We loved this place! The food was excellent (I had the ravioli and my sister had the lasagna) and the server was very kind and attentive. Even the owner Alex came out and introduced himself, which was incredibly personal and a wonderful feeling. We will be back!

I love the lasagna personally it's one of the best lasagnas I have ever eaten. Save room for the amazing desserts too! They're all made... More

I've been twice with my husband. 1st time was a 5 star rating. 2nd time was a 1-2 star rating. So, I've chosen to rate it 3 stars to even it all out. First time we went, the actual owner came to our table. He found out this was our first time coming, and was delighted to answer any questions... More

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

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...
