Hidden Gem off the Beaten Path

Small, out of the way Italian restaurant with ambiance. Above average wait staff who go out of their way to try and please. Better than average food, and overall a great value.

My friend and I ate dinner here on July 3rd 2015. The atmosphere is adequate. The food is cafeteria style at best. My friend had the sole which was suppose to be fresh but had a very odd taste. I had the meat cannelloni and it had absolutely no taste. The carrots were served sliced in a ceramic bowl and... More

Ordered medium filet. Served to me totally moooing. I askwd for it to be done correctly per my order. It took 35 minutes for it to be served to me again. Plus they still charged me for it. No discount either. Never going back. Service was crappy too.

It's been my goal to patronize non-chain restaurants and, although I've lived in Rocklin for 13 years, I hadn't visited Rubino's until a month ago. My daughter and I decided to take each other out for Mother's Day dinner and chose Rubino's and we weren't disappointed! This wasn't the usual noisy, get-em-in-get-em-out chain Italian. The tables were set with white... More

Went for a baby shower, food was late-dropped on floor, salmon was raw. Service was good, would be willing to give them another try.

Just the epitome of the perfect Italian restaurant! And may I mention the prices are much lower than one may expect. My only issues: The service was way too fast. Granted, we got there at 8:10, our reservation was at 8. We got our incredible hors d'oeuvres immediately. The unfortunate issue was the salads came within 5 minutes after that.... More

Very good Italian restaurant. Have been coming here for years when we travel from Reno to Sonoma. I usually have the chicken marsala, which is excellent. Have had their pasta dishes and the sauces are very good. Being Italian and make my own sauces from scratch, their sauces are tasty and good. I highly recommend this restaurant. Excellent wine list... More

When they are having a good day their veal is good. However, we have noticed the quality of the food is inconsistent. Not anywhere as good as Buonarroti's in Lincoln which is our favorite for wonderful Italian cuisine.

The waiter said their gnocchi is the best in Sacramento, so I had to try it. He wasn't exaggerating. It was soft and silky. So perfect. The pesto sauce was creamy and had lovely slices of garlic. I loved it. They have great service and I dine their often. It's a great family owned restaurant that is a great place... More

I have to qualify that priciness statement. This isn't like a fast food version of Italian- it is really good! Good wine selection and I absolutely love the enchiladas. It is tucked away, and just a bit of a drive off of I-80, but so worth the visit.
