About

This restaurant is permanently closed. My name is Rodolfo (Rudy) Amadio and, as new owner/manager, I hope to be welcoming you soon; I will be delighted to meet you in person if you visit. Maybe some of you already know me. My wife and I have been in the restaurant business in the Charlotte area for over 20 years, initially with the first wood fired brick pizza oven in the Charlotte area (Luisa's Pizzeria), currently with "Dolce Ristorante Italiano" (Dilworth area) and now with the brand new "Rudy's". The concept at Rudy's will be that of a neighborhood Italian restaurant, with a casual atmosphere, friendly prices for food and bar and very, very good food. For now is "arrivederci" and I sincerely hope you will come visit us soon and become a delighted patron.

Great taste and presentation. I like that food was fresh and healthy, no greasy at all. A little expensive but I enjoyed being there. Thank you!

First trip to Rudy's was Valentine's dinner. Given the large numbers of diners, it was a good experience. I had the eggplant parm w/ spaghetti; very good. My wife was happy with her entre as well. The selection of Italians wines was notable. Solid.

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. It was relaxing, not too noisy and the wine and food were delicious. We look forward to going back and trying other menu options.

Rudy's is an excellent choice if you're looking for authentic made from scratch Italian inspired food. It's consistent and doesn't disappoint. I had an outstanding grouper special with a light sauce along with capers & kalamata olives. My elderly mother had veal Marsala that was also an excellent choice. My husband had pasta with shrimp & raved about it as well. If you haven't been here yet, you don't know what you're missing!!

Tough to review. On one hand the mussels were fabulous and my wife had a very good shrimp, pasta and sun-dried tomato dish with seemingly fresh ingredients. But I ordered veal parmesan which was so obviously made ahead of time. The sauce was ok but the mozzarella cheese was under-cooked. It came with a small portion of spaghetti that was drowning in sauce. The service was very good and the owner/manager was visible and active with the patrons. I may have to try it again but, I mean, how do you screw up veal parm?

The place needs a major face lift. The place felt stuffy and dark. Food was good but would try other Italian places before we go back.

We are not local but were going to be in the area on our way to the airport to meet family. The food was good, but it was a Saturday night and the wait staff was busy. It was a nice change of pace for us and if we lived in the area, we would try it again.

We are transplants from the NYC area and we've been struggling to find authentic Italian food in Charlotte. After trying several other places, I was so thrilled that we finally found the real thing! The food was delicious (try the stuffed pepper appetizer) - as close as I've found to my Italian family's Sunday dinner in the South. All you struggling Italians here, take heart, Rudy's is legit. Make a reservation- it gets crowded

Consistently good food. Small and intimate setting. Mussels appetizer was delicious as was the stuffed mushrooms. My husband had the veal special which was great and my pasta was wonderful. No room for dessert but heard it was fantastic. Great service and value.

We have been eating at Rudy's for many many years and we are never disappointed with the food or the service.
I love the Pollo Valdosta- the chicken comes out very tender every time and the sauce is superb.
Try the in house gelato. Just let being in Italy.

Saturday night dinner with friends. Good service, nice Italian fare at a reasonable value. Only disappointment was the kitchen running out of the lamb shank special.
