A message from Laura:

My highest priority is to protect the health and well-being of my employees and customers who collectively make up the Ragazza family.

Yesterday, June19, I learned that two kitchen staff tested positive for COVID-19. I immediately decided to close for business and began working directly with the KCMO Health Department. Given that it was kitchen staff affected, and all other CDC guidelines were followed since the beginning of the pandemic, any risk to servers and customers is considered extremely low by the CDC and KCMO Health Department. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/organizations/business-employers/bars-restaurants.html

Ragazza’s small but might kitchen team is the heart and soul of the Ragazza family.

While I am not required to close, I can’t operate without them, so I decided to suspend operations until July 9, 2020.  This will allow us to comply with CDC guidelines (quarantine and re-testing) and also provide our entire staff an extended break until after the 4th of July holiday.

Thank you for your loyalty, support and understanding during this very difficult time.



Ragazza opened its original location in 2013—serving up Italian family recipes and a wide selection of Italian wines.

We are extremely proud of our new location—4301 Main Street. Like our original location, it is also a cozy, corner spot and is walking distance from both Westport and the Plaza.

Ragazza features the same delicious food and wine while expanding to accommodate more fresh food, delicious wines…but most importantly…more of our amazing clientele.

After a long construction process, we are elated to welcome everyone back to our home. And, we are ever grateful for the continual support of our patrons who have become our friends and regulars.

Thank you Kansas City…we are glad to be back with you!

Laura Norris, proprietor
