The same owners La Tavola in Sayville, the food is much different but is just as good. The seating is very cute because some are church pews. Try the shrimp and filet dish it is real good.

We visited Port Jeff for my boyfriend's birthday and after reading up on where to eat, I made reservations at Ruvo. There was 5 of us and they seated us promptly and they were very busy! The service was good, not memorable but certainly not horrible. The menu is nice and they have a good selection of drinks. Everyone was... More

Received gift certificate for anniversary. First time we ate there was okay and service was very slow. Food was just okay nothing to rave about. Second time we figured lets give this place a second chance. Well I don't think we will return unless they change.

We were a party of eight for lunch. Our reservation was for 1:30; and the restaurant was crowded. However, we were there until almost 4 PM - no rushing us to order or finish our meal so the table could be turned over. The $10 Lunch Menu had many choices - from salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, pasta specials seafood, etc. All... More

We were told we would be charged a $14 shared plate fee. Even after explaining appetizer would be one dinner the entree the other. Still no change. We did... More

The bar food menu is extensive and very good. There are flat breads. Lobster Mac and cheese, salads, PEI mussels with shrimp, burgers, etc. The Happy Hour drinks are good. Kevin, the head bar tender, is a gem. Great personality and raconteur in a low-key manner. Love him!

Went on a Friday afternoon for lunch. They offered a $10.00 lunch special. Selections were abundant and delicious. Also indulged in a dessert (extra) but well worth it. Highly recommend.

I booked because of the write ups on tripadviser and I was not disappointed. I started off with the Asparagus and Pea Risotto, my partner had the Grandma D’s Veal Meatballs and both were delicious. For the main course I had the North Fork Lobster Sliders, they were good but a bit salty. I know seafood can be salty sometimes... More
