Delicious! Love Rudys. If you are looking for authentic Italian food this is the place. Great service and nice wine list
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!
Food was interesting and tasty
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.
Great meeting at t he door; Great atmosphere; Great food; wonderful time.
This is one of the best Italian restaurant in town!!
Rudys is our new favorite Italian restaurant. It's romantic, authentic and a fun place to go.
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!!
Great service and always good food. Never been disappointed here.
Great neighborhood place. Warm, welcoming,good food good value!
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.
Very personable staff with above average food. Outstanding!
Nice atmosphere. Food was very good. I had the shrimp & crab ravioli. Will definitely go back.
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.
Terrific meal, one of best Italian Restaurants in Charlotte.
Our favorite go to place for an always delicious meal and the best service in town!
Excellent food...excellent service...great atmosphere. Rudy's italian food was great and the value tremendous. I would definitely recommend for a family night out or even a date night!
This place is amazing. If able to go on Thursday for the gnocchi you will be in heaven. The owner is a sweetheart and always so kind. The staff is nice and extremely helpful when trying to decide from all the options.
We went to Rudy's after a movie and ordered Veal Parm, Gnoccis and Chicken Parm. All the dishes were very good, with large portions. The waiter was knowledgeable, attentive and pleasant.
Some of the tables are a little too close together and the only problem we had was the very loud, obnoxious group at the table immediately next to us. If not for them, I would have rated the noise level as moderate.
We had a great evening. Everyone enjoyed their dinner, and we could hear one another talk.! The corkage fee is $15.00 so we brought some special wine to share. Our server, may have been new, as he was not as attentive as he could have been and when he was at the table he appeared nervous. Despite that we had a great time and we will go back.
Rudy's is my favorite Charlotte Italian restaurant; it was excellent, as usual. I went with my family to celebrate three birthdays--mine and my two grandsons'--and brought a birthday cake, which was just fine with them. I don't know what to say about it except that the food and service are always terrific, and I like to go there when I'm in Charlotte during the winter. (I live in Massachusetts.)
One of our favorite restaurants! We love the food and the staff!
Always a good experience! Great food and neighborhood gem
Have been here several times and always incredible. My go-to for Italian.
