PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –- Don’t confuse Ralph’s of South Philly, which just opened in King of Prussia, Pa., with the family’s original restaurant, Ralph’s Italian Restaurant, which actually operates in South Philadelphia.

Owner-manager Ryan Rubino (top photo) says creating a contemporary menu for the new restaurant was difficult, “because we went through our entire classic menu and each thing we didn’t include was a painstaking process.  Because after five generations of the same family, we’re emotionally connected to each and every dish!”
