Opening Alert: Ragazzi, Norwood, NJ


Ragazzi, the restaurant and lounge replacing Tutti Giorni (first reported back in March) in Norwood, has opened for business. Owned by Damiano Pascali (Tre Voci in Ridgwood) and Anthony Volpe, the casual Italian restaurant features a fully renovated dining room, bar and outdoor area. Pascali and Volpe were looking to fill the void of a “family place” with “competitively-priced” portions, where everyone could feel comfortable.

The menu (see below) features many Italian staples, with homemade soups, pastas (which can be made whole wheat or gluten free) and weekly specials. Chef Alberto is in the kitchen (he’s been with Pascali 22 years at Romans in New Milford and Tre Voci). A bar menu includes a few smaller bites and sandwiches, to pair with watching a game or two by the bar. Pascali is also very eager to mention that they’ll cater the menu to you, since they make everything to order ― it even says it on the menu ― as long as they have the ingredients, they’ll happily make it for you.

The bar features all concrete counter tops and was designed around their wine menu, which includes 8-9 bottles priced $15 or less. There are 5 beers on tap with a selection of 15 more by the bottle, both foreign and domestic options. They’re adding specialty cocktails and a frozen drink machine as well, which should be available soon.

The entire room 3200 square foot space has been opened up, with the wall separating the bar and dining room being removed. The inside seats 100, while they can seat another 50 outside. They are open 6 days (closed Mondays) for lunch and dinner with weekday happy hour and live music expected soon.
