We went to rovalis on a quiet afternoon. We were greeted and sat promptly and I was immediately sold on the special of the day. I can't pronounce it, but it was a blend of seafood in a brothy sauce over fettuccine noodles. The minestrone was excellent and the service was very professional and not overbearing. I planned on trying... More

So, I’ve been tracking this place on TripAdvisor for some time now. As of this writing it is rated #3 of all 300+ restaurants in the Ogden area. Eating out is difficult for my wife and I due to our very busy lives. For our anniversary we were able to schedule, and plan, a dinner out for ourselves. I immediately... More

This is our first visit but won't be our last. The eggplant Parmesan and minestrone soup were delicious. The bread tasted home made. We enjoyed the choco decadence cake. Asia took care of our needs.

With a 20 month old, my wife and I don't get out much just the two of us. Last time we had gone out was January 17th when my wife got a babysitter for my birthday. So, I was surprised when she informed me she had gotten a babysitter for our little bundle of energy on a night when there... More

The food here is quite good if not authentically Italian. The service was pleasant and prompt and prices are reasonable.

Rovali's is a great place if your looking for good but not great Italian food. I visited mid dinner hour on a Friday night. The thing that pulled me in was live music. The service was friendly and reasonably prompt. I tried the lasagna with meat sauce. As I said, it was good, solid enjoyable food but not what I'd... More

Wonderful food, excellent service, good music. Friday night in Ogden. Rovali's is located in the historic district, easy to fine, nice stroll after dinner. We had a delightful evening and will stop again in Ogden. .

I have tried several dishes here, but my fave is the Linguine with Clams. I could make a meal out of the sauce with their delish rolls. The sandwiches and salads are very good also. Andrea is great! LOVE her desserts! The people there are always friendly and the service great.

Having lived in Italy for three years I think I know a little something about Italian food. Rovali's is one of the better Italian restaurants we have eaten at outside of Italy.
