Ralph’s When Food Matters!

eatmelancaster.com – By Eat Me! Lancaster

For those of you that have grown up in an Italian family or have been adopted into one you understand when I say “Mangia!” With my family, gatherings aren’t just a hello how do you do, it’s a carnival of food that equals no other food experience….anywhere, ever! Plate after plate of antipasta, cheeses, aged meats, bread, roast pork, sausage, tomato sauce, roasted peppers, olives, soup, salad, cannoli (ricotta, it’s the only true cannoli) pine nut cookies, pizelles, biscotti…and the list goes on. I will not go into the jugs of wine and loaves of bread that is consumed but it is also among epic proportions.

Speaking of epic proportions, I was treated to a lunch at Ralph’s located in the Slaymaker Building on 117 S. West End Ave. The decor has a rustic cafe feel, very casual with indoor and patio seating. It was a chilly rainy day so I sat at a semi circle window seat.
