- Open Table doesn't matter to RuvostretchDined on 10/25/2014I left the service blank as we had a bad experience as described below and a very good dining experience. My Open Table reservation didn't matter to Ruvo this past Sat. ngt as we were seated a half hour past the confirmed time and walk-ins were seated prior!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Neighborhood gem!CincydeeDined on 10/22/2014Went on a wednesday night... Nice and quiet with 1/2 price bottles of wine. A perfect night to go and talk and take your time with friends. Price fixe was great, and food was great... As usual!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Always fabulousEllenSVIPDined on 10/17/2014We have dined at Ruvo West and East for over ten years. As always the food is outstanding and the service fabulous. Was great to see our old friends Rose and Todd who are always a pleasure to see at Ruvo East. Ruvo is probably one of the few restaurants that remains a shining star.Special Features:

- CompetitionL0vr2eatNYVIPDined on 9/27/2014They're falling off, the food quality has gone down dramatically as did their portions. The menu is way overpriced for the quality of food and portion served.I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great date night spot!makeitbluVIPDined on 8/27/2014We are regular customers and Ruvo has really stepped up their game over the past few years. The food, service and ambience are very good. Week night pre-fix menu included generous portions. Only item on menu to avoid is chicken parm.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I LOVE this GEM!!!YummymummyDined on 8/23/2014I have come to this restaurant on more then one occasion and dining here is always a great choice. The food is SO FRESH and DELICIOUS.....the menu is inviting and eclectic without being pretentious. The atmosphere reminds me of a rustic italian villa and the service is always fantastic. I could eat here everyday. But then I'd have to invest in some serious stretchy pants!!!! Thank you RUVO!!!!Special Features:
- Great time had by all!TownofHuntingtonFoodieDined on 8/16/2014We went with another couple on a Saturday night last week. They asked to go back to Ruvo West after being with us there once before.

- Fabulous!DrCynPizzulliVIPDined on 7/26/2014It has been a very long time since we dined at Ruvo (maybe 15 years). We don't remember it being that remarkable back then. But this visit we were completely wow-ed by it. Our dinners were so original and delicious. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The decor is adorable and it has a wonderful ambiance. We will not wait long to return this time.Special Features:
- Excellent dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 7/26/2014Had a wonderful experience at Ruvo on Saturday night. Our waiter Todd was excellent and gave us guidance upon our request. The beet salad with goat cheese with pistactios and swordfish with lemon ravioli was delicious. My husband had one of the flatbreads which he liked very much as well. The ambiance was very nice - they had a large party celebrating a birthday and the sound level was fine - not too noisy even though this large group was near us. This was our first experience dining at Ruvo and we will definitely have dinner there again soon.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/25/2014We went for the live music. The excellent food was an added bonus!Special Features:

- bellenVIPDined on 6/29/2014Food and service was great! only downside is the parking meters and wondering if you are going to have to run out to feed the meter..........Special Features:
- ReservationsFoodyDined on 6/26/2014Although we had reservations, we had to wait for a good hour. The restaurant was very noisy, you had to shout to one another to be heard. I totally enjoyed the food, it was delicious. We had no idea that on Thursday evenings there was music and an extended Happy Hour, never would had made reservations had we known.Special Features:
- ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/24/2014Service was poor, waitress was not pleasant, had to search for someone to request anything (like clearing away appetizer plates before dinner arrived) Have been here before and service was good, unfortunately this time it was bad
- Quaint restaurant in GreenlawnLotusVIPDined on 6/20/2014Ruvo is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of Greenlawn. With it's charming decor and attentive staff it is a find. The wine list was extensive and the food delicious. The short ribs were particularly good!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lunch spot!CenterportfoodieDined on 6/3/2014The price fix lunch was excellent. There are many entree selections to choose from. The atmosphere and decor are very nice and the waitstaff couldn't do enough for you. We will definitely return!Special Features:
- Great DinnerDennisDined on 6/1/2014Our party of 6 went to celebrate a family event. Priced fixed dinner menu was very reasonable. Appetizers, especially the short ribs risotto were great. My steak was as good as any of famous steakhouses. Then desserts came which topped off a great meal.Special Features:

- We'll be backEdG1111VIPDined on 5/3/2014Good food, very good service. We'll be back. Simple as that. Aside: two women at the next table felt servers passed them by before they could order drinks: the first round was served them gratis.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great MealGeo75Dined on 4/27/2014Have never had a bad dinner here . Great food and serviceSpecial Features:
- Delicious!!KLO1013VIPDined on 4/26/2014Once again, enjoyed every minute of our meal here! We were seated immediately. Our waiter was cheerful, and attentive. We shared the calamari app. (though the horseradish remoulade did not appear to have any horseradish in it at all, but the marinara was good) and a beet salad. Both of which were tasty and done well. We also both opted to have the same entree of the cavatelli with lobster, white beans and spinach. The tomato-basil sauce was slightly sweet and delicious! I just wish there had been a little more lobster....but you can never have enough lobster, ever! All in all, it was a very good dinner and we will continue to dine here. It's a guaranteed win!Special Features:
- Ruvo for lunchOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/26/2014Had a nice lunch with family. This is our 5th time doing a ladies lunch. The service is always wonderful. The menu was different this time and we all enjoyed it very much.Special Features:
- RuthVIPDined on 4/25/2014Ruvo West has never failed to disappoint. Both of us agreed that the mussels appetizer was the best we have ever had--anywhere, including Brussels. Absolute perfection with a bit of kick!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Price FixeOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/24/2014We live in the neighborhood which means I can walk to this restaurant. We've been here quite a few times and have always had a great dinner. Not sure what has happened but we were disappointed in our meal. It's been about a year since we've been there and the food just wasn't up to standards. Every dish seemed heavy handed in taste. We had the price fixe meal and we both started with the short rib topped over risotto and a balsamic reduction. The balsamic reduction over powered the dish and was very strong along with the short ribs. My wife had the rollatini with spaghetti which was heavy handed on basil and nothing to write home to nona about. I had the pork chops with a sweet apple sauce and escarole and beans. Disappointing!
- Impressive dinner pre-fixmakeitbluVIPDined on 4/21/2014Ruvo has really stepped up their game over the past few years. Food was delicious and very generous portion sizes for the pre-fix dinner menu. Very nice place for date night.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ruvo West never disappoints!luvdininghereVIPDined on 4/16/2014We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Ruvo West! It's always a pleasure dining at this restaurant!:) Highly recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BETTER CHOICES NEARBYBenDoverDined on 4/12/2014A 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.
- Always a delight.BarbarDined on 4/3/2014Ruvo's menu always offers something new and exciting as well as old favorites. The food is always first rate and the service is warm and friendly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
