You know the touristy places we sometimes talk about? Ralph’s is one of them. But considering the South Philly icon is one of the oldest Italian restaurants in the country, what else can you expect? It has an antique appeal—wood-trimmed walls have black and white photos of Italy, and the floors are covered in the original subway tiles. All of the food comes in huge portions, from spaghetti in red gravy and shrimp scampi. Overall it’s pretty lackluster, but it’s all about the experience of such a historic place. Just be happy they survived prohibition—the wine list is still large.
