Arrived on Saturday evening without a reservation and were treated very well, a table was ready within about 5 minutes. Excellent Italian food, well served and reasonably priced (by Oslo standards), would certainly go back again.

I have visited the place many times, usually on May 17th so they were very busy and almost frantic that actually could come across as rude. Much calmer on the normal day. The food is very nice, home made but truth to be told is place is lacking atmosphere.

Been here a couple of times now, and always leave satisfied. I've tried many different things on the menu and have not been disappointed by anything. Also, very nice and attentive staff. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommended by me!

Ruffino's is a fabulous Italian restaurant close to Oslo City centre. It is the best Italian restaurant I have been to. The menu is extensive and full of classic Italian dishes, the wine list is fantastic, great atmosphere and the location terrific opposite the royal park but what really makes it is the wonderful people running it and the service...

We was at Ruffino at a Wednesday in October and all 7 of us agreed that this was a very good experience. The food was great and the service was also very good. Thank you for a nice evening and we will for sure be back some time :-)

The best italian you can find I think for sure in the whole Norway. Its dishes and the atmosphere will take you to heart of Italy. Dishes with a very good quality and a good presentation of them, the treatment with the staff is awesome!

We went to Ruffino's a Tuesday night before a show and was treated to some really nice Italian food. The food and service was top-notch, and we left very happy indeed. If you only try one dish on this restaurant, try the ravioli pasta with ricotta, mascarpone and truffles. Simply fantastic! Recommended!

As an Italian in Norway I appreciate the Italian cuisine in all it's glory to take me back to bella Italia. The refined menu at Ruffino gives you the wider view on an food palate that for many is narrowed down to pasta and pizza. At Ruffino you'll get their home made pasta with different twists and other first and... More
