    Small cozy place with very good food. Their Swordfish arregenata delicious....good cheesecake as well. There was only one server for all the tables so it was quite leisurely but she handled it. Busy bar scene in adjacent area but the sound factor was great....restaurant was quiet.

    good service given the fact that there was only one waitress for the entire dining area. Food was not what was expected. I have had better seafood in diners. Dining room is cramped and felt bad for waitress bumping into every table. Separate bar area seems lively. But more likely than not will not be a repeat patron.

    Love your food. The wait staff was attentive, polite, and helpful. The ambience was festive. All agreed, in our group of five, that Rudy's is the perfect "red sauce" restaurant, not to mention the wonderful seafood, in Bergen County, to hold a festive little dinner party.

    A clean, quaint Italian Seafood restaurant in Cliffside Park, Rudy's is not just pasta and seafood, it is also Veal Marsala, Baked Clams, Scungilli Salad, Cajun Shrimp, and so much more.... My wife and I love the ambiance, the wine, the buzz of satisfied clientele, but most of all the food...classic Italian, cooked and served the way it should be.
