Review on Alexandra Ristorante Italiano

Overlooking Ramsgate's picturesque harbour, Alexandra Ristorante Italiano has been loyally serving its customers for almost 25 years but now a remarkable change has taken place. Moving with the times the restaurant has been given a thorough makeover but still comes complete with the same friendly atmosphere for which it is so well known. The cuisine has likewise been brought into the 21st century so, gone is the salad bar and lengthy menu and here is modern Italian cooking with up to the minute ideas.

The new short menu offers amazing value. Open the slate with bruschetta topped with pickled and marinated wild mushrooms, pecorino, chilli and thyme or "Maria's amazing spring salad", pea shoots, blood orange and balsamic vinegar with buffalo mozzarella. Main courses pick up the contemporary theme as in tagliatelle with wild garlic leafy pesto or chicken breast, pan fried in olive oil brushed with rosemary and served over fresh spinach. The kitchen still gives a nod to its die-hard classics like Luciano's pizza, his minestrone and famous tiramisu while other desserts are lively ideas such as Italian meringue with ice cream and berries topped with mascarpone.

The mainly-Italian wine list is a well-annotated assortment of good-value regional bottles which are fairly priced and eminently drinkable.

    Superb food in delightful surroundings, at honest prices! and worth Michelin stars....

    A last minute impulse led us to join my son and his partner at the Alexandra Ristorante in Ramsgate, for our 31st December 2017 late dinner. And what a surprise was in store for us all as none of us had been there before. Our new-year's dinner turned out to be our best 2017 restaurant experience and the best Italian restaurant we have been to, over the past 30 years! What a find indeed... Although late for our 21:30 table, we were very warmly welcomed in the Alexandra Ristorante delightful and spoteless surroundings. We savoured every bite and minute we had until we left at 23:45. The setting was perfect for our New-Year's eve celebration: a homely environment, in the heart of Ramsgate harbour. The Alexandra Ristorante building is indeed unique. The tables are tastily set, in a welcoming and stylish simplicity.. Quiet music provided a pleasant background to our family get-together. The perfect Italian atmosphere oozing peaceful charm... As for the food... well as a French accomplished cook myself, I like the best and I was not disappointed... The menu offered a wide variety of options, including a good range of delicious vegeterian dishes. Our food was served with care by the owners who clearly take great delight in pleasing their guests and much pride in preparing the best of Italian traditional food. Every dish we picked was exquisitely presented, in generous portions, home-made with fresh and high-quality ingredients, and so so so tasty!!! Italian food at its best.... All dishes were very reasonably priced and our three-course New-Year's eve meals with drinks cost us just under £25 per person. Very well done John: your food is scrumptious and your prices are honest!!! A big thank you to you, family and staff for making our late New Year's eve a really unexpected treat, despite Ramsgate Harbour fireworks being cancelled due to strong winds... We left your restaurant into the wet and cold seaside air, with a warm heart and happy tummies! We will definitely be back in 2018 with family and friends to enjoy your special food, drinks and surroundings!
