We come to Rovali's as often as we can. The food is always great. The sampler meals are on my short list. Don't forget the dessert. Go chocolate any thing or carrot cake.

Somehow had missed Rovali's til last night. They take reservations but was already booked. However receptionist advised walking in around 5:30pm-6pm would not be a problem. We were met by Alex (the owner) and immediately felt like a place we would return to and had not had a bite. The wine selection is good and yes there were specials. The... More

We recently hosted our company party at Rovali's. The food was great but the service was even better. From my first phone call to make the arrangements, to walking out the door, the entire staff was great. We had a private room that was ready on time and very comfortable. They had printed a full color menu just for our... More

We enjoyed our dinner on Saturday night. The atmosphere and music was great. So was the food! I have no complaints but the server who was super slow at the end and as it was almost closing time we left without a dessert. We sat in the little room on the right.

I have been to Rovali's several times and I have never been disappointed. The German chocolate cheesecake is outstanding. Their regular cheesecake is also stupendous. Their Lasagna is wonderful. Overall, Rovali's is a very very great place to dine.

The food here was pretty good. They brought rolls for everyone that ordered an entree. When my friend asked for 2 extra rolls for her kids they charged her for them. I was very surprised by this. However the limoncello tiramisu was amazing!

Ravioli was ok, but sauce not as flavorful as I prefer. And I love a good salad as a starter, but thus seemed to he what i buy from the grocery store in a plastic bag. Good atmosphere though.
