York, but it will cost you more and you have to go to New York. There is live... More

I came here for a retirement party. I live about 20 min north of Bpt. and never heard of this place. I was pleasantly surprised. We had several dishes for appetizers and main meal served to us. The portions were very large. The bread was very good as well. They do have a bar area which is separate.We had a... More

Personally I think the place is over rated. The few times I went there the lunches were adequate and dinner wasn't good at all.

The restaurant is a bright, cozy (while spacious) spot in downtown Bridgeport. The menu is traditional Italian fare. I was attending a baby shower, so I sampled their pasta and sauce, Salmon with capers and chicken marsala, plus house salad and bread. All was delicious. The restaurant is large with areas that can be nicely sectioned off with lovely curtains... More

We were there last Saturday with 2 other couples. The food was delicious in an elegant "Mad men" old world vibe. We found the prices very reasonable for the quality of the food and experience. Great service too!

Ralf N Rich's is a fabulous restaurant to visit with family and friends for an unforgettable experience... First, Cleanliness is important and the restaurant is, especially the restrooms, a good initial impression. The wait staff is helpful and couldn't do more to help everyone in your party feel at home with out being intrusive..... The Sunday Sauce meal is served... More
