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

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

We went to Ruvo for a friends birthday. The Sunday Brunch was fantastic. The service & atmosphere is absolutely wonderful. Looking forward to going there again this weekend.

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
