“Italian dinner at its worst!”
Review of Rulli's

Reviewed September 2, 2012

We were looking to eat in a local restaurant. Rulli's seemed to fit the bill for us. We were in for a surprise. The service was adequate, but fell well below what we expected. The food was less than palatable. The chicken was a frozen stuffed breast that I could pick up at any grocery, but the lasagna was the worst. Layers upon layer of pasta with little to no meat and sauce-Not to mention the total absence of cheese. We love trying locally run restaurants, but wish we had gone to Subway!!

We are frequent Thursday night visitors. The pizza is awesome and the karaoke is a blast! Karaoke starts early, so you can get out & have a good time and get home to bed. The crowd is a great crowd, not a young rowdy crowd. Middle-age & up! Love it!

We were looking for a place to have a cocktail and a dinner. Any locals reccommended this place. At first we thought we would sit in the bar and have a meal. Indiana does not have the smoking bans in public places that we are accostumed to here in NY. The bar was smoky and we decied to go into the restaurant part of the establishment. Our waitress must have been fairly new because she did not have an answer to any questions we asked her regarding the menu. The food was fair. Salad bar was included. The items on the salad bar looked dried out.

The buffet was adequate. It had a good pizza, so so Asian salad, lots of carb stuff and canned puddings, chicken, deep fried potatoes. The lasagna was disappointing: It was a huge stack of noodles with thin layer of sauce in between. Only two layers had a cheese and meat component. There was no ricotta that I could find. It had no pizzazz, no subtle blending of spice flavors and cheeses that I expected. My sense was that this dish had been microwaved since there was no browning of the cheese on top and it was obviously made in this bowl. The bruschetta was good, but wow how I miss the flavors of oregano and other spices. It wasn't worth the hour long drive ( 10 minutes maybe) nor the prices charged.

We needed to carb up before our bike ride, so we chose Rulli's for dinner. They have a buffet every day which consists of salad, pizza, pasta and wings. We looked it over and decided to order off the menu. We chose the Southern Italian Sampler. It was lasagne, spinach stuffed chicken, tortellini and spaghetti. We each had a trip to the salad bar and then shared the entree which was plenty of food for two. We are not sure if this was a one time error, or the standard, but our lasagne did not have the creamy ricotta or sausage described on the menu. It had layers of pasta with no discernible sauce or cheese. It was very dense and not very good, and in hindsight I wish we had sent it back.
