Ambience was great, food was pretty good, prices were okay, but what got my goad was the prima donna they had serving us in the side room for 32 people!!! We had one freaking waiter for 32 people, this was seriously inadequate for serving meals and providing drinks. I ordered a bottle of wine, he brings out one class. And... More

Hello Kenneth, I am sorry that you didn't have a great experience at Rovali's Ristorante, but I must respectfully disagree with part of your review. 1. We would never assign one server to a party of 32 people. Our policy is to assign at least 2 servers to a party of 18 or more. 2. We often have larger parties... More

I went into the restaurant early--a little after 5 on a Friday evening after getting a whiff of garlic. There were plenty of places to sit, and the server, Anna, was friendly and attentive. I picked out the valpolicella, 8" pizza appetizer and the spaghetti with meat sauce. All of it was fabulous and really hit the spot. It doesn't... More

We were walk in with a large group. They quickly made a space for us. The food was excellent. The dessert was exceptional. they have pizza, but it is much more than a pizza restaurant.

This was the highlight of our first day in Ogden. Another great Tripadvisor recommendation! This restaurant would certainly qualify as number one in the area. We were delighted with everything at Rovali's. The lunch specials are a great value too. Don't miss the fried zucchini appetizer.

Went there Friday at 7:30 and there was a 20 minute wait. Well, it was worth the wait. The red sauce is wonderful. The Italian sausage was hot but great. Even though they were very busy that night the service was great. Very attentive. Prices are very reasonable. Don't miss the if your travels bring you to Ogden.

After a Golden Spike ceremony reenactment, a tour of Antelope Island and an interesting street walk on "must see" Historic 25th Street, we found this sweet spot! First time in Ogden and this was worth our visit. Had two traditional Italian dishes, meatballs with pasta and seafood linguine. Meatballs were served cut flat with lots of mushrooms & cheese and...

We made reservations after the concierge at our hotel stated that this was the best Italian restaurant around. He must not get out very often...the food was just like my mama used to make...all from a can. The only stand out item was the fresh garlic rolls and the fried zucchini was nice.

I've eaten at Rovali's Ristorante Italiano several times, and each time I've been served a delicious meal with awesome service from their staff. Great atmosphere, great music, and really just a great establishment. This is definitely someplace you'll have to visit if you haven't already, because I can assure you that you'll keep coming back.
