Based on TripAdvisors ranking, and the fact that I work just across the street, I thought we could take a slightly delayed birthday dinner at Ruffino. So what can we say? Certainly not the cheapest Italian restaurant you could find, but the food tastes like Italy with a capital 'I' - both the caprese, tuna and ravioli were good choices,... More

A colleague and I were invited by two friends from Oslo to Ruffino for a nice dinner. The young lady who serviced our table was probably the friendliest and knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list I have ever seen. So, 5-star for service is probably understated in that case. I had the lamb and it was simply outstanding.... More

Fantastic tortelloni al tartufo. The other homemade pasta is delicate real desserts. Service is smiling and intelligent. Finally the bill: considering location, quality, that it is Oslo and the place is packed with beautiful people, a great deal.

I visited Ruffino on a Monday evening and so the restaurant was a little quiet but the service from the staff was very friendly and helpful. We changed the size of our group by adding 2 more people and they quickly accommodated this. They also made a great wine recommendation to go along with the dishes we had chosen. The... More

Ate here on a recent holiday to Oslo. The food was some of the best Italian food we have ever tasted. We had bruschetta, fagottini, ravioli, lasagne and chocolate fondants- all of these were delicious! The food was so good that we returned and ordered the same dishes. The prices were very reasonable compared to the prices charged in other... More

We were visiting relatives in Oslo and wanted to end our stay with a great memorable meal and Ruffinos certainly didn't disappoint. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and suggested some choices from the menu. Everything that she suggested was very delicious and we couldn't fault a thing. The service and the food was outstanding. We have already recommended Ruffinos to... More

Pleasant Italian Experience By listening to the waiter`s advice we ended up with a variety of Italian dishes and excellent wines, which all five of us thoroughly enjoyed. The family dinner was altogether a pleasant experience. Elderly Norwegian couple.

This restaurant is fantastic. The atmosphere and the service is exceptional. The food is real Italian, with the asparagus starter as the highlight. All dishes we have tasted so far have been great. All people working there are friendly and welcoming. I will most definitely go back again, as often as I can afford it :)
