My daughter was married on the lovely patio & the reception was held in the restaurant. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was festive and the staff was attentive to our needs. The managers were easy to work with and accommodating to special diet needs, decor wishes and clean-up help. Our guests were impressed with the facilities and wait staff.... More

I'm not one to try new things. I love italian food but haven't found a good Ogden restaurant--so I stick to making my own. I'd heard good things about Rovali's for a while and finally decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. These are the things in order of appearance that made my first visit... More

The restaurant itself is really nothing special, but the people who worked there were wonderful! And the food was excellent. Best Caesar salad I've had anywhere in years. Pasta was fresh, sauces great. This was a really nice place. Would recommend to anyone.

Hello Muggs, Thanks for the great compliments! We really like to treat our entire staff like family and it shows in their relationships to our guests. Did they also tell you that once you eat at Rovali's you are also part of the family? If not, I am telling you that now!! Welcome to the family! :-) Alex More

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'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.

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
