Decided to try this restaurant on a busy Saturday night. We were able to get a table quickly. Live music was nice. Waitress was good. This isn't the place for a quick meal. We were perfectly fine with the pace of the meal since we wanted to talk and catch up with our friends. We had garlic cheese bread appetizer... More

We have eaten dinner at Rovali’s three times now; one time was a special “beer pairing”. The food is consistently good and the management is consistently better. The owner stops at each table and visits prior to you ordering so you can see (on his iPad) all the specials—including his daughter’s homemade desserts (worth the visit by themselves). The restaurant... More

We ate here because it was rated so highly on tripadvisor. The location was great, right on historic 25th street. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, especially the lighting-it was bright enough to see and enjoy the meal and company. The service was exceptional. The food was not the greatest, but still very good. If you like Italian food... More

We eat at Rovali's at least once a month and have always had great food and a fun and friendly environment. My sister had her wedding there and it was such a great experience.

My favorite restaurant. The food and the service is always good. But the best thing about Rovali's is the atmosphere. It's like one big family. Even if it's your first time going, you won't be a stranger for long.
