Went there with my significant other to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We got a very nice cozy table in a quiet part of the restaurant. Our waitress was wonderful, and helped us choose a wine and told us about their home-pressed oils. The food was great, and it truly tasted like we were in Italy. It wasn't expensive at all considering the service, food and atmosphere. When it was time to leave the maitre'd and our waitress shook our hands on the way out. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for Italian cuisine in Oslo at a very reasonable price.

No problems making reservations and changing them last minute. Excellent service, food was great. One of us asked to make some changes with the main course and there was a misunderstanding, but this was not a problem and they fixed it at once. Prices were low too, which is a plus. I would go there again anytime!

We visited this resturant based on the previous reviews on trip advisor however we were quite disappointed with the quality of food. When you reach for the salt n pepper you know it's not seasoned correctly. In addition the pasta on the tortillene was far too thick n probably needed a little longer cooking. Value for money this place was fine, but not amazing. One plus....they have an amazing wine menu. Yes I would go again but I would want thinner pasta and more seasoning on the food.

Ruffino is a fantastic local restaurant, close to the royal palace.

The food is simple but beautifully presented and really flavoursome. Save room for the chocolate fondant!

The service is excellent and the atmosphere is very friendly.

The food is good value considering Oslos generally high prices.
