JC's Garden of Eat'n sates cravings for gooey cheese and zesty sauce with a menu of casual Italian dishes. Diners can awaken taste buds by softly nudging them with an alarm clock or by chomping on an array of appetizers, such as fried mushrooms ($4.25) or wings ($7.25 for 10). In the kitchen, cooks fill vacant ovens with the classic cheese pizza ($7 for a 12", $10 for a 16") or supreme, hawaiian, or greek specialty pies ($9.99 for a 12", $12.99 for a 16"). Ladles splash pasta sauce onto bowls of spaghetti ($7.75), which guests can accent with meatballs, chicken parmesan, or veal parmesan ($1.25 each). The eatery also layers Italian flavors onto hot and cold sub sandwiches and slakes parched houseplants with glasses of soda ($1.65) and juice ($1.75).
No one leaves Ragazzi's New York Style Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant hungry. That's because the chef and kitchen staff are dedicated not only to authenticity in preparing rich fettuccine alfredo and crispy veal parmigiana, but also to generous portions and giant slices of pizza. They toss their pasta with everything from lightly battered and sauteed shrimp to veal and prosciutto, with their sauces being so in demand that they now sell their signature tomato sauces by the jar and tanker.
Amid the dining room's plush booths and tables decorated with the New York City skyline, the wait staff ferries neapolitan pizzas that combine the interweaving flavors of tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. Their guests can order pizza slice by slice to get a taste of all 20 toppings, or order entire pies in specialty combinations such as the chicken pomodoro with a creamy lemon sauce or the stuffed meat pie that surrounds its filling with two layers of dough sans sauce.
