I have been here with friends twice now. Each time the food has been tasty and the waitors friendly. Only downside is that it is small and you should book a table in advance to make sure to get a seat.

Authentic and fantastic Italian food with knowledgeable and service minded waiters. The locale is quite noisy, especially during peak hours.

We were lucky enough to get in a few days before the closing for summer holidays. Gnocchi and wine were wonderful. Highly recommended if you are accustomed to fine Italian dining!

Had a dinner here with 8 colleagues in January and we all had a very nice time. We had the same waiter the whole evening and she was always smiling even though the place was packed and kept excellent track of all orders through the evening. The food was great and the location is very central and nice. Highly recommendable.

After a disappointing restaurant on our first evening in Oslo we just happened to walk past Ruffino en route back from a visit to the amazing Vigeland Park the next day. It looked great and based on reviews we decided to cancel another dinner reservation to try it - we love Italian food but typically stay with 'local' cuisine when... More
