We have been coming to Rufina's periodically since it opened. Chicken Parmesan is always on the menu, as are a few other Italian classics...but there are plenty of more adventurous entrees. The food is very good, and reasonably priced. What we really love about coming here is that it is a quiet meal -- plenty of space between the tables,... More

Food is delicious! Staff is friendly! Comfortable atmosphere. I love the spinach salad with goat cheese, fig dressing and walnuts, also the chicken marsala.

We came here for dinner recently and overall, it was a pleasant experience. We started with an appetizer of "Calamari e Peperone o Calamari di Fritti" and chose the saute option over the fried option. The squid itself was bland but that is not unexpected. The white wine sauce complemented the squid and the peppers gave the entire dish flavor.... More

We live near Rufinas, formerly Vincenzo's at this location. We liked the food at Vincenzo's but visited twice since it changed owners and became Rufinas. Both visits were disappointing. One of us had their special of the night, a pasta dish with chicken, mushroom sauce, and peppers. The other had the gnocchi bolognese. Neither had any flavor. Both were served... More

We had an enjoyable meal on a recent Saturday night. Typical red sauce Italian restaurant with dishes done well. Chicken Saltimbocca, Chicken Parm and 3 cutlets were all well done. Reasonable prices. Clientele is on the older side, but I guess that's typical for this type of restaurant.

We've dined here on many occasions, but New Year's Eve was a little disappointing. We dined early and had a reservation. No problem with the service, but we were disappointed in our entrees. We both ordered grilled swordfish, and they looked delicious, but they were somewhat tough. No, we did not tell our server, but we probably should have -... More

The eggplant parmesan was too heavily breaded and soggy even though I requested the marinara sauce on the side in the hope of receiving a plate of crispy eggplant parm. The molten chocolate cake dessert was excellent.

We had high hopes based on TA reviews and were looking for a nice local place. It was busy but we were able to get 7p reservations on a Friday. Hostest was friendly. Waitress was also friendly but not very attentive. Once our meals came we did not see her for quite awhile after we were done eating. Then we... More
