Fun evening with friends at a reliable eatery. Convenient location, decorated in vintage Italian Pizzeria theme complete with murals painted on the walls. Friendly and competent service, a menu just a little too big, wine and beer selections serviceable. We enjoyed a selection of apps/salads... read more

I heard a lot about Ruffino's and decided to give it a try last evening for dinner. The restaurant is small but very clean and well organized. As I walked in I was greeted by the hostess who was very polite and friendly. She showed us to our table and gave us menus. Almost immediately our server greeted us and... More

We've been going here for years. If you want a traditional Italian meal this is your spot. The pizza is expensive and ok, but their entrees are where it's at.

What a great find. This is a classic NY style Italian restaurant. I had the Chicken Parm and my wife had an awesome Eggplant Rolatini special. Everything was awesome, fresh - homemade. This is a family run operation and I believe the menu said it has been open for +30 years. The owners daughter waited on us and was terrific.... More

Great food, Fantastic waiter , but a bit pricey for pizza, pasta and the like. They have a good selection. Everything tastes fresh and good quality. Seems to be a family run place. We followed a waiter there, from another place in town !!

Ruffino's is a small, casual, nice place for an Italian meal. The food was good and the portions were very large. The delicious, buttery garlic bread-sticks were awesome! I could have eaten a ton of them! Don't let the location in a strip mall deter you - give it a shot and see what you think! And do plan on... More

Great food when it is available. Tried to order linguine with white clam sauce 3 times and they said they were out. This was at 5 p. m. on a weeknight. We mostly order delivery but do not anymore due to the lack of accuracy of delivery time. I don't mind waiting 45 minutes, but when you say. 45 minutes... More

Never had an entrée that wasn't delicious. Friends from New Jersey raved about the restaurant months after they had gone home. It's the first place we take company.s

It was great food. The staff was very friendly and informative. My brother and his wife came from California, I took them here. They raved about it too.
