We were seated promptly. The restaurant was crowded for a Friday night. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms and it came drowned in some kind of cheese/vodka sauce which was bizarre. I ordered the calamari marinara. The ratio of calamari to sauce was off. Enough sauce for 2 dishes. Calamari was rubbery, flavorless. My friend ordered eggplant parm and said it... More

I grew up with great Italian restaurants in Brooklyn and had been looking for "our neighborhood" place. Ruffino's is it. Love their Cabrese Salad with thick slices of mozzarella between ripe tomato slices, fresh basil leaves and a good quality balsamic drizzle (a few olives, too).Having had many of their dinners I must say they know sauce. My favorite is... More

I was first introducted to Ruffino's several years ago. The restaurant is family owned and operated which I appreciate. It is nice going in and seeing Maria and Guy. The food is consistently delicious and the portions are huge so you always have a little to take home. They recently remodeled and the prices were not really affected as they... More

We ordered an everything pizza and it was loaded. We also had there stuffed mushroom caps which were amazing. Service was... More

We are regulars here and the food is generally good. Our most recent experience the pizza was real watery. Nothing special just a normal pie. Unforgivable yet the waiter said it would taste better tomorrow. Have found this to be a recurring issue with their Pizza.

The Italian food was quite good, which is unusual for Florida. It was rather expensive for a small restaurant .

First, one must remember this is in Port St. Lucie, Fla., not a major metropolitan area where there are more choices available and one can truly compare one restaurant to another. Ruffino's is a family-own business, that serves adequate Italian dishes. But compared to a larger metropolitan area, this establishment would end up with very low-marks across the board. Having...
