My husband and I were looking for a decent restaurant in the vicinity of Sunny Isles. Surfside seems to be coming back to life so we chanced on Cafe Ragazzi. What luck, Italian comfort food and cooked very well. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming, not too stuffy and not trendy but more like a traditional family room. We had... More

The restaurant is located close to the upscale hotels and shopping of Bal Harbour but in a relative unattractive corner. Decour is ok with pictures of assorted B celebrities and of the Venezuelan crooner owner. Table cloth covered tables a plus. Service is good and attentive. The calamari appetizer was good. Too bad that the restaurant only offers a plate... More

Enjoyed a delicious supper midweek. Fabulous little restaurant with a congenial family feel. Staff were especially attentive, service was fast yet unobtrusive. Portions were generous.

Nice interior and convenient location but this time food dis not fulfill our expectations. The envoltini melanzani was light in tomato sauce, fish good and pasta with a good tomato sauce but the spaghetti Bolognese was dry and simple. Wine good in quality and price.

It is not precisely an inexpensive restaurant, when you pay for real food you want real food, I wast really really disappointed today at my lunch. Please see the picture attached, the thickness of the meet is probably under 5 millimeters, use the fork thickness as a reference. It was $26 for bread, egg and a paper meat Milanese, please,...

Absolutely amazing! Victor the server treated us like princesses. The food was out of this world; chicken parmigiano, shrimp/lobster ravioli and chicken francese. A chocolate mousse is a must for dessert. Beautiful table settings, attentive staff and amazing food. Always a destination when we travel in the area.

Very popular venue. And for good reason; Cafe Ragazzi serves up excellent food of every description. Fish, meat, pizza, pasta were all great. Our personal favorite was the risotto. Delicious. The service was excellent. Very friendly and attentive staff. It's a loud place. The acoustics could use some work.
