Good Food, Excellent Value, Fast Friendly Service

Easy to find in Port Jefferson. Ample pay parking. Atmosphere charming. Bar was hopping. Welcoming staff. The three of us went for the prix fixe dinner menu (appetizer, dinner, dessert) - $28.95. Excellent value with something for everyone. We started with the fried calamari, served with... read more

Restaurant week here we come...hope Ruvo rises to the occasion. Long Island comes into season and the town will be humming. We are frequent patrons...but tonight was not up to par. Caesar salad was fine, fresh, dressing light and tasty. The main course-eggplant rollatini is usually a favorite but tonight the mozzarella topping was over cooked and the ricotta filling... More

Our book club has been meeting here for the last few months. We enjoy a terrific $10 lunch and leisurely discuss our book. Be sure to make a reservation as a lunch crowd quickly fills up the place. Check out their banquet room and menu for special occasions. Off-street parking is available near the entrance. You must pay the meter... More

Great food for sure. Our table wasn't ready on time, but wasn't significantly late. Also, the waiter forgot a drink order at the end. Small things overall. They didn't seem "happy" to see us there. Felt slightly less welcome. I would however go here again, because anyone can have an off night, and it wasn't that bad. Besides, the quality... More

Dined on Presidents Day and were very disappointed in our meal during this visit. My lobster ravioli were swimming in oil with not much seafood. My husbands chicken part was spicy. We ended with cream puffs that were the total opposite of "flaky" or pastry like - they were cold, tough and rubbery! We've eaten here before with a better... More

This is the best $10 lunch menu I have seen. Must be 25 items available from sandwiches to pasta and seafood. Had the shrimp scampi over risotto which was excellent. Staff was attentive and only drawback was the noise level. Part of this might have been the very large group of women dining together at the front. Would definitely try... More

We're regulars at Ruvo and there's lots of reasons. The food is just tremendous -- we know we can always get lots of wonderful Italian classics, but also inventive seafood and meat dishes. Lots of pasta choices. Terrific appetizers and desserts. Very strong wine list with lots of reasonably priced wines; terrific bar and bartenders. We always feel welcome by... More
