Reviewed 7 May 2014

As frequent vacationers in Surfside (annually for over 20 years) my wife and I have enjoyed Cafe Ragazzi since it first opened as a tiny corner bistro . In that time Ragazzi has expanded somewhat and has had a huge positive impact on Harding Ave. by providing a consistently excellent and sophisticated casual dining experience with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A change in ownership a few years back went quite well and the restaurant remains fun, noisy and friendly. The food is very good, ranging from pasta and stone oven pizza to well prepared carne and pesce. I always ask for the stuffed artichoke (usually not on the menu so you have to ask - truly delicious and large enough to share as an appetizer). Celebrities staying at nearby hotels dine unmolested.

With 3 Italian resturants within a block, this place looked like it had the best vibe. The food was fantastic. The menu had almost too many great sounding options. I had the grilled prawns on safron rissoto and it was out of this world!

Service was very good. They could have brought our food out a bit faster as we had to wait awhile between courses.

This restaurant in surfside has oustanding food and service. They will accept your imput about the meal, and it will be served, exactly the way you ordered it. The service is excellent, and even if the restaurant is full, you will not wait for long for your food.
We tried the Carpaccio, the Ravioli, the Capellini Pomodoro, and everything was good, accompanied by a great Malbec Fin del Mundo. My dessert was Fragole (strawberries) Sabaione and it was delicious. Definetily a place to go back to.

Great location just one block from our hotel. The food was fabulous. The service could not have been better. It is a small crowded place so a bit loud. But, we loved the food.
