“Pork parm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Love to hit Ruffino's with the wife when we have some free time. Great great atmosphere and fine service. Very nice wine selection too. Some food dishes are out of this word and some are leave a little to be desired but overall a great place for a night out.

“Try their lobster dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

My wife and I come there some three of four times a year, on Sunday, for a live Maine lobster celebration. For $19.95 we enjoy the house salad and garlic bread, preceding a full 1.5 pounds lobster, nicely prepared and presented, accompanied with crispy vegetable, coming from the oven. Today we added a glass of a very fruity sauvignon blanc (Oyster Bay, New Zealand), and had a wonderful experience at this classy very friendly restaurant. If lobster is not your favorite, you will find many tasty options. One of our favorite places in Baton Rouge.

“Below Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We have been here on a number of occasions over the years with friends, and have always been disappointed. It is not an Italian restaurant, or even a real restaurant at all, but a glorified LSU sports bar with mediocre food. We have been served overcooked and undercooked food, tasteless vegetables and less then prime beef. All in the context of a long wait and with a smug “see how busy we are” sneer. Lots better places to go, unless you like the LSU hype.
