My fiancé and I went to Rovali's for the first time on Saturday. We wanted something sit-down, quiet and simple; Rovali's was perfect! The service was fast and friendly, the environment was comfortable and the food was excellent. Everything we ordered was delicious! Garlic bread, peach italian sodas, lasagna, seafood alfredo, and tiramisu--all for a phenomenal price. 10/10, would recommend.

The conception of this restaurant is very interesting and the story is inside the menu. It explains the personal touch of the restaurant and is a truly typical Italian family owned and all member of the family run, from the youngest to the oldest, which includes three generations. The selection of food dishes is fine as is the selection of... More

I only been there once for a work party, the food is good but nothing outstanding. Place is clean and good service, it's not a place I would choose to have dinner again if there's other choices.

First time eating here tonight. It came highly recommended. It did not disappoint. I had the raviolis, lasagna, and fettuccini sample plate. It was really good. I was surprised by the all cheese lasagna. It was very good. I had the blackberry mascarpone cake. It was very moist with a hint of lemon in the icing. Definitely will come back.

Hi Brian, There's nothing better than a satisfied customer who came based on a recommendation! I'm glad we were able to make you a fan! The dish you were referring to is called The Tour of Rovali's and it's definitely a customer favorite! We change featured entrees, desserts and drinks every single week. Stop in and see us again anytime!... More

Good food, friendly staff, great atmosphere. We will keep coming back. The menu has a good variety, something for everyone. Nice wine selection, beautiful desserts, yummy pizza, and full dinners. Homemade items that make the difference between going to Rovali's and the chain places who serve frozen and microwaved stuff.

Great food and great service!!!! It is really nice going here because besides having a great meal the service you get is outstanding. Waitresses are very pleasant and very helpful, never have to sit and wait for a drink being refilled or and order coming out! The desserts are outstanding and homemade! You just have to try their cookies!
