Hi Javid Z, Thank you for your kind review! I do apologize for the salad... our Caesar salads come with Romaine lettuce and yours may have gotten mixed up with our house side salad. I will let Kim (my wife) know you appreciated her service! Thanks again, for visiting us! Alex :-) More

Needed a place for lunch and this was a good pick. It was in a historic building on 25th St. near the Union Station museum where we were visiting.

We have been eating here for years. Their pasta, sandwiches and salads are all very good (we have had just about everything here) but it is their desserts that really shine. We sometimes go there just to see which desserts they have and grab a couple to take home. I love their coffee and drinks also. This is one of... More

My adult son and I ate here while in the area for skiing. Rovalli's is on historic 25th Street, an attractive, restored part of the downtown area.

I eat at Rovali's all the time and it never disappoints. Their lasagna is my favorite- it has such a creamy texture to it that I have never encountered anywhere else. On certain days they have an italian wedding soup that is to die for, but you have to hit the right day and its irregular. Otherwise, have their minestrone.... More

Hi Vic S, You have described one of our very best dishes! Our lasagna is simplistic in nature, but very complex in flavor! We use 3 cheeses in our lasagna and it makes it unique. I also think it's really cool that you being a regular guest would take the time to write us such a nice review! Much thanks!!... More

Rovali's is a wonderful family-owned restaurant. The smell as you enter the building is divine. The serving staff was very friendly and attentive to my needs. The red sauce was scrumptious and I wanted to try everything on the menu. I wanted to dive into a vat of their wonderful rolls and never get out. Their desserts are heavenly and... More

Me and my wife decided to try something new and saw great reviews for this place. Great service and tasty food helped set the mood.

We went to Ravoli's on our first trip to Ogden because it was highly recommended. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome.

In trying to replace my favorite Italian restaurant we tried Rovali's. We were not disappointed by our selections. So the first visit you have to try the Lasagna right? It was very good, sauce was full of flavor, cheese was not overwhelming and the noodles soft but not mushy. Completely filled me up ... disappointed ... wait until you see... More
