First visit to Ruzzine's left a good impression. Food excellent, prices very reasonable, service was attentive and friendly. I am going to assume and hope this is the high standard of the owners because I will be returning often given my very close proximity to the establishment. I did not get a chance to observe the finer attention to detail... More

We eat here several times a year - it is quite close and convenient - and the food is almost always very good! Service is friendly and casual - whether you eat at the bar, outside on the deck in nice weather - or in the dining room areas (this is a house converted to a restaurant) - the experience... More

I live very close to Ruzzine's and although I've only eaten here a handful of times, each time it has been delicious. We stopped there last night and quickly noticed the newly decorated interior - it was in need of refreshing. Our food was delicious - all 3 of us were quite pleased with our choices: beef on weck, a... More

I had some relatives in from out of town that were visiting because of a patient at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. When we arrived at the restaurant at 12:30 for lunch there was no one to be found at the bar or to seat us......finally a young lady arrived and looked for a table. Once we were seated in the...

Dear SIr, I can only apologize for the service that you received. I am not nor will I make excuses for the service, however, in defense of our restaurant which has excellent food and service 99% of the time, sometimes circumstances dictate actions. It just so happens that at that time we had a party of 10 with 10 separate... More

The burgers are outstanding, rated tops in Buffalo. What is exceptional, is the diverse menu, friendliness and their outdoor patio. Many choices, including Italian and many of the classic Buffalo foods, including fish fries and chicken wings.

This was the second time we have been here and enjoyed it both times. A charming older home made into a charming restaurant and bar. Last time they accommodated a party of 12 for us nicely and this time we tried the bisque--wow! we will be back!

I love this place. Amazing buffalo food. The stuffed banana peppers are the best I've ever had! I always enjoy the wings, buffalo chicken wrap and fresh salads. Great service, friendly and delicious! I love supporting local places! Definitely give it a try!

We went a day after going across the road and thought that these burgers were much better-BBQed not fried-very tasty. The restaurant itself was not crowded or noisy. We sat outside and wondered why people were lining up to go across the road when this is so much better. Staff were really nice. This old house used to be another... More
