Truly amazing! I really wish Rufino's was much closer to my house so I could go all the time. I've been going there whenever I can for the past 7 or 8 years. It's a bit unassuming and in a very modest shopping center (it looks as if they've begun to make the surrounding area a bit nicer). It's the kind of family-style Italian restaurant that I love.
Much of the food here is homemade. They make many of the pastas fresh. The bread you get before the meal starts is quite fantastic as well. Often I start with one of their pizzas, and I really love them!! Chicken parm is one of my favorites anywhere- so thin and crispy and delicious!! Tonight I took a couple bites out of the eggplant parmigiana and it was also delicious! The sauces are excellent.
What's great about Rufino's is they give you a lot for a very modest price! Each meal includes soup or salad for pretty much between 10 and 13 bucks. Whatever you do, make sure you get the minestrone!! It's phenomenal!
Can't wait to go back sometime soon when I am in the OC!
By the way, if you are staying around Disneyland, this is a FANASTIC choice to have dinner or lunch- it's very close to the parks!!
