Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Ruvo West! It's always a pleasure dining at this restaurant!:) Highly recommend!"

  • "A run of the mill restaurant with acceptable food. Chicken parm was tasty but chicken was dry. Ordered ice cream for desert. Got two little scoops in a soup bowel, no whipped cream or garnish. For $7.00 it should have had a better presentation."

  • "We go to Ruvo West almost once a week for dinner, and the food and service are consistently great. We have sampled just about everything on the menu, and I recommend everything. The "Ruvo Classics" on the menu are wonderful Italian comfort food dishes."

  • "Went with a group, we all had the prix fixe. Everyone was pleased with their meals, the portions were good size & the service was excellent."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "3 Overcooked Meals - Poor Service. Do I need to say more. The waitress never came back to the table to see how our meals were. My husband had to flag her down, after 10 minutes, to ask for a small serving of Parmigian Cheese. The busboys were real efficient at trying to clear the table - we guess they needed to turn over the table. Desert was excellent but it did not make up for the main courses. Sorry, we won't be going back."

  • "Overall prices were expensive for decent food. Ambiance and look of the place makes it nice for a date or a relaxing dinner with family and friends. From the wine list to the entrees everything could be found better for less.. But it's all a matter of your willingness to travel. Ruvo's keeps a nice local restaurant and the food was (good) but not impressive for the price you pay."

  • "I love this restaurant. I have been coming here for years. The food is always fresh. The wait staff is always friendly. I have never Gone out for Christmas eve dinner before. But I will say that the dinner my husband and I had here was fabulous. I think this will be my Christmas eve go to from now on. This is a never be disappointed restaurant in a lovely and quaint Village. Love it"

  • "This was my 3rd trip to Ruvo, and each time has been a great experience. We shared an appetizer of scallops over a bed of risotto, which was creamy and flavorful! The scallops were seared perfectly and were delicious. We also shared an appetizer from the 'specials' menu of shrimp and brussel sprouts. The shrimp were huge (again, cooked perfectly) and the brussel sprouts were sliced thinly, mixed with onion and packed with lots of flavor. I had the salmon, which I'd had before. It was just as delicious as I'd remembered, and my friend had pumpkin ravioli from the 'specials'. We both enjoyed every bite of our meals and finished it off with bread pudding ala mode. Fantastic!! The waitress was attentive and courteous. I will be back for sure!!"

  • "Went to Ruvo with some new friends and as always came away with a wonderful dining experience. The food is always so tasty, well served and presented and although the restaurent is always full, the tables are placed so you don't feel you are dining with your neighbors. Let's not forget about the Gorgeous, wood floors, wide panel, reclaimed, full of character. Ambience, menu and good friends. How can you miss!?"

  • "We decided to go last minute and were able to book a reservation. Brought our kids (8 and 5). There is a large kids menu, and they both ate their meals. My wife and I split the fried calamari and it comes with two different sauces: a spicy marinara and a horseradish based sauce. Calamari was lite and fresh, batter wasn't too heavy and perfectly done. Very good appetizer. My wife had the grilled tuna and I had the chicken parm. Both very good. We finished off with an apple crumb pie a la mode while the kids had their scoop of ice cream included with their meal. Service was excellent. Highly recommend."

  • "We were searching for a good restaurant in an accessible area to meet a friend and found this via Open Table. It had excellent reviews so we booked our reservation sight unseen. The reception staff and waiter were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Our waiter made recommendations and checked back with us as needed but allowed us to have extended conversation. We never felt rushed. The food portions (lobster pasta, steak, salmon) were tasty and well prepared; desserts were generous and beautifully plated. We would definitely come again if we were in the area."

  • "The food is slightly over priced for the quality and quantity of food received. Overall the steak here is the best in Greenlawn. The wine list is pretty good and they have nice specials. Try this place if your looking to have a nice, quite meal with family or show a friend around. They don't deviate from their menu if you ask for a request so keep that in mind."
