My wife and I went to Ruvo for the first time last night. She got the chicken Parm. Ruvos sauce was definitely one of the better sAuces I've had, even compared to some of the hoidy toidy places. I had the Scarpiello and was not disappointed. It appears that the chef here cooks with a lot of spice and flavor,... More

We are big fans if Ruvo West and continue to try to become fans of Ruvo East. Unfortunately, our experiences have been inconsistent. When it "hits" it is fabulousness, but when it doesn't, it is meh. Today's lunch was merely ok. We arrived at 1:00 and we were only given breakfast menus. When we overheard neighboring table order lunch, our... More

Made a reservation weeks in advance asking for a table "on the side, don't want to be crunched in the middle". Hostess suggested a booth - great!. When we arrived on time we were made to wait 7 minutes (why) although the restaurant was not full. We were then led to a table smack dab in the middle of all... More

Recently had lunch here with friends; our first visit. Extensive $10 lunch menu with plenty of solid choices. I really enjoyed the Shrimp fra Diavalo and my partner had a well-prepared and presented Sole. Good wine list - we shared a bottle of a good Merlot for around $30. Then there was the service....got quick attention when we first arrived... More

this restaurant is a joke. from the manager to the staff, everything was a failure. our waitress was obviously a drug addict of some sort, stummbling and stammering her words, spilling stuff and makeing conversation which made no sence. i ordered an octoberfest and was quickly offered a pumpkin ale, which she said, "was like the same thing." uhh, no,...

Considering this was our first time here, we expected exceptional food service. When we first ordered drinks, the waitress came out looking like she was under the influence of something and proceeded to spill an entire glass of beer all over two of my family members. She then began to blame them for her mistake! Meanwhile she looked like she... More

If you are looking for a restaurant where you can get a decent drink, enjoy good food and have a normal conversation, try Ruvo. There is a U-shaped bar that is comfortable and friendly. The atmosphere is a little dark so we sat at a table under the wall sconce rather then a booth that only had a candle. Our... More

We've been to Ruvo several times in the last few years. Each time our experience was fantastic. The service was amazing, very attentive, very informative, and went out of their way to make sure you were happy. The food was great, very tasty, served warm, and timely. The atmosphere is average, but cosy, and suitable for the price. We will... More

We had our child's Baptism here because we love the food. We had the side room (round) which holds 50 people. We had 32 adults and 13 children. It is not the largest room but the food is fantastic. People loved the stuffed chicken and the cheesecake :)
