The original Ralph’s Italian Restaurant was created in 1900 by Francesco Dispigno and named after his son, Raphael. Today, Ralph’s is still owned and operated by the fourth and fifth generations of the Dispigno/Rubino family and is the oldest Italian restaurant in America. Ralph’s of South Philly is owned by the same family members, insuring that you will receive the same great food and high quality service that has been a Ralph's tradition for over 100 years!We, the family of Ralph's, are grateful to our loyal customers who have allowed us to continue for all this time. We look forward to making many new friends as we continue, and are honored you are joining us today to make “A Little History”!
