My wife and I have eaten here often and we have never been disappointing. The food has always been very good and so is the service. If you are in the mood for good Italian food, this is the place to come.

After traveling all day, we asked at our hotel for a good place to eat. The clerk suggested Ruffino’s locates in the old train station. We walked in and the aroma of simmering tomatoes told us we were in for a treat. My husband had...More
