I returned to Rovali's and tried something new. I'm usually a fish/seafood eater. Tried the Italian Sausage Sandwich this time. Good choice. House made sausage, juicy and just spicy enough + red sauce not too thin or sweet + tucked into a nice sandwich baguette= one satisfying and filling sammie! A nice spot to have lunch after the Ogden Farmer's... More

My friend was visiting from out town. We always go out to eat, but usually to the same old places. I had recently heard of rovali's. So that's where we decided to go. It was a late Saturday afternoon. Just between lunch rush and dinner rush. Most of the tables were full, but we were able to sit right down.(But... More

Ogden has a dearth of good restaurants so when Rovali's move from Layton to Ogden I was thrilled that another Italian restaurant was going to open in Ogden.

After reading all of the reviews of Rovali's we were excited to try it this weekend. We drove all the way from Logan and it was well worth it. The atmosphere of Rovali's is everything that you could want in a restaurant- location, music, food and service. They had great low calorie options available for those who were counting calories...

We went to rovalis on a quiet afternoon. We were greeted and sat promptly and I was immediately sold on the special of the day. I can't pronounce it, but it was a blend of seafood in a brothy sauce over fettuccine noodles. The minestrone was excellent and the service was very professional and not overbearing. I planned on trying... More

Howdy Oldiebutfoodie! Once you taste our Chocolate Decadence cake you will want to try our awesome Cannoli! I have mentioned it before on here, but people are comparing ours with the Cannolis' on the east coast. I still think ours are the best! lol Thanks, Alex More

So, I’ve been tracking this place on TripAdvisor for some time now. As of this writing it is rated #3 of all 300+ restaurants in the Ogden area. Eating out is difficult for my wife and I due to our very busy lives. For our anniversary we were able to schedule, and plan, a dinner out for ourselves. I immediately... More

This is our first visit but won't be our last. The eggplant Parmesan and minestrone soup were delicious. The bread tasted home made. We enjoyed the choco decadence cake. Asia took care of our needs.

Hi Masseyfj5, I think getting such a nice review from a first time guest is awesome! The next time you come in please try one of my favorite dishes; it's called Lumarzo and it consists of Angel Hair pasta in a lite tomato basil sauce! I like mine with grilled chicken and mushrooms! We hope to see you soon!! Alex More
