“Excellent Neighborhood Italian”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

have been going her for many years.. they have everything you can think of from pizza and calzones to pasta and calamari. Their balsamic chicken and broccoli rape (full order side dish) are my personal favorites... their portions are generous and dinners come with small loaf of the best homemade bread. Their Special Salad ( mozzarella and roasted peppers and tomatoes with greens) is also delicious. eat in or order out.. Mangia!

“A Northern NJ Classic”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Moved from North Jersey many years ago. One of the things I miss the most is being able to go to Rudy’s on a regular basis. The Rudy’s special salad is spectacular. I have had many chef salads in my day but none can compare to this one. I also crave their penne and broccolirabe. I used to special order penne with broccolirabe / garlic and shrimp. I often try and recreate this version but it can’t hold a candle to the original. The pizza is wonderful also. When I come to visit family back home in NJ I tell them don’t bother cooking, let’s get Rudy’s take out !!

“Great local pizza”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I have been here many times for take out pizza and other take out Italian. These guys are all pretty fast and well coordinated in serving up lots of pizza's. These guys seemed to have worked here forever. This is obviously a family business. They offer the best pizza in Closter. I also like Big Jim's Pizza in New Milford and Alessandro's in Haworth. Pizza is great when I am in the mood for good pizza.

“Great food at a great price”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Enjoyed dinner with the kids before a movie. Saturday night, fast service, usual top-quality food that's easy on the wallet. The hardest part is trying to figure out what to order based on all of the delicious choices.

“Neighborhood constant”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

I have been buying pizza here for at least 10 years.

Quality and service has been consistently good. While I usually do take out their dining room is a step up from a regular pizza joint.

My favorite thing outside of their pizza is the Rudy's Special Salad.
