Ragazzi's Pizza and Restaurant

Raggazi pizza

I’ve been to the pizza restaurant at 3201 Edgewater Drive in College Park many times, first when it was Alfonso’s and more recently as Ragazzi’s, but I had always gotten pizza for takeout. Pizza, to me, is more of a takeout food, rather getting a whole pie to go home or a slice to eat while you walk.

But on a recent visit with out of towners looking for a bite to eat after a long plane ride, I suggested we go there and dine in. It was a thoroughly pleasant experience.

We had pizza, of course, because that is its forte. And this one was done just right. The crust -- so important to a proper pizza -- was just thick enough to hold the weight of the toppings, which were considerable. We had the Supreme, which had pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, onions and mushrooms. It was a delicious pizza, and more important, it made good eating as cold leftovers (always has been a standard of excellence in my book).

But here’s something else I’ve never done here: I orders some other nonpizza dishes to try. I loved the meatball appetizer, which really could have served as an entree all on its own. Not only were the meat orbs well formed and firm, they also were simmered in a red sauce that was thick and tomatoey and worth spooning on its own.

Ragazzi eggplantI also had the eggplant parmigiana, a nicely done slice of eggplant dipped in egg wash and dusted with flour, fried to a golden crisp and then topped with melted mozzarella. Even better: it included a side dish of pasta with more of that wonderful marinara.

The atmosphere is casual, sporty and leans slightly more towards being a bar, but there were several families dining with kids when I was there, and they did not look out of place.

Servers were all friendly and attentive, and I enjoyed everything about the experience. 

Ragazzi’s Pizza and Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily. Here’s a link to the website. The phone number is 407-999-9973.
