Cafe Ragazzi Restaurant (Surfside)

Posted on January 30th, 2009 · Italian Surfside


*****  Cafe Ragazzi Restaurant, 9500 Harding Avenue, Surfside, Florida 33154 (305) 866-4495.

Got a very-very good Italian restaurant for you…Cafe Ragazzi, located in Surfside. This 96-seater is basically a neighborhood-joint, but if you want to “make a trip” to eat there, I won’t laugh at you. Yes…your tee shirt/shorts ensemble will do just fine.

Cafe Ragazzi has the full-expected “compliment” of appetizers, soups, salads, pastas, pizzas, meat/seafood/chicken entrees. Cafe Ragazzi’s prices… maybe a buck-or-two higher than pizza joint prices. The service is just fine.

The food like I said before, is very-very good. A recent outing with 3-others resulted in my “taste-testing” (someone has to do it) fried calamari & zucchini, linguine in white clam sauce, meat lasagna, chicken marsala, bone-in chicken scarpariello, veal parmigiana, zuppe di pesce…everything was right on the money.

With gas back under $2 a gallon…you just may want to consider a “road-trip” to Cafe Ragazzi (assuming you don’t live in the neighborhood)…The joint is open for lunch & dinner Monday-Saturday 11:30am-midnight and dinner-only Saturday 5pm-midnight.

    Hi. just read s fl blog and am a bit confused by what the guy is talking about when he says that you blog and then remove writeups. also a bit confused when he indicates that you missed on your review.
    know this restauarnt and it is very good.

    mk: Just had a chance to read your post.
    On South Florida Daily Blog…Sometimes before Jeff Eats “publishes” a writeup, it is briefly posted for format purposes…to check spelling and to make sure that links to restauarnt sites work…after everything checks out, it is removed and then “waits” for its set date and time for posting.

    On the review itself, the comment obviously missed the “tone” of my writeup…which was that Raggazi is more than just your run of the mill neighborhood joint.

    Anyway…thanks for reading.
