We've eaten at Ragazzi's a number of times and overall have never been disappointed. Service has always been friendly and efficient. I disagree with comments that the food is as good as anything you will find in Italy but it is certainly good for Green Valley and the surrounding area. Pasta dishes are always good, although vegetables can be overcooked at times. Sea bass and steak are very tasty if you want a break from pasta or they will even accommodate with a side order of pasta if you don't want the potatoes that come with the sea bass and steak. Yes, in season you must have reservations on the weekend and, with reservations, we have always been seated within 5-10 minutes of our scheduled time. The spicy calamari is wonderful. Always a pleasant experience.

Ragazzi's was a very unexpected and pleasant surprise. We ate their two evening, out of 4, and loved the food, the ambiance and the service. It was way beyond expectations with beautifully cooked and well presented dishes with the perfect portion sizes. We will eat there anytime we're in Green Valley. It's a little tricky to find however unless you hit the right road into the Mall!

If you happen to be in the Green Valley area (35 mins south of Tucson), this a great find for Italian food and most likely the best overall restaurant in the area ... not something worth driving down for but certainly worth your time if you are in the area visiting friends, etc. Service is very good, almost too good sometimes - borders on 'hovering' - sometimes less is more - Chicken Picatta is excellent as is the Pesto Linguini. Pricing is reasonable... a little hard to find as it is tucked back in a strip mall but just ask anyone and they can direct you...

It's been some time since we ate there. Had an issue with previous ownership that was never resolved. Went for light lunch, found they don't have on Saturdays in the summer, so split a dinner. The lasagne was very good, not the best I've ever had, but ranks well up there. Service was good and attentive. Atmosphere probably best in GV.

Entering the dining room, we could have been in a lovely, small ristorante in Italy, except the bottled water is free here and the wait staff a bit more friendly! The menu is extensive yet with the three entrees we ordered there seemed to be no lack of authenticity in the presentations. Soup (minestrone) or crisp green salad with housemade garlic croutons was an added treat, as was the lovely hot bread plate and olive oil / balsamic vinegar cruet for our dipping pleasure. Wait staff generously grated parmesan from a large wedge and were attentive without being intrusive. All in all, an absolutely delightful evening without distraction from the nearby tables.and noone seemed to be in a hurry to leave. Desserts were perfect- - spumoni, raspberry gelato and a creme brulee. Unpretentious location (partially deserted shopping mall)and entry, but step inside and be surprised, delighted and "Italianized"!
